This forum now costs me a fair amount of money. No one has stepped forward to help. It’s not pocket change, and it also costs me a fair amount of personal energy behind the scenes maintaining this site.
I am leaving the field, and I’m sorry the site hasn’t been more useful on the whole, but I can’t keep it up.
If anyone here feels that this site is a valuable resource, I encourage you to take the steps necessary to create a new forum that could benefit the field.
I think we have had some good times here, but it’s time for me to look forward.
Best of luck everyone, keep documenting if you can.
Earlier I said I’d like to handle everything but the community management aspect of this site to someone else, but if nobody’s willing to step up to commit to that, I’d rather take on all of that work than have this site go totally dark. So again, if anyone would like to work with me on running this site that’d be ideal, but if nobody steps up, Pat, maybe we could chat sometime about how to pass the baton.
Somehow I missed your earlier post @pathall This site has been helpful to many, quiet periods and all. I have found it more useful and interesting than other forums or email groups, even though I can’t always keep up with it. I alwasy recommend it. Many thanks to you for making it happen! All the best on your next step!
It looks like several people from the earlier post wanted to find a way to keep this site alive. I guess nothing happened? It’s summertime, which means I am overly optimistic about my time management abilities, so I’ll add my name.
It doesn’t look like there is a good date for everyone but there are two possible blocks of time next week: Tues 7/12 11am/2pm-5/8pm PT/ET or Thurs 7/14 9am/12pm-1/4pm ET I prefer the earliest time on Tuesday. Any preferences?
I wasn’t feeling too well last week so obviously an invitation did not get sent. It looks like not many of us are available for the rest of July and I am out most of August. However, if next Thursday 7/20 at 1pm Mountain Time works for more than 2 of us, I think it is worth chatting. Let us know!

Hey all! @SarahRMoeller@fauxneticien@cbowern@ldg@katelynnlindsey Sorry I missed this discussion - is there a space where folks are keeping up with the future of these very useful forums? We’ve been having some discussions at ELP about whether/how we could integrate this community into our upcoming Discourse forums when the new site launches (likely January), and would love to talk more…
