So as we all age and our lives get busier, it's inevitable that some of us may drift away from this wonderful little place. I think it would be nice to create a group on some other, bigger social media site where we can all stay in touch with each other's real world lives. I'd really like everyone to get involved in this, but if you do not want to or are not comfortable with it that's understandable. I'll try to reach out to some of the older members who are less active now, and hopefully bring this to their attention as well.

Right now, we have a small group set up on snapchat, which is what I prefer, but I'm open to change on the platform. I made a poll so we can go with a majority vote here and hopefully get as many people as possible to join.

Personally, I'd really like to stay connected with you guys and I think this would be a great way to do it, but obviously I can't help it if you guys want to shut me out of your lives. :razz:

As of now, if you want into the groupchat leave your snapchat username down below, PM it to me, or add me and let me know who you are(I'm kboland0).

Would this drive more members away from an already small website?

Probably, but I also think it would allow us to interact more than people are right now

I like how Snapchat works, that or text message/GroupMe/something similar would be my preference

I use GroupMe a lot, though Facebook would be my second option.

Of course, there's always Sky-*mauled by a family of bears*

According to the poll, we've got 2 for snap, twitter, and FB, along with 1 for other, which is groupme I'm assuming.

I didn't expect us to be this varied in our opinions :lol:

whoa, way late to this, but I would say Facebook would be best

snapchat's probably the second option, though I genuinely don't know what my snapchat name is...

Anyone have any good ideas to solve this? The poll is split pretty evenly four different ways, I don't think we'll be able to please everyone :(

tbh I don't think we'll ever find a perfect solution, too many of us have some but not all social networks. idk if it's possible to get everyone to one platform and if so idk what the easiest thing for that would be.

I would maybe propose having 2 chats: one like the snapchat group we have now, where we can just informally talk to each other or whatever, and another that's for emergency situations -- i.e. if the site went down for good and we needed to notify everyone, we would have that as a way to keep in touch later

idk tho

I like the idea. I think in that case, GroupMe could be the emergency situation one to notify everyone of what's going on.

that's what I was thinking, it's the easiest to sign up for (I think) and as long as we only used it for emergencies (though that could be discussed later), we're more likely to have people there
