This subforum has never seem like a good place for geodesic dome posts, although Ecomodder has been accepting of me overall. I've never used social media and other forums like Ecorenovator, but i think I'm going to sign up there.

What do y'all think?

Looks interesting; I'm sure they will welcome your contribution.

... I'd just hold off on any mention of concertina wire. :P

I emailed them asking about their privacy policy and Creative Commons. I forgot to ask about pseudonyms.

I'll spend some time reading there. Not sure I'll go through the trouble of registering. BTW I own an empty lot in Detroit that I bought for $2400 about 5 years ago. Wonder if Detroit will ever bounce back? I guess it surely will

Unfortunately the group doesn't seem to have done much since 2014

It's a little better than Saving @Home.

It's different forum software. I can't find any profile page, but I did get a first email notification of thread traffic.

Did that forum just start?
Looks like they hardly have any traffic.

Did it just end? It currently 403s at this time, in this browser, at this location.

I was going to check the number of registered users. I'd watched it grow from 148 to 150-something over a few days. ME Andy seems to suggest 2014.

It's back up. To be fair it does say Beta in the upper right corner.

They're up to 235 posts and 166 users.
