I'm looking into setting up a new forum so everyone can keep in touch.

I don't post a lot but this forum has been very helpful to my parenting skills and I think more importantly, my understanding of the world in general.

I welcome suggestions for the site name, what subforums people would like etc.

I think keep subforums minimal and simple to start with, and then they can evolve as we work out what we want.

Oh cool, I put some feelers out to contacts.

But happy for some one else to do it! 

I'll put my hand up to be a mod in TTC threads if you like?

I would like a managing money thread and we should probably have a pregnancy thread. Ooh, a recipes thread would be good too.

My original name suggestion was a bit cranky ☺️, maybe the new forum could be called Essential Journey, as we're onto the next phase?

My plan of attack is something like this:

Register a domain name.

Set up the web host.

Collate suggestions for forums/subforums/content.

Install and configure the forum software (likely to be open source, so may not be quite as fancy as EB).

Request for moderators for each forum etc.

 

I'm happy to do the technical side of things but I won't have any influence whatsoever on the content of the site.

What about aussieparents? 

I was just thinking simplified sections. 

Misc

TTC (with an RSG thread) 

Birth to 5yo

Primary

HS 

And a covid section! LOL

Most Due in groups go straight to FBN, so in the TTC section, at the end of each TTC October thread for example, someone can link a Due in group FB page that they created?

Another forum I post in has a pay to use model. 

They charge about $20 a year. 

You have to pay after 1000 posts - or you can rebirth.

I said in the other thread I might be willing to mod, if I wasn't alone in it.  I have modded on another forum for years!

Thank you - the hosting costs are quite reasonable, and I'm pretty sure I can keep it going without needing any contributions - I'd much rather it be free for everyone.

It's just what I need to keep me busy outside of work, I've been bored out of my isolated brain for ages now!

For the domain name, can it be a ".au" one? I think keeping "aussie" out of the name might help encourage cultural diversity, but with the ".au" make it more likely that folk who find us and join are closer to home IYKWIM?

That's a good idea!

Would be happy for it to be a paying forum if needed. Definitely in although I have zero IT skills to assist.

I like Essential Forums. 

We have quite a few long term, valued members who don't have children.
