...be sure to post on the old forum where you are going, so people can find you. Our community was locked out of "our" forum about 4-1/2 years ago. Although we started a new bulletin board immediately, we could not post where we were going. We lost about half of our members in the process. Since the forum in question isn't being moderated, you should be able to post a link to a new forum and have it stay there. We now have an "anyone may read, only members may post" policy. Not an ideal situation, but better than the problems we had previously.
