Forum Closing – Feb 2

It’s really happening – for real this time! We will be closing the forums this Friday, Feb 2nd, in an effort to keep scammers and bots away while we update plug-ins, and in working on transferring our content to the new RAGBRAI website.

It’s impossible the replace the irreplaceable but I do have a few suggestions and welcome yours as well.

It’s too bad RAGBRAI hasn’t provided a reasonable alternative for the forum.
Facebook is awful — many, many people avoid it like the plague it is.
The Reddit site is one spam advertisement after another.
I guess there will be a lot of desperate people soon, with no way to attend RAGBRAI.

Texting with the people here has been very nice, and very helpful, .
I’ll miss you all, once we’re cut off. :-(

Testing … testing.

It appears the forum is still here and functioning, although I see that the powers-that-be have removed the link to it from the menu on the home page.  Maybe it’s an oversight, or may they’re following a policy of benign neglect and intend to leave it up and running, an orphan in cyberspace, accessible only to the cognoscenti who have been here before.

Yea, I see it too. I always get here from a saved “favorite” so I didn’t even realize much had changed but it appears it is here if you can get here :)
