Keep the Community, Ditch the Site

Rate: 4 Flag

 

I should note that I intend to keep an eye on OS as things progress, and probably will comment on anything pinteresting posted on OS that is not double posted on OurSalon, though I may start a Spam identity to do so, and will probably encourage the poster to join us at OurSalon. Other than that, there is nothing like voting with you feet ( or fingers as the case may be, it REALLY IS quite a bit of trouble to type with "Tiger Toes"- which is why it really *7^58978&Y&88 's me off to put up with the trouble this site causes me--) Other than as above noted:

 

 Open Salon is a community that uses the OS website to stay in touch with a core group of people who enjoy writing and discussing all kinds of topics. We, the writers, are the community; Open Salon is only a platform. We believe the OS platform has become incapable of supporting the community that has developed here. We want to preserve our community as much as possible. The destination of choice for the greatest number of OS members has become OurSalon, a site that was created as a sort of lifeboat for Open Salon members in the event that Open Salon closed down. We have established memberships over there and many of us habitually double-post.

That has proven effective, but the result is a community split between two locations, complete with duplicate conversations, many between the same people at both locations. Until Open Salon becomes technically viable again, we would rather collect it at a single location, as that would result in less duplication of effort and, more importantly, far less frustration for the members of this community. That frustration has resulted in some community members leaving
us altogether.

Let’s try this again. We will not engage in any activity on Open Salon for a minimum of a month. This will allow us to centralize our community in a location that is fully functioning. After that period, if Open Salon has addressed its problems, those of us who want to will revert to double-posting.

If you are ready to join in this trial move, please post this letter on your blog right away and make sure you open an account on Our Salon. We will plan to begin the trial on Monday morning, November 19, 2012.

When you comment, please give us an opinion as to how long you think the period above in brackets should be. Up to now, majority of expressed opinion is a month. Also, the tentative title is new as of 11 AM EST Thursday and I'd like opinions/suggestions. Thank you.

Monday, November 19th... all right you're on. Thirty days with no activity on Open Salon. No posts, no comments, no ratings, no sign-in, nothing, nada, zip, zero... maybe Jacob and his folks will get the message. Please feel free to copy and cross post, read and rate all posts linked to or bearing this related Headline: Keep the Community, Ditch the Site. Maybe if this is all Jacob can see in the activity feed, he'll get something done over the next month.

See you all over at Our Salon.
Jonathan suggested 4 weeks.That is a very long period of time,but it might help get the matter settled.I hope so.
As for me,Our Salon remains to be the alternative only.

It is my sincere and hopeful wish that full use of this wonderful site will one day actually be restored so we may blog freely here once again.
