Title: If this site were to close How would we contact each other
Post by: genesis76 on October 05, 2017, 09:16:31 pm
After six years one of my sports sites shutdown with two days notice. I had to mrush to contact as many people that I could.

Got me thinking. What happened if it happens here.

If anyone wants to e-mail me their name they use here with contact info please feel free to do so. I guess in this case we would meet on the facebook page.

Any ideas

The Facebook group seems like a good bet and obviously it's used more now that new member approvals aren't happening here. Even though I didn't start visiting here until around 2009, I sure miss the old days.

I am a member of the facebook group but I know lots of people who still do not use facebook, and it's not the best when trying to search for specific topics. If anyone is interested, here are a couple of other options to rebuild the community.

https://www.reddit.com/r/backyardtheater/ (https://www.reddit.com/r/backyardtheater/) - This subreddit is not very active (currently only 7 subscribers).

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/159-outdoor-theaters/ (http://www.avsforum.com/forum/159-outdoor-theaters/) - I've lurked this forum in the past and saw some good info, but again it's not as active as this site once was.
