I can't believe that it's up so fast! I wasn't going to post until one of you did first in case you didn't want us to do it yet.

Can I give the link out to the people at Diaspora, or should we wait until you two have some time to get it together?

Not sure. would it be better to wait until the domain name kicks in? it's a uuuuugly url right now.

I'm not sure how disruptive start-up admin cp stuff will be for someone who's logged in at the time.

Are we Rational Talk instead of Talk Rational on purpose?

No, not on purpose. When I figure out how to change that, I will!

I fixed that nasty setting that makes you click a quick reply button on another post before using the quick reply text box.

The thing that drove me crazy was wondering if anyone else was viewing the forum at the same time. I nearly wore out my refresh button.

Christina,

You spearheaded this whole thing and now have your own board. I just want to say super congratulations and thanks to you and the others. I hope this becomes everything you wanted.

Morning : )

Not only are posts in order, I can edit my typos and abysmal grammar again. I was tired of looking like an escapee from 'Illiterates Are Us'.

This is so cool.

Thanks Rex. I may have been the one to get disgusted first and kick up a fuss, but there's no way I would have even considered this if it hadn't been a group effort with organized and experienced people who wanted the same type of thing. This is going to be fun.

25 registered members, and over 300 posts and it's been less than 24 hours. I couldn't ask for a better start!

I think that's pretty good seeing as the only place it's been announced is FF and through PMs.

Yes, and I even worked for a few hours.

Raven and Alethias are doing all the hard work. I'm just yammering.

I think I got a good 6 hours sleep, but I spent some dream-time configuring very strange forums, mostly about woo. An Ouija forum, a ghosthunters forum, a UFO sightings forum...
