Folk dancers, this is the first attempt to provide a space for you to share updates and connect with one another while we’re dark. It’s set up like a blog page with comments rather than a full fledged forum, which would be more involved to set up and may not be needed.
Topics are listed in the box on the right, and you can participate by entering comments under any topic. The topics are really just guides and may overlap. You’re free to enter whatever you want under any topic, but of course please stay within the purpose, which is to connect up and support one another. (Political rants for example might be better taken to facebook or elsewhere.) Also be sure not to enter any sensitive personal information, since this is a public space.
The first time you enter a comment, you’ll be asked for your name and email address. Comments will display with the name shown but never the email address. After you write your first comment, there will be a delay while it’s sent to the moderator and approved. This is to prevent spam and unwelcome content. Once you’ve entered one comment and it’s been approved, any comments you enter thereafter will be displayed immediately without waiting for moderator approval.
You can enter comments below for this topic to suggest new topics or other changes or improvements, ask questions, or to comment on how you like the forum and what’s working or what isn’t.
