That Poppy has never posted and hasn't been seen since January. So I think we should be able to sort that out, no problemThere's already a Poppy over there. That one has to change.
Yes, the domain will redirect everyone to VF, and maybe I'll put up a notice or something to explain. I will be able to send emails to everyone who hasn't opted out of such emails. And yes, I will go to great lengths to preserve usernames of longstanding members.What happens when those members who haven't been active try and log in VV? Will they be redirected? Will you be able to send emails to the whole member list?
What about Poppy? Will first Poppy win?
There's a thread called 'Change of ownership' in the 'Announcements/News' forum.Indian Summer, you said that the reaction has been positive over there. I don't see an announcement or thread discussing this? Do you mean the reaction of mods/owners that you've spoken to privately?
If only I owned Veggie Boards as well!I've noticed that on Veggie Boards there are people coming up with posts like "interested in transitioning to vegetarianism" and the forum is so quiet they are getting little or no replies, whereas Vegan Forum and Veggie Views are not attracting as many as these posts even though the forums are more active.
Yes! Yes!It would be nice to get some of those people to post here instead so we can integrate them into community and encourage them to go vegetarian or vegan.
A nice thought, I like it! I'm considering getting an add-on that tracks "referrals" - so if members here, or more likely on the future united VV & VF, get someone else to sign up as members, then that is something for which the member will be receive "points". We all like points, right?It might be a good idea for 1 or 2 of us who are already members there but not regular posters to keep an eye on that forum and at the very least make sure that posts like "please help me" (for example) don't get completely ignored.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I like points that I can eventually do something with. Perhaps we can have a point system in which if we earn enough points we get certain perks, TBD later.If only I owned Veggie Boards as well!

Meat farmer stated how they view animals and what they believe is humane treatment, and asked for our reasons to shun meat.Maybe I sounded a bit harsh here. To clarify, if this turns into a discussion for and against meat eating and/or production, that would be against our rules. But if we're just discussing reasons why people go vegetarian, that is of course absolutely fine.
Yes, my plan is to keep the veggieviews.com domain, and maybe automatically redirect visitors to veganforum.org. Preferably, there should be a message there to explain, so yes, I'll try to include that.IS - Is there a way that you can keep the VV address just for the purpose of posting a note to direct people to the new site?
I'm thinking of people who are still members, but who haven't logged in in a long while, or people who stopped being members for one reason or another. I would hate it if someone came looking for us but couldn't find us. There are so many people I miss.
Thanks, IS!Yes, my plan is to keep the veggieviews.com domain, and maybe automatically redirect visitors to veganforum.org. Preferably, there should be a message there to explain, so yes, I'll try to include that.
