Yeah, that message has been there since the day after he made the announcement on the blog about shutting down the forum. The crazy thing is you can still post over there despite their pop-up message saying otherwise. i just went over there and re-posted a thread about this forum existing.

It appears that MDA can't even get it's crap together to shut down a forum. Rolling Eyes

I just reposted over there.



Perhaps MS is happy Ontario has created a new forum and took the burden off him and his team...

I'm pretty sure he'll never admit that! I did not join the FB "forum" but I will admit to being embarrassingly interested in whether or not this forum has ever been mentioned over there. And, furthermore, I have to wonder if it HAS been mentioned whether or not the message was kept or deleted by MS or his worker bees.


Just a thought: shouldn't we add some posts with basic info on PB? I've always liked Rig D's way of explaining things to newbies. Wink Clear and precise instructions.

Love this idea! Yes, that is a job for Rig D! I think it would be good for newbies who have basic questions.

Honestly.

I never saw it on the blog, and I noticed that you had some post 12/1 postings.

It also says that there weill be a lot of manpower henceforth. Why not at the forums? I don't find FB conducive at all for topical discussions, like scrapple or veggies.

First of all the original 'We're shutting down the forums' blog was posted on Dec 4th, which makes the message that pops up a lie...

Second: I posted another link to here at that same blog to inform people searching for an alternative. Very Happy

Third: even though I easily could, I will not log in to MDA forums again. The day I joined here, was the day I gave up on them. Having been very loyal and helpful for a long time, enough is enough.

Facebook is crap for discussions, and my journal is important to me. I’m so glad we have a new forum!

Same here. When I joined this site I’d completely given up on MDA forum. I would have appreciated a more truthful “We are going a different way with our buisiness model and won’t be putting any more resources into this forum cause Facebook is free”......rather than the “hang tight gang! We are gonna fix this reeeeal soon!” they tried to spin for 2 years. Lol. No, won’t be joining FB group.

I haven't joined either. But I will admit, as I posted on another thread, that I am interested to know if anyone has mentioned us over there as an alternative.

From MDA's marketing perspective, Facebook is a good choice for them to capture demographics of forum users. It's a big benefit for their direct marketing profiling efforts. It is a poor choice if you want to avoid being profiled and sold to commercial interests. I assumed the forum would eventually move to Facebook as that was one of the first things MDA implemented with the Primal Health Coach community.

This forum is the best thing that could happen, at this time, in the primal community. I'll be spreading the word.

I've stopped logging on to MDA too. The forum used to be great and the long, slow decline, trolling etc was so sad to witness. This is a great new forum and I hope it really gets a head of steam up! Thanks Ontario!

Spam Susan from China is still active... all forums but 2 at MDA are showing advertising/spam as of today.

So much for 'cleaning up and closing down'.
