Why did you create a forum?

Post by Guest on July 11th 2008, 2:46 pm

I am not asking why you chose Forumotion to create a forum, but the reason why you decided to create an online community.

I created my forum because I was looking for something for my blog. I decided a forum would be a good asset to have, so I created one. A while after creating it, it failed, as did the blog. So I deleted the forum and the blog and thought I would focus on just one thing. So I did. I created my new forum, MediaMania. I don't know why I went with a Media forum, but I did and I love it.

Share you story with us.

i ask myself that question many times LOL. I first made a forum because i was lonely i guess, and thought i could run forums better than the ones i had seen. I started it with a topic that interested me, babies. But over the next 4 years its been a lot of hard work, ups and downs!

Because a friend of mine had an idea, we are all concerned about global food shortages, and how we in the west consumes so much of what is grown in poor countries, of the polution we cause by the carbon footprint that flying food accross the world creates.
so myfirnd came up with Incredible Edible Todmorden

THE last time Todmorden was meaningfully involved in any kind of revolution, the Napoleonic Wars were raging and Britain was in the process of transforming itself into the greatest industrial powerhouse the world had ever seen. Back then the currency of change was cotton. Two centuries later, it is plants and vegetables such as chard and rhubarb.

Surrounded on three sides by the Pennines' lush valley walls this pleasant, if unremarkable, town a few miles from the Lancashire border is an unlikely staging post for a foodie revolution, but campaigners behind the "Incredible Edible Todmorden" initiative believe
it can become a catalyst for communities up and down the country.

It's only been going since February and already they've set up a website and online forum, and started three community fruit and veg gardens and a seed exchange network.

Tim Lang, coined the term "food miles", at a national land conference.

"He said, 'forget about growing plants, grow vegetables'

My friend
With food prices and the big changes likely in the future, the best legacy we could leave our children is to make sure people understand more about what they're eating and where it comes from.

"We're not interested in being anything trendy or making money. We're just a town that recognises the need for people to reconnect with good, quality food that's grown locally."

With soaring food costs and growing concern about where produce comes from, it makes sense. "It has all sorts of knock-on effects, it's healthier, it cuts down on air miles and it helps create a greater sense of community because it encourages people to swap plants, so there's lots of spin-offs."

At first glance, Todmorden is just like any other market town, but dig a little deeper and you notice something is stirring here. In just a few months, vegetable patches and herb gardens, with everything from rhubarb to rosemary, have sprung up, transforming disused land
and grass verges.

"We've got herbs growing up at the railway station so that anybody coming off the trains can pluck whatever they want, and we've also put recipes up suggesting ideas how to cook things like rosemary or parsley." It's all there to be cooked and eaten, she says. "Some people said they'd be trashed within days, but no one's vandalised them, there's no fag ends or beer cans, it's fantastic."


She thinks one of the reasons it's proving so popular is down to the place itself. "This is a border town and quite often they feel neglected, and Todmorden has a history of getting things done itself, there's a real community spirit here."

"Tod's got a very strong sense of identity and I believe that if we're going to really get people reconnected with the land and the food they eat, it's got to revolve around somewhere with a sense of place.

the scheme is it's being driven by the local population, not by faceless, if well-meaning, quangos. "We don't want committees and strategists or rhetoric, we want people who will roll their sleeves up," says Pam.

The response has been remarkable. "People are literally stopping us in the street now and asking what they can do. It's really got people interested because something like climate change can seem too big, but food they can relate to, and it cuts across class and age."

Several local schools have set up allotments so that youngsters can grow their own fruit and veg, which can be sold at nearby markets, with any profits ploughed back into buying seeds and plants. There are also plans to hold cookery classes and introduce land management and horticulture courses. "A lot of kids at school don't want to be a brain surgeon or get into IT, but to be an apprentice to a local farmer, or to have a bakery business, that's quite attractive,"

Local firms are getting involved, too, with ambitious plans in
the pipeline for a lottery bid to help fund an organic fish farm. Other ideas are smaller, but no less clever. "We've got local cafs that instead of having loyalty cards that you can swap for a cup of coffee, you collect 'x' number of stamps and they then plant a tree instead."

Sceptics might dismiss what's happening here as little more than a fad, but Pam disagrees. "If we don't link farmers into it and if we don't get consumers and producers working together and buying into the Todmorden brand, then it's not sustainable, and these hillsides will fall back into non-production," she says. "But because more people are starting to buy local eggs, farmers are coming to us and saying they've never sold so many, and now they're talking about getting more free-range hens and pigs."

She believes the self-sufficiency drive can underpin the local economy. "The proof of the pudding is in the eating, and if
we have a brand of sustainable tourism then that's going to interest a heck of a lot of people who will come here, which means you have more B&B's and more jobs on farms and in cafs."

Campaigners admit they're unlikely to get everyone in the town eating local food, but they're adamant they can make a difference. "We're not unrealistic about what we can do, but we don't have to produce animals in Yorkshire and take them down to Cornwall to be slaughtered only to bring them back again.

"For me this town in the middle of the south Pennines can start a bit of a revolution, because if we get this right we can be reaping the rewards for generations to come."

That is Why I buit a forum, it isnt mine it belongs to the town of Todmorden

about 7 years ago when i came online
i belonged to a nice Transformer's fan based community.
got to know the admin and eventually (w/in two years) became co admin
we ran a forum of about 2k members for almost 4yrs ..
/
after a failed attempt at adding a mod to our forum, and several database crashes .. the main admin bailed out.
/
the comuinity was left w/no home .. so i decided to make one of my own and create a haven for our lost members ... that was 30Aug04 - Dark eFfectX was born (our original forum is now a arcade engine w/in the new|current site).

I made mine so I could help people out with the PSP. I was on PLaystation.com forums, and everytime someone would come in and ask for help with something people would say "Your such a Noob", or "Just Google it", or "Have you ever heard of a search button?" This would tick me off. Just help the poor soul out! Jeesh. Then I would go to other game sites looking for my own help, and I'd have to search through every different game console just to find the PSP. So I thought I'd make my own PSP specific forum where anybody can come and ask for help and get a friendly staff to help them out. I believe I have acheived my goal, even though it has been a hard fight. I have only been up for 6 months and have over a 1100 users. (Now if only I can get everyone to stay active... Rolling Eyes )

Not always the case,

I started my technical forum because i started my own company a while back and this just add's to that service

The best way to judge how things on your forum are going is to simply ask.

I get alot of people who say "thank you, its fixed." and when they say that then i know i have helped Smile

I have had people thank me for the forum and say that it was the best and friendliest one they've been to- they felt like the staff had known them forever and they just joined. So that does make you feel good about it Very Happy

I did not find a forum in Europe that had my interest as a subject and was aimed at people with my level of training.

If it is out there: sorry I didn't find you. I gave up searching after page 85 Rolling Eyes


@ mamabear
I like Todmorden though I have never been there; it was home to a painter who did a superb painting of a weaver in her cottage thumleft

we've been together 3 plus years now

Post by p4p on July 12th 2008, 6:11 am

Started at msn chat.this was a nightmare.Then we decided to go with the message board format.We've all been together 3 plus yrs. now.Started at ezboard.Until they moved it to Yuku(hated it).Then we moved everything before they moved us.I'd always wanted to use a phbb board but could never find one i liked all that well that was free and ez to use.Until NOW.
This is just what i had in mind.We're a Catholic board evangelizing.That was the main reason we started and we've kept on going.
We also started a forum here because we were hoping to build a community of users.
Like we had at our 'old' board.The one right before here.We all kind of hung out together and had a lot of fun.
Miss that.So we're working on this one:

Sppols of Thread
But our passion is JPII's call for a new evangelization.The spools of thread is just for fun and chat.
God Bless,

Al of these are really cool and interesting stories. Some of them are very long, and some of them not so long, but again, all are really fascinating.

Do we have any more stories out there that need to be shared??

I created a forum to start a Runescape clan. I was a member of several clans already and liked the look of it. I created it and it ran for about 3 and a half years with 300+ members before runescape made some horrible updates that scared over 500 thousand paying runescape members away. My clan crumbled after that. But I have helped and created several forums after that and hope to stay with forumotion for a long time.

For now, It's just a spot to hang out and have fun in. But eventually, I might make it into a legit, on subject with something, forum. But for now, It's just a fun house. Razz

I created a forum as part as one of our outreach ministries. We wanted to share the Word of God with those that are interested in knowing Jesus. We don't want to be judgmental or have a religious spirit.

Sometimes Christian forums can be some of the rudest forums to be apart of so I wanted to offer one that does not debate the Word...

That's why I created the forum I did..

I was on a this other guy forum and it was crashing. Me and had been left as the only two admins. So then he asked me if I wanted to help him admin a new site he wanted to make. I said sure. And WOTN was born.

Though truthfully, I go online because I have to put my avatars somewhere. I like to make them, and I like to post them. Can't post them up if their is nowhere to post them.

And I might as well be in charge of the site I am posting them on so I can have more space for my avatars.

I have been running an online game server for 4 years, for a game some of you may or may not have heard of, called Neverwinter Nights. I used proboards for 4 years, had over 1,800 members, but recently tired of their minimal functions, found this host, and you guys are great Wink

Anyways, the forums are a major part of our server, because we need player feedback on new improvements needed, bug and script fixes, and various other necessary subjects to keep our server at the top of the gamespy list ( where it's been for 4 years Wink )
