    This wouldn't be moving to FB, UAS is a separate group in itself, a bit like the UU group that's on there already.

    I know that the info here can't be migrated to FB but I can't use FB at all because of some stupidity they have going on on their backend. For giggles I tried to get into my account after my earlier post and sure enough, they need to confirm my identity. Again. (I should point out they already have several pieces of ID from me) Now they follow up the confirmation request with, "We currently can't verify your identity. Please try again later."

    My own problems aside I don't understand why people continue to use a platform that sells their data to shady organizations, conducts experiments on users without obtaining the users explicit permission, and I won't even bother to link to articles about the political shenanigans.

    Well you're not missing much. Facebook has become very boring. If it wasn't for the groups that cater to my many interests I'd quit. I'm not interested in social media for its own sake, and can't be doing with people's dramas on there!
    But on the other hand, at the moment with what's going on, its handy to keep in touch with family, keep an eye on people.

    Kudos you guys, for stepping up with those paid subscriptions!

    I've been away from this thread and have not reviewed all the posts yet, but did have an idea regarding the SIZE of the forum database:

    If the sheer SIZE of the database has become unmanageable, could we archive this current forum and start fresh with a new similar forum?

    Ideally, we could still search the old forum while participating in a new forum with a smaller, cleaner database.

    That's just my thoughts anyway. I'm not a scientist, although I sometimes play one on Facebook!

    With all the negative comments about Discord, I doubt it will end up being the new UU forum. if it is, I will most likely not use it very much since it does not serve the community very well.
