Get online and grab up all of the Internet real estate related to your neighborhood, and make good use of it before another group grabs 'em. As these things grow in value in the future, you’ll have negotiating power in sharing them.
Also, I advise not use Nextdoor.com for your neighborhood community. They cut us loose and handed ours directly over to the NA.
How does this work? I’ve noticed a lot of people from my neighborhood joining Nextdoor recently and I’ve assumed it was because they’ve been wanting to avoid the nastiness of the Yahoo Group. Currently, our Nextdoor group is fairly friendly. I hope this doesn’t change!
Whenever I’ve heard of people having problems with moderators deleting posts or doing things against the terms of NextDoor, they’ve just contacted NextDoor and NextDoor has taken care of the moderator very quickly and resolved the issue by allowing the post to be reposted. If you haven’t contacted NextDoor support when something like that happens, it might be worth doing. If it happens too many times, they should remove the moderator.
Why did they kick you out, @carlwebb? While we strive for openness and transparency in the FAN forum, a lot of other online forums seem to be heading the other way - towards being more closed off and exclusionary.
