Its called “Supertaco Refugees”. Just search for it. You have to put in a request and I will accept it.


It’s not a perfect fix, and it would require you to....gasp!.... use your actual real name, but it might be a way to stay in touch as this place burns to the ground.

I have met some amazing people on this site and there is amazing content in the form of trip reports, videos, historical threads that could be easily cut and pasted over to a Facebook Group before this place turns the lights out. And like I said, it’s not perfect, Facebook would immediately own it all anyway.... but they own all my other stuff so who cares.

It has been created and is now up and running, but I would have discretion to boot people off if they become violent, foul, hateful, etc....But these rules and rags are standard fare for Facebook groups and have been for years. A couple of the groups that I belong to have over 5000 members. When people use their real names, things tend to stay fairly civil.

I have started with a whole bunch of initial invites of some of you who are already Facebook friends with me. Then you can invite people as you want. We can make it as private or as public as we want. But it would be cool to immediately cut and paste some of the better ST content ( historical threads, good writing, informational posts) into the group immediately. Just make sure it’s your own content as per Cmac and RJ’s request.

I would love to stay in touch with a lot of you, and many of us are already Facebook friends, but getting people like Donini, Largo, Werner and some of the regulars could create enough of a critical mass to create something good over there. Like I said, not a perfect fix, but a good way to keep in touch as this thing falls apart. I can explain to some of your old fogeys how it works if you’re keen.

Scott

Come and find us!


P.S. I ended up using the name SUPERTACO after RJ specifically requested that I did not use the name Supertopo. Hopefully we don’t get sued by a taco truck user.

As mentioned, no FB for me, either.

Kudos for the effort, though.

I'll have exactly zero to do with FB. There are probably many like me.

A ST replacement has to be a genuine replacement, which means that somebody without an ax to grind (via heavy-handed "management") needs to put up and manage an actual forum.

The problem, imo, is that ST evolved organically, and that sort of evolution can't be just "made" to happen, even by "creating the right conditions."

FB is, imo, certainly not even "the right conditions."

Thanks for the effort, seriously, but FB is not the answer.

Edit: I see that as I typed this, several others agreed on the FB point. Again, there are many of us.

Of course micronut's no one can find....but my illegal Super Topo Campfire is up and running on FB and I can't figure out how to change the name. Go figure.

Lynnie. Mine is up and running and I would be glad to transfer it to yours to make it easy. I’m just glad you are stoked and that we are on the same page. If you want to delete yours, go ahead, I already have invited about 140 people and it seems like it’s gaining some traction with about 30 members so far.

If you want to keep yours, I can shut mine down immediately but we would need to do so pretty quickly.




Its called “Supertaco Refugees”. Just search for it. You have to put in a request and I will accept it. Badabigbaddaboom.

Just let me know what you think. I’m just going to keep this thing rolling and be available.
I might even delete this thread in a day or so to keep some continuity and draw people to the other thread. Just thinking out loud.

I can't find it?! And I'm familiar with FB. Typed in your title in the top upper left and clicked on the magnifying glass. I'd love for you to take over.

Micronut, rincon, I can't find it; it must be a hidden or closed group. Can you send me an invite? Glenn Woodsworth gwoodsworth@hotmai.com

Finding this group is difficult, because simply searching for "Supertaco Refugees" doesn't show it. I'm not a facebooker, and it took me several tries to find a way to search for "groups". And since I stumbled into it by accident, I can't tell anyone how to do it.

Maybe one of you facebook types can provide clear directions?
