    Regarding this, the forum is not going to go away. There are people who are not on Facebook, some who are pretty much only on Facebook, and plenty who are on both.

    There are many functions that the forum and website can continue to serve, and there are many plans in the works for improvements, such as a feedback system (already purchased, just need to configure) as well as more ways to find other hobbyists (Members Map), LFS maps, a Q&A / Wiki for all levels of hobbyists...These are just a few of the things that I've been looking at. Plus, the next version of the forum software was just officially released (but that's a few months down the road, minimum)

    Also, we are keeping livestock sales off the FB group and keeping that on the forum (for several reasons).

    There is also a pretty good chance that we will be changing the term "GIRS Member" to something else, because "member" is the term used for anyone who joins a Facebook group, so that's going to just confuse everyone (at least, those new to the club). It's already a term used by most forum software to define the same thing (a "registered member") so that's been on the block for a while IMO.

    We have a lot of things in the works for 2018!

    Is it possible to list livestock for sale on GIRS and then drop the link into the FB group? Or is that crossing the line?

    I was going to suggest this as the appropriate route to handle this scenario. Does everyone else agree?

    @Actuary@Actuary we're continuing the internal discussion about this and we'll have a decision on this soon.
