If we are discussing platforms (I'm not actually sure what this thread is about) ... I'd like to see cohousing discussions move towards a message board/forum format where you can have categories and long-term threads. The problem with the current platforms (coho-l and Facebook) is that neither is very good for finding past discussions or following threads. Search is inconsistent, people change thread titles, and (especially in FB) good information sinks out of sight before anyone sees it, to be lost forever. If we had a message board setup, we could have long-term categories and threads like this: CH kitchen Design Dishwashers FlooringLaundry room Rent or buy Regular size or commercialPet policiesSales strategiesEtc. This would capture information and make it easily accessible indefinitely. People could start new threads if their question isn't covered. Instead, we get the same questions posted every few weeks because nobody can find previous info in the archives, and people with expertise stop participating because they're tired of answering the same questions over and over. (I see this in my neighborhood group, which moved from a message board to FB because of convenience, but the quality, usefulness, and tone have really deteriorated.) Concerning communication -- I use Slack at work for certain things. It's fine for quick exchanges but not so great for saving and retrieving information. I steer discussions towards email if they get into an exchange of substantial information that I might need to reference again in the future. Katie Henry
