Forums going to read-only soon: where to go now?

I'm guessing those who are still coming here have seen the red header text that the forums are going to read-only status on 11/20.

Those of you who are going to be sad about the lack of places to talk names should know that Laura Wattenberg's new venture, Namerology, has an affiliated forum where you'll find many familiar users already having passed the torch: https://forum.namerology.com/ 

We'd love to have you join us there while we figure out what the rebooted BNW website experience might look like.

I missed that text,  I've noticed with the new site,  it seems to be a lot quieter than this one

It's quieter because it's still very new and still picking up steam, but for a brand-new site, I think it's getting active remarkably quickly. I would also encourage anyone who enjoys these forums to check in over there, it's a lot of the same people and the more people who post over there, the more active it will get :)

(Also, that site hasn't yet been infested with the porn spam, which is unfortunately the first thing I saw when I checked in here today).

Weirdly, I only see the notice occasionally--maybe a third of the time.

Yes, come on over to the new site! It's the same thoughtful analysis of names and naming trends, with a slightly different organizational style and far less spam :).

A quick heads up that baby naming questions are also welcome at the new site: I hope the many questions here find a new home when this forum is inactivated soon!

Read only status seems temporary?
