Hello and welcome - both to our old and new users!
Our old community, Redly, is no more. But all your content and contributions are still here. It's just that we have gotten a new community name and look. We have also moved away from our former focus on user groups (don't worry, if you want, you can still create your own little group or club) and want to put our effort more on the traditional aspects of an online forum.
As you can probably imagine, our new name Msgboard stands for Message Board. Online message boards were once one of the most identifiable and popular features of the Internet, but their former dominance have been taken over by social media and popular mobile apps. But that's not to say that online message boards or forums are no longer relevant. Online communities such as this one still exists, and they are still thriving.
Social media sites are great. We love them and we use them ourselves all the time. But they have become so huge that it is hard to get noticed among the countless of other users and noise on these platforms. They offer a large potential audience but still manage to make it hard for people to meet other like-minded people, and to have meaningful discussions that doesn't disappear and is forgotten the next day. The huge social media giants - like Facebook and Twitter - knows about this. That is why they've lately been rushing to introduce features that resembles the unique characteristics of smaller communities and message boards. And let's not forget about the privacy issues these popular social media sites and apps have.
And it is in this area where online message boards and forums excel at being better communities than the huge social media platforms. Message boards and forums offer a better experience for meaningful discussions, and they offer their users more privacy and anonymity.
Msgboard.net is designed to be a friendly online community for everyone. Here you can participate in discussions in our forums, meet new people and friends, share and upload images to our photo gallery, and easily create your own blog.
Hopefully msgboard.net can be your next favorite online community.
See you all in the forums!
