I have purchased a domain name but just don't know if there would be enough interest... If those of you that are interested believe a separate forum for switchers would be helpful, let me know.

Quote from: Dennis Markham on March 28, 2012, 07:38:38 PMI'm reluctant to create a section for switching. As Bill said the possibilities are endless with respect to subjects to be covered. I have considered creating another Forum strictly for switchers. I mentioned this last year to another member who was interested. I have purchased a domain name but just don't know if there would be enough interest as many switchers communicate via the TCI list. If those of you that are interested believe a separate forum for switchers would be helpful, let me know.
Quote from: G-Man on October 22, 2012, 01:28:57 AMWhile the centraloffice listserve is ok, please be advised that very little discussion takes place and of the little that does the topics are mostly about area code re-alignments and telephone network sounds by Evan Doorbell that are re-worked into montages blended with old-school music by Kitty Carlisle.
QuoteWhile Central Office is ok, what we are suggesting is very different from the listserve. The listserve format does not encourage the type of discussions we get going here on CPRF, and this format is much more friendly to new users. It is a more conversational format where people don't feel they have to live up to the expectations of the so-called experts.Both have their place, but as you can see here, there are more postings on a variety of topics than on the other listserves in a given day, and a freedom to post dumb questions, etc. without ridicule. Not everyone can be an expert, and a discussion area for switching certainly has a place.
Quote from: G-Man on October 22, 2012, 05:34:38 AMAny perceived slight that your feel you have received on the TCI listserve does not seem to have deterred you from continuing to request equipment donations and support for your projects. It appears that their members continue to provide you and others with whatever resources they can provide, frequently without charge. Of course this is good since you are providing a very worthwhile benefit to the citizens of your community and this is the reason we belong to and continue perpetuate our groups. I don't recall anyone criticizing the formation of the CPRG but I will search the archives in case I missed it. I would be surprised that anyone would give such criticism any credence since it is a very worth forum for not only novices but for the more seasoned collectors as well. I am sure if it happened the person who was critical would have been dismissed by the vast majority of the TCI/ATCA membership.
QuoteTCI is a wonderful listserve, and by and large its members are very helpful. I have never said that they aren't. And, yes, I still use and support TCI and continue to be a member.Dave
