Facebook

Post by Rarka on Mon Aug 29, 2011 8:53 pm

Hey guys,

Not sure how many of you into the social networking thing, but I was wondering if it would be a good idea to make a Facebook group for people of this forum to join?

I thought it would be a cool way for members of this forum to post random updates, photos, and quick questions (rather than making new threads or having to search?). And theres a chat box thing on these too, if your terribly bored or need to ask something.

I'm in a couple of groups for other things already, and I think it would work perfectly for our little community / hobby.

Anyone else keen on it? Smile

On another note, anyone else out there seen the huge rise in use of Facebook by GW stores? What do you think of it?

I hear that so much haha, I disagree that your putting your life up there, just share some fake info or no info at all, you control what people can see.

Would be great to get you on board if we make the group Aubec Smile

But... it's facebook.

I'm allergic to facebook and twitter and other such things.

Although it is a good idea for others, you won't see me there either.
Simply because i have an innate dislike for facebook. Same with McDonalds, i was tutored since childhood to never eat there.

I have eaten one of their "cheeseburgers" (to call it that is borderlining false advertising, i call it a nice warm sandwitch)

Anyway, i don't think there is any trouble with finding stuff on this site. If you think there is, you could try to summon the arch-lurker himself, inquisitor lord. Our most secretive admin.

I feel the same as Klomster. Heck, I don't even own a cell phone. However, after much pressure I finally made my own Facebook account just recently in order to keep up to date with the players and goings-ons of my local 40K and Warmahordes community. I must say it's a great tool for that to quickly find pick-up games, ask quick questions, see what people are selling and getting general gaming info. Being a forum though I'm not sure how FB would serve us better but I'm definitely open to the idea.

You don't own a cellphone?

Mind you cellphones can be VERY practical.
I only have a cellphone.... am i right that a cellphone and mobile phone is the same?


Anyway, get one that you can call with, and a crappy camera, nothing fancy.
Shouldn't cost much and give you a bit more freedom.

Klomster, I COMPLETELY agree with the McDonald's thing, 100%. hahaha
If this becomes popular, it wouldn't be complete without your input, at least make a fake account so you can contribute an album of some of your models and projects? Smile (Theres about 50 pages in your section of the forum! A Facebook album would be a lot cleaner to scroll through haha)

I've made the group, since there was a few points of interest:

http://www.facebook.com/groups/250475934992132/

And I have no trouble finding things on here, but I thought it would work a little better if all our photos were in albums, e.g. Rarka's album, Aubec's album, etc etc. Would be easier than having to look through a thread page by page, and I'm a teenager so this is so much more my area Wink

So make it official and let the community know there is a page in FB. As said before the more the merrier.
