Friends,

A Facebook group for PMF has been created, and everyone is invited to join and check it out. The intent is not to move traffic from here to there, but the other way around. Hopefully it introduces the forum to more people, and gives them a gateway that isn't quite as intimidating as jumping right in here can be.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/2035723833326733/

A request: please don't overwhelm the new page with chummy smart-assery. That we are all friends is a great and natural result of our time here learning to make pipes, but that's not the point of the forum. The forum is to learn/help with pipe making. I'm hoping the Facebook group creates a less intimidating place to start to participate in what we have here, and I'm asking the veterans to please be conscious of that. Think of the Facebook page as the place we invite guests we want to impress, so fewer fart jokes is probably a decent strategy. I've never had a heavy hand with moderation here, but I can imagine being more strict there in order to facilitate a welcoming environment. Please don't make this hard. You have all gained a lot here, let's pass that on.

That said, I want us to offer valuable and honest critique. The point isn't to coddle and swoon over newbies. It's to help them. Do for them what was done for you.

In other news, this is the first of a few changes/features that will be rolled out in the next few months. Let's make PMF great again! :thumbsup:
