I have now added a Discussion Forum to the www.eogn.com web site. It is in operation right now but is almost empty. Here is your chance to post one of the earliest messages.
The EOGN Discussion Forum is available now at http://www.eogn.com/forum. You can also reach it by clicking on "Discussion Forum" in the menu near the upper right of most of the web pages here at http://www.eogn.com.
The EOGN Discussion Forum is available FREE of charge to everyone. In fact, everyone may read messages in the forum without registering. However, in order to post a new message or to reply to an existing message, you must register first. Registration is free, and you are never asked for a credit card number. As always, I will never share your registration information with any vendors.
I elected to go to a registration-required system in order to cut down on spamming. You must be a registered user with a verifiable address before you can post messages. Of course, any spam-like messages that do get posted will be deleted.
To register, go to http://www.eogn.com/forum and click on REGISTER near the upper left corner. You will be asked for a user name and a password. You can use most any user name you wish so long as nobody else is already using it. You will also have to supply a valid e-mail address, which is NOT visible to other users. (Forum administrators can see your e-mail address, however.)
A registration confirmation message will be sent to the e-mail address you supplied. Once you receive the message a few seconds later, click on the link in that e-mail message. You will instantly have full read/write access to this message forum and will be a full member.
I plan on keeping the Discussion Forum in operation for ninety days, then reviewing its operation. If the forum provides a positive contribution to the genealogy community, I'll continue its operation. However, if after ninety days or at any time in the future it has degenerated into a general "complaints board" with constant bashing of vendors and similar non-productive messages, I'll delete it.
Welcome to the EOGN Discussion Forum! If you have suggestions for improvements, please post them in the "Messages About This Message Forum" section at http://www.eogn.com/forum.
