Good evening! I’ve got some exciting news: After some weeks of work to get everything working, The ForwardKY Discussion Forum is finally up and running! You can read more about this below – but even more important, you can start posting on it tonight! (In fact, as soon as I send this newsletter, I’m going to be hanging out there to reply to your posts.)
This Tuesday is the primary, of course. I’m a poll worker, so I’ll be at my assigned location from 5 in the morning to 7 at night. (Got to love those 14-hour days.) I’ve already voted, of course, since I can't vote on Tuesday. The Dem ballot was, shall we say, short. But, even so, I wanted to not neglect the privilege of voting, since so many have done so much to make it possible. Hope you feel the same and will vote, regardless of the shortness of the ballot.
Read on to learn about the Forum. And thanks for being a member of Forward Kentucky!
Forward Kentucky launches new discussion forum
After much work, including some custom coding, the Discussion Forum is up and running and ready for YOUR comments and discussion!
There are two main goals for this new part of Forward Kentucky:
- To provide a place for robust discussion of politics, both inside and outside of Kentucky, without the discussion devolving into the typical news site comment section; and,
- To build a community of our members, where we get to know each other, hear from each other, and have a place to be our political home
Obviously, none of this will work without actual discussion: new topics, new replies, and so on. So, as soon as you finish reading this newsletter, please click this link to go to the start page for the Forum! Then go to the Lounge category, to the Introduce Yourself topic, and do just that!
An important technical note
The Forum uses single-sign-on (SSO) to log you in. So, be sure you are logged in on the main ForwardKY site before trying to go to the Forum.
