Forum Change

Post by grendel on Mon May 27, 2013 9:43 pm

As the UK Knapping Forum hasn't attracted much interest I was thinking about changing it a bit. One idea was to generalised it a bit and make it a prehistoric technology forum. I think it may be a too niche, we have had several members join interested in prehistoric stuff so perhaps a change would encourage them to participate more. I wouldn't be abandoning the knapping in anyway, just adding a whole section on prehistoric stuff and changing the forum name.

So for example adding forums for prehistoric ???? (suggestions needed)

What do you guys think, also any ideas?

Definately think it would be worthwhile. After all, most forums have other areas of interest, and we all have other 'related' hobbies/interests anyway.

Any suggestions to a forum name. And the new board subject areas to open up?

I was thinking something like Prehistoric Technology, Prehistoric Crafts, Everything or Anything Prehistoric.

As for new boards ???
Tools & Weapons: Archery, Slings, Atl Atl, misc weapons, axes
Crafts: leatherwork, woodwork, pottery, fibre, cordage
Metalwork: Bronze, Iron other metals
Skills: Cooking, tracking, foraging, plant ID, hunter gathering, agriculture,
Sites:
Other stuff:

Ay ideas would be appreciated

Prehistoric crafts sounds good so far.

Might be worth double checking any choices through google, just in case the site already exists.

How about along the lines of Ancient Crafts Revival, or Ancient Crafts. That way you're not excluding any period?

words that come to mind - Ancient, Primitive, Technology, Crafts, Prehistoric.

I quite like - Ancient Technology as this doesn't restrict you to a time period - anything from the first people to the middle ages is covered.

Ancient Craft - there's a site already by that name which is unfortunate as craft is a nice word to fit in with there officially being a craft boom in the UK at the moment.

I checked out the option on google and went for Tradition crafts forum because there seems to be a good number of blogs and society by that name that cover similar subject areas.

well a year on the name change hasn't done much, all the new members are knappers. Which do you prefer, the new name or old?

Sadly, the only two knapping non-members I know don't even own computers.

Kind of liked the old name, but there again, I only lurk nowaday.

i prefered the flint knapping with sub forum sections for crafts,  i see the http name is still uk-knapping, i think the only way to increase members would be an independent forum with a . com or .co.uk however i kind of like it how it is.
