    I am currently bracing for impact for the launch of the site when this tight little community will be overloaded with newbies. Let's try to work together and keep up the community feel of the forums and keep the general upbeat feel of the website going.

    I, for one have enjoyed this past month of conversing and using Milepoint beta and am cringing at the idea that our little world will be altered. Let's try not to let it happen.

    Thank you all for making this month fun for me!

    Let the gates open and the hoards come in!![​IMG]
     
  2. It will be very interesting how it shows in Google.
    Google wants the travel market and lots of speculation they will use that to their advantage over time.
    Of course SEO in its own right is now a science :)

    The key to keeping the feeling that we have here for the beta is simply encouraging people to follow the existing examples. Although small, the community already has a good deal of inertia in place from everybody who is active here. As long as we keep supporting it, then the trend will continue.

    I'm excited we are so close to launch! Do we have enough litter boxes for all the kitty's that keep popping up?

    Tomorrow 1 Mar is the official launch for MP or whatever it will abbreviated.​

    We all have various travel interests and are looking forward to building our communities of interests.​

    The Beta phase has been the occasion of intermingling and getting to know each a little better and an attempt to break down the parallel silos of various fora.​

    Old FT and other site habits are hard to kick......​

    Any suggestions on how to ensure that the larger community is not ignored as we return to building our favorite fora?​

    I think the key is encouraging people to frequent the forums such as this, off-topic, or the off-topic/private forum for elites.
