I don't mean the www links perse, but social and other types of links as well. When you google through prep forums or any other forums you sometimes come across nice but almost deserted forums. Just like a few folks in a small island. It occured to me that preppers sometimes think of "alliances' with like-minded folks. So, has it occured to you that members of this forum visit iother forums and invite members here and vice versa ? Maybe it is good in many way. For example, something happens to this forum for a few days, members can meet in the other forum . Also, you will have more experioenced preppers to share ideas with. This idea specifically focuses on small quiet forums scattered all over tha e-landscape, not the very popular ones with all kinds of members, the paranoid, and the Rambos ..etc. I do not have my own forum and I am not going to give examples unless it is necessary. The purpose of this discussiobn is to plough throw the idea of having mult-forum ring, and its +ve or -ve sides. Is it better to just maintain the narrower circle of freinds in one forum, or is better to have 3 or 4 forums loosely linked together as backup of each other ??? ... and who knows ... maybe one day you have to bug out and be taken in by someone in the other forum.
