    Default The future of 'Member Blogs' on BN

    When we move to the new forums, it won't have functionality for member blogs.

    The new forum software converts all vBulletin blogs into a single forum called Blog Archive. This is the easiest solution.

    However, there are a handful of members that still create blogs, and, I like the idea of members having the ability to still post 'blog-like' posts, so here's what I propose:

    We'll have a new forum called Member Blogs, where all of the current blogs will be archived into. We can adjust the template so that the posts are more bloglike.


    • Any member which currently has a blog, and wishes to continue blogging on the new site, please let me know in the comments below.
      • For these members I will create them a dedicated forum to act as a blog. I will set permissions so that only they can post in there, and they are able to edit, delete, their posts and comments.

    • All other blogs will be put in the blog archive


    Please let me know by the end of JULY 2021, if you wish to continue having a blog.

    After the end of July, blogs will close to new entries and comments. People that have asked to have their blog continued will be made a forum, and their posts will be transferred into it.


    Any questions, please let me know!

    I’m not too attached to my blogs, I used that function mainly to save my longer posts that I thought would be useful to refer to in future.

    More important to me is the functionality of the wardrobe, hopefully it can be retained in much the same way

    Yes, I still have fond feelings for my blog here, and I like being able to make Basenotes-centered posts there, so please keep me in the active bloggers for the new site!

    Personally never created blogs but I think it would be good to keep this option for BNers.

    I would like to have access to the blog, please. Thanks
    Also, can you tell me how people are able to find out about my blog? Is there a listing somewhere that can be accessed?

    There will a page which list them all, and any new posts you make will end up in the 'latest posts' feed along with the forums etc

    I strongly support that request, in view of how essential your two 'quests' have been for me, as well as many other Basenoters.

    Good! Nothing lost!

    The new format is great, really - the blogs almost seem "friendlier", like our personal corners of the regular posting space - because that's all they are.
