Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

Just asking for a favour from those who are interested in topics regarding: studying, the mind, mental health, religion, memorisation, productivity, debate.. I have created a new forum on this topic which can be found using the link below.

TheMindTarvern: https://themindtavern.com/community/index.php

It's pretty much me talking to myself in there so far, so please come along and engage.

Oh, and invite your friends too!

I know you run several forums but have no idea what they are.
How about providing a list of forums and links for anyone interested.

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

@ridders, you make a good point. As it stands, there is only this latest one that I run. I have long been interested in topics around the mind, studying, learning etc. but I never gotten around to creating a forum for it. It is in its very early stages but I will flesh it out with other related topics, such as psychology, maybe philosophy, decision-making etc.

So, in brief, The Mind Tavern is the only other forum I am running.

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

Ok thanks.
I've also joined but under a different username.
As an ex-teacher this broad area is also of interest to me.

Like the site design. Different forum software and host?

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

Someone with your experience would be invaluable on a forum about learning! I appreciate you signing up.

Yes, this new forum uses XenForo while Access World Forums uses vBulletin. vBulletin used to be the best forum software out there but in my view, XenForo is now leader of the pack. It is super-modern, easy to use, better moderation functions and one last thing. I love the way you can - to start a new thread - just start typing in the title of the thread in the Thread Title bar at the top of the forum. Then it expands out to complete your message. Smooth!

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

Hi Jon - if possible via settings somewhere, would you consider making it so users need not be signed in to view attachments? For example, I'm looking at this thread: http://themindtavern.com/community/i...ledge-tree.14/ and wanted to open the image to see what this SuperMemo/KnowledgeTree thing is, but am unable to view it larger unless I sign up.

While I'll probably sign up, it might help to have things a bit more open to non-users to help gain some traction?

@jleach, I will look into that for you.

Edit: I have made that change for you. Attachments now viewable without logging in.

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

@Vassago, it would be great to see you there! Actually, I think I know why it is blocked. Maybe because it is http rather than https. I need to see if I can apply my existing certificate to it.

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

I'm going to buy a SSL certificate for the site and see if that fixes it.

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

Update: The site is now https (SSL certificate added). The site links above have been updated to reflect this.

This may fixed the blocked issue some have from work. However, I have been told some companies have policies where they block certain types of site, unless they get whitelisted. e.g. some don't want their employees going on Facebook etc.

Re: Seeking a favour: Please help me populate my new forum!

Seems I am still blocked at work. The filter says it's an "Uncategorized URL." It must be through some sort of white list. I can access most of the internet, just not any social sites and such.
