Re: RDS February 2014 BotM (The Pagan Porch)


Many thanks to Saijen for answering our Board of the Month Questionnaire!

 ~~1. What made you decide to start a board?~~

*1) We originally had a board on another site but the site kept crashing. We started this one as a back-up. It ended up being our only board.

~~2. What made you choose Runboard?~~

*2) We chose Runboards since one of our members had her own message board here,

~~3. What's your target audience?~~

*3) Our target audience is Pagan, or like minded people, and homesteaders. We accept any who can be adult about differing points of view, but our primary group is Pagan Homesteaders and like minded.

~~4. How did you get people to join? How did you advertise your board?~~

*4) Most of our members came from the other message board. We pretty much just get new members from people doing online searches for boards such as ours.

~~5. What's the central theme of your board?~~

*5) The central theme is Paganism, in any form as long as it's not negative, and homesteading.

~~6. What are the board rules and how important are they?~~

*6) The main board rule is that there is no [sign in to see URL] if it starts, we do our best to stop it immediately. If one party refuses, we do ban. We insist on tolerance, regardless if your Pagan or anything else, we strive very hard to ensure our board is a place all can feel welcome without dissent.

~~7. How important is the look and feel of the board? Or, is content and member involvement more important?~~

*7) Content is important, as this is not just a board to 'yak' with each [sign in to see URL] is a teaching board, where others can learn about Paganism, and/or homesteading type things.

~~8. How do you keep interest up?~~

*8) We try to introduce new topics on a regular basis. We don't always succeed, as many of us do have hectic schedules at times.

~~9. What's the best feature of your board?~~

*9) To me, personally, the best feature of our board is our members!! We have some very knowledgeable people on the 'Porch', which makes the topics very interesting, and fun to learn new things.

~~10. What are your plans for the future, boardwise?~~


*10) Eventually, we'd like to reintroduce some topics that we have taken out, due to lack of time to keep them maintained. Things to help some learn more about various issues within Paganism, and some herbal/plant information to help with medicinal needs, and such.

~~11. What would be your advice to a new Board owner? ~~

*11) The best advice I could give is to ASK QUESTIONS!!! Ask questions of [sign in to see URL] out what THEY would like to see on your board, then try to accommodate if appropriate to your board and rules.
Don't have so much that you overwhelm members. Start out with the basics, then add if you need/want to.

Sincerely,
Saijen.

Re: RDS February 2014 BotM (The Pagan Porch)


Thanks so much for this opportunity!! And thank you to all who voted for our board. It's appreciated more than you know!!!

I love our [sign in to see URL]'s not so large that our members get lost within the depths. It's like a close, extended family, that we enjoy adding to! We love for new people to come and [sign in to see URL] a feel for our unique corner of the internet, and, hopefully stick around.

There is so much information in the heads of our members, that we'd blow the place up if we put it all on the [sign in to see URL]. I love that each person has a very unique ability they share. One may have more knowledge with homesteading type things, one may have more in herbals, one may have more in [sign in to see URL] person brings a gift to the board, and no two are the same. That is what makes The Pagan Porch such a wonderful place to be. Our members!!!

We'd love for any and all to drop [sign in to see URL] if this is a place you'd like to hang out, and join us for some fun topics, some learning [sign in to see URL], who [sign in to see URL] may have some really good information that would fit in that we could all benefit from!

Thank you again, RB for giving us the opportunity to shine!!!!

Re: RDS February 2014 BotM (The Pagan Porch)


I truly LOVE the Pagan Porch. It's my home away from home.
The people there are honest, caring, loving and very intelligent. They know what they are talking about, be it homesteading or Pagan related information.
They took me in, and I've learned so much about so many things that I wanted to know.
They never laugh at me for any dumb questions I might ask, but they will laugh with me when life just makes me giggle!
They have given me their shoulders and open arms when I desperately need them and they have given me a home...♥
