Can we start an RPoL Facebook group?
As the thread title asks?  Would this be permissible?   (I know we could just start a fansite without jase's go ahead, I'm just checking for go ahead first)


[EDIT]
The Facebook Unofficial Fansite is here:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/2478037965758317/

In reply to evileeyore (msg # 1):

Yes.  As long as you make it clear that it isn't an official part of this site.

one of  my players   started  a group, just for  my best game here..came in handy  for the 404 thing  as  we  could update each other..also?..a few player s who left for RL..contacted me there, to come back to the game..so?.. GMs  could make   groups for thier own  games.

My players use a Discord server for basically that purpose. We actually all talk on the regular, so it has turned into a community instead of just an update spot but yeah.  An RPOL Discord would probably burn less when you pee than a Facebook group.

Less deplorable will be sufficient.  Facebook has its pitfalls... but if we start a fansite there and keep the posting down to "Hey is it up?" and "Is there anyone from RPoL up for a meet-up?" then we should be able to avoid the worst that Facebook can be.

I like the discord idea better. Discord is about as close as I'll ever get to social media.

Facebook is also one of the shoddiest pile-of-garbage UIs I've seen out there on the Internet. It's awful. Blech. It's good for visibility, but if we're just advertising internally in the RPOL community anyhow, it doesn't matter and there are plenty of options which we could advertise which are dramatically superior.

Well, I don't Discord, but I ain't adverse to seeing one set up.  I might even join (I do have a discord account, it just runs pathetically slowly on my potatoe).


So I started a Facebook Group in hell if anyone wants to follow it and post uselessly next time RpoL goes down...  in say 10 more years when the log files overload the disk again.
