Front Page Forum has arrived in Wilmington!
Tuesday, September 03, 2013 at 10:00 AM
Front Page Forum is a free community-building service that allows neighbors to connect with one another. It is moderated and members are clearly identified as they share postings about all sorts of topics. These forums help neighbors find lost pets, welcome newcomers, inform each other of local events, and engage in healthy debates about the important issues in their community. In times of need, such as during and following natural disasters, a Front Porch Forum becomes even more powerful. And that is the key to why VCRD and the Vermont Digital Project have invested in Front Porch Forum.
This neighborhood forum is open to people who have a valid Wilmington address. Since 2006 FPF has been hosting regional networks of online neighborhood forums where clearly identified nearby neighbors share postings about all sorts of topics.
FPF is a Vermont-based online service with nearly 60,000 households participating across half of the state. Now, thanks to the Vermont Council on Rural Development, FPF has expanded and is available statewide to every Vermont town and neighborhood. After significant investment by the Vermont Digital Economy Project and software development by FPF, there is now a forum available for every Vermont town!
To sign up: Visit: http://frontporchforum.com and enter your valid Wilmington address.
More information is posted below.
Also, there is a blog at Front Porch Forum: http://blog.frontporchforum.com/ In the upper right that there is an FAQ link, as well other information and a way to ask questions directly to Front Porch Forum.
