    other chatter

    Would there be any justification for a thread for general chatter thats not directly hammock related?

    If you become a donating member for a minimal fee you will discover several new forums one of which is off topic conversations. The moderates will moderate out any non hammock topics typically for this reason.

    There are a number of off topic forums for donating members.

    Hello Nobby, The donating membership is where we talk about everything else. We do still have family friendly, no guns God or politics rules.
    If you choose to not donate to help keep the lights on here you could try our sister website https://www.whiteblaze.net/forum/forum.php the same person owns both sites.
    WhiteBlaze is much larger with a focus of all things hiking/backpacking.

    Cheers, I had noticed the donating member groups and will be donating soon.I was thinking more some of the tenuous links between hiking, foraging etc. Although not part and parcel of hammocking they do converge on occasion.

    I love this site, and am happy to make my small yearly fee, donation, gift...
    The generously shared knowledge and insight drive my imagination daily. And that's on the open forums.
    The member forums are, to me, just the fun, sweet icing.

    In the off topic forums that you get with becoming a donating member you get to see what we say about the r non-donating members.

    I just bought a subscription specifically to check on this. Needless to say, I'm astounded.

    It's amazing how many posts on this particular thread have disappeared. I do agree that the benefits of a donating membership is well worth the price of admission.
