So it's almost 2019 and I think we need to start setting up whatever private March19 group we want to transition to. To make it as democratic as possible, I'm starting this poll so we can decide when we want to move and where we want to move to. The purpose of this private group would to protect any personal information that people want to share with the friends they have made over the last several months from public view. The group will eventually decide what determines that, and feel free to use this thread as a discussion board for that.
Before Babies: Likely sometime in January so we can get moved and settled before any (more) early arrivals. This does not mean that we cannot still keep a fairly active presence on the public March '19 board.
After Babies: March/April. Again, this does not mean we have to abandon the public board completely.
Facebook: I'm unsure how people typically make this transition as I'm not in a FB BMB group, but I'd imagine it would eventually be a closed, secret group. This would expose everyone's information that is made available to the public and would exclude anyone that does not use facebook.
Private Bump Group: For anyone not aware, The Bump has private groups that are essentially private boards without Bump God moderation. We would choose our own moderators and set our own rules and would more or less be left to our own devices to enforce them. Because it is on the bump there is still a level of anonymity by using screen names, but we can transition there pretty seamlessly. Provided that they are working because the Bump app/community/website can be a bit buggy at times. We would be at the mercy of the Bump in that regard.
