I would hope that, rather than go shopping for another forum, that those who made Philforum unique and important philosophically, would stay here and help work---together--- through whatever problems there might be.
In two ways, this forum is a work in progress. From a system point of view, there are improvements and enhancements that are "under construction;" from the point of view of some special needs for philosophical discussions, there may also be needs to be identified. Perhaps because I am, like many Pf friends, "feeling my way" through the differences; I will be the first to acknowledge that some activities that were simply normal and habitual seen awkward to me now on my first day here.
I intend to continue, as I did at Philforum, to use my unique blend of forum management experience, philosophical knowledge, and IT training to join in Robert's efforts to make A2K the paramount forum for philosophical discussion.
