    Default Which vegan forum would you use if this forum didn't exist?

    Dear all veganforum-members,
    which vegan forum would you use if this forum didn't exist?

    This info can be useful - both for members looking for a different kind of vegan forum - or in case our forum will close.
    I will not eat anything that walks, swims, flies, runs, skips, hops or crawls.

    I wouldn't use any, as have never found an alternative that I felt really comfortable with.

    I don't know of any others.

    Yeah, I don't really know of any other purely vegan boards. This one is so easy and quick to use. Very user-friendly. I have been on to veganfitness a couple of times. Again, that is extremely user-friendly. But I always come back to this one. Don't know why, specifically So, in all honesty, it would probably be veganfitness.

    I'm with Cobweb on this and probably wouldn't go to another forum. The other vegan forums I've tried were 'vegan' in name only.

    I probably should have also said that this is a really, really friendly, not just user-friendly, forum

    I was using veggieboards but had some problem with my account that prevented me logging on.

    If this place closed I would probably try and get my account re activated there.

    Other than that I don't use any other forums as I rather like it here

    I'd probably use animalrightsdiscussion.com as they seem to have alot of the same categories as this forum does. Not many active members though I've made an account over there aswell, but I never post. I prefer the atmosphere over here

    Other vegan forums? Psh. If this one closed I'd just cry myself to sleep every night.

    I don't think I'd bother joining another forum if this one closed. I've had a look at a few and I don't care for them.

    This the best out there. Don't think there is anyplace that comes close to the level of discussion and friendly atmosphere.

    To echo many others, I wouldn't use any other vegan forum. VF is where it's at.

    "Celebrating The Vegetarian Lifestyle"...

    Volentia sounds more like a vegetarian network?

    Yeah that's the problem, there are also vegetarians on it, hence the name veg*n not vegan. What about Veganaroundtheworld?

    No, Back-Space, I'm not planning to shut it down. We need to get 80 in donations within 9 days - to cover some expenses - and I think we'll reach that goal, since we got 30 GBP 35 in donations since yesterday.

    When I get a job going, I'd be happy to donate aswell. Money's a little tight right now

    What's GBP by the way?

    I only know of one other and I'm put off of posting there as it seems incredibly cliquey.

    I use volentia but it gets on my nerves with people trying to warp the definitions of words to suit their own purposes and (sorry but...) Americans posting as if there was only one country in the world.

    There are no other vegan forums for me...............I am a member of a few others but I don't frequent them much, if at all. I don't mind donating more if it means keeping the forum going. It would be good if we all donated something, even if it's only a few pounds.

    Yes. Perhaps some people will be feeling more solvent after Father Christmas has been and will feel more able to make a donation then

    If it's the one sponsored by a magazine, I think I know it. Tried it a few times, but no one every replied. There seems to be a small group who only reply to each other.

    Has anyone else been having problems accessing the forum? I was trying last night but it didn't want to let me back on. I tried this morning aswell and it said it was down.

    I haven't been having any problems Back-Space. Although, I know the forum is down now and again for various reasons...........it happened a little while ago. Maybe I've just been lucky and logged on when it's up and running again.

    I wouldn't use any other forum - i like this one - and the others I have tried I am not keen on - so it will be this one or none for me. This forum is a really helpful data base but google works well if you are stuck.
