Anyone still using this site?

First, sorry for all the spam. Seems no matter what I do, someone finds a way around the Captcha and starts blasting away. Most of the latest spam came from mid April onward including one userid that posted 1000+ times. I deleted the spam. I was careful not to delete legit posts.

The next step on the spam war: I've switched registration to use some Elan specific questions to join. We'll see how that goes.

Ok, now for the BIG question: Is anyone still reading/posting to this site? With the advent of social media sites like Facebook, I'm wondering how usefull a site like this is? If there is real interest, I'll keep working on it. If not ... well, we'll see ...

Honetly, I don't really keep up on this site like I should. I spend most of my time communication with Elan people on Facebook.

But a site like this does have some benefits. It's moderated. It is, for the most part, quiet ... sort of like that corner table in the back of the pub where you can feel safe talking.

Just my thoughts.

Ok, speak up people!

Regards,

Rich W.

I recently discover this site by accident and joined. I also joined a site on Facebook. Its called the Elan Survivors Group. Is it the same one your talking about? If not,can you let me know what others there are? I would really like to find old friends I knew back then. So many memories have come back that I want to share. Please let me know if you can.

Thank You
Walter

Walter,

There are 3 Facebook sites that I know of:

https://www.facebook.com/groups/ElanSchool/

https://www.facebook.com/groups/134849609921732/

https://www.facebook.com/groups/elanreunion/

The last on is pretty cool. We've been doing reunions for the past 3 years. This year it will be in Maine.

I haven't heard of the Elan Survivors group. Can you post a link?

Thanks,

rjwiii
