I want to so the people who haven't been messaged about this will know about this, but I don't know what the mods of @U2 would think of that. Advice?

Personally I think it might be received badly if we advertise this place openly in the @u2 forum, so I am approaching good and regular users by PM to invite them here.  We want the mods to relaunch that @u2 forum after a short break at most, so let's try and be sensitive to their feelings as best we can.  PM-ing takes time but we can reach the best posters that way.

What if I present it as a temporary alternative?

I agree with this. If you notice a poster whose posts you like, send them a PM and invite them over here. You could even create a small script like:

"Hey, I've been a member here for a while and was sad to hear about the forum closing. A good number of members are joining a new forum called forum.talku2.com and I'd love it if you would consider joining us over there."

And just PM that to whoever you want to invite, even if it's someone you haven't PM'd before but maybe have otherwise interacted with on the forums.

I don't want to step on any toes over there since the old place has been running a great forum for many years, but I do want the users who want to keep active to feel welcome here.

Thanks! Will copy and paste this!

My view on this is we absolutely should show respect to the people who run and have run atu2 - asking those people if they would allow 'promotion' of here (for want of a better phrase) is the right thing to do IMO.

We of course would love as many people as possible to feel like they want to join and post here - it is just the right thing to do to be respectful of atu2 and ask the question.

If it is deemed ok to point people to here on there then great if they decide it isn't then we should respect that.

Good idea... I think given news of this is bound to spread the best approach would be to ask the current mods if they mind us promoting the new place on the @u2 forum.  Until we get a response I suggest no-one mentions it on @u2 except in PM to their friends.

And who are all the current mods?

Too late...someone has already posted it on the other forum.

There is a list of them on the other site - but don't worry I'll email them about this.  I've also invited at least a dozen people in here.  PM your friends and tell them to join too.

In the meantime I ask whoever posted in @u2 about this to please delete that thread until we get an okay from the mods there.
