Expanding the forums

Post by Landsend on Fri Apr 20, 2018 7:47 am

The main purpose of these forums is of course to bring together those of us who recall VN War in context of a previous life. I’m trying to invite more folks over here, but I understand that this is a very narrow group of people and this is going to be a largely dormant community. Having members post their memories, and having those resources for research will make this space an archive to assist future members. Which is exactly why I encourage people to post their memories and research process as accurately and detailed as possible.

I also realise that people who recall other wars or conflicts may find these forums useful so branching out in that direction is a possibility.

If anyone has any other ideas or suggestions in this regard let me know.

I'm not too familiar with how Reddit works, any thoughts on how it could be utilised?

You can make your own subreddit where people talk about their past lives in Wars. It would be a good idea to at least include modern wars instead of only focusing on Vietnam to get a wider audience. I could help you create a subreddit on there (forum). We can be moderators there.

Soldier it's not a bad idea. Privacy is a concern for me, and I like to keep this community friendly and open -- it might be a way to attract traffic. I have concerns about this forum platform -- if we managed to get a more active discussion I would consider moving the forums to a more secure platform. Secure means paid for though, so it's a consideration I'll have to take into account.

Of course I encourage a discussion of all wars, and have been thinking of opening up a section for non-military pl experiences too.

People who died back in Iraq and Afghanistan are probably being born around this time. It’ll take some time until we find more people with memories from those wars.

There are also various conflicts spread across the world. My daughter is two has markers for a PL in a war (since she was about 12 months). When we let off fireworks here last November when she was 18 mos old, she was hysterical, ran in the house and grabbed my husbands bicycle helmet for 'protection'. She also liked to wear a metal sieve we had as a play helmet up until recently. Yet I'm not pushing her... she may never need to remember. I hope she doesn't honestly. But there may be parents out there who have kids who also exhibit these types of behaviours, and more severe. They also would seek information on how to deal with what their children are presenting.
