From Aug 2006 - Nov 2013 WeDig provided a live forum for diggers & fans of Vindolanda. It has now been mothballed and will be maintained as a live archive.

Here you will find preserved 7 years of conversation, photos, & knowledge about a site many people love. Vindolanda gets under the skin. (Figuratively and literally as a volunteer excavator!) It's a place you remember, filled with people you remember!

Thanks for 7 great years!

The difference though, is that TDP actively encourages its volunteers to take ownership of outreach activities,whereas the Vindolanda Trust doesn't.

Personal blogs are entirely up to individuals, but a group blog, like the Fawkes Hall of Thames blog and the piece in the Greenwich Visitor, actually represent TDP activities. TDP is fine about that (delighted actually), would VT be?

^^ what she said, plus it is also linked in to a number of people's Facebook and Twitter feeds, so people who aren't on either of those can get to see at least some of the FB/Twitter activity.

Hi Justine (and Claire *waves back*)

the FROG forum is a Ning network. As with any forum, it's only works if people use it, and the FROG network has taken some time to get going. It is going now though and I like it. It's very easy to add documents and photos, blogs, groups, discussions, all that.

There are some clunky things about it, like the fact that if anyone starts a discussion, it has to be approved by an Admin. I don't know if it's possible to just set it up so that no approval is needed, but in any case, it does need Admins, so it'll depend on whether people have the time and capacity to do that.

Something to think about.
