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!

Hi Peeps,

My tuppence...

I do like the Twitter feed and official Vindo-blog, but they don't really allow for volunteer interaction. I understand the Trust's keen-ness to keep control over what info runs free into the outside world (and I understand that there are very good reasons for this reticence) but people do like to chat. I know that WeDig isn't seeing so much traffic now, but perhaps thatís more a reflection of the medium than anything else. It has outlasted a number of internet revolutions, so it hasn't done too bad, but to everything, turn, turn, turn...

I do use FB and it would obviously be very easy to just set up an informal group in there. If that were to go ahead, it could be a limited group, requiring approval to join, but the limits would depend on how much involvement any admins want. More limits mean more intervention is required by admins. It could be fairly light touch though, and just post a sticky with guidelines for posting.

On the flip side, not everyone uses, or wants to use FB, or any other social media. I can't solve that one, unless we all write letters to one another :P
