I don't think it's dogmatic to use the word vegan.
I know, my point is that people associate the word 'vegan' with dogmatism.

Yes, and people associate 'vegetarian' with the consumption of dairy and eggs. Every word has its associations.

Just a thought, if we are going to get rid of atheism as a primary topic on this forum, we might as well remove the "Religion" title for everyone's profiles. Just saying mates.

Anyway, I feel as though this forum is pretty much managed and controlled by the small community we have here. Its like socialism/anarchism: we run the place ourselves. If more people join and post, and this is just me, but I like being at the top with the rest of you.

The forum should be moved to a new location on Tuesday. I will post with the new location here, so you guys can go to it. This location will be left up for a couple days, and then later redirected.

So, basically: Just come here as usual, and you'll see the forum is locked, and you'll find the link posted here (and a few other places probably), and you can copy and paste and follow it.
If you end up coming later in the week, it will redirect automatically.

So we decided on a name already?
And all the posts here will be on the new address?

All posts here will be at the new location, yes.
No name yet, I'll figure it out when buying the domain (depends on what's available).

OK guys, trying to migrate the forum now. No more posts for a bit.

You will find the new forum at philosophicalvegan.com, but don't register and post yet (wait until everything is moved)
It doesn't have SSL yet, so be careful about where you log in.

Yeah, I really like 'Philosophical Vegan'!

I wonder how this will impact the demographics of new users.
