We’ve finally launched a brand new forum and classifieds with several new features like neighborhood groups and private messaging. And for the first time in recent memory, it accepts new registrations! Register right here. If you were signed up in the old forum, unfortunately you’ll need to create a new account.
Our sincere apologies it took this long. As one of the most popular neighborhood forums in the country, we became a spam magnet, attracting several hundred sophisticated attempts a day at creating spam accounts. But the new forum is equipped with advanced spam controls, and we’re able to open the door to everyone here.
Beyond an upgrade, one of the best new features is the ability to join or create your own neighborhood group with its own forum — public or private. We already have Ballard parents, Ballard beer, Loyal Heights, Talk Footie (for you soccer fans) and several more. (If you want to create an group, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your username and we’ll get you set up.)
You can also private message people and embed photos, which is especially handy in the classifieds section. Yes, it’s free.
Please sign up (doesn’t require Facebook) and take a look around. We’ve posted more information about the forum here. Again, our apologies for the long delay, and please email us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
