I really only see BAEN chat/forums here on the full website. I am on the BAEN Facebook page, but see that as really just a "push" of information - highlighted sales ads, upcoming events, funny memes. I never thought to post anything there as a chat - as it seems so wide-open, versus the forum here where folks come intentionally to exchange ideas and answer posts. |
I also hardly ever look at BAEN forums on my phone - it's always when I'm on my desktop computer. I'm not sure why, as I look at all kinds of other things (Facebook, email, Safari web browsing) using my iPhone.
I'm not sure if it's that the website never worked well on mobile previously, so I never think to look at it that work, or because I'm just a creature of habit. It's actually the same for me with the horse forums on COTH - I only look at those from a desktop screen as well. (on a related note, the new format of the COTH forums is *horrible* - please don't switch to that webhost/forums layout).
It seems like the BAEN forums have been quieter lately, which is a bummer - as this really is the best place for local SF Bay Area connections related to horses. This has been a wonderful community for over a decade now - I hope it can continue!
