I reckon the image should just be the Ye Olde Inn icon; as most people look at it on their phones it's neat and uncluttered

Ah yes, the inevitable move to the private internet and the beginning of the end.

You go now where I cannot follow and so my march to the Grey Havens and The West beyond begins.

It is ok to have the FB page, just try to use it as a way to attire new questers linking part of the content; if they wish to follow details they can join the INN too.
Hope posts are not going to be split here and there and we have to read both sites to avoid missing some content.
I know at lot of HQ groups on Facebook, at least 3 of them are Italians, 1 is German, a couple are in English.
I folow all of them, passively. The good things is that new contents is found in my homepage when I log in so I don't miss any of them. So I don't see any problems in creating a INN Group that is parallel to the other ones.

My dear Whitebeard,
So far I posted some miniatures there, everyone presented his HQ collection, and apart from that all postings contained links going here.

I don't think the days of the Inn are over. Especially, all stuff older than a week is not findable in FB, whereas here it stays available. That's a huge plus for this place here.

I view more facebook as a showcase of what you're going to find here (I mean cool people :) ).
Everything "content" related should remain here of course but there's nothing wrong with advertising the inn with modern medias.

We are hoping that it won't turn out that way, I have urged people to share what they have done here at the Inn so we can avoid that issue.

I fully understand, hoping to get more active people here.

Yes, agreed. I posted something about the Christmas exchange we had last year, in the hopes of getting more active community. A lot of people don't even know we do something like that. I truly believe this and the other forum's are hubs, and Facebook is just a stepping stone.

We are the biggest group on Facebook for heroquest at the moment.

Not all members are active which is upsetting but the fact in the a year we hit almost 4,000 members is quite an accomplishment.

Any member's will to help monitor the group let Andreas or myself know.

Well done guys :D Social media is a tricky thing (I can never seem to get the hang of it) And being the biggest group for HQ on facebook is certainly an achievement!

Kinda wish we could bring some of those folks back here to the Inn proper.
