Woah… please let us not degrade into the chaotic mess that is Facebook groups. The functionality is barely better than email with anything of interest flying out of view and essentially unsearchable in the sea of all things Facebook. The best EAB type groups do NOT use Facebook, but instead use dedicated forum software.
The good news is that we have multiple Quickie Builder Association (QBA) websites (www.quickheads.com and www.quickiebuilders.org) along with tandem-wing/Rutan builders/flyers/enthusiasts at our sister site www.canardzone.com (a state-of-the-art community platform). Dan Yager, myself, and many others (Sam, Jay, QTalk authors, many more) have put in a LOT of time and money to keep these sites running and it would be a shame to lose these resources due to lack of interest.
This is the roadmap I have come up with for the QBA and Canard Zone sites, and I welcome any and all feedback and ideas:
The challenge is that there are two different platforms underneath each site and so I would appreciate any offers of help towards making this happen (even if only participation on those sites).
