About the A Village Commons Forum

"I feel a great disturbance in the Force. It is as if millions of voices cried out, and then - suddenly - were stilled ..."

When Beyond The Sidewalks went to a private, members-only club, many former participants were left behind.

I hope that this forum will make some small steps towards replacing the sense of community that used to exist on the old, public BTS.

The old BTS was desribed as a "liberal, touchy-feely, eco-freak, watermelon, whacko" type of community. Just my kinda place!

If its your kinda place too, remember the following simple rules:

No porn.
No proselytizing, either political or religious.
Remember, the commons only benefits the community as a whole if we all take care of it, and share. Play nice.
