I stuck the link in my sig line on those other forums.  I'll expect a ban soon.

I can tell you how to promote a FB group, but not so much a website.  Sorry. :(

Sure, worst that can happen is a ban, yes?

I dont have an active account there though, so there easy for me to say. If anybody still does and would like to advise people we are here I would appreciate it.

Word of mouth has always been the start in my experience. I'm posting on twitter because I'm that person.

Well, I think you're underestimating the power of the grapevine. If a few will post this on facebook, it will get around. I'm friends with about 60-75ish (I can't seem to find where to find the correct number) old members and I'm not a member of the facebook page. Just people I've been friends with since the mass banning. That's how I found out about all this bru haha. I'm sure if it were posted in that group, as well as just on facebook that would help. Also, there are a couple of reddit subs, though the ones I've found are pretty empty, maybe a post there too?

Can those of us who aren't banned from Etiquette Hell maybe send out some PMs to members active in the last six months or something like that? Directly notify EH users that there's another option available to them then the one Ehelldame linked.

That’s not a bad idea. There’s pretty good evidence that PMs on that forum are not totally private, though, so anyone who does is definitely risking a banning. If anybody still cares.

What will it matter? I mean, the worst she can do is ban someone from a dying forum. I certainly wouldn't send personal info with it though.

Someone posted the link on the GOMI forum. That should bring some traffic.

FWIW, I requested and received PMs with links to all 3 "disfavored" groups. I haven't been banned, and the PMs are still there.

I think some of the senders were subsequently banned, but there were also things on the public side that might have triggered that.
