1 account and give everyone the pass?  :-\
1 guy runs it, only approved ppl cud follow. Still unsure what the purpose of the group idea would be for, but twitter wouldn't be good for chatting back n forth

MessageMe would work, I don't mind downloading another app as long its free, it would just go into my communications folder anyways.

I'll start a WIKI soon, going for supper soon, when I come back if one isnt started yet.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

IMO the point will be for local people to connect and share deals, etc that only pertain to a specific area or city and that do not need to be shared in a big aspect, (I do not share a lot of small deals I see lying around bc its only in a local store).

Why not? there are plenty of "local" threads, I think the Lakewood thread works fine for local deals and info.
