Hi everyone. By now, most of us have heard about the F&W bankruptcy. F&W owns WC, so there's some uncertainty about WC's future now. There are some threads with ideas for keeping in touch, just in case WC were to be no more (note that the Mods seem to be thinking that it's possible that WC will be sold, or otherwise kept going). Anyway, as a backup measure, WC user Chris (u/HalifaxCB) has started a reddit group so that we can stay connected.
It's only just begun so there aren't that many people yet, but it's easy to sign up (you'll be asked for an email address, but they do not verify) and pretty easy to use too. Here is the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/WetCanvasTalk
The other option that has frequently come up is to go to Facebook. Personally, I just won't do that after all the stories about hacking and how they sell user data. Reddit doesn't do those sorts of things, and there won't be bandwidth issues either. I hope lots of us will head over to reddit and join in there. I feel so much better knowing that just in case, there will be a way to keep in touch with all the people I've gotten to know over the years here at WC.
To sign up, just go to reddit.com and click on the "Sign Up" button in the upper right corner. There are only a few steps, and it's really fast and easy. FYI, here's the welcome message I received when I created my new account:

Here’s some information to get you started with reddit.
How It All Works
Users post to communities, also known as subreddits.
Other users vote and comment on those posts.
Based on those votes, the best posts rise to the top for all to enjoy.
Users who post or comment earn karma points when their content gets voted up, or upvoted.
As you’re participating, be aware that each subreddit has its own unique personality and rules, usually found in their sidebar. Those are the basics! Once you poke around the site a bit, please feel free to check out a more in-depth explanation about what reddit is and how it works.(https://redditblog.com/2014/07/30/how-reddit-works-2/) Happy redditing!
