TravBuddy to Travellerspoint (A new home) - Who's there, who's going?

A little over a year ago I posted a forum topic entitled "Any TravBuddies interested in joining Travellerspoint (TP)?" See previous thread: Any TravBuddies interested in joining Travellerspoint (TP)?

Not much response at the time, but opening a new topic on it now that TravBuddy is closing. For starters:

I have an account on Travellerspoint (TP), and am spocklogic on TP, same as on TravBuddy.
https://www.travellerspoint.com/users/spocklogic/

A referral link can be use to sign up and automatically connect as friends, similar to the way the TravBuddy referral link works I guess.  My referral link if anyone wishes to sign up that way is:
http://www.travellerspoint.com/signup.cfm?refid=879625

Basic info: Travellerspoint is mainly a blogging site, but seems to have future plans to include reviews. The owner/admins seem quite active and open to new ideas for improving the site. It has a very nice mapping feature to document trips, and I did one of those a while ago to test it out. The forums are active, but there is a lack of social outlets on TP, profile-to-profile wise like it was on VT and TB. Maybe it is something they could add if there is a desire from the community.

Anyway, TP is worth checking out as a place to go after TravBuddy and see what the future brings. Iā€™d like to use this forum in the time remaining to recruit members on TB over to TP. I will collect a list here with all members who are already on or migrating to TP.

I can add to the list as we go along, and don't have to add me as a friend on TP to be listed here, but I welcome all TravBuddy members at TP (invite me there).

If you are already there on TP, give your TP username here if wishing to be listed. We will take the final list with us over to TP when TravBuddy closes.

Otherwise this thread can also serve as a general discussion about TP in the time remaining before TravBuddy closes.

Re: TravBuddy to Travellerspoint (A new home) - Who's there, who's going?

I have set up a profile there.

Peter, one of the administrators, has indicated possibility of transferring content from Travbuddy to Travellerspoint, which could be useful:

Gotcha, Mike, I made the change. Better not to have the exTB part - start fresh!

Re: TravBuddy to Travellerspoint (A new home) - Who's there, who's going?

Like Katherin I'm already there and on Brian's list above, but just in case: https://www.travellerspoint.com/users/ToonSarah/

As I posted there in the thread about transferring content, I did that with my VT material. So far only my photos are visible - the reviews are there but hidden from public view until Peter (who runs the site) has created a 'reviews' area. I've seen a few prototypes (I offered to test and comment) and I can see he's getting there, but it's linked to a major development of the whole website so may take a while longer. I'm not sure what will happen with TB content, because here we have blogs which would fit with the current TP format, but also reviews, which don't. Regardless of those caveats, it's definitely worth doing if you have lots of unique and/or unsaved content here. A warning to those who haven't done this before though - you will still have to commit to spending time tidying it up, tagging and mapping photos etc. It's quite a task, but very worthwhile if you want to preserve material you devoted hours to creating, as I did on VT.

Peter has generally been very responsive to suggestions for site improvements made by the incoming VT crowd and I'm sure he will with TB members' ideas too, but some things we've proposed, like meetings, will have to wait till after the reviews etc changes he's working on at present. Once we have both reviews and meeting I believe TP will be a great community - it's already a pretty good one :-)

Re: TravBuddy to Travellerspoint (A new home) - Who's there, who's going?

Well this is a welcome development - they started becoming friendlier after the notice that TravBuddy was shutdown. I've been there since May 2014 (my username is NT01 as somebody else apparently has "nolan" registered) but have added more friends in the last 3 days than in the last 3, almost 4 years? And why? All because they are TravBuddies!

I anticipate that the more TravBuddies we have there, we will see a bigger sense of community, but at this stage, it is too early to tell.

Regards to all

Indeed, no recent responses even on the thread you first wrote about Travellerspoint, hence it got closed after 90 days of inactivity.

After being there for almost 4 years, I can see where both their site and TravBuddy have fallen short ... it's in terms of communications, community and sustaining the momentum. When that doesn't happen as often, expect the site to go the way of the dinosaurs in a few years.

TravBuddy still has the best community and that is something I cannot say even of FaceBook considering a lot of information is already out there.

I think you must have been unfortunate, as I've found Peter and others on that site very welcoming and friendly, having joined just over a year ago after the demise of VT (I joined TB shortly afterwards, as VT friends were split across both sites). Peter has made several modifications to the website to accommodate suggestions from incoming VT members (e.g. notifications re friends' activity) and is doing a major rewrite so we'll be able to post reviews as well as blogs. One of the admins meanwhile gave me loads of guidance when I wanted to customise the template for my blog, even to writing the script I needed and patiently answering lots of questions. Another wrote a detailed guide for us on using the website. The forums are getting livelier with the VTers who joined and now with all the TB influx too we can continue to grow that area. One thing that is, imho, better than here is that you can opt to have email alerts for forum replies so people are prompted to keep the conversation going. The main thing they lack, which we have here and had on VT, is the member meetings function. For now I think TB members will have to rely on Facebook for that, as VTers have done (with some of us acting as go-betweens with members not wanting to join FB), but I know meet-ups are on Peter's longlist of future developments :-)

Added all the recent TP links for TB members posting here, as well as some others who added me as friend on TP.

Someone asked about going to NYC on Travelers Point. I told them to get the City pass I saves money and my experience with it. They removed the post. Why would I want to be with those jerks.

Were you quite new to the site? Did you include a link? They have some logarithms in place which block external links by new-ish members. It's great at reducing spam but it does mean that genuine members can get caught up in it when new - it happened to me. But it should have been blocked pending review by a moderator, not removed altogether. I suggest you post a query in the System Talk forum there to question what happened. I promise you, they aren't jerks, just careful, and that is on balance a good thing :-)

I've joined Travellerspoint and see that many TravBuddy members are there. https://www.travellerspoint.com/users/AndyLADC/
