Yes, the http://csa.astorians.net would be an entirely different website (see http://astorians.net/hurricane for an example of how that works)

As for the private stuff I agree it has plusses and minuses. We could always just have the CSA threads like we do now, and then have a separate email mailing list to send out CSA announcements and stuff like that.

There are lots of possibilities as to how it could be set up. For example we could make it so people could read but not post (if they are not a member) or so they could post but not read, or both read and post, etc etc. Or open to all. Or not create separate chat board and just use the main astorians board (kinda like we are doing now, just a CSA thread that people could read and post on.)

Throwing some ideas in.

I think it should be public.  It's a public community thing, it should be open for all.

There might, however, be a need for an email list that's just CORE members/volunteers -- to do what little administrative business there will be that shouldn't be public.  If there is any?

For what it's worth, I agree.

I agree on the public-ness.

@ Zeno.  tsk tsk for saying, "for what it's worth".  Your opinion is VERY important.  If we didn't get your opinon, how would we make decisions?  (We're like the Quakers.)  :)

Merm, that would be awesome!  I like it!

As for public/private issues - other forums I'm on have separate administrative sections that are not visible to the general public.  Perhaps there could be a small area of it reserved for administrative stuff that really should remain private.  This would still give core group members an easy method of communication.

Hmm. Samantha just pointed out that the other CSA here in Queens is named "Astoria CSA"

Is Astorians CSA a little too close in name? Maybe we should call it Ditmars CSA or something if we end up having it on Ditmars.

We can still host it on astorians.net if you guys want, but maybe Astorians CSA isn't original enough  :(

Zeno suggested some ideas that I liked awhile ago.

Quote from: zeno
How about Earth CSA? (that' greater than Astoria or Greater Astoria :-) )

Ceres (Roman goddess of Agriculture)
Demeter (Greek goddess of Agriculture)
Earth
Friends of Earth
Gaia
Vegetable Power


I like some of these simply because they aren't location specific.  (Although I like the way Demeter on Ditmars sounds.)  However, some of these need to be worked in to more "name-sounding" names.

Aren't I remarkably articulate?

As someone outside this process, I like Demeter.  The whole Greek theme for what is a community with a strong Greek populace seems fitting.

So saith Telesphoros.
