HAPPY MOOSE GARDENING FORUM
Today I invite you to join and participate in the new Happy Moose Gardening
Forum. This web-based discussion forum is now the primary portal for
personal interaction between lovers of hostas, daylilies, and irises
collectively. Up until now individual forums existed for each of these three
plant groups individually, and for the people that grow them. Now,
TheGardenSite.com is bringing them all together in a focused forum,
broadening the base for each of these three groups in a single gardening
forum that expresses the shared excitement of growing hostas, daylilies,
The Happy Moose Gardening Forum is sponsored by Happy Moose Web Design.
TheGardenSite.com with over 125 member web sites is providing this forum for
all gardeners and assumes full operational expenses.
There are three major categories on the discussion board. One for hostas,
daylilies, and irises, respectively. Within each of these categories are
more focused forums relating to each category. A fourth category is also
established for general socializing.
The best way to get a feeling of the new Happy Moose Gardening Forum is
simply to visit it at http://happymoose.com.
We recognize the relationship between the commercial and consumer sides of
gardening, and know that they are both major entities of the gardening world
in general. In addition to the open discussion areas for the various plant
genres, there are also categories established for members to post about
their web sites, and for relevant gardening related commercial
announcements. Basically, we offer the general and focused gardening
discussion without the commercial ads, but do have appropriate categories
for the commercial posts that are as easily accessible as a single click of
the mouse. Also, the commercial and web site areas are not restricted to
only associates of TheGardenSite.com, they are for everyone.
I encourage you to become a registered member of the forum. Registered
members definitely will be able to enjoy more of the features that the Happy
Moose Gardening Forum provides such as selecting your design preference
(currently 5 different board layouts), the ability to edit and delete your
messages, the ability to start and participate in polls, being eligible to
win prizes in our free contests and drawings, as well as many other
features. However, non-registered members may still participate in all the
general forums relating to hostas, daylilies, and irises with the ability to
post new messages and to reply to messages (note: non-registered
participants may not post in the commercial announcement areas). Just as I
do not feel you need to be a member of a certain plant society to walk in
and enjoy the garden, I do not feel that anyone needs to be denied the
excitement of gardening in the Happy Moose Garden Forum.
For over 10 years, I have participated in numerous internet forums operated
on many different platforms. The Happy Moose Gardening Forum is structured
with many of the best qualities and features of the different forums. The
new forum will mature in a fashion shaped by its membership. The Happy Moose
Gardening Forum should compliment your participation in internet gardening
forums, and not compete with other forums.
Finally, I also invite plant society groups and clubs to take advantage of
our "User Group" feature. This will allow for the formation of private
forums for groups such as individual society Regions to have their own
discussion forum, moderated by Regional representatives The User Group
Forums can only be accessed and seen by the members of each User Group. This
can also be set-up for individual clubs to have their own private forums.
There are no expenses to clubs, regions, or other groups for enjoying this
service. Happy Moose Web Design will maintain the hardware, software, and
technical management of the User Groups for you, at no expense to you.
Come share the celebration as the Happy Moose marks our 10-year anniversary
on the internet with the new Happy Moose Gardening Forum.
