I was sad to learn today that my suspicions as of yesterday have been confirmed. The O-Cha green tea forum has had its plug pulled. This prompted quite a bit of thinking, and some worrying, as while it was my secondary tea forum compared to Tea Chat. Tea Chat is also owned by a company, and anyone that has been to Tea Chat knows it is not a big driver of sales for Adagio, at least not as much as a percentage of users, as it appeared The Green Tea Forum was for O-Cha.
This launched me into action, not really knowing of a great all around tea forum with a friendly atmosphere outside of Tea Chat that everyone could run to should Tea Chat ever meet the same end as the Green Tea Forum ( simply having the plug pulled without any real sign of notification).
As such I am launching the Tea Drinkers Forum, and I encourage all of my readers to join.
I am asking everyone to please pardon the dust, it seems to be in a stable state currently, but I may continue to tweek a few things, and work on the appearance these next few days.... This should have little to no effect on the actual forum functionability.
