I don't think facebook groups provide the same function but I don't know if forums are live anymore or not in g...

Re: Being anti-social in Medieval England.

Yes, we have a view of it being all a bit free-wheeling and look after number 1, where as the truth is a long way from that.

The tithing thing is very interesting - do you know when that died out?

Re: No Comments, very disappointing.

With a 1,000 views on each post they are being widely read.

It is not uncommon for people not to comment on posts like these. Don't know why it is just a thing. But the view count is very good and says the posts are worthwhile.

Re: Advertising events

Good call.

As well as advertising here you should always have a trawl round local events listings sites too.

We sort of speak to the re-enactors audience here, which are usually more happy to travel good distances as well.

Re: No Active Links On Email Notices.

OK, so the email defintely does have the links in it.

What email client do you read your email in?

If you click on the links even if they do not show up as links, do they work anyway?
