My personal feelings on Free Range is that they need to welcome in a few admins/moderators. Especially since I think they are only ran by 2. But, we want someone to suggest as well to move on to. And, of course, we can't suggest TN as they are just terrible.

Considering on what those 2 talked on, they should welcome conversations on other topics. Not just on nudism.

Just recently joined over there and the trouble I'm having is that there is only conversation on naturism and literally nothing else.  They could do with discussion on other topics.

Not only that is it’s mostly a few less than five people talking about their personal area and naturist opportunities. I would say it needs more active people but I think there’s a lot going on in pm too, again likely the same few who post on the board

I guess I expected to be on borrowed time when I joined but then I saw people who were up to 50 still here and felt a sense of relief that up until now members who turned 40 were able to stay if they were valued contributors.

I have joined free range pretty much soon after here where I first heard of it but it’s not active, inspiring or varied in discussion as is here, like. Got politely told to keep topic to purely naturism when I mentioned something about railways or something. I think another admin once commented he joined and left but I may be wrong.

I’ve also been a member of true nudists for about 20 years, in a fakebook group with rl friends and moderate a mewe group with them too. None have been as interesting and engaging as IYNO. Joined oh naturist yesterday to see what it’s like… not impressed so far. I’m running out of options.

But the forum was intended for 14-40 and I knew that from the start. In the end it’s up to the owners/ admins what the rules are. We’ve got a good bunch in here and I hope you’ll all join free range and make it as fun as here with the 18-40 year olds managing accounts on both.

I did message Karla there asking her if she might be willing to make a post on there that explains that all topics are welcomed, just as long as it falls in line with their rules. I hope this helps for that anyways, but I can't make any promises since obviously we don't have any sway there.

Well I’ve got another 4 years before I have to start rapping up this account so there’s time yet, we’ll see how it progresses over there. Worst comes to the worst I delete both but that’s a decision to make later

The Free Range Naturism forum is nowhere near as varied or interesting as this one.  Needs a bit of work.

It’s only a couple of regular posters too and limited to their local areas. Doesn’t leave opportunities for input from others. Maybe it could liven up with more talking members.

I hope improvements can be made to the FRN forum.  Because right now if you asked me if I thought it was a companion forum to this one, I would highly disagree.

And hopefully before you turn 40

Maybe a link between the two would be valuable, where posts on the "linked" topics would be mirrored to mirrored to each other. Perhaps it could be its own subboard?

I signed up for FRN. We'll see how it goes!

I’m not sure how that would work. If it meant that the over 40s of FRN were able to see posts on IYNO then it would be a certain no no

It would only mirror that specific topic/subboard. Hence, those who wished to communicated across boards would be allowed to do so, specifically through that specific subboard. I am not suggesting that it be visible directly.

And if FRN can't make the necessary changes, then my hope would be that another forum crops up that is a true older sibling (in a manner of speaking) to this forum.  Until then, I'll continue here.

Well, it had to happen.

It was Danee herself who asked me to join the IYNO forum.  She was a wonderful person who I met on another naturist discussion board and she was impressed enough with my contributions to invited me to join up here.  She thought I would bring some fresh, new ideas for topics and to add a level of maturity to some of the discussions. I pointed out that the IYNO already categorised me as being “too old” to join but she said that the mods have the discretion to allow older members to join under certain circumstances.  So I went ahead and signed up.

I was a little dubious at first, but once I have joined I was overwhelmed with the positivity, excitement, diversity and energy that I found on this forum. Everyone here was warm, welcoming, nonjudgemental and eager to contribute. This is exactly what a naturist forum should be like.

That was four years ago, and since then I have tried to contribute new topics  which I hoped others would find stimulating and interesting. I tried to vary the topic subjects but always kept the focus on naturism in some form or another. I’m pleased to say that according to the forum’s own statistics, my topics have received over 1 million views.  In fact, three of top 10  “Most Viewed“ topics on the forum were started by me.

I understand the reason for all this, of course. The mods need to focus on the purpose of the group. And if that includes the purging of older members, then that's what must happen.  But I can’t help thinking that this dogma of excluding ALL existing members over an arbitrary age is depriving the forum of some of its most productive contributors.

I joined Free Range Naturism, the “no age-limit version“ of IYNO, but in all honesty it’s just a barren wasteland compared to this place. It only has a fraction of the number of members that are on here.

It's with a heavy heart that I am forced to leave the IYNO.  I feel like the family dog that’s being taken out into the field at the back of the house and shot in the head because it's too old to be of any further use to the family that it loved.   

I wish you all well.  I've made many friends on here and even chatted with them on other forums.  If anyone wants to contact me once I'm gone, I've set up a dedicated email (brendarella@tanglecat.com), where you can still reach me.

So, as the IYNO turns off the life support system for its older members, they will slowly lose permissions one by one, such as the ability to participate in any part of the forum, or to create a topic or comment on one, or send or receive messages or images, and eventually, they see the IYNO as untouchable. 

Just remember that one day, this will become your fate, too.

Regarding @Brendarella what she says is absolutely right and as for FRN I am becoming more furious with that site and their hand full of old bangers who have their own thing going on in there and no other participants @iHateClothes made an intro post and I can’t say I’m surprised to see that the topic was hijacked by two members talking nonsense and here’s part of the response I got when I mentioned it

Fishand chips, It IS definitely a hijacking!
I'd like to see Ihateclothes start a thread discussing his dreams of one day starting a nude something, or other.  You know, how to go  about doing that, the goals, business model, or other motivation and sustaining quality. We've never discussed much of that.

As for the topic currently at hand. I'll stick to my like-clockwork, morning refuse dump that my mostly raw pescetarian diet gives me.



Edit: I originally began this post under the impression that Breda had been deleted, it turns out not the case but I thought it had because for some reason I was been unable to send a pm her from her profile
