In case you guys haven't seen the "State of the Forum" page, lots of people are leaving here and going to community.scarymommy.com instead. Not sure if they have an adoption/foster care board but wanted to make sure you all knew in case you also post on other boards here.
the gist is that the admin has been intentionally unresponsive and the subsequent response was pretty insulting.
I said this in the state of the board thread, but I think it's easier for parenting to move. They talk about a lot of general topics and can assimilate pretty much anywhere. As a Parenting poster, I have no problem making the move to SM.
But as a poster on some "niche" boards, it's a lot harder. Here on this board, it's already a small community so if we move to SM we'll lose some members (and maybe gain others) but we lose the wealth of knowledge that we've built up. It is daunting thinking about rebuilding that again and in the interim we don't have the same support there as this already functioning board.
So I'll probably post on SM for parenting-type topics and here for the other "niche" boards, at least for a while until I see how things shake out.
