August 3, 2020! ......This March, after a year's input, I felt we had created an acceptable working site. Stlll, with most users alot more savvy these days! ("You only get one chance!" ) I felt the need to have its structure and coding verified, before starting to bring communities on board. Additionally I am asking several trusted friends to give me an overal opinion of its workings.
SO? As it sits at the moment, I continue to look for a 'trustworthy/ talented/ up-front Coding Type who will assess the structure / safety/ and coding quality of the site (and maybe even join to own part of: 'Our Cascadia Online Inc.' ) - before I feel sufficiently comfortable to reach out to bring in communities again
( Ihave decided to leave below posting - as is - for now.)
Complexities installing a properly functioning Online Merchant Card Processor has guided us to launch our custom-built GoCascadia.com initially in British Columbia, with the simple Ad purchase allowances of: Interac e-transfer.
I will imminently begin contacting the various BC domiciled Business Owners, some of whom may remember being present on our old site. I will encourage each to Officially Register on the new gocascadia.com site! By being Registered, Members will have full access and control of their Community site's amenities. These include Adding Calendar Dates, sending internal Site Messages to other Members, participation in favorite Forums, seeing what's For Sale in the local Buy, Sell & Trade, or upload either their own FREE, or paid Ads.
After contacting a number of Communities on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, I will begin reaching out to additional Communities and Neighbourhoods throughout the BC Cascadia area. Very likely at that stage, a number of Members will have begun sharing their site-experience with me. Once proven to work in our Province of BC, we will expand our Cascadian venture and reach out to our Cascadian Americans in the States of Washington, Oregon and Idaho. This in turn will lead us to seek a suitable Online Merchant Card Processor to aid our Cascadian Americans in posting their purchased Ads!
So, If you are encouraged by what you see as a BC Cascadian, please join us by Registering as a FREE Member/ LIster on GoCascadia.com. Should, additionally, you feel you have talents to contribute to the site's growth behind the scenes, please make contact at: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
Early intentions are to grow the site from the 'Inside-Out...wards!'......... I leave you with my User Name: Gocascas!
Sincerely, Jan Steen
