Wishing good health to all this time of year.

I much prefer a traditional website forum setup instead of how Facebook works. Social media is focused on the "here and now", and old posts (even day old ones) on Facebook are sort of lost forever to me as it doesn't really occur to me to search a FB page for past posts.

I like the categories here and the choices that have been made to serve the discussion.

Creating a thread in the forums for each article and providing a link from the article might get people to comment as well.

That makes sense.

My Asteroids article got over 600 views for example  - I'd imagine even 5-10% might have posted if there had been a link to a discussion thread.  Hard to say of course.
