First of all, what 2013.org is to be:

NOT a replacement for this forum
NOT a replacement for the survival boards on this forum

The intention is for 2013.org to be a forum where folk who are purely interested in post-SHTF survivalism to hang out. That means no discussing religion or politics, no discussing what might or might not happen, no talk about UFOs or dreams.

There are a few pure survivalist forums out there, but I intend for 2013.org to be a bit different:

- people can have their own blogs
- a step towards establishing a global network of survivalists
- strong focus on the "where" aspect of being safe

Ultimately I'm hoping to establish a few exciting initiatives, like a warning system (think a modern version of the phone tree combined with Twitter) so people don't have to wait until the 7pm news to find out they are too late to run for the hills. Or a directory of where people have their survival spots (done in a way that you can only locate them after the SHTF). With a "behind closed doors" section where people can share pics of what they are up to, without the general public having access.

------

If anyone here is interested in being early contributers, mention it below (or PM me) and we'll get things rolling soon. Good contributors who are there from the start will benefit! This is because 2013.org uses the latest (expensive) forum software, making it more in the direction of Facebook. Early adopters who contribute are more likely to become the most popular and stay popular (snowball effect).

I can't promise it will be a huge success, but it has some advantages:

- I'll point to it from Survive2012.com (worked well for this forum...)
- It will be closely connected to the site and ebook I'm working on, SafeSpots.info, which will easily be the best (...only) guide of its type
- I'm starting a newsletter which will tie in all my 2012 sites - latest listings at 2012Base, news items from 2012News and 2012 Blog, guest articles etc - and this will cross fertilize each site & service
- I'll be promoting it with banner ads on other survivalist sites

Oh, and it is for 2012/2013 and beyond. 2013 is just a name, to tie in with 2012 - but the info and usefulness will continue for months, years, decades until the SHTF, if ever.

I've been a member of sites that have rules like this. What happens is the focus gets very narrow.

True VM but given Rob has a family of sites so to speak, having one that is more streamlined with a more narrow focus may be a good thing. As he has mentioned it is not a replacement site but an added 'topic specific' site.

Rob this is a fantastic idea. This is perfect! Good info is necessary too, in whatever conditions we live in today.

Tech challenged her, but I am interested in such a site. After all 2013 and beyond (future world) issues are why I'm here. Where do I sign up?
And if captn_rob is on board I must keep an eye on him so he doesn't get into any trouble. :wink:
