Planning a crossdreamer forum and chat site
Several of you have asked whether it would be possible to establish an online discussion forum for crossdreamers, a place where we can share life stories and experiences and find friends.
Others have asked for chat rooms for more direct conversations, unhampered by the time lag of blogs like this one.
Finally there are those that are looking for a crossdreamer dating site, where -- for instance -- male bodied transgender persons could meet female to male crossdreamers for friendship and love.
Yes, this would have to a site for both male to female and female to male crossdreamers.
An American friend of mine, Jason Ikeda, has the skills needed to set up a forum and has volunteered to design the site.
We have come to the conclusion that it is best to start out slow, and establish the forum and the chat functions first. If the site is successful, we could add a matchmaker section later on.
There are other forums out there that are oriented towards crossdreamers and crossdressers. Some of them are for the exchange of erotic stories. Others focus more on the practical needs of crossdressers. The point is not to compete with these or more general transgender sites, but to establish an arena where crossdreamers can talk about the ups and downs of their lives.
Finding someone that understands you can be of great help, even if there is no immediate solution to the problems you are facing. Sometimes just hearing about how others have faced the same problem can provide the input you need to go on with your life. And yes, there should also be room for discussion on research, spiritual matters, love, marriage and so on.
We will need help. First of all I would like to ask crossdreaming readers about what kind of boards you would like to see in this forum. Please add comments to this post!
Next we would need help in establishing and running the site. I am particularly concerned about the need for moderators. We need people who can follow the discussion, delete spam, control trolls and add a comforting word or two to crossdreamers in need.
We have access to a server and have no immediate need for funding.
If you are willing to become a moderator or have other skills or types of input that could be of use, please do not hesitate to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jason (email@example.com).
