Starting today, we have decided to run a daily chat thread on Head for Points.
Historically, the daily ‘Bits’ articles were the defacto repository for random comments and questions. It is unlikely that the news flow will be so big over the next few weeks that we will need many ‘Bits’ articles, however.
The comments under this article are where you should post questions about travel and, indeed, anything else on your mind. At this tricky time, and given that many of you are stuck at home self-isolating, we want the HFP community to have a place to chat.
Please only comment under the main articles on the site if your comment is directly related to the topic of the article. This has long-term benefits as its keeps the commentary relevant for people who read those articles in the future.
We will review how this works after a few days:
we could potentially split it into a daily travel and non-travel chat thread
we may install some basic forum software
we may start suggesting potential topics for daily discussion
Let’s see how it goes.
We have sent this initial article to our email subscribers so they are aware of what is going on. From tomorrow, email subscribers will not receive a link to the daily chat thread. If you visit the site, however, a new chat thread will be opened each morning. Regular articles will continue to be emailed.
We will do a separate article in a day or so about how we plan to run the site over the next few weeks. Take care!
