We have decided to run this new 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.
By default, HFP shows the last page of comments under the article. If you want to see the first page of comments and read them all from beginning to end in order, click here: https://www.headforpoints.com/2020/03/28/the-new-hfp-chat-thread-saturday-28th-march/comment-page-1 The page will refresh with this article but the comments will now show the first page and not the last page.
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 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!
