We called this place a community, rather than a forum, on purpose.
In my mind, a community is a place that brings together people who have a shared sense of identity for some common purpose, and to allow them to achieve a goal (or several).
It is broad definition, but it differentiates a place like this from social media (a common platform, but not a shared identity) and from support sites.
I believe that we are here because we are members of The Society, we want to make the most of that status to enjoy wine and life, and not only to buy better for ourselves, but to help other members do the same.
With that definition in mind, I’m very interested to know what OTHER communities you take part in and which mean the most to you? Which ones could you not live without? These don’t have to be online like this one.
