As alluded to in the previous update, there is a new forum available for the fig community at

As fig forums go, will be much like the old figs4fun.  The emphasis will be on the hobby, on helping people learn, and on helping collectors to get all the varieties as cheaply and easily as possible.  The difference is that will have closer moderation than figs4fun in order to prevent the sort of massive crash and exodus that was caused there by self-appointed vigilantes several years ago, or the runaway trolling which finally finished it off last year. 

Since there will be competent moderation at, activities like libel, defamation, tortious interference, wrongful demonization, false accusations of fraud, etc, will not be tolerated.  In other words, will operate in accordance with common sense and the law. 

How 'bout them figs?
