It was brought up in the Self sufficient Zombie apocalypse thread by  Spencer Miles a couple hours ago. 

It seems there ought to be a major section of Permies that is dedicated to addressing the realities of connecting deeply with other human beings (more so than there is now, and not merely for trading canned-goods) 

  What does the masses think?

I'm under the impression that the permies forum is meant to be more practical/informative, there is the possibility of using the community/whateverlocalarea forums to try and connect with people more nearby? Otherwise we can use the Meaningless Drivel forum for gushy stuff, since there's no pretending that it's directly (and particularly) related to sustainable agriculture/living. I have no shame admitting I am a driveling fool!

Hi!

It seems good that, seeing as someone has democratized my thought, I should stop by!

YES! There MUST be a practical element to this. I am also drivelous (just wrote poetry on one thread - sorry if it's gushy... has a point...) so it is necessary to do this. FOCUS!!

How about a Zip Code search? Like a Permies MeetUp equivalent? (With the added quixotic hope for us singles of a rather dirt-and-work minded persuasion - not that I would be lecherous or anything, but it's kinda lonely on my mountain...)

How to facilitate the creation of SMALL and LOCAL groups of permie-types - no mass movement, no political/religious angle? Just. Humans. Being. Human.

For my own part, God willing and the creek don't rise, I close on my square on the 20th of this month (put off 2 times already!) but that'll be in US Zip Code 81252 - The Wet (sort of...) Mountains of Colorado.

If Tributary House Ltd. can be of any assistance in this regard, lemme know ya ya? Don't have many resources, but such as they are...

I guess I was not as sure, actually, what you are wanting/ needing.  I thought, upon reading that, that you were looking at some kind of forum about building community, or personal relations, which I think is more of something that is potentially needed that is not provided on this site.  Perhaps I should have suggested you start the thread based on your quest, since your ideas, now elaborated on, are somewhat different than I thought.  At any rate, when it comes to meet-ups and such, and singles situations, we do have our regional forums for people to post about their area, and meet up as groups, and we also have a permaculture singles group, for those who are looking for a partner in the personal life/endeavors.  I think that, considering what you posted in this thread, that those might  adequately address your needs.    ??

All things are possible...

For making new forums, we first look at the current forums to see if we already have one that fits the bill.  We have a lot of forums already.  Seeing the full list like that we can usually find something.

If we don't have a forum, the next question is "does the new forum idea fit with the aims of this site?"  Aka, is it focused on practical, concrete solutions?

If yes, we start making new threads to fit in that forum.  A new forum needs to be populated within 24 hours or google ignores it.  Once we have 50 threads started (start them in meaningless drivel forum until the new one is ready) then we can make the forum and move the threads over.

  If you go to the side of the page you will see the greater forums.  Within these are subforums.  So if you click on Community, you will open up a page and on the right side of this is a list of the subforums within community, and Permaculture Singles is in that list.    The regional forum is a greater forum which appears on the left side of your page when you are looking at Permies.
