The Chiff & Fipple Group on Facebook is now the "official" status page for news and updates when the Chiffboard is down or experiencing problems.

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2229480589

Please bookmark the page for future reference. Or, it's easy enough to find and remember. :-)

You don't need a Facebook account in order to view the page.

Any chance you can register a custom URL?
Like http://www.facebook.com/chiffandfipple
for example. That would be WAY easier to
remember. I think they let you do that for
any page that has at least 25 members.

Thanks fearfie, we'll look into that. As it is, if you Google "chiff fipple facebook", our group page is the first hit.

Just a bump to remind everyone about the existence of the Chiff & Fipple group on Facebook as an alternate point of contact in the event of Chiffboard problems.

http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2229480589

or just Google "chiff fipple facebook" to find it.

Thanks!

Great idea, but I'm darned if I can see how to do it.

No, that takes me to my personal Facebook account's settings, not the group settings.

Hmmmmmm, I get a 'sign in or create an account' page from that link. Maybe because I have been very rude about facebook sometimes, and it heard me.

:-) Yes, apparently this has changed since I first posted the above. I've asked Dale to look into making the page world-readable again, if possible.

Regardless, the FB group will still be where we post outage notices for now. In case of an extended outage, we will also post a notice to thesession.org.
