After a discussion by the Admin team (and the suggestion from Lee) we have switched the UKAI Facebook page over to a Private / Closed group. We hope that this will keep attracting our active members over from the forum and give peace of mind that anyone wishing to join the FB group can do so with confidence.

Cheers
The Admins

I don't post things often but regularly read through new posts and comment if I can post anything useful. I also dislike Facebook mostly because I can't stop it offering inappropriate "friend"suggestions. As a result I never post anything publicly. If the group is to be closed, I will be a lot happier about it.

I've just had a try looking for the group and can't find it. How do I locate it and register please?

I'm also on SGL so may see some of you there.

Thanks for those great words, folks.... you who have posted to this thread make up the the majority of the "usual posters"...

I will miss a lot of this.... I did like the Image of the Month competition (although was really hard work to judge & sort out)

As has been said, the amount of searchable information on here is VAST (and maybe Google has contributed to our demise?)

I hate FB but I realise it is a necessary evil.... if an old fart like me can get used to it.... anyone can!

Sad news indeed, I joined way back at the beginning and it felt great to be involved, there was a real buzz about the new "astrophotography" forum, I received great advice and fun banter from the likes of  Coxy, Synner, Fordster, Nick H, Gee to name a few. All good things come to an end as they say.  I wish everyone well and hope you all continue to look up.

Cheers

Is there an actual closure date, just so we don't suddenly log in and find it is not there any more.

I'm not sure how often you check and add new members to the FB account but I made a request to be added some days ago but don't appear to have been added as yet - the UKAI home page page still says pending ?
