ABOUT GOOGLE+ SHUTTING DOWN AND THE FUTURE OF THIS COMMUNITY; MOVING OVER TO UNITEDFEDERATIONOFPLA DOT NET/S

So, a lot of people, including myself, are upset that Google+ is shutting down and there are lots of posts about where we are all going to go next so we can continue sharing with each other. I have a solution but I want to gauge interest first.

Just over 5 years ago, I created http://unitedfederationofpla.net/s/ for this community's book club. It needs a few updates (please ignore some of the outdated things) but not many. It has forums (I just need to add a few more topics), ability for people to post to their profiles just like here, ability to add friends, and much more.

We would still have moderators. Members would have to request to join like now. The privacy laws I am bound by are more strict than what Google has to comply with. Your data would be protected against the Patriot Act and is compliant with GDPR and Canadian privacy laws.

I don't care about numbers of members. As always, I care about quality and people's safety. So even if only 20-50 people are interested, then we will get this done before August.

Of course, you are free to go wherever you want, but it's very doubtful I'll be joining any of the other things mentioned for a variety of reasons.

Since this post is pinned, here are the community guidelines https://plus.google.com/+JulesSherred/posts/c9mfPPm4fqy

Hey all! A quick note about Google Plus' spam filter and link shorteners.

Just a quick heads-up from a housekeeping standpoint. We've seen an increased volume in spam recently. As a result, Google Plus' spam filters are currently working overtime, though some of it is still getting through.

Because the spam filters are working overtime, they are also catching a lot of legitimate posts; specifically posts that are using link shorteners.

If you post something with a link shortener and you don't see it, please be patient. I try to clean out the spam folder a couple times a day, so it will be visible eventually. Or, just avoid using a link shortener so your post appears right away.

If your post was marked as spam for breaking the don't hog the mic guideline, those won't be cleared. Google Plus' spam filters work to also prevent people from posting multiple posts in a short period of time because that is how most of the spam bots work.

And if you see a spam post that got through the filters, please do not hesitate to tag one of the moderators in the comments so they can remove/block/report as spam.

You can now pre-order Kid2's EP

'In The Land Of Dust' is the first effort of Catharsis band members Kyle West and Tristan Renaud.

It serves as a snapshot of the Cowichan Valley in which they have always resided. With not many activities for young creatives, it leaves much to be desired. With drugs and alcohol being extremely easy to get a hold of, patterns of trauma occur more then residents would like to admit.

While lots of people claim to have disdain for the Valley, very few of those people ever leave. Kyle and Tristan saw the uniqueness of their climate as an opportunity to make something special. An EP with a concept about drug-induced trauma and the relationship one may have with their homeland gives a vision to outsiders on what it feels like to be a young person in the Cowichan Valley.

Designed for deep listens with minimal yet concentrated lyrics and chaotic-at-times instrumentation, Catharsis sets up their opening statement with a bang.

I haven't posted outside of my communities in a while, but Kid2 is releasing an EP called 'In the Land of Dust' on August 18. Today, he released the finished version of his first single, "Feelin' Brazy". Be prepared for me to promote the shit out of album in the coming weeks. In the meantime, enjoy his first single
