How did you find the new site?

Post by Red Ryder » Thu Oct 27, 2016 1:25 pm

I'm extremely pleased to watch everyone slowly find their way to the new site.

Just curious how you found the new site?

I posted to reddit, MDB, RFM, and a few other places. It looks like Google is slowly catching on to a search for new order mormon.

I saw it on ex/mo reddit. Glad I saw it, topics tend to go by kind of fast on there.

Hey Red:

I checked into Reddit almost daily. There is also a Pirate that roams the area that I kept in touch with. :shock:
I love the idea of blasting a message to temple square.
Did I Thank you and the other brethren for the work you put into the new site?
Let get a marketing or a PR firm and get the message out there. Lets get paypal up and going and I will be the first to donate!
I am pledging a donation now.

The Mormon Discussions forum. There were at least a couple of threads about what was going on with NOM.

I lurked on MDB.

When NOM when down I did a lot of google searches for anything NOM and searched exmo reddit a little obsessively. I found out about NOM 2.0 on the NOM subreddit.

I don't post much of anything meaningful, but NOM is my sanity check. Sometimes when I'm surrounded by all the crazies, I start to think I'm the one losing it. Then I come here. Thanks for setting it up. I can't say it enough. If I knew any NOMS in real life, I'd let them know.

Google search. I kept searching a few times a week since the old site went down. I almost started crying at work when I pulled this site up and saw you all!

I had all but weaned myself off from Mormon chat rooms, blogs, etc., when I happened to see a post on RfM. I've been on everyday since. I've relapsed, s---

I finally searched google to see if nom members were talking anywhere about what happened and a Reddit thread lead me to the Mormon Discussion thread titled Calling Thayne.

I'm glad the site went up quickly after I found the MD thread because people were getting anal over there.

Thanks again for putting this site together.

Seriously, I googled "Red Ryder Newordermormon". A thread on MDB (I think it was) was the second link. The first was from the old site.

You can always count on Red Ryder!

What's this Facebook thing I keep hearing about?

Does anyone know how to get ahold of wonderment, the running mom, and so many others? We still have to find about 4900 lost NOMs.
