Hello @LuLupeKitty and welcome to the forum… we are very happy you’ve found us and sorry that you didn’t see the emails that were sent out. The forum went live to everyone back in April after extensive trials to a small group, and emails were sent to all members to announce this at that time.
Since then we’ve regularly encouraged our members to come and join the conversations in our monthly Trusted Times newsletters, at the end of many of the blogs and other email communication pieces. The link is also on the footer of the website.
We’ve been continually looking at ways to let our members know that the community is here for them, and today an important integration was put in place so that this forum (run separately on the Discourse channel) is now accessible via your options when in your dashboard, making it easy to get to the forum and back again.
I’m sorry you haven’t found us before and I’ve just seen your other message about email notifications, which I will merge here to keep your queries together. Can I ask if you’ve been receiving other email correspondence such as Trusted Times? Please feel free to DM if you’d prefer. It might be that we need to get membership services to take a look at your account.
In the meantime we hope you’ll enjoy connecting with other members here. All the best.
