A list of links to all existing Hoo.do (previously Livecloud) channels

Re-edited 4 November 2011
As you will have seen, all exisitng PMs/Dialogs, your own wall and blogs (if you used them) are no longer directly available from this forum. They still exist on the Hoo.do (previously Livecloud) site. This is still working at present, but is totally independent of this forum. So I think that if you make any changes to your personal settings in Gagajoyjoy, this will not change your personal settings in Hoo.do and vice versa. For instance, this means that changing the displayed time would need to be done here and on the Hoo.do site, it you wish to use the Hoo.do site.


Please note that at present there is a bug which prevents anyone from being able to access the Hoo.do site if they are using Safari. You should for the time use a different browser.


If you wish to go to the Social Strata help forum, click on the following link. This help.socialstrata.com support system is for people with questions/suggestions/issues with Hoo.do/Hoop.la/Social Strata services in general. Matters relating to the Gagajoyjoy forum should be posted either in Community Technical Questions/Suggestions or Tips and Tricks.


Social Strata also has a blog which can provide interesting information about updates and other matters.


One of the major changes is that the channels such as The Sinking Ship will be set free of the Hoo.do address and there will no longer be a list of channels from the Explore function.Provided you know the address of the channel, that won't be a problem, but if you have been using this list to access channels, then you would have a problem. Also the Your Channels option visible from the Hoo.do logo will no longer be there. It makes sense to add channels you use to your Favourites (for IE) or Bookmarks (for Firefox).

So in advance of this change, I have coped all the channels addresses as currently shown on the Explore Channels option. Edited 4 November 2011. I have now amended many of the links below to what I hope is now their address. Due to the quantity of links, I have not changed all of them and many of these sites are no longer used. If anyone finds that a link does not work please make a posting here and then I can follow it up.

All things of interest to the African American community.

The Groupee Guide

Groupee Guides Chris and Paul will use Groupee's features to give a detailed response to any question you may have, whether they know the answer or not.

Disclaimer:  Although this is called "The Groupee Guide" and Chris and Paul have identified themselves as "Groupee Guides," their answers do not reflect the opinions of Groupee or anyone involved in its operation, including themselves.  

In addition, this is not an official Groupee support forum.  Chris and Paul will be using the features of Groupee to answer your questions, and you may therefore learn a little something about the product in the process.  However, Chris and Paul will answer questions in the order they choose, and any question that they don't like will most likely be removed.  

In addition, it should be noted that While Chris and Paul will strive to remain truthful in their responses, their answers could lead to injury or death.  As questions are not limited to the Groupee product, this warning extends beyond the use of Groupee's software.  

Don't try this anywhere.

 Health Crowds: Crowdsourcing.Health.Ideas.
Health Crowds began in response to a challenge. Natalie Hodge, M.D. asked Carol Harnett to submit an idea to the Institute for the Future's BodyShock the Future contest. The idea had to be something that would address a global well-being challenge within the next three to 10 years. Carol couldn't figure out how to do this on her own - never mind by the deadline in 10 days. So, Carol decided to crowdsource a submission. She tapped into the Twitter-based group, co_health, and the group crowdsourced a submission using the Employee Wellness Network. In 10 days, over 4500 people viewed the discussion and 17 actively participated. The crowd's idea was 12@12. We made it to the final eight finalists of the IFTF BodyShock Challenge. And, now, we'd like to help put the 12@12 idea into practice. So, that's why we're here...with special thanks to Rosemary O'Neill of Social Strata...who also helped conceive of the 12@12 program.

 Romance Writers Exchange
A long, long time ago, just as the earth was cooling, someone got it in their head a "brilliant" idea.  Being a romance writer, and loving the Internet before anyone even knew what it was, this person set out to create RomEx (The Romance Writers Exchange) on the now-defunct GEnie.  The year was 198-something or other.

RomEx became very popular.  Our person was pleased.  On the bulletin boards she had other writers with the same interests to talk to 24/7/365.  There was live chatting.  There was a library to store good files such as how-to writing articles and whatnot.  There was ... well, a LOT of great things.

Many romance writers heard about this odd thing called GEnie, and this even odder thing called the Internet.  They came from all over the world, just to (finally!) have a place they called home.  It was nice and snug and secure; it had everything for writer's picking up their pen for the first time to writers whose name was easily recognizable.

Like all good things, RomEx came to an end when GEnie died.  The romance writing community mourned the loss of such a precious gift.

Now, our person, who is still very much online, wonders if anyone remembers RomEx.  Good memories?  Bad?  What do you miss?  What don't you miss?  She misses having such a close connection with writers of the same interest.

Fact:  There are a lot of romance writers out here.  And romances aren't "only" romances any more -- the genre now includes suspense, erotica, urban fantasy, and lots more "sub"-genres.

Now, wouldn't it be great to have a place like RomEx again?  A place writers of any genre (including NYTimes Bestseller) can talk freely?  A place where jerks get tossed out on their ascii?

Fact:  I don't know that LiveCloud can support what I have in mind, however I'm going to give it a try.  It would be great to have other writers to talk to for a while.  Again.

Original Post
Wow!  Thanks for doing that

You might want to note that lots of these channels are "driftwood" (sad to say, a couple of them are mine).

Also, I am looking into ways that we can help channel owners (soon to be Hoop.la owners) promote their sites (if they are looking for more members).  Anyone who wants help with promotion can ping me directly via email or dialog...I've got lots of ideas percolating!
Also, in case you lose track of that email, remember that all you will have to do is substitute "hoop.la" where you normally have "livecloud.com" in the address of the Channel.  Although, you will be automatically directed.
I wasn't ignoring Low's question, as I'm just another user here, and know nothing about private channels.

If Low means a private message or a blog, then if he goes to the Livecloud site (the link to that is at the top of the first post here), he will find the old ones still there.
