Ok gang - these TOPICs in Google Groups are NOT working the way I thought they would. SO, I'm going to delete them.
You can create a new Topic for what you wish to discuss using the button at the top of the web ui. OR, just create a descriptive subject line that makes your intent clear if you prefer to engage via email. Google is good at search but better when we help it. :)
I've also added the keywords to the Facebook group, and you have the option of adding them to help make things more findable later on in the group search, which is kind to newcomers and for that moment of "where did I see that?"
Cheers all, Happy Friday!
