whats everyone's vews on a new metal detecting forum?

Stating a new metal detecting forum is an idea I have been toying with for a while now and after yesterday I'm almost certain I want to give it a go.

I want to get a general feel for the idea from everyone. I am planning for it to be a responsible detectorists forum but how I ensure that the members are is a stumbling point for me so far. I want it to be a forum
totally different to what the others are, being that I wamt want both ends of the spectrum to be able to have a voice. To achieve this I feel it is important that I can get responsible detectorists, Pas, archaeologists and also archaeobloggers  onboard with the project.

My hopes are that this new metal detecting forum can spread the word of responsible metal detecting and will also give space for ideas and concerns to be addressed by all parties involved, which as yesterday proved is not available on the current detecting forums.

So there we go, thats the plan/idea. What does everyone think?


  1. It's a lot of work and there are a lot of dead forums about. It would be nice to see though!

  2. I agee it is the work involved and also the risk that it will be hijacked by the bandits.
