Would it be possible to start a forum for carers? (Carers, that is, of the unpaid kind who look after a friend or relative) I can't find one on Hub as yet, but I don't know whether there is a demand for it on this site. I only know that I am a carer and can't find any forums for this group of people.
There isn't a forum for that, but if you want to start a discussion about it you may want to start a thread under "Family and Parenting", and ask something like, "Are you a primary care-giver for a family member?" or "What's the hardest thing about being a primary-caregiver for a family member?" Of course, you can make up whatever question/comment you want about being a primary-caregiver. Whatever it is you'd like discussed, it's probably worth mentioning, "If you're a primary caregiver of a family member..." (You could start a few threads about being a primary caregiver. I imagine there would be people who would have something to say.)
Don,t know which country you live in,but a google search should give you some info.
This is one in the UK.

You may have noticed that Lisa HW used the term "caregiver," which is more common in the US. Since "carer" seems to be more usual in the UK and perhaps elsewhere, you might want to use both terms in the title of a forum thread that you start.
When I first saw this current thread title, I thought perhaps "careers" had been misspelled; then (before I checked), I thought it might have something to do with cars. LOL - I may be slow, I know. Anyway, since there are different words for this, you might try using the different words to attract a wide participation.

There are a lot of us who haven't been feeling safe on the forums. They've felt stalked, harassed and browbeaten.Sadly, some folks go with the letter of the law, but not the spirit of it in their posts.For an excellent post on why we need Forum Moderators, check out what Makingamark says here...

Okay this is great! I downloaded it this morning, and it's really working wonderfully. We all know Edweirdo, a very clever and useful hubber who created the HubDefender tool for us all which detects hub-theft and assists in dealing with it. Edweirdo has also written many helpful tutorial hubs on...

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

Edit: I stepped in it this time. The title is in reference to the play, “Death of a Salesman”. I am seeking information on why people stop posting in forums...Original OP:Be advised that any postings here may or may not be attributed in my hub. Say what you mean and mean what you say.Category...

This is a two part problem, although I believe the first part may just be because of my browser.1. When in normal Chrome, forum does not load and is a completely grey screen. I can access "your" by typing it at the end of the URL. The forum loads normally when in Chrome incognito.2. When...

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much more than the link to the person's Hub.Surely the forums are places to discuss...
