Isn't there also a site with Kossacks in the name? I could have sworn someone at DU posted about it. merrily Apr 2016 #27

I believe that DU has always supported only Democratic candidates, even from the start in 2001. CaliforniaPeggy Apr 2016 #9
Agreed - However, In 2001 Being Democrat Was Progressive - Now, Being Democrat Is Corporate. cantbeserious Apr 2016 #11
+1 In 2000, being a Democratic was in flux from progressive to corporate, but many did not know. merrily Apr 2016 #28
Exactly what has happened and is DU's direction IMO. Just like the current democratic party, I feel RKP5637 Apr 2016 #52

To be trite, look outside the box. delrem Apr 2016 #15
The long-term plan may be re-aligning the parties, moderate Republicans and center right Dems merrily Apr 2016 #29

The NYT was a poor choice of feed. davenelson5555 Apr 2016 #20
Why a new board, rather than joining JPR or caucus99? merrily Apr 2016 #24
The software and format. MelissaB Apr 2016 #34
? But that board's format is not like DU's, either. merrily Apr 2016 #35
Melissa is a website designer. FYI. jillan Apr 2016 #48
Please see Reply 47. If the idea is that people like DU's software they know that. If she's willing merrily Apr 2016 #50
I do not know what replies look like in the Revolution site, but it is easier than JPR at LiberalArkie Apr 2016 #60
Those sites are ok davenelson5555 Apr 2016 #39
Thanks, but that does not answer my question. You could have worked with them on format. merrily Apr 2016 #44
I could have, but wanted to make my own site davenelson5555 Apr 2016 #56
I suspected that was the reason, but I was curious, aka nosey. Thanks for answering. merrily Apr 2016 #58

Oh yeah. I am registered. I posted a few times jillan Apr 2016 #45
