Hey folks. Some of you may have noticed that the forum is no longer available here on the main site, originally at http://forum.everydaycarry.com/. After some deliberation and review of the forum activity we've decided to sunset the feature and encourage all our forum members to join our Facebook group instead: the Everyday Carry Inner Circle.

We've been extremely happy with how the group has turned out so far since its creation last August, and appreciate the active discussions and awesome contributions from our almost 2,800 members. Because of this, we've decided to focus on the group instead rather than continue to support the legacy forum.

It has had its own set of issues over the years from problematic technical issues behind the scenes to an unstoppable wave of spam, and at the end of the day the upkeep and maintenance of the forum is no longer feasible, especially in light of how active the Facebook group has been in its stead.

We know that many without Facebook accounts are reluctant to create one just for the purpose of joining a group, so we will do our best to make it worth your time by providing a healthy and active community with exclusive channels of discussion and feedback with the EDC team.

We hope this isn't too big of a loss and we can continue to keep the EDC conversation going within our Inner Circle. See you all on the other side, and carry on!

Join the EDC Inner Circle

Well, this move to Facebook marks the end of my EDC adventures with you guys!
I friggin hate Facebook....
Not sure if this matters, but I am reading that the everydaycarry.com site will still exist-- just the user forum where you could have sidebar conversations is gone. I suspect some folks misunderstand and think the whole site is being closed.

This is correct. This is specifically for the discussion forum; the main site itself and how it functions, comments, and any other interaction places on the site will be untouched.

Pity. I'm one of the many who has quit Facebook and will never go back. Nice knowing you guys!
Sorry, been nice knowing you. Faceook is corrupt and is full of scams and is only out sell people out to the anyone with a buck. Oh and you don't need my friends list either. If people are gonna use it restrict the data EDC gets, they just want facebook so they can sell more crap and give their advertisers/sponsors more data on you.

Forcing people to use a service that sells users' information if they want to be part of the community... great.

You don't have to use Facebook and you don't have to be negative about the situation. I'm kind of relieved about it. It you don't want to use Facebook and be a part of the Facebook EDC community, okay. It's not a loss for you. You'll still be able to interact here on the item discussions and it means you will have more time to go shopping for EDC stuff.
Ok, but can you fix all the spam that stays up on your site for days at a time?
