Really new - most links don't work yet. Some stuff on there I hadn't come across yet, though, including that ribbon thing. It's not going to seduce me away from here, though...

Thanks for posting that, nikkiana.

*update* I tried to contact the website, but they don't have their emial set up yet, it seems. Meanwhile, I came across http://www.uk-poly.net/ too, which has this rather charming description on the front page:

"There is no right way to be polyamorous, (poly folk are a diverse bunch that seldom are able to agree on what to have for breakfast). It is not exclusively about heterosexuality, homosexuality or bisexuality. It is not even about having multiple partners, (many poly folk have less than one)..."

Yoxi, the first link you posted -- http://www.polyamory.org.uk/# -- with the broken links looks as though it is gonna be fabulous when they get it up and running, fully! I can't wait to see it. Post a reminder if you see new and interesting activity there. Thanks! ... Oh, I didn't register at the other site. Did you? If it's interesting I'd like to know.

James

the uk-poly.net site is a very slow forum at the moment - mainly consists of messages from people saying 'so... is there anybody out there?' - but I've started chatting with a Kanuck in Scotland, ah, diversity...

Thanks, Yoxi.

I just wanted to give a "heads up" on the presence of two new topics over in the gay, bi-, queer group at http://www.polyamory.com/forum/group.php.

"The Q word" and "The B word".

The uk-poly.net site seems to be attracting people looking for group sex or swapping or something. I don't think the concept of polyamory has caught on over here very strongly yet, except among the youngsters. I was a surprised that my counsellor had never heard the term before - and she lives in Glastonbury, the heartland of meta-norms!

Here's a live chat space for polyamorous gays.

http://gaypoly.weebly.com/chat.html

It appears there is no need to register in order to utilize the live chat system. The site has very little participation at this time, but perhaps folks here can use their chat thingy at arranged times? Also, if folks here are on at the same moment and they want to chat, they can just say so ....

Here's a global map with the current time everywhere(!):

You must refresh the page each time you want the time to update.

Hi guys, I was really pleased to find your posts about polyamory.org.uk, it's my new site and I'm really glad you like the demo page (don't know how it got on to Google already, but hey :P ). The official launch date is June 21st (I thought summer solstice was quite fitting). I've contacted a few people to contribute so if people on here want to get involved let me know. I need people to submit articles, book/film reviews, anything the community would like to see really. The idea of the site is to keep it UK/European in focus and to make it modern, sex positive and informative to experienced polys and the general public alike.

Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Graham

Graham,

Your site looks as if it will be tremendously good! Very ambitious. Almost makes me wish I were over there on your side of the "pond". I'll be keeping a close eye.
