Saphir12 has answered me.
We can put something up somehow on the WCG Facebook page. I'll have to try it out tomorrow.
I'm with SeriousCrunchers myself now, but intend to move to Kraland
when their Kraland XI Challenge
https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,40427_offset,170#578658
begins. During the remainder of May, it will be possible for me to join various teams.
Please let me know which candidates, you may have taken some liking to.

"Advertisement"
I have tried to post this message

We are Base Camp
We want to get in touch with team captains/members who would like to get a boost and promote their WCG team with a visit from a Base Camp crew in return for social interaction. Please make a post here:
https://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/forums/wcg/viewthread_thread,17232_lastpage,yes#lastpost
- or a reply to this post Smiley


on the WCG page
https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=world%20community%20grid
But I cannot find out how to do it. I have e-mailed Saphir12 from team Kraland again and explained - I think - a little better what I want to do. This is what I wrote:

I think I did not express clearly what I wanted to do.
On the World Community Grid Facebook page we would
like to put an 'advertisement' up, but I cannot see how
it can be done.

We would like it to say:

I see many groups here
How can you make such one?

Do you need to have a Facebook group to post something?
I once made such one, but took it away again.
I think I could make a new one if that is necessary.


Perhaps sujo1 who is on Facebook could take a look at that WCG Facebook page and see if he can find out what to do.
And post our ad if he can do it. The text is ^^^ up there for a copy and paste job.
In principle it doesn't matter who does the posting as I see it.

Another issue
Should I inform all Base Campers of this 'meeting place' in a post in our Base Camp thread
- or should we let it mature a bit before doing it?
Does you do 'vetting' of the members as you used to do, TLD?

You can inform anybody you like, this is an open forum.
"Does you do 'vetting' of the members" if you mean vetting members of Base Camp then no i don't want any part of that.

As this - as you say - is an open Forum, there is no need for the 'vetting' you made when we had our castle.

We have an advertisement on the WCG Facebook page:
https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=world%20community%20grid

I made a screenshot of it for you TLD which should be attached to this post.

Sorry, that attachment came doubly. I cannot see where I can edit things here.

TLD, if you have no Facebook account, I take it you cannot see the pictures I post in our Base Camp team thread when they are in an 'album' - is that right?
You can have an absolutely private and neutral Facebook account that allows you to see other pages as for instance the WCG page or what else might interest you.
Mine was such a snoopy one for a while.

No i can't see anything on facebook.
I'm not interested in facebook or any of those "social media" things. I'm a very private person and stay out of other peoples business and expect others to stay out of my business. As far as i have heard they are just interested in spying on you.

I know, TLD, and respect that even as I care about how you're doing.

Yes, they want to know all about you.
And they eat a lot of your time.
That's one reason why they host your pictures for free.
You are the product.
They want to customize the selection of ads to you and the way their algorithms determine you are.
- but what if you are a lousy consumer?
I guess there are plenty of big shoppers, tho'

I remember in our Castle - the Base Camp forum - they took 'Base Camp' literally.
They put up ads for outdoors life
- and sometimes there was a spillover from the previous visitor such as a Russian dating service  Shocked
 ... which definitely not was what they could sell to a woman  Grin
But then again, algorithms have been improved upon immensely since then.
