This was the title of of the small newspaper cutting, which I found in an unusual “Tidyup,”
The date 2004 ,the article referred to Greypath,a popular seniors website, has initiated an online seniors thinktank on ageing issues.
So I’m wondering is this when Greypath forum began? I guess Mr Ray Lewis (or maybe Jack Spratt) are able to tell us!
I think Dusty is correct and that 2002 or 2003 is the time that Greypath first started providing a means by which seniors could express their views. Ray would know for sure of course.
Greypath itself kicked off in 2000 according to the “About” page on this website.
I started with Greypath around 2005 I think and there was something already in place. We introduced a content management system soon after that enabled us to try a lot more things. Coffee Shop, Senate (from the start) and various other forums on what we thought were useful and helpful general topics.
I wrote a reply to this, but as happens every so often to me it has disappeared.
Yes Greypath started in 2000 and it became the worlds top site for seniors and had many many interesting areas, but as other senior sites started to appear ,the appeal for what was offered on Greypath started to wane and it was gradually cut down to the few areas left you see today, and of course then Facebook appeared plus other similar very popular sites, so greypath is just hanging in there these days.
I think Ray must sometimes wonder if he should close it down.
I joined Greypath very early on, but only ever looked, it took quite some time for me to start writing posts, oh what can I write that people wont think silly but as years go by you start to think who cares. if they think I have written something silly.
I don’t know how valid this is, but today going through some old diaries, I came upon this one from 30 December 1998,re Greypath. http://www.greypath.com/portal/Think Tank? T Tindex.I’m unsure whether these next three letters are htm ntm?!
