Sometimes people make reference to other message boards that they've been discussing things on. Just wondering if anyone is willing to share where these forums are? Might also be useful for people relocating.

Thanks in advance.

This is the most popular for relocating. I think they're referring to other vacation forums.

It would be interesting to know where the other forums may be for residents.

There is no other forum exactly like this (i.e. ostensibly devoted to those interested in relocation) but many and varying viewpoints on many things are posted on visitor forums.

You have Trip Advisor, Traveltalkonline, Virgin -Islands-on-line and a few others but they are almost totally visitor questions - some review sites like Yelp and Trip Advisor might be of limited interest - for relocation info I have seen nothing that is anywhere near the information available here and in the many header topics.

http://www.cruciansinfocus.com is a pretty interesting site. It's got a very political slant, and there's lots of racism that goes both ways, but it is full of gossip, melee and political prognostications. This site would be of interest to people who live here already.

Some interesting (and uncensored) threads on the City Data about STT.... Sites designed to promote tourism are heavily censored.

Besides Crucians In Focus (yes IslandJoan, sometimes anti-white racist but a fun morning read for sure) what other blogs cater to residents?

Anyone have any favorites...on Facebook, others?

There are two more that I know of, and they both tend to focus on St Croix. I'm not exactly sure of the correct titles/web addresses, but one is DemManSay (or something like that), and something with Free in the title. I think the one with Free in the title was mentioned on one of the VI Now/Moving Center forums, and there was a link. Maybe you can do a search for Free in the VI Now search box.

There are also the Source online publications.

StThomasBlog.com is another.
