Kaweah Confluence is a free, “off-the-grid”, members-only social site for the town of Three Rivers, California and environs; Kaweah, Hammond, Sequoia NP, Mineral King, Lemon Cove… Built by locals for locals. No corporate ownership, no content manipulation, no agendas.
As a visitor you will not be able to view the forums, groups, or member activity. However community resources, classified ads and community watch reports are available to you.
Kaweah Confluence forums are a place to discuss subjects with broad appeal. There are more than a dozen categorized, members-only forums with an unlimited number of topics you can bring up for discussion.
Starting a forum topic is comparable to posting in your Facebook feed, with the ability of members to reply in nested discussion threads. The difference here is that the topics are easy to find, and never hidden by censorship agendas or paid content.
Forums are hidden from non-members.
Kaweah Confluence groups are a place to post content of specific interest. They are comparable to Facebook groups, plus each group can assign itself a discussion forum. Members can create three types of groups:
- Public groups that all members can see and all members can join.
- Private groups that all members can see but must request to join.
- Hidden groups that only members that have been invited can see and join.
All three types of group are hidden from non-members.
