I see the marker for my farm as having free WiFi on the map but the marker shows Hillsboro, WI, and this is not the correct location. How does one move the marker to the correct location?Official response from Nicole Bienfang completed
You would have to update the location to the address that you want to use.

When adding spaces, the privacy indicators are not appropriate for some of the categories. For instance, when talking about land, it isn't exactly appropriate to say a private room, entire place, or a shared room. It doesn't seem to apply. The same when speaking of a RV/Caravan/Motor Home hook up - private or shared room doesn't really apply.Official response from Nicole Bienfang incomplete
What privacy indicators would you like to have available for those types?

Hi, very disappointed that I can't stream videos as I'm outside of the US. You need to consider non-US people. Perhaps add them to another streaming service / CDN service to bypass these draconian restrictions.Official response from Nicole Bienfang started
This is why we ask our international users to help us locate these films on sites that are accessible to them.

Keep a hard copy file of Transition supporters, their locations and perhaps phone numbers, if available. Update this perhaps once a year. This would be back up in the event of an internet crash, or being locked out of the internet for whatever reasons.

There's currently overwhelmingly many films on the list for someone only getting started. There should be a few general ones highlighted as a starting point such as Zeitgeist Moving Forward and anything else that's highly recommended by many people. Also the sections would be better if they were expandable, rather than having to load a new page.Official response from Nicole Bienfang considering

Nicole Bienfang responded to my favorite recipes with planned 2018-05-30 06:29:08 -0500 on May 30, 2018 at 06:29 AM (CDT)
FACT: There is enough fluoride in a tube of fluoridated toothpaste to actually kill a child!
· Fluoride (Fluorine)
Fluoridated water is neither benign nor beneficial . To begin with, the fluoride found in our drinking water is anything but natural. It is actually hydrofluosilicic acid, a by-product of heavy industry, especially the fertilizer and aluminum industries. What are other uses for this substance? Try…
Rat poison, and
Sarin nerve gas – just to name a few.
Scrapped off factory chimneys and smelters, it is rightfully considered a poison and treated as a dangerous bio-hazard when handling. However, this EXACT same substance is then mixed into our drinking water, and by some yet unknown alchemical reaction (sarcasm) what was minutes before a deadly industrial waste suddenly becomes a so-called “healthy” adjunct to our basic water supply.
Problems with Fluoride
The major problems with fluoride are two-fold. The first is Iodine Displacement - fluoride slowly but surely displaces iodine in our thyroid. The second is Dosage -the more water one drinks, the more fluoride one consumes. Also, we must take into account every time we shower or bath, our skin absorbs huge amounts of fluoride (and chlorine) – much more so than drinking.
When we also consider that fluoride is found in most toothpastes, each day becomes a gamble as to just how much fluoride is actually entering the body.
Making your own toothpaste saves money, gives you a feeling of accomplishment, and allows you to leave out all the harmful ingredients commercial toothpaste is made of… Oh yeah, and they all take less than 5 minutes to prepare. And it's easy!
I have made my own toothpaste for years. These recipes call for easy to come by ingredients like baking soda and organic peppermint essential oil.
I am sharing 3 easy to make recipes today. If you don’t like one, simply make recipe 2 and so on. Once you make your own toothpaste I don’t think you will ever go back to using store bought stuff again!

it's a hybrid of more than one alternative building method, such as earthship using cobb instead of concrete and living roof, but the 95% of the building materials are recycled. This building method uses the most sustainable technology when possible such as methane digest for fuel or Fresnel lenses for hot water, etc. Technique developed and researched by community builders at Wanderers End Villages.Official response from Nicole Bienfang considering

I found it a bit of a difficult task and I think there should be more advice on how to do this. Hosting movie screenings or other events isn't really feasible for someone who doesn't have a group yet. I'd suggest something like: "If you're part of other changemaking groups, online or offline, try talking to someone there about it" and make a list of benefits to joining (meeting new people, getting advice when stuck, sharing skills and experience etc) so people can sell the idea better. Also maybe re-word it to "Tell at least one other person about The Transition" and in a later phase, have a task of actually convincing someone to join.Official response from Nicole Bienfang completed
That page exists here: https://www.thetransition.org/examples_of_spreading_the_word you can submit your own content to your point person directly with pictures and screenshots as well to be included on this page. Also lots of people are finding success by having people listen to this podcast https://www.thetransition.org/the_transition_featured_on_the_sustainable_living_podcast.
