Welcome to the Katahdin Commons!

The Katahdin Commons has been serving the greater Katahdin region of Maine for the past several years. While we are based in Millinocket, we welcome members and discussions relating to pretty much anything, but particularly the greater Katahdin region and beyond, including Aroostook, Piscataquis, and Penobscot counties.

We welcome those from outside of the Katahdin region, even those outside of Maine. While we welcome your contributions toward our server costs, there is no fee involved in joining the Katahdin Commons.

As political discussions have at time become heated, some of our members prefer to remain anonymous in the forum, while others aren’t concerned with this at all. For this reason, we don’t ask your name during the registration process. Don’t worry, there are plenty of non-political discussions.

Our server costs are $20 a month. The management of the Katahdin Commons has no interest in making a profit from this forum but we would like the community to share in the direct costs of operating this public service. You can do your part by clicking the DONATIONS tab near the top of the page.

Additional forum
Our hope is to soon be able to add an additional forum, rather than to replace this one, utilizing another type of software, and to require real names for participation in this new forum. There is a cost approaching $200 for the software, added to which there will likely be some associated costs. In June, we will begin a drive to collect the money specifically for this; but in the meantime, anything that we collect above our server costs will be used for this purpose.

Shop & Support
Through affiliation agreements, the Katahdin Commons hosts an online shopping site, the proceeds of which will be used to maintain and improve this public service.

Please feel free to join in on the discussion here. If you don’t see a topic that you’re interested in, start one.

From our Founding Fathers: If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify. — Alexander Hamilton
