As we discussed at our club meeting last evening, we have opened several of our Forums to read-only viewing without requiring a logon to our website. We are doing this to make it easier for our members to “click-through” the links in our Forum-related email messages and view new Topics and Replies without having to login. This also makes a portion of the great content in our Forums visible to the Amateur Radio community and to the general public.
Note that you will still need to login if you want to create a new Forum Topic or post a reply to an existing Topic.
A few of our Forums will remain members only with the same access restrictions that we had previously. The Forums which remain private include:
- Swap Meet Forum
- Instructors and VEs Forum
- Board Forum
Also note that our previous Members Forum has become the General Information Forum and is also now read-only viewable without logging in. This is a good place to post general information that is not club members-only business. Topics for the General Information Forum might include information about our meetings, events and activities, notice about new content on our website or general topics that might be interesting to our members as well as visitors and other Amateurs.
Note that things posted in our Forums will not appear in our newsletters. Articles that you create which you’d like to appear in our newsletters should be created using the tools under the Articles menu on our website.
Finally, we have create a new Members Only Forum for private club business that only our members should see. Please use this new forum sparing as we want other Amateurs in our area to be able to see our club’s many activities and other information so that they may visit us and take advantage of the many resources that we provide to all Amateurs.
Please contact Bill Hammond or myself if you have any questions about these changes.
