New Administration Appointed

Post by BorgQueen on May 9th 2014, 12:23 am

Hi All,

I have now been made administrator of this forum.

Please bear with me while I play with options and see what I can do now.

If there are any issues you feel need to be addressed, please let me know by posting here.

If for some reason you cannot contact me via this forum, please report issues to my private address (brad at cypherbyte dot com dot au).

Please also feel free to make requests of what you would like to see happen here.

Cheers,
BQ.

You're welcome :-)

I still haven't worked out how to keep the e-mail notifications coming for those of you who like to receive them.  I am trying to get some support, but going by the reaction I am getting, the result is "I have no idea".  Obviously it is not a "standard setting".

Agreed, some of it is straightforward but other areas are just crazy... and some areas I still can't get to because I am not the founder.

I tend to only come here when there is a notification in my e-mail. If I haven't been online for a month then it means there has been no activity on this site for a month ;-)

Hmmm, then we must kick ass and somehow reactivate this forum again. But how? Maybe find more people that start in month one (again)? Or bugger ICS to get a link on their website to this forum? Or find bloggers that blog about their progress in the ICS course and let them do it here in a (special) side-forum? Heck if they even only post url to new post here it would be enough to get some activity with comments, not?

I don't know. I think that as people finish (or quit) ICS, they see no need for this forum any longer. That is why the silence. If ICS are still getting in new members, the very best possibility here is for them to send new members the URL and purpose of this forum.

This raisses the question if the people at ICS know about this forum?

I am sure BDK requested a link to this forum multiple times.  I don't know if or how they responded.
