Ok i think i've got it now Jblair but it seems most people use the public areas so now i'm thinking we may not need it what do think :-/ i think the display day section could go as we want every body on the forum to come i don't think we have many serects about this one................... that covers all fullstops i should have used.Deadly
For example discussions about what the Club does and doesn't do with the website and the forum is really a discussions for the Club members.
The idea of the forum FAQ is for questions and answers. This questions about a private area for HCVC members should really be put into one of the locations within that area. Such as this!
The other point is the Display day section may need to be reworded. The idea of this is to give members that attend the display day but are unable to attend meetings to have an ability to give us feedback on how to improve the event. While there is no reason and should be encouraged for any one to give us feedback via the event chat page. There may be a requirement to keep certain items underwraps. Also the Display day section in the members area could also be used as a communication point for the organising group to get feedback or assistance from the members.
The main purpose of the forum is to establish better communications with our members and other like minded people in our community. But there will be times when items of a sensitive nature have to be kept within the membership. I'm certain you have already seen some of those communications that must be kept within the membership! I know you have activley participated in one such discussion that would not be of any benfit to people outside of the Club. :
Another thing that could be done is make another "secret" area for committee only discussions! Where only committee members can get into! Only limited by your imagination!
