PostSubject: New Sub-Forum linked to the main BAOR-Location Web Pages   29/9/2010, 12:12

It is my intention that in the very near future, readers of the BAOR-Location Web Pages will be invited to join and post their submissions via this forum.

Submissions will be read by myself & other Moderators/Editors and will be opened and remarks left as to action taken.

i.e. I/we EDIT the post to say 'added to xxxx page 01/10/xx' etc

This is for a trial perade to see if

a) it boasts the forum membership

b) makes it easer for comments to be made

c) makes it easer & faster for these submissions/changes to be actioned.

e-mails to the webmaster via the site will be limited to observations (which may get copied here) or error reports

WHY !! The present system appears to work perfectly, apart from posting photos. From my uderstanding of what you are proposing is vetting and censorship of our submissions, will this lead to only what is approved being posted? If it aint broke dont fix it.

Is this because the odd Anglo Saxon expletive has been slipped in occasionally ?

I get frustrated at not being able to post photos, etc but apart from that everything works well !

NO NO NO NO Please read what it says...
It does NOT change how you use the forum at all....

It is for submisions for the Web Site NOT the Forum, as it gives people the chance to add pictures and others to read before/while they are being added to the Location Pages. Meaning you get to see the changes as they happen.

All it planned to do is re-direct NEW submitters here to post thier observations, additions & amendments to the Main BAOR-Locations Web Site.

Currantly they all come to me only via e-mail, and submiters do not visit the forum, it is a way to generate visiters to the forum NOT to be censered in any way. Where does it say that?

Site Editors will then pick up these posts and work them into posts on the http://baor-locations.co.uk/ at thier own pace without me having to share them out, and in some cases getting no reply.

Hope this makes it more clear to you.

I am also looking for new editors to help maintain the Main Site.

PICTURES IN POSTS

Check out the Picture Icons as they have been fixed.

Takes you to 'Host a Picture' where you can upload from your PC and be given a URL to post

or

Takes you to 'Post a Picture' from a Hosting Site such as PhotoBucket

Here is an example I have uploaded here and now to this post:


Your Log-in for picture hosting is your e-mail address which in in your user profile, and your forum password

I have now start to copy messages from my BAOR Locations e-mail account onto forum.

Moderators/Editors can pick up and amend site, then post message to say Action Taken

and/or

Members can add extra comments or amendments etc.

By the end of this month, All new site (NOT Forum) comments will be directed here.

Mike,
I have been PM'd by a contributor who says he will not submit any further stuff if you are going to publish his email address and details in open forum. I think there is a problem with this idea from that point of view. With the old way we answered them privately and gave them the option of anonymity. Could you have a look at this. Cheers

A very good point Chris. We don't want to miss out on any information because the contributor objects to being named. Mind you I am intrigued as to why anyone would not want credit for supplying info?

Point taken.

Future contrubtions will not have e-mail added as they will be posted direct by member onto site, and moderators only will view e-mail details.

In the short term, I will remove e-mails from posts, and can be reterved from me if needed

I'm not sure either, but I would hate to miss some info on that basis though. I have a couple that want to remain anonymous.

On the whole, getting feedback on observations are working, I cannot see any reason why someone would require amenity anyway, but if you have direct contact, then post up info in your name.

Then they can comunicate via you Chris. The currant meathod of e-mails via the main BAOR Locations Site is dependant on one person passing them on, and needs to be updated.
This method seems to be working, with added remarks to main messages.

If your contributer PM'd you, then he must be a member of the forum already?

Once the back log has been posted, messages will slow down to on avaradge 1 to 4 a week.

well mike it looks like you got got what was obviously your intention from joining the site in the first place,you have brownnosed your way into a moderators position to ruin a good forum,jim was more than correct when he asked if it was censorship it is in fact dictatorship,every post on the forum now comes through you,[wow look how many times i have posted]and the posts in fact should appear on the hitory section of this site,GIVE US BACK OUR FORUM.

Censorship would be removing posts I disagreed with [mike]

Dandc!

I am not sure you understand or have I have got it wrong!

There is NO interference with the normal Forum as I see it.. These mails that are being posted for us to read, are actually, as far as I see, are emails sent to the site and not meant as direct Forum items.

Eg.. Someone wants to comment or add something to the BAOR Locations site wouldn't necessary post the comment on a Forum.

I suspect lots of people visit the site every day with no intention of joining, but do sometimes have info to pass on without wanting to join..

dandc, You have a very narrow minded view of what is going on. I have a small backlog of e-mails to post up, followed by a change on the BAOR-Locations site which will see contributers posting DIRECT. NO Post is being censored, they are posted as is. I offered to Phil in the absence of any other volunteer to look after the site, and how this is 'dictatorship' is beyond me. You are but one member, and are perfectly entitled to your view, however misguided and ill informed it is. The only person who mentioned 'Censorship' is you, Jim only wrote he did not understand. I have started 14 Threads from e-mails to the forum, anyone can post a thread or post without it coming via me, it just looks that way at the moment as it is these posts members are freely replying to.

Your forum is still very much active, and perhaps if you read all the posts, and only remark on those that interest you, you may in fact see that.

Oh, and by the way I like the other Site Editors (that is those members to take time to create and edit the pages on the BAOR Web Site) am a Adminstrater of this Forum, and keep it going, and try to attract new members to make it more interesting to all members, and not everyones tastes are the same. Post numbers and ranking mean nothing to me, as I could in fact promote myself to Field Marshal if I so wish...

Edited to add,

This is intended as a trail to see how we can handle new submisions in the future, and a number of problems have been highlighted, so it is being re-examined over this weekend anyway, before I return to work on Monday.

I will continue to feed in e-mails from the Main Site, but at only 2 a day, so as not to flood the 'New posts' list

Mike,

I was one of those who misunderstood you original intentions, I now understand what you are doing. This now puts emphasis on Phils original intent for the site to record the history of BAOR/BFG through facts and anicdotes, this aspect can now be done easily and be visible to all members. The forum has expanded and covers many different unrelated subjects which are both interesting and entertaining and so it should continue. Keep up the good work, we are dependent upon folks like youself to give your time administering the site, without volunteers the site would eventually collapse.

Soldier on mate.

So.....

With the new format, will new topics to the forum still appear rolling up in the "latest topics" window? I found this convenient to track new contributions/discussions rather than scrolling down through "general" or "locations" or what-have-you, as I did when I first signed on.

I always found the site easy to navigate and "move around in" and find the more general reminises (horrible spelling, sorry) of various individuals' time in Germany to be my area of interest and the reason I signed up to begin with. I also appreciate the site is a site for recording and maintaining the history of BAOR before it is lost forever....official history is one thing; "real" history -- the memories and discussions we've all had -- are the ones that are easily lost as we all age out and leave this mortal coil....some of sooner than others, sad to say! None of us are young'uns anymore and if we don't relay our memories and anecdotes, they will be lost. It is these which flesh out the official history.

I also want to take this opportunity to relay my personal thanks and appreciation to the site founders, admins, et al for their excellent and continuing hard work on behalf of this site. I realize its all volunteer and for that you have my warmest thanks!

Nothing has changed Stephen, The latest Threads/Posts still appear on the left in the order they are posted upto I think 10 posts, on a busy day some do indeed fall of the end of the list.

As I wrote above, I will slow down the posts of e-mails from the Main Site to 2 a day, and by the end of the month, posts may be direct from contributers who will be invited to join the forum, as many do not know it exsists.

If you look at the list of Sub-Forums (click on 'Index' under Navigation) - Those with un-read messages (by you) are marked with an Orange Tag Those messages with a Sub-Forum with a which dances if it is a hot (popular) post.

You do not need to rely on the scrolling list

Is it possible to stop any bickering and misunderstandings please. This is one of the best ex forces sites I have been on. No the BEST and it would be a shame to go the way of so many and end up with people falling out and the whole thing going down the pan.

Let's kiss and make up please!
