You made me do it........

So....I wasn't going to say anything...I was going to keep my mouth shut....but NOPE can't help myself....

PEOPLE GET OVER IT!!!

Get your panties out of a bunch.

If you don't like the private forum and you don't have an interest in your local WBCCI chapter or region don't subscribe to this microcosm of the forum.

This group/community is made up of all different temperaments, talents and convictions we won't all agree on all issues. Except I hope we can agree the greater good of this community is to advance the cause.......

last time I checked it's AIRSTREAMING- you know camping?

so if the Private forum allows "members" to communicate more effectively
so mote it be.

My experience as a FCU prospective charter member has been very good. There are no secret hand shakes needed... it is just one more tool for the group to communicate in this forum....of over 15,000 members.

Peace, good love, good nature and safe travels.
Out,

lol

I didn't want to do it, I didn't want to do it. LOL

My first impression was that the beginning post was an announcement of a feature rather than opening up a dialogue for discussion, but hey I can appreciate relating my position whether it is solicited or not. Say like now.

I felt the forum owner decided to be generous and was offering something he decided had merit and validity. It's like "Don't look a gift horse in the mouth." It isn't our decision or jurisdiction and it was a nice thing and instead Andy gets flack for it.

About the only issue I wondered about was why it had to be private as different than other subforums, but then perhaps it is as a special forum as administrators have and not open to the public like the child boards.

Reminds me of elementary school on report card day. Comparing our grades I saw that my "neighbor" got a better grade in deportment than I. I had a problem with talking and being disruptive--go figure. As I approached the teacher with my concern, long story short instead of giving me the same higher mark she called my neighbor that I would be talking with and lowered that grade.

The point is, be careful with your concerns of your own agendas that you don't take something away that has been given to others.

Ford Motor Company probably had the same impression when they announced the new Edsel in 1957. They thought it was going to be a welcome addition to their product line.
When a company or organization announces a sweeping change that might affect all of their members or patrons, it is unrealistic not to expect some degree of dissent.
When I first read this forums announcement, my first concern was that I might be seeing more of what I saw four times yesterday when I tried to log in:

This is the one I got a few days ago. But surely it cannot be the result of the new WBCCI unit bandwidth. I felt the premium accounts were a voluntary contribution and not a payment per se.

Andy has been moving stuff off the server. We are getting big, the photos section in particular. Look at it as an opppertunity to step away from the keyboard. I have to admit that on sunday (last) when we were breifly turned off, I was packing for our next rally between trips to the laptop to see if the forums as back on line. Thinking that maybe I need a 12 step program now....

The connection problem had more to do with AndyR doing maintenance on the servers, than the very minimal threads taking place in the few private forums that are set up. These intermitant downtimes have been happening for years and will continue to happen from time to time as he improves the systems. Although bandwidth is a limited resource, I have no doubt we have more than enough that the WBCCI unit forums are not making even the slightest dent in the performance of the main forums.

Just my personal opinion.

Steph is right, the impact of the Private Forums is nil. There are only 4 Private Forums with a grand total of 17 threads...and even those are not all active.

NEU Private Forums - opened since 10/18 currently has 10 threads and 142 posts. Tiny drop in the bucket in regards to traffic on the "regular" forums.

That being said the Private forum has already increased communications between members of the NEU. We are being very careful to only discuss internal club issues, everything else is posted on the public forums. The NEU sends a big THANK YOU to Andy and Company.

Fact is the NEU was going to have a private forum. Just happens it's connected to this system. Personally, I was against it being done this way but so be it. Saved alot of people alot of work. I don't like it not being under NEU ownership and control. But I'm not the one who would have been doing the work. Works for me..

Except, of course, for those who use it...as Michelle pointed out. My intention was to point out it has little impact on the forums overall....not whether it is a worthwhile feature or not.
