Planning Forum Rallies

When planning a new Airstream Forums Rally, the organizer would of course post the time, place & other details in the Forums to encourage others to attend.

Seems like it would also be helpful to PM those in the rally area based on the Members map display.

Wonder why so few members have placed themselves on the map?

Whenever we posted our Baja Excursions, we had people interested in no time. Many cancelled, but we always had a fun group of curious travellers.
Key is to keep the thread alive for a while, so infrequent visitors can see it.
What map? Does it work with a mac interface? Many such things are PC exclusive.

Hi - You could also find the members in your area by doing an advanced search of the Members List. Click on "Members List", then "Search Members", then "Advanced Search" and enter your state or other criteria.

I just tried that for Georgia and the first page was all Georgia members, but the second page and those that followed were just an alphabetical list of all members from all states. I know the one page wasn't all of the Georgia members (just the numbers and A's and B's) because I didn't show up. When I searched just for me, I showed up with Georgia listed as my state. How do you get a full list of just the one state? Maybe this is a moderator question?

Do the sort... start at the last page and work forward - it's a forums bug.

That's where it gets a little tricky - the advanced search will default to ascending order (near the bottom of the advanced search page), and when I did that, I had the same result as you did. Change that to "descending order" and you will be able to scroll through the pages all in one state.

Another option would be to increase the number of results displayed on one screen - looks like the default is 50, but you could make that any number and have all of the results show up on one page.

Still not working. I even tried requesting 5000 results per page. Then I only got up through the J's.

Not sure what kind of sort you mean, Janet. Do you mean the sort by state? When I go to the last page I get the Z's of the entire list.

Hi Uwe,
From the main page, look at the Quick Links in the left column. The Members Map is the 3rd item in the list.

Okay, there is a bug...but here's a work around.
Click on "Members List"
Click on "Search Members" in the bule bar below the abc's & page #'s
Click on "Advanced Search"
Pick your state from the drop down
Select "Post Count" in the "Order Results By: area in the "Options" box towards the bottom
Select "Descending Order" in the box next to it.
Select "100" (maximum allowed)
Click "Select Now"

This will sort the folks from Georgia with the most posts first and the folks that will be cut off are "0's". I would imagine, that folks who have never posted wouldn't be as interested in coming to a forum rally as someone who has.

Hope this helps!

Keep in mind, there are rules in the Forum Policy that state what the membership database may and may not be used for. You may want to refresh your memory before sending out a bunch of emails...and upset some folks!

Shari,
Based on this policy:
Quote:
Most importantly, our user base, is not a resource to be "mined" by individuals, groups, or businesses, for profit or not for profit.

May I, or may I not, "mine" our user data base to send emails to prospective participants in a "new" New Mexico WBCCI Unit?

I need a reading on this before I screw up. Thanks!

I personally don't have a problem with that specific use...however some would. You would be better off to post a new thread and ask folks to contact you via email instead of sending unsolicited emails (aka spam) and pi$$ing people off. I wouldn't wanna make a bad first impression...they may not want to join your new Unit if they are mad at you...right?!

Shari

Mate, I got it to work just like Mel described and came up with 215 members in Georgia. Use the descending order and set to 500 members.
