"STOP PRESS" - The Forum is now up and running
Last night my web designer Jan came round and set up the brand new "Cheating The Ferryman Forum". This can be found on its own page on my website -
It is my intention to have this as a more question and answer/ discussion type site than this one. It will also be a good deal less intimate. Indeed I am keen to keep the friendly feel of this site whereas the Forum will be exactly that... a forum.
With us reaching our limit on numbers here I will, as a matter of course, point any new itladians to the Forum as a first port of call.
In order to give it the kick start it needs it would be great if you all registered and placed a few of your favourite issues, comments or ideas on it. I am hoping that this will then convert the ever-increasing viewers to the website into regulars and Forum members.
Karl, Ed and I met up last Friday to discuss exactly how the two sites will work together. Clearly we need to observe how things work out over the next few weeks but one thing that I will be wanting to do is involve the "inner circle" of regulars on this site in a more dynamic way. In fact I need a moderator for each of the categories. Indeed I am also open to suggestions for new categories from regular bloggers ... once they are willing to act as the moderator on that new category.
In due course I may decide to do is make this site private and 'member only'. New people will initially only be given access to the Forum but if they show that they are active contributors with something valid to contribute then they can be "upgraded" to full itladian - what do you think?
