Welcome & Approach

Postby admin » Sun Sep 27, 2015 7:27 pm

This forum has been set up at the request of some of the ADUK membership with the announcement that ADUK had been sold
The aim is to 'move meeting room', but without specific plans to make big changes.

The 'rules' here are minimal - respect for others in what is posted being the main one.

Similar moderators are in existence and as before will move with stealth behind the scenes discerning what needs to be done - moderation will be light-handed.

Any questions - do contact the team - and if there are teething problems etc. apologies in advance!

Oh, I'm sure it'll pick up. Thought I'd use my normal alter-ego here rather than name based.

I am sure it will - we will need to seed topics for a bit no doubt, but if every week we pick a new topic from the 'controversial list' I am sure that it will be buzzing in no time at all :)

changes in names - now that will really confuse people :D

Well well, Brown. Seen your name on other fora, never knew who the real Brown was :) Welcome!

Hi Nick,

Yes, 'tis me. I don't post much on the other place these days so it seems appropriate to dust off the moniker. Let's hope a few more turn up or it's going to be very lonely.

I'm working on that with AK. Any ideas for attracting members welcome.

Peek-a-boo!! Suppose we stay tuned in to t'other place as well until we see what develops there. Just followed Gareth's link to Brake's list of "supporters" and am horrified to find the IAM listed there. Considering my position. At the very least will be composing a rocket aimed at Chiswick as soon as I have gathered my thoughts.

Btw., very much appreciate that the format here closely resembles the format "over there". Makes life much easier for those of us who, in the words of Woody Allen, are "at two" with Information Technology!!

I suppose the best at present is to contact all those who have expressed dissatisfaction with the acquisition of ADUK and let them know that an alternative exists. I suspect that's already in hand though.

Do you think splitting traffic between here and ADUK is likely to result in a drop in overall traffic (as neither end up with critical volume)?
