    Default New members-only forums

    Our two new members-only forums, primarily intended for the committee to be able to discuss its business openly in front of our membership, are now fully up and running. If you're a Member of GAGB, as opposed to solely being a Forum User, you should be able to see the new forums. If you can't then please post here or PM me. Thanks!

    Not seeing them, as I'm listed as a forum member (joined back in '06).

    Looking through the memberlist, only a handful of usernames are down as a GAGB Member. Hopefully Stuart is still chasing this?

    We are in the process of debating and trialling some changes to the way that embership of the GAGB is recorded. This will be debated in the members forum. I have corrected your membership status for you as you joined prior to the 3rd May 2008.

    Due to the number of inactive forum accounts it was decided to change the accounts that were definitely members (who had registered recently) and to do the rest as and when they return to the forum.

    I hope that you enjoy and contribute to the new members forum.

    Your membership thingy says that I'm a member of the GAGB but I don't see any 'members only' forum. Where should I be looking?

    On the main forum page, just above this General Geocaching topic, you should see two topics:

    Members' Chat
    Committee Discussions

    That's just traditional geocaching camo: you should be able to spot such hidden items by now

    You should be sorted now so that you can see and use them.

    Sorry about the delay, Lost in Space. Our IT Guru's are working their little cotton socks off, It'll be sorted very soon.
    I'm just going outside, and may be some time!

    Not wishing to cause a rumpus, but it would appear that quite a few "members", notably the longest standing, were not invited to vote at the last election.
    Given the low voting numbers what does this do to the validity of the last election?

    I didn't realise anybody had been invited to vote....
    Bill did a very good job of reminding people both here and on the Groundspeak forums at every stage in the process, and I would imagine that most people with an interest found out that way.....

    Members were asked to check their membership at the time of the election

    http://forums.gagb.co.uk/showpost.ph...4&postcount=49

    Using the form provided in the post above. Membership of the GAGB is annual and needs to be renewed.

    The form checks you membership, then presents you with

    "I wish to renew my annual membership of the GAGB:"

    I've just tested this using 'Lost in Space' and renewal of your membership was accepted and a notification e-mail sent to the e-mail address help as part of your forum membership.

    Cheers

    Stuart

    As a point of clarification, completion of the GAGB membership verification form

    http://www.gagb.co.uk/gagb/membership/

    Will query the database of GAGB members at or prior to 9am BST on 3rd May 2008.

    To continue your membership, and be granted access to the members only forums you need to check the

    "I wish to renew my annual membership of the GAGB:" box.

    At this point you will receive a confirmation e-mail, and details of your membership will be forwarded to the membership department, who will endevour to change your forums membership to reflect your (re)newed membership of the GAGB. This may however take some time , as we've typically got day jobs, or might not even be in the same timezone.

    We aprreciate that the current membership system has problems, and are working to resolve these in the near future, I can however say that it's not going to be an overnight fix.
