Hello All,

I wanted to take a moment to see if I could get EVERY member of these forums to chime in for a roll call. Each forum member should have received an email directing them to this thread.

The intended purpose is to make sure everyone is able to access, log into and use the forums.

So please, simply take a second to post up that you’re alive and breathing!

If you are having problems, email us using the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of the forum page or directly to forum.admin@marrc.org so we can resolve your issues.

Hello:

Stephen Harris here, got the request for reply. I'm not a big forum / chat room / bookface / twiter kinda guy http://www.marrc.org/forum/images/icons/icon11.png, but I will be at Summit Point at the end of the month.

Good start, but we're still shy by about 80% of the member base, a couple stuck their head in but didn't post, the prez signed up (guessing he didn't remember he already had an account) so I have an email off to him.

Glad to see you! Like I said, this is mostly to make sure everyone can get in and working okay.

Well Kumi, I dunno if I can assist much in THOSE sorts of issues. So here's an amusing cat icon to look at. :cat:

I am here also. Sorry for the delay. Testing and some nitwit set the bathroom on fire. No wonder I am retiring:banghead:

Okay, so following up on this roll call exactly two weeks later. We have had less than 20% of the existing forum member list chime in. We've had a password recovery or two and a couple sign up when people on their own solicit forum sign up in other places (can't say enough how much I appreciate that).

Over all results, dismal! :(

I would really hope membership could realize the amount of input, exchange and interaction could happen between club members using these tools. I completely understand some people are just not down with the whole social media thing. But there sure are a lot more who show up on FaceTubes and other places without hesitation.

For those of you who showed up to the party, THANK YOU! :thanks:

For those who did not. :23_4_65:

;) I read the other post before this one ;) Thanks for checking in! GORECKI can we see what we can do about the email list??? I definitely got an email asking me to 'check in' over here. Maybe some folks emails got directed to Spam? Is there a way that we can tell? I know NOTHING about emailing lists or how they work.

Well, I was a little afraid people didn't get the message. IF people did get the message it's very possible it was marked as spam.

Our email issues are summarized in the following thread :
http://www.marrc.org/forum/showthread.php?110-Our-ISP-SiteGround.com-doesn-t-deserver-our-business!

Simply enough our hosting provider here is crap and email is just one of the reasons why we're moving. I've been working on that move for weeks now to the degree I actually have a fully functional (including forums and databases) copy of EVERYTHING running on a linux box here until we migrate to our new hosting provider FASTGUYS.NET, which I've also got to finish building. I will from there do everything possible to assure marrc.org mail is not treated as spam, but can not absolutely avoid it, so people should make marrc.org a trusted email source in what ever they use to read their mail.

Thank you for your prompt response Gorecki :). I am still nosing my way around other topics so I apologize for asking stuff if it has already been addressed :)

Another question. I notice that when I am not signed in I can only see a few categories. Maybe we should post something somewhere that there is more info if you register - I know that I would visit before and not log in and had no idea there was "more" to the forum.

Oh, pshaw...no sweat. Figured it would be easier to point than explain the details. :icon_cool:

Good observation and you're completely right! Simply been holding off on that. If you'd like to have the honor of creating a nice note of a thread here in the 'welcome center' (which is publically visible) that makes that point clear then we can pin it. That would be great!

I did not receive the email, but it is probably because the email went to an account to which i never sign in and for which i have probably forgotten the password.

We have an internet usage policy at work, so it's very difficult for me to check this regularly.
i can be reached quickly via treasurer@marrc.og or bylaws@marrc.org.
