Members Only Forum


Recommended Posts

I figure since my life is in such disarray why not add some more stress to it and see just what I am made of. We have discussed ad nauseum creating a Members Only Forum and even tested one out not long ago, It was canned since some people saw it as an opportunity to spew political venom and misogynistic and borderline pornographic content. I can't let this go because I have some stuff I'd like to share/discuss with members away from the public eye. Below are some Guidelines to a Private Members Only Forum I put together. Please read and what do you all think?

STILL A POLITICS FREE ZONE / STILL A POLITICS FREE ZONE

All Board Guidelines apply to this Forum.

Why a Forum just for registered Members?

Public/Global or "Open" Bulletin Boards are becoming rarer these days with security issues and spam registrations and trolls. There is subject matter and photos that members don't wish to post on a Board/Forum that is viewed by virtually anyone with internet access. This Forum is an attempt at addressing those issues for those wishing to participate on a Discussion Forum away from the public eye.

THIS IS A MEMBERS ONLY FORUM but is not an excuse to be trollish or overly lewd and lascivious or combative. Even in the context of a Private Forum, Topics and Replies that might compromise the integrity and security of the UJ site/BB, its members, me and my family, Moderators, the UJ brand and the sponsors that choose to advertise and support this site/BB may need to be moderated.

Topics and photos can be posted here that members feel are of a more private nature only to be shared/viewed/participated in by the authorized UJ board membership. I go to great lengths to weed out spam registrants and trolls and people that just want to muck things up so the registered and authorized members are a pretty secure group.

For instance a member may have had some medical issues that may be of interest and maybe even help other members but are of too personal a nature to share on a public board/forum. Maybe someone is reluctant to post photos of family members or children on the public forums but would be more comfortable on a Members only forum. Maybe some people are reluctant to indicate where they hunt for all the world to see. Maybe there is a Topic best not viewed by anti-hunting organizations AND YES THIS BOARD IS MONITORED and has been targeted and linked to in the past.

This Forum does not show up on the main board page except for the Members Group, Contributing Member Group, Administrator and Moderators and can only be viewed and participated in by those Groups. No lurkers or non-registered guests are allowed access. *Please do not give out Log In info to non-registered people-that will be detected.

Despite that, I'm in favor of your proposal and also of complying with the general T's & C's of the Board.  However, I'm not really a big fan of exclusionary dialogue since I enjoy many of the posts by non-contributing members.  Would like to see you try it again within the boundaries you'd like to set.  

Brad, speaking of "Boards", have you ever given thought to having something akin to a Board of Editors/Regents to share your load?  I know some of the folks in here have editorial rights and privilieges but have you considered expanding that role to others?  Am not volunteering due to my limited website skills, but perhaps there may be others who would appreciate that role and who could help out.  You and your supporting cast today could probably use a break.        

It'sgreat to see that you continue to make this site better all the time and for that, many thanks!

*****Guilt trip warning*****don't read past here if you are easily offended****

If you are a regular reader/poster on the UJ and are not contributing time or $$$ at any level to the UJ, and/or, if you ever received anything of value herein and have not reciprocated in kind, what the heck is going on with you?  Am sure the UJ could use a little help in many ways.  Please step up if you find you enjoy it here -- for the price of a fast food lunch, you could help the UJ and give your arteries a break.

****end of guilt trip****

I looked in on the last one once.  I'm all for poking fun and slinging barbs but thinking about a lot of what I saw the last go round the term "venemous a$$holery" popped into my head.  

I couldn't stand the heat so I stayed out of the kitchen....

I’d favor this IF we could maintain the friendly, non-abusive atmosphere that exists (mostly) here.  As with the box bird discussion, it would be nice to have a place to discuss some things of interest to upland hunters/shooters that could be misinterpreted or used as fodder by others who are not a part of our community.  On the other hand, I seem to recall that it unfortunately began to fall into the repetitive political ranting and personal attack mode that has caused me to stop participating in other boards.

Obvioulsy, this would be more work for you, Brad – maybe a whole lot more work.  Your call.

For the challenged, or as Timmy would say, "short bus folks", will the new private forum come with a secret decoder, to figure out the new age code?

On paper it sounds good.

Of course folks will try to turn it into a crapfest like last time.

If you feel like doing battle with it until it settles down...go for it.

I have no problem with it, but I would suggest that you keep a strict 2 syllable limit. Words like "misogynistic" are completely unnecessary. It sounds like something only a woman would understand anyway.

Besides I have to get up out of my seat to find the dictionary, and someone has removed it from it's place. (Very annoying!)
