Wow, lots of good website input.
As Dale said, this was only a demo to show board and the Branson rally attendees.
The board approved the website and the members seemed to buy into the concept very well
Now the fun begins. Everyone has their thoughts about what should be on the website. Some things can be implemented fairly easily, others may have to wait a while.
If you have been to the classified, you know that it is not implemented yet. There would be no reason to put a limit on the value.
Like it or not, there will be a members only section and that will have to include some sort of approval process. I will volunteer for that assignment. We will make it very simple to become a member and I will work with Dale on that process.
At the meeting, a straw vote indicated that the members want the forum to be in the members only section. There will be a contact for the general public to get in touch with one or more people, but we just don't want to have to spend a bunch of time moderating the forum with trash posts (rust comments?
) by non-members.
The member section will likely include the roster, and the bylaws in addition to the forum.
We need member input, but please understand that Dale is volunteering his valuable time(he does this for a living) and we have very limited resources.
We do need good how-to-do articles. If you will send them to me (jim at rvsafetysystems dot com) I will make sure they get on. Any digital format is acceptable.
We also have some members who have project pages like mine that will be put in the link area so others can find how some of us have done our crazy projects.
We need a good history section. I think Clifford have agreed to coordinate that effort. We talked about two levels of history. The first is the company and the second is the club. Bill Pratt volunteered to help with the club history.
Gary LaBombard (who no longer posts on this board
) has a great set of CDs that he sells with very detailed information on how to repair Eagle rust (and other good information). We somehow need to get a strong link to his product.
So, keep the ideas comming, but be patient.
Bob, my calendar show Quatzsite to be Jan 15-17
You can send your suggestions to me (jim at rvsafetysystem dot com) if you don't want to post them here.
BTW, I just mailed Dale a DVD with the photos of the Branson rally that Wayne took. If others have photos from the rally, please let me know and we will find a way to get them to Dale.
