NB post updated Contact list created and emailed out to those who have agreed to participate

Please let me know if you wish me to share your telephone number and or email privately with other forum members

Hi all,
I have amassed personal contact numbers for about 60 BO members over the years, and that info would be handy if we lost the f’rum altogether. I certainly hope that we don’t. However that info is private.

At the FTSR, there was a general conversation about the need to have access to individual’s contact details when arranging things etc, and how people could keep in touch, especially as we rely upon the forum so much, and how peeps had no alternate means of getting in contact with friend’s they’d made over the years.

I agreed to compile a list of names and contact details (tel no and emails) and those present agreed for their details to be shared with other BO members.

I will retain a 'master' list and will update it as and when necessary. I now open up this offer to other forum members so if you wish to share your contact details, I'll pop you on the list and will let you have a copy of the list for info on condition that I expect you have the courtesy not to share it further.

BTW I have no insider knowledge of how the f’rum is erm “progressing”, I just think that a backup list could be useful.

Ha ha!!! Yep - The beard is real..... going to be busy next month!!!!

As for the number - it is still valid but Flo (my wife) has that phone now. Probably a good idea to keep it so that you can phone her to tell her which hospital I am in next time I join you guys for a ride-out...... :ambulance:

I like the idea of a list and very much appreciate the motive for it. But I'm not sure that it needs to be published per se, or whether that would be either desireable or wise. Maybe it's best to think along the lines of an address book that can be shared on request, only among those whose details are within it and with consent for their details being shared explicit by virtue of their inclusion.

More than happy to add my details to an 'available to any members' list Brian - just a little wary of such being permanently posted up for all and sundry to see/use? AA:beer-toast1:

Yep agree with rob on this one Brian, When it comes to me and electronic gadgets I don't even trust my own washing machine to do the right thing these days o_O , So I have no probs with being on "Your List" but NOT public please :rolleyes:,

I even have trouble with the forum itself, I can't even re-sponsor as in the past each time I tried I get a message telling me my user name is already in use, (of course it is -- BY ME) And even if I did get further I am unable to make the payment, It seems the only way to pay is by Paypal or internet banking, and as I don't do either this puts me out of the running completely, So it seems I now have to be content to be reduced to just being a "Registered User" Meaning I can no longer do PMs etc :(

Hi all
There seems to be a general concern about publishing information on a forum, and I fully understand that, hence I now won't publish any contact details, at the very least until I (we ;)) come up with a secure solution that you are happy with.

For now and unless I there is any dissent in the ranks I will ...
  • Keep a master contact list myself and I'll happily to update it when notified
  • I will also only share it (by PM, email or text somehow) with those who are listed on it, ie those who have already given permission.

The forum handle of those on the contact list will be re shown on the first post of this thread which I'll edit accordingly so that it makes sense.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers Gents, we've now got some momentum. I currently have 20 on the list but I'm missing email addy's from Riz, RexB, Newfish Advancing Age and Pete/48.
I'll post the list out next week before I go on hols as there are bound to be some additions between now and then.

There's room for more (I have @60 forum members on my phone contact list) but I do need individual permission to share details so let me know if you wish to partake please.

Just to be clear. This is my attempt to support long established relationships forged through this incredible forum, fingers crossed, it won't be long before it's properly back up to it's heyday soon. Thank you all for your continued support.

Good idea Brian, as the site is not as secure as before crash day then I am reluctant to post my details on view. Had posted my phone number in the Help to Rob (curlynot) when he enquired about Zumo files but found afterwards that I was unable to edit my posts and remove my details. Details removed LeeJ

Have sent a request to admin but see that my details are still in my posts - that was requested a few weeks ago now so the new edit system is not giving any possible ways to remove personal data when it is given and admin are not helping with the problem.
Good idea though to keep some info for contacts.
