At the moment I'm just figuring out the technicalities of a private sub-forum. Members can have a 'primary' and 'secondary' membership group, we have 12 members with their secondary group set to 'designer', but only one primary -- that's you, Mike. I just wanted to check that the 'secondary' group can see it too -- since Ian has checked in, they obviously can. I've just tidied up the secondary group, leaving only Ian, Snowman and Tim.
Membership groups need to be set by admin, so any requests should come through me. I'll start switching our developer membership over. Who do we want here and who don't we want?
Technically, anyone who develops stuff for NZ could be invited, but I can't see any point in having Orbx people here, as there is no guarantee that it'll stay with developers.
Normal members shouldn't even be aware of the sub-forum. It is accessible to the designer and admin groups only. Beyond that, it can't be considered secure -- you never know when one of us might decide to jump ship and steal our stash:) So obviously nothing actionable should be posted! Think about down the track -- things, and membership, will have changed a lot in 5 years, so think before you post. However the idea behind a closed, private forum is to let people say what's on their mind, so short of abusing each other, anything goes.
