Lightbulb Private forums

I think there is a need for some private forums for some members who would like to discuss issues related to particular projects/sites or common problems they are facing.

I can offer a private forum where only selected members have access, obviously will need a member to moderate each forum and vet any memberships etc. but the facility is available if required.

These forums will be closed and only visible to selected members.

If anyone needs a private forum setup, please send me a PM with details and I will look into each request.

Re: Private forums

I think this is an excellent idea Mushtaq, as when a thread is started, it can and does sometimes happen when others don't see the sensitivity of that members feelings, and some curt replies do get posted, Some for e.g when a development problem has been highlighted, or questions regarding relationships go awry, etc;

Re: Private forums

Shouldn't everyone be privy to the pitfalls, problems or wrongdoings of certain complexes? I thought that's what a forum is for. Why hide the true going-ons from the unsuspecting? I think that's wrong.

Besides, if people want to ask another member something in private they only have to PM them.

I also think having a private forum which only certain members can view will store up resentment, mistrust, and cause conflict.

Bad move in my opinion.

Re: Private forums

Personally I see both sides on this. I can see where some might feel left out and such. The whole purpose of a forum is public discussion as i see it. On the other hand, wanting a more private discussion also makes sense. I do think that this can be accomplished outside the forum however. I mean, if you are going to go to the whole effort of coordinating a private forum why don't you just do an email group? The dowantwnside of that is maybe you don't want everyone to have your private email which i also undertand.

Am I ambivalent enough?

I agree i thought the whole point of the TLF was to get full responce for a problem aired seems no point in having a forum otherwise just chat on facebook

Re: Private forums

I have seen this use and basically a heading is made for say "Rosy Sun sitesi" and people who actually own property there can apply to join this particular forum. The members then have a chance to exchange and discuss information about this site, whether it be flooding, site fees, pool opening times or anything they choose.

On the one hand it gives the chance to interact easily and not open threads that are probably quite boring for anyone else but I accept that some information could be lost, which could be of interest to others. The members can always open a topic for everyone else to see if they wish.

If a site did have problems with something like flooding or TAPUs for example, members may wish to keep this to themselves but anyone looking for property would hopefully find this information out for themselves when doing their homework.

These things only work if there are enough members to form a group, I was once in a group of 1 or 2 I think and e-mail was the best option for us - and still is .
