Thanks for the responses, folks. Yes, PM is ‘personal message’, and can be of great assistance, should one wish to discuss with just one person, say, the minutiae of a particular subject, and so avoiding being a bore to other members on the forum. I’d actually also prefer not to have to use F/book if there’s a choice – and instead use an internal AOC facility which merely draws upon the fact that AOC will have all members’ Email details. The TR Register, of which l’m also a member, uses this latter system – and it works very nicely. Best, Tim.
I assume PM. Is personal message ??? A sort of private email system ?? Let’s hope Ben and Tim can explain the system / advantages. I use the PM system on Facebook to contact a few of our club members. But like Ben I am not a great fan of Facebook.
If you want to offer members more of a “members only” benefit e.g. the technical forum then the website is better, but facebook is good for attracting new members possibly. I’m not a huge fan to be honest, if they website is good then there’s a risk of spreading ourselves too thin if we do both.
my email is craptiger at (hotmail) doc c0m if anyone needs it
Ben / Tim. Question for you. Would an update and link from the club Facebook account help ? I am trying to workout if using Facebook is helpful. I noted other clubs like BDC VSCC. Gilbern And Prescott are very active on Facebook as well as their websites. Any comments greatly appreciated. RON
