Joining the forum

It was sad the number of people i spoke to who have been trying to join the forum but have found it impossible to do--some have been trying for years.I don't know why it is so hard to be accepted but so easy for spam posts to appear.If we want to keep the forum and the meet alive the management of the forum needs improving.

The website gets a yearly makeover but the forum is a tad dated and neglected.  It’s very active, informative and has a loyal membership with some amazing contributers and newcomers should be welcomed.

As you say it's been like that for a few years now bph. I don't know where the request to join emails go but it's clear that most of them are ignored. 

I can only conclude that the powers that be don't really want the forum, preferring to use other social media channels instead.

Agree with BPH.  I don't understand why it should be problematic to allow people to join if their email address is that of someone who has bought a ticket to the festival.

We've got to know, and become friends with, quite a few people solely because of this forum. Of course now we keep in touch using other means but without the forum the initial contact wouldn't have happened. Social Media is great but I love the sense of community we have here, it's a shame other people can't get involved.

Hopefully when the plans for 2019 get into full swing in January (if not before) the forum will get a bit of attention and promotion so other people can join.

I'm in! Only took nine months.

Four million whitewalkers behind me too.

love it.

Teutonic, I hope this forum gives you fleeting seconds of real pleasure.

I'm on my third nom de plume on the forum over about 7 or 8 years. I was lucky; each time I forgot my details and needed to craete a new account it happened  easily and quickly.Fings aint what they used to be,obviously
