A question for Admin
« on: October 21, 2014, 05:12:53 PM »
Is it possible to have a general chat forum to keep this site ticking over in the 'winter service months' and also would maybe find out a little bit more about people we are chatting to on here.............

Maybe that's because there's already a chit-chat section on the forum, or do you mean live chat?

The Chit Chat forum is members only. If you are a VTSC member you need to modify your default group to Club Member in your profile. Then you'll see all the other forums.

Full access to the forum is one of the benefits of joining the VTSC. http://www.vulcantothesky.org/club.html

I don't particularly agree with the way it is, but that IS the way it is :)

Possibly. What you see may be different to what I do. The option is in Modify Profile->Account Settings.

Ive 'applied'.

Seems a bit odd that you have to give a reason, but as long as it keeps spammers away
