Private LCOC Forum is online

Postby Dan Szwarc » Mon Jun 26, 2006 8:53 pm

Doing what I feel is best for the LCOC and it's members, I have set up a private forum for members of the LCOC to post in that cannot be seen by others. I have set up a few rules required if you wish to access that forum:

1.) You must be a current member of the LCOC. This is verified through the Directory and membership of the LCOC. If you quit, your access will be revoked until you re-join.

2.) You must PM me for access or request using the "Join Group" function. I won't be giving access to all LCOC members automatically. That's too much work and I don't know who's a member because of the usernames. However, if you request access through this forum's Private Message system (the little PM icon), you will get it once verified. Don't bother posting in this thread to ask for access. I may not see it.

To use the "Join group" function, Click on this link (it will take you to your control panel under the usergroups tab, select "LCOC Members", then click on the submit button at the bottom. You can also request to join other groups this way.

3.) You must identify yourself when you post. I don't think that members should get to hide behind a nickname. A real name is required, but it can be a modified or shorted version of your name, as long as people can figure out who is posting. You have a few choices: You can also put your real name in your signature, change your username permanently, or simply post your name at the end of every post manually. This is probably the most important rule of this forum.

4.) You are responsible for what you say. Everything posted by you is on record.

There will be more rules coming. The LCOC has a moderator who reads what is posted there.

The private area is for LCOC discussion related to political operation, peeves, policies, and other dirty laundry that is not appropriate for non-members to hear. It contains privileged information only for club members.

Now that the LCOC has it's own forum, there is really no need for the Private LCOC forum here.

Stan, you should register at the LCOC Corner (link is in my sig).

Ditto.

Also, will the posts on the old Private forum be moved?

When we log on to TLF.net, will we see new posts?

I haven't changed anything.

The LCOC forum is pretty much dead as no one visits it. Club members have zero interest in using it. I haven't changed anything on this side so this is probably the best place to discuss.

The LCOC is going through some growing pains right now. Out with the old and in with the new and there's more going out than going in.

At least here, the discussion is moderated (by me) and there are a few members who are active here.

I looked at LCOC with the intention of joining but it seemed totally focused on originality and I wasn't sure the members would appreciate my car with its mods. Maybe if some modified cars were featured, people with cars like mine would want to join. Just a suggestion you might have heard before and maybe not what LCOC members want.

My advice is free and worth every penny. :smt003

Well, Jim, I can tell you that the club does prefer people keep their cars original because when one is judged, originality is the best way to separate those who made the effort to do research and find original parts compared to those who just did it any old way.

However, a modified car is better than no car at all. If people were not permitted to modify their cars (due to state or federal laws or whatever), our cars would NOT be repaired and would inevitably be destroyed and lost. So a modified car is still better than no car at all.
