    There is a notice from Niall Fernie stating that the general forum has been temporarily closed due to some issues raised by posts in the general forum.
    Under the forums click on to Biodiversity, at the top is announcement on general forum problems

    Yeah but it seems like overkill closing a whole section over a few posts.
    Say what?

    Unhappy

    What's going on? I took the decision to fight my "org" cravings - as family were home from Edinburgh. Raced to me pooter as soon as and it says "Never"!! What did I do?

    Default General Forum Closure

    I am sorry that we have had to close the General Forum but a serious incident has occured relating to one of the people who look after the boards.
    Whilst it does relate to posting in the General section the problem is that it has spilled over into the real world and caused fear and anxiety to someone who has absolutely no control over what happens on here.

    The forum is as most of you know very busy these days and creates a huge amount of work in the form of emails, phone calls and pm's. Emails and pm's are one thing and can be left in a queue to be dealt with but it has to be remebered that no one is doing this full time and it may be days or even weeks before they can all be answered. We may from time to time decide not to reply in order to keep ahead of the flow.

    Niall posted a message about the closure although as the General Forum is closed it could not appear there - the programme does not allow for it. The word "Never" relates to the fact that nothing has been posted and is design feature we have no control over.

    We are still looking at what actions we may need to take over the longer term to deal with the current situation.

    Unfortunately it is likely that I will not divulge the full reasons behind the current problems. I am hoping we can get things sorted out by the end of today.

    I would also ask that everyone resists adding postings not relvant to the sections to get round the closure of the general section. I had considered keeping the whole board closed until we resolved all of the issues but decided to open most of it as I am aware how it is used by many people for much more than just general topics and is read by a great many more people than post into any of it.

    Thanks to everyone for your support

    Thumbs up Explanation....

    Thank you for the explanation Bill; if someone's life is affected so seriously then we will just carry on with what topics are available.

    I just hope it doesn't lead to needless and useless posts over what may have happened....

    Let's hope it all works out for the best for all concerned and we will just continue with the rest of the boards for now.

    I agree, at least with an explanation it stops"conspiracy theories".
    Hope that once rectified it doesnt become a topic for discussion and we end up back here again.
    All the best to all the .org and all connected with it.

    Bill, thanks for the explanation, and good luck with resolving the issues. Complain and bicker as we might, it's at times like this where we realise what a valuable resource the .org is, and how much fun its forum system really is.
    More power to your keyboard, and a heartfelt thankyou to all those who work away in the background.
    Three cheers for the .org.

    Thank you for the update, Bill. It is a shame that vindictiveness has risen to the fore again. I am sure that 99% of orgers are behind you and that they, like me, hope that the General forum will be up again soon. Perhaps everyone can show some restraint, as Bill has requested? Maybe we can PM each other and meet in the chat room... see you there.
