Re: Area Groups and Zoom

I'll offer another thought. There's no reason to fixate on Zoom. In addition to Zoom my own lockdown experience includes WhatsApp, Teams, Google Meet, Facebook Messenger, and FaceTime. Some of those are actually free for all. The only 'work' is to convince your fellow participants to use the same sy...

Re: Area Groups and Zoom

In addition to the cost, here's the volunteer work the society needs to have a 'society zoom account': We have about a dozen groups who use the licence for their meetings. They can have up to 100 members and there is in theory no time limitation on the meetings. In practice, as only one meeting can ...

Re: How do I create a sub-forum?

Paul Willis asked me nicely to change his Flymo748 username to ‘Paul Willis’, so I’ve also changed his on my workbench area to match.

Re: RE: Form tools

Note to Webmaster(s): Could this thread be incorporated into the other thread about form tools? It seems bonkers to have two seperate discussions about the same topic! I'm sure it can be when it's run its course. while it is live thats' trickier (it requires constantly moving/approving/adjusting) -...

Scalefour North 2020 Retrospective: A Flavour...

In an ordinary year, I would have the pleasure of preparing retrospectives for our shows. This year will be different. Scalefour North this year was presented on the same day as our virtual Scaleforum, as ' A Flavour of Scalefour North '. I've now placed that page in the more usual place on our webs...

They will be permanently hosted by our YouTube channel, and linked from the show website.

Re: How do I get to see the videos please?

I'm honestly unsure what our options are. The videos probably belong in one channel, but I'm not sure if YouTube supports such things.

Re: How do I get to see the videos please?

Most of the videos can be found directly on our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxPKgI4HoOrf_SsDKCIYQgw That's not well promoted in our other assets (website, etc) yet because it is (a) new, and (b) new. Starting there will mean you can use YouTube's library and other tools, if you...

Re: VIRTUAL SCALEFORUM & SCALEFOUR NORTH

That was the case with several of the DRAG demos. Some of them weren't available much, or at all, yesterday, and maybe I should have opened a topic on their presentations on their behalf. I don't know what response Lewes might have got if I hadn't done that. I think this is a good example of Forum ...

Re: VIRTUAL SCALEFORUM & SCALEFOUR NORTH

I do understand your frustration, but how do we minimise it? I’ll use this as a hook to jump in. Yesterday, our forum broke a number of records for us, and had a sustained contribution rate of a post more often than every two minutes. The number of people logged in, or accessing as a guest, were al...

Not just you. We may take some time to fix it properly - there is some software involved, and we need some time to sort that out.
