Hosting: Hosts Forum Area


Posted May 23, 2008, 9:08 pm
We have created some sub-Forums within the Hosts area of the Forum.

We hope that this will make it easier for people to locate prospective Hosts according to continent ( we'll break them down into countries at a later date, if necessary). 

The Hosts list was getting unruly, and needed some organisation:  mostly I've just moved Hosts' offers into the relevant continent sub-Forum (Europe, Asia etc) though we have deleted a few Hosts' offers.  The deleted ones were from Members who joined and then disappeared within a couple of days, or from Members who have 'absconded' with other people's TVs (there aren't many of these in the history of TVing - but we've deleted the ones who did this).

You might notice that some of the offers to Host are 'Locked'.  You'll recognise this by the padlock symbol.  This is so that no-one else can post into that thread, and it's due to the originator of the Thread being inactive.  We will try to review these on a regular basis, and keep on Locking those posts from inactive Members, or deleting ones which are very out-of-date.

If you are returning to the site and want your Topic unlocked, please contact us.

If you feel any other posts should be Locked or Deleted, please let us know (Isobel&Neil)

One thing we've noticed through doing this, is that there are actually quite a lot of Hosts about - but some offers to Host don't have one reply - and this would put off new Members.  Please don't discount any offer to Host just because someone is a Newbie. 

Hopefully the new sub-Forums will help everyone to see and respond to new posts more quickly, and will help with finding Hosts for your TVs.

Kind Regards

I saw it and it's much better! If you are looking for a particular country it's much easier to find now.
Good job!
