Hi All

And a happy holidays to everyone.

As the guy with the keys, I’ll just mention that a Rovernet Facebook presence is unlikely under the current plans, for a number of reasons.

But I also agree that Rovernet as a list serve operation is archaic and very limited. I should have a look at the restrictions Eric placed on posts, he did that many years ago and perhaps things can be loosened up in the short term.

What I’m working on, long term,  to bring Rovernet into the 21st century is a totally revamped Rover Car Club of Canada website with a functioning Rovernet forum. It would be a public forum, no Club membership required to join though there likely will be a Club only section. I’m also looking at adding photogalley section where forum members could post pictures.

This was actually supposed to be well underway at this point, but I’ve been delayed by trying to learn new website creation software, and the learning curve has been a bit steeper than I expected.

>> Another opinion from a long-time lurker on Rovernet -- I think a Facebook group would be a great addition to the Rovernet world. The ability to post photos and diagrams would be very helpful, and add to the value of the wonderful assistance with all things Rover. Being able to easily scroll through archives and reply to posts in one place would make information easier to access.
>> I do not spend much time on Facebook, but have found participation in a couple of closed groups to be a good way to share information with others. Facebook's privacy setting allow a group to be "public" (Anyone can join or be added or invited by a member), "Closed" (Anyone can ask to join or be added or invited by a member), or "secret" (Anyone can join, but they have to be added or invited by a member). Look at Facebook HELP, and read the sections about GROUPS and PRIVACY for more details on how this works.
>> Setting up a Facebook account and being a member of a group does not mean you must endure all of the nonsense publically posted on social media. You can adapt the settings so that you only interact with your group. It's not difficult at all!
