First - members - a number are registered who have never posted. If they don't post by January 6th, I will assume they no longer wish to be members and their membership will be deleted. (Yes, I know I said this earlier in the year, but somehow RL got in the way.)
Secondly - The Village Pump is now open to anyone to see without having to log in, even as a guest, as they had to previously. This is to make it easier for people to read the board, see what we're like, and decide if they wish to join.
Thirdly - there are some subjects which posters prefer not to discuss on an open forum. Therefore I am making the section Lynda's Resurgam Garden accessible only to registered members by using a password. It will not be open for general reading. Registered members who would like to post there will be given the password on request.
