For the first time we will be expanding the user base for the eCommunity forums and enabling someone to join in the discussions simply by providing an email address.
We will maintain the integrity of the members-only environment (porting over the current discussions), but will redefine what we call a member. What I'm looking for is a general impression of what this will do for your interaction with each other and The Alliance as a whole.
Attached is a list of the Public and Member's Only forums and their descriptions. The Public forums will be readable by anyone, but will not be able to be commented on unless the individual is signed-in.
The members only forums will be readable only when someone has signed in, so in effect we are adjusting the qualifications for membership and thus opening the doors to enable a greater opportunity for broader impact.
So now comes the fun part. I've seeded the ground with a few questions:
1. Do you have any thoughts based on what you see on the preview? Does it make sense?
2. Do you have any questions about how this affects previous discussions and posts?
3. What are your thoughts on the new forums and descriptions?
4. What do you think you will see with a new and broader accessibility to the discussions?
I look forward to your thoughts! Comment here or Email me
