As part of our ongoing commitment to provide a high level of service for all of our members, we have been re-organising our groups. As a result of this, we have made the decision to delete all inactive groups. We class a group as being inactive if there has been no activity relevant to the groups’ topic for a period of 90 days or more. (Please note that pictures and ‘hello’ and ‘thank you’ comments do not constitute relevant group activity).
We view our groups as an extension of our family, so we don’t take any pleasure in having to remove abandoned or inactive groups. However, we do not see the point in leaving groups on our site that are not being updated with relevant discussions on a regular basis. We believe that all of our groups should have fresh content posted for the group members to interact with at least twice every month. Unfortunately we have seen a pattern where people open groups and either no content is placed within the group, or the group creator puts information in the group initially, and then simply abandons the group.
Where possible, we will be asking members of these abandoned or inactive groups if anyone wishes to take over the group before we decide to delete it. Many people find managing a group to be a fulfilling and worthwhile experience, and we are hoping that more of our members will consider taking on an abandoned or inactive group and breathing fresh life into it. However, if no-one steps forward to manage these abandoned or inactive groups then a deletion date will be scheduled and all of the group members informed. Please only step forward to manage a group if you can commit to being active within the group and you are able to post a minimum of 2 fresh discussions each month. Otherwise we will re-schedule the group for deletion at a later date.
You will notice that we are also merging groups that are about the same topic. We are doing this as we want to make it as easy as possible for all of you to not only find all of the information that we have about a topic, but also so that members can get to know others who share the same interests.
For those of you who have set up groups that simply provide links to other websites – beware! We are currently deleting all groups that do this, as our groups are not for that purpose. Our groups are here to provide relevant support and information for our members, and a place for our members to interact with others who are interested in the same topics. If you are looking for a way to advertise another website, please look under the tab labelled ‘Advertise’ at the top of any page on our site. The information on how to advertise with us is located there. Our rates are extremely reasonable and we welcome the opportunity for you to advertise with us, in the appropriate manner.
We appreciate your support and understanding as we continue to improve our service to all of you.
