child board

Oh!!! So when you(bubba) set up the "Shit heap" child board, you were referring to the location of the board, not the mindset of the unwilling contributors!

While we're on , how about a 'lights/lamps' child board under equipment.  I'm sure it'd be beneficial to have all lamp/led/lighting threads in one place.

That's a bright idea!   :thumbsup:

our bca membership man says there is no access code on our white card. do we just have the wrong sort of membership?

it might get used more if more club cavers knew about it and knew how to log on

I can't answer this without knowing which club it is. In short, if your club has not elected to pay for the optional BCRA membership, then you will not have the access codes.

You can email me at the BCA membership address if you want me to check further.

Sorry, I meant to add that if a club has elected to also join BCRA, then it should be the club that advertises the access to on-line Cave and Karst Science to it's members.

Thanks for your efforts Bubba - I've already found a reason to use the new science area.

The new section needs a tagline (as do several other boards). How about

"Long sentences and multisyllabic words"

thats far too succinct and not enough multisyllabic, tortuous, incomprehensible linguistics. nor is there sufficient wordage to uphold the correct, third person, rigid grammatical structure required for such close proximity to academia.
