Temporary Board for mining chat / notices / updates?
« on: January 27, 2021, 08:35:23 pm »
Hi Peeps,
Was thinking if AN does go offline, how would you feel about a temporary board until it can return for mining news, updates, national meets etc? Input for NAMHO and PDMHS amongst others...
Would like to know Simon is OK with it, and would need mining peeps this end to look after it (Roy Fellows, AR, Pete Knight, Pwhole, etc...)
Of course Pegasus and Badlad would need to be OK with it as well?
Thoughts?

I think this would be a good idea but must be careful not to tread on anyone's toes. It is also important that the data, info, old pics etc are not lost. such a great site and it will be a shame when it shuts down.

We'd be very happy to help out if we can and are open to suggestions.  Would like to see the AN community kept together.  Don't want to be treading on AN's toes though and really hope Simon can sort out his problems with the site.  Perhaps we could offer a mining section or two on a temporary basis that can be copied back to AN once it is operational again.  Happy again to have mining folk moderate it.  You guys have a think.

Jane, you wonderful fantastic lady!
I am going to contact Simon Lowe with your very kind offer and see if he can be induced to put a link to this thread on AN front page.

I'll be back.

Yes, Simon will put the link to this thread on the front page. Again thanks a lot. If there is anything I can do for UKC or its members, I will try. I and many others wont do facebook.

Hi Roy.

Rather than a link to this thread it would be better to have a whole dedicated board for mining.  We could have 'mining chat' alongside caving chat for instance.  That way you can start as many threads as people want on any mine topic and we should be able to transfer the lot back to AN in the future.  If anyone wants more boards we could even create a whole section, but perhaps see how it goes first.

We should have a mining moderator for the 'mining chat' board.  Would you be prepared to do that, or someone else from the community?

Cheers
Tim

Excellent idea; we mining types are all feeling a bit lost at the moment.

You are being extremely kind and I will go for all, but a couple of things.

1/ I will need to keep Simon Lowe up to date with new link from AN front page
2/ Having me as a mod on the new mining board. I am an existing mod on AN and you need to be aware of package you are getting. It would be AN rules, no "F" words, politics, climate, Trump, vegan nationalism or anything like that. Apart from continuation as is, or as were so to speak, there is the possibility of a future migration. Planning ahead.

The benefit of being on UKC is that you could just shunt anything non-mining onto another part of the forum :)

Yep, dump anything 'off-topic' into Idle Chat, and let them deal with it!!
