Re: Suggestions for group administration

I support this change Farhan, I think it's a good idea. I also welcome the
OM Arv on board as moderator!

In case members are worried: I believe that non-members who are reading the
postings cannot view email addresses. Therefore making this change should
not put posting members at risk of spam.

My BIX20 still languishes in a state of 95% completion; but it competes with
many other radio projects, and almost non-existent radio hobby time right
now :-(

Subject: [BITX20] Suggestions for group administration

i have a couple of suggestions for administeration of this group. at the
moment, hans (the silent lurker, the original bitx procastinator,
the real-soon-now soldering iron maniac) and i 'manage' the group. our
work: we okay every membership application. that apart, there are no
resitrctions on postings, file uploads etc.

however, our group policy is that casual surfers cannot see what we are
upto unless they become members. i am proposing that we allow 'read-only'
access to non-members. the good part is that we will be able to attract
many more builders who land up on our site while surfing. the bad part
will be that many may choose not to be members as they can get information
to get byfrom the group without signing up, so we will lose count of how
many eye-balls we have (as if that matters).

i also propose to add arv as an admin of the group (arv, i know, i didnt
ask your permission on this one. hehe).
