LOL, I'd like to make a suggestion on mobiltec's behalf. Under our screen names there is a status title based on number of posts. I'm proud to say mine is "FULL MEMBER" and I will have to limit my posts to keep it that way. I sure don't want to be tagged like mobiltec as an "ELDER MEMBER"! Maybe change to senior member, silver member, wise member, or honored member.
(sorry, just joking, I couldn't resist LOL)
Thankx again Vikx for starting this forum when our beloved Vintage Shasta forum was melting down.
Mobil is now an LEADING member. LOL Changed that yesterday. I don't want to be an Elder anything either....
Thanks Soup, that's the reason for this thread. We want to keep VTT friendly and feeling like home. That's the reason we're asking for suggestions.

On the map, it could still be a google map that folks could view just as we had, the key thing someone would have to commit to being the editor --much as with the vin data base. folks would pm the individual the information and then it would get added/updated. The info would still be visible to anyone on going on the site, so folks wold have to manage/curate their privacy and of course it woudl be voluntary. I just don't have the time to do it....but maybe someone who is interested in that information --you know what they say about suggestions and volunteering being the same thing...
And maybe the privacy issue could get taken care of with a members only area...do we have that capacity? not sure what else we'd put there.
So do we have a volunteer to manage a map and keep it private?
The member's only area is "Talk about Anything" at the bottom of the page. Our membership isn't restricted, so anyone can join and see that section. We're trying to keep the restrictions as few as possible, so that new members feel welcome.
Thank you Barbara! We will have to research this. The map would be private and a member would have to PM you in order to be pinned. You would be the only one who could edit the map. Gonekayaking might be willing to give you some pointers.
There is a restricted members only section (Talk about Anything) but it is viewable by anyone who joins and ANYONE can join...
