Cowart's Common Room
In response to New Members

I am adding this in as a post as well because I do realise that some of you have some real concerns. . . .

Hi all just to put your minds at rest - every member that applies to join has to go through an interview process and then they are vetted by all the moderators after which we vote on whether we feel someone is suitable or not. This has been mentioned before, but I guess got lost in the archives. No-one can simply join - they ALL have to be vetted and then manually confirmed by me.

Violava has just been confirmed. In her blogspot bit she put none - which then of course linked to none.blogspot!!!! Which is indeed a rather odd blog and not hers.

So please be rest assured that on-one can just join on a whim to look at the private forum that just ISN'T possible. We are all working hard to make sure that the site is looked after and that our community is kept safe and in the event of someone wanting to cause mischief slipping through the net myself and the moderators have the power to remove them instantly and the site is constantly monitored - or at the very least frequently - plus I am available on email, or by phone, or mobile if there is the need to deal with a problem quickly and this includes when I am out - maybe not when I am asleep though.

The moderators and I have discussed removing some of those that have either never participated, or not for the last six months - it is on my list of things to do. I intend to write to all those involved first - rather than simply just remove them and then wait seven days - but obviously there is only so much I can do in a day.

I hope this puts everybody's mind at rest.

Good post WW - and thank you for all of your hard work which is much appreciated by us all.

I remember my vetting process by the Head Mistress. Very Happy

Cait's Avatar Thanks WW. The vetting/deleting system you suggest sounds a good one. We certainly don't want these mysterious 'lurkers'.

Camilla's Avatar Thank you so much Westerwitch, we are so lucky and fortunate to have you looking after us, it is comforting to know that the site does not have any mysterious people watching over us. Thank you for all your very hard work, you are a star.
