How to: Chatroom Basics

@zande I don't have a problem with that. But, I have been "alarmed" that (some) members are adding their private phone numbers inside posts. I'd love for them to offer that information in a chat instead.

So come right out and say so !
Don't obfuscate by posting lessons in using private conversations -

@zande - That is where mine is also, I prefer people go to my website, link in my signature block and pick up my email addy....

Agree Zande.....

I do. Everytime I go back to a post and edit out the information, replacing it with "[private email/cell#]". I follow up by personally contacting that member via chat, and

I did. On the first line of the instructions: "...when forum members want to exchange personal information (email addressses, cellphone #s, etc.), or discuss something privately..."

What gave you the impression that there was a problem with anyone's signature?

Out of curiosity - how is Len ? Some of us are extremely worried that he hasn't been around for a few weeks. We've known him, personally, for years and would be glad if you could confirm he is at least acknowledging your communications even if he is not taking part in the Forum.

I don't like to intrude but will email his wife if you are not in contact with him, but you are our first port of call. He was not in the best of health of late, although fine when I stayed with them.

@zande I would encourage anyone to keep in touch with their "old friends". Maybe you could send it via a "chat"?

@elbrant You said you informed Redial of any alterations / edits you made to posts on the Forum.

So the first thought is - does he respond ?

I know them well enough - over years and visits to each other's houses / countries, I don't need to contact via the Forum. I hoped you would be able to confirm you were actually in contact and that he is OK

But, from your reply, it would seem you are not in touch with him ? You just inform him but don't get a response ?

Oh dear.

This is a matter of decorum. I do not believe that I should discuss personal/private information about any member publically. If you know this person, and are concerned about their well being, then by all means, please contact them.

You could just respond yes or no
No damage in that whatsoever. As it is we will assume the worst.
