It seems like all or most of us with forums that include EU members or guests will have to comply with the GPDR.
I am unclear whether this means that we will have to delete all a members' posts on request and/oe provide them a means to take those posts elsewhere.
Does anyone know more about what this means for us and can shed some light here?
What does "Just A Forum" do that Facebook Group cannot?
Do not understand why anyone would invest in a forum alone in 2018.
Owning a forum and operating a successful growing community are totally different. Hobbies become lifestyles
The last 5 clients thats asked me to build them a forum, i told them to save the headache and money and go build a Facebook group.
I'm facing an issue where I've had several forum staff members (unpaid volunteers) for a long time. Some are reaching 4 years. It's a pretty close knit group. While we have had some communication issues here and there and have had to weed out some problem staff members over time, we all work pretty well together. We have a FB ongoing staff chat where burning platform issues are discussed, plus some general goofing off as a staff.
What I'm seeing is a shift toward some kind of "elite" mentality where they no longer recognize that members are the ones who keep us afloat. It doesn't matter if we like them personally or not. We do have problem members, but I do not see any value with rehashing old drama again and again and stirring the pot. When one mod has a personality conflict with a member, they can tend to drag the whole staff to their "side." I've had to step in a few times and remind them that ****-talking members is not only unprofessional and tacky, but that they are also...
I'll be retiring next year so will have plenty of time on my hands. Now with lots of time on my hands I would like to open up another site based on a long standing passion. I've never used Woltlab in a live environment; I've used their test drive model some time ago and it looks really cool; there have been updates to it since. So my question is, has anyone got a live running Woltlab site and can I have some insight as to how you feel about the software and where it's heading?
