You could scan your passport - having blanked out the passport number

How do you get to matches outside Yorkshire without one?

I think we should be totally transparent and accountable for posts. Therefore Id like to see this being made a pre requisite for joining or carrying on as a member



Absolutely 100% agree with this

I’m not sure these boards have the same issues as other platforms.

If you start taking names, dates of births and addresses (ultimately only accountable if you know where you live) and ID you would need to register with the ICO and have ongoing GDPR issues. Extra costs, admin and liability ultimately.

How so? Email addresses don't have to contain names. Mine doesn't.
However, my name has always been on my profile here.

As a moderator you do get access to ip addresses, which are traceable if a crime is committed same with email, they can be traced back to the originator, people assume they are invisible on line, little do they know.

And what if you haven't got a scanner?

Seriously if you are only going to allow people to post who have scanned their passports you aren't going to have many posters!

Before complicating the issue with such matters as proper names, etc can’t we wait to start with until Richard can give us a rough idea of the overall costs involved. Until we know that I think we are all “talking blind”

Happy to contribute. As for requiring real names you would have to be aware of the Data Protection Act in how they are used in public.

I have no issue with contributing, but what if we could find a single sponsor?

I am happy to share my details, but actually think the forum works great exactly as it is (once some rugby is actually being played) - I think there are times when 'whistle blowers' or those with inside information need somewhere to share with protection of anonymity.  I also enjoy the banter (generally) which may also be lost/reduced.

I will be sad if a new board means my joining date and "World cup winner" status is lost :-(

Hope everyone is well!

Maybe the RFU will fund the running of all this going forward? Or, failing that, maybe World Rugby will?

Sorry everyone for lack of updates. 

I can report we are moving the board to a new host asap.  You will probably see some outage at some point. 

I will be asking for a small contribution - we are looking at less than £100 intiially if everything goes to plan, then half that going forward. 

Thank you for your continued support.

That sounds good. You’d hope that regular users would be prepared to chuck in a fiver or tenner & that such contributions would raise a couple of hundred quid to finance the cost of running the board for a couple of years…Thumbs Up

I said I would stick my hand in my pocket - and so did a few others.

Probably not worth setting up a funding page, but if Richard PM's me the account details and how much he wants, I will send some over.
