I think Steve summed it up pretty succinctly -

You do not have to go on either one, you have the choice.

Well actually you can search in the group for anything that is mentioned in posts, using the search window at the top of the page. wink

ive been a paid up member of this club for a while, Face book is free and full of dodgy advice, I agree about the club getting it's name about but it dilutes the need for being a paid up member, when something is free it has no value.

What have the Romans ever done for us situation

I could agree with you, but then we would both be wrong

Well BSADave you're right that formalising the FB link could be seen to erode the reason to be a paid-up member of the Club. But this was a balanced decision, because FB is where we'll get our next generation of Club members from. If they're after accurate and measured advice - then hopefully they'll gravitate to this Forum. If they want detailed information - then hopefully they'll join the Club, and get access to the 'members only' area.

Bear in mind that there are a great many people who are users of this Forum, who aren't Club members either. That too was a balanced decision when the website/Forum was first set up (ie to allow non-Club-members to register on this Forum) and those worldwide users are really valuable, welcome, and make a huge contribution to the lively activity on here. This website in general, and the Forum in particular, were set up and are maintained from Club funds - so the notion of folks getting 'owt for nowt' is well-established. We're providing something for the wider hobby, and not just a closed shop for paid-up Club members.

And many thanks for that, Bryan. As you say, many forum non-members provide / have provided plenty of useful info.
