Ok, a real topic to get the ball rolling. Right now this Google Group
is pretty well locked down, meaning only group members can view this
site, post messages, etc. I want to keep it this way until we get a
critical mass (half dozen?) of users liking the functionality.
But access is pretty tailorable. Ultimately if I roll this out to a
wider audience, do you want:
1) Only members to be able to view the site (message board + anything
else we throw up here)? Or anybody at all?
2) Members need to be invited to join the group? Or anybody at all can
add themselves to the group? (The first option means you get an email
like the one I sent out the other day.)
3) If we decide to upload other content to this site--say, race
calendars, training guides, etc.--should members be able to do this?
Or only "managers"? Right now, I'm the only manager.
4) Only members can post to the message board? Or anybody at all,
whether they've joined or not?
When I mention "site," "members," or "group," I'm only talking about
this Google Group. Not our regular CRC web site at www.chicorunningclub.org.
Not members of the actual club. And not the club itself.
