We’re pleased to announce our new Clan Forums. They can be found in the Members Area section and will not be accessible to non-members. Instructions can be found on the Members Area page. Association Membership Secretary Peter Clareburt states “Our Facebook group is very active, but there are many members not using social media, so this is an ideal way to replicate FB’s interaction”
The forums all have the ability of uploading images, movies and even sound files as well as text, so we encourage all members to use this medium. We just require you to keep it relevant!
The security measures are unfortunately necessary due to the nature of forums and the malicious “bots” that trawl these plugins. Long time FB contributor and Forum Moderator, David Hume explained “[Having restrictions] will avoid a lot of spamming, and trolls just waiting to create mischief. Example, entries to the Clan McIntosh genealogy forum were suspended due to spam.” Other Clans don’t have forums for this reason.
If you are not yet a member, please decide to join and visit the Membership page.
See you on there!
