WSTA members only forum board
« on: December 24, 2011, 06:29:36 PM »
We now have a WSTA members only page on Hunting Washington Forums.
I envision this as a place for WSTA members to kick around ideas, post budget items and discuss strategy. In short a virtual Board of Directors meeting. Any member can get on and have their say.
You have to register on Hunting Washington.com and then go into your profile and request access to the WSTA members only page.
Profile/Modify Profile/Group Membership, WSTA Membership is at the bottom, right hand side is "Request Membership. Remember I need your name for membership verification. Put it in Reasons and I can see it.
If you are not a member of WSTA you will have to join to see the page. For now the easiest way is to go to http://watrappers.com/ and download the  Membership Application.

I have one request. I would like posters in the WSTA members only page to sign their posts. If you look at the bottom of my posts you will see my signature. If you don't want this to be seen in all your posts on Hunting Washington that is fine but try to remember to sign your posts in the members only page as you write them.

Also, please have some patience with me. At this time I am the only moderator and it is new to me. There may be a learning curve for me that will slow things up at first.
Bruce

Thanks Feanix,
That was some important stuff I should have had to begin with. I added it to my original post.

Also on the right hand side of the screen, there is a section that is "Member Links." Group Memberships is there as well, as a shortcut.

You're approved again. That means you have twice as much approval as anyone else. :IBCOOL: You will be able to see the board under agencys, events, organizations section.

Its the second "block" of forums. In between "contests, events..(etc)" and the "Washington for Wildlife" boards.

Bruce, how many people should know about this and be posting? I only count 9 different handles so far?

Al,
I am disapointed with the number but it may pick up. I put a plug for it in my column in The Trapper & Predator Caller Magazine. That goes to most members.
Also there may be more people sign up after trapping season. I'm going to make a point of getting people to sign up that are on the Board of Directors at our Spring Business meeting too.

I hope this is not screwing the forums up haveing so few people on the page. If it's a problem let me know.
Bruce

I doubt there are that many trappers on here or who are really interested.I think the laws and costs to trap might be a kick in the nuts to many. :dunno:

I wouldn't worry too much, give it some time to catch on. Like was said, season is still going, I think it's hard to try out something new when you are busy.

Thing is though our membership has been on the increase for several years. Probably close to 10% a year for the last three years.
