Ya know for all the talk about not enough females interested in sailing, we are running 50/50 at our little singles group - cool

I got the courage to click on it, I was afraid it would take me to some.. well I wasn't sure where it would take me. How did ya do that? Share your trade secrets please.

1) Simply write the Tag line of your choice: Singlehanded Sailor seeks a helping hand - JOIN NOW!

2) Format as you want: Singlehanded Sailor seeks a helping hand - JOIN NOW!

3) Now the Clever bit

Highlight the tag line text and then click on the INSERT LINK function and follow the instructions (copy and paste the link you want to use)

4) and voila:

Singlehanded Sailor seeks a helping hand - JOIN NOW!

Thanks for the step by step instructions. I'd call you a genius but don't want to ruin your bad boy image.

Now hold on there, I want to have the "bad boy" image

Getting back to maxing this new forum's effectiveness, and given that Janet H and maybe even DOJ (aka "Badboy") appear to be "internet savvy"...

Perhaps one of them could advise how you can increase the likelihood of when someone does a Google search containing certain words, a link appears in the subsequent Google findings. I know it has something to do with "key words", but hey, I only "analyze people's heads", and/or "analyze their businesses", and subsequently make recommendations ... IT extremely savvy I am not!

Just wanted to address this technicality.

Social Groups is a tool added to the functionality of the forum software. It was added to give the members with very specific interests a place to "hang out" with members of like mind.

The social groups will not be listed on the Main Discussion board but BlueSoverign is right in that Hud and the entire mod team endorse the "Singles Group" and wish them well.

The idea to add the link to the social group in Ocean Girl's signature is an excellent one and a great way to promote a social group.

Couple of other points -

- Any member can create a social group.
- The group can be completely open, moderated to join or moderated to join and moderated to post. These settings are set by the group creator.
- The groups work like a "single threaded" message. Each new post placed above the last one.
- The mods have access to these groups but we are fundamentally hands off unless something gets reported. We haven't had that occur just yet.
- Normal forum rules apply -especially the be nice rule but we allow a far broader range of disccusion, language and topics.
- The creator of the site has "some" responsibility to moderate the site especially if they have set the site to be a moderated site but the mod team is here as backup.

Just wanted to let everyone know we have some new members on our singles group page.

Members:
I am trying to set up a mass pm to communicate with the members only, but until then I'll post here
Feel free to post a bio if you haven't already. I am thinking about posting a master member list in the intro page with name, gender, age, port of call. I want to do this because the members list w/ avatars is not complete, you have to click view all members to get a complete list. A visitor may not know this and miss your name as a member of the singles group.
Any comments?? please let me know if there is anything I can improve upon. I am working 10 hour shifts so it may take a while to get back to you, but I would love some feed back.
Erika

Due to concerns over privacy, I will not post a master list So to get a complete list of the members of Single Sailors Seeking Soul Mates just click on view all members list on the main Single Sailors Seeking Soul Mates page.

Please keep the feedback coming. I am new to this forum stuff and this is my first singles group (as a member or organizer), so newbie all around . I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to give suggestions and ideas for this group. I'm working long shifts at the hospital so please pardon the delay answering your pm's.
Cheers,
Erika

The "Soul Mates" causes me worry! Appears to have a lot of hooks attached to it. How about a sub section for just social interface with sailing/ cruising being the main key element.

Always have interest in expanding friendship base but not with the fish hooks apparent in some sites and the Soul Mates just makes me cringe a tad.

Why not start another Social Group, RC, whose central premise is friendship with no strings attached? I'm sure there are others like yourself who would find that more their "cuppa tea."

Hello

ok to all.............this is a first totally for me............both message board and this site. I have some sailing experience "hence the word some" , sailed the BVI's, Grenadines, Bahamas..........with friends that have been cruising for 5 yrs. on a 45 cat. Me, single, looking to hit the water for a while...............working on that before the end o fthe year. So this is where I'm at for starters. I'd like any and all advice I can get. Bottom line...........I need to learn, and experience and i'm willing. Perfect world.....find my perfect female mate............until then........I'm just exploring potential options, and hoping to learn.

Thanks,
David
