maybe i worded it wrongly.
Wales is a quiet region, hence no replys to the feedback thread
Wales is a quiet region because previously its been shuffled in with other regions
Wales will be a quiet region because of a lack of "splitting up"
all i was trying to say (as a welsh member who considered applying) is being a rep for the whole of wales is off-putting
(i appreciate you weren't to know due to the lack of replies in the other thread)
What you have to understand is that we dont expect 100% attendace to these events but we will however reward the reps that do produce a covoy of a certain amount for an event making the effort they put in worth while and also so they feel valued, at the end of the day reps get perks for helping us (such as free membership) but we do not pay you a wage as its a volutary role and things like family and work commitments stopping you from doing something we would not question.In all honesty. I was happy doing it more causally. I dont want to attend shows because Im expected too. Ive done it since you left and that will do me.

I know what you mean about casual feeling of just sorting things for your area and we would like to keep that feeling within the area but as a club we have make sure we are getting the correct promotion hence why we ask the questions like " would you be willing to give up your time for CS events" because we cannot set some up as rep for them to turn round and say we I cant be bothered with this anymore and just stop doing things whilst retaining the free membership for carrying out a role.
these positions will be monitored and requirements have been set but i think 99.9% of people that have already applied are able to meet these without going out of their way with what they do already imo.
The best way to round this role up is a formal layout behind the scenes of the general forum to carry out an informal role, which for it work it cannot be any other way.
Quite obvious that I'm not bothered about the incentives as I've done it for the past however long off my own back with no recognition, I merely said I wanted to retract my application.

I agree with this. Knowing what members are in what region will help no end when trying to get a meet organised.Mandatory region selection needs to be implemented for this to work IMO.
Also be able to browse the new to Cliosport section by region so you can find new comers and start chatting.
I worked in Butlins many moons back - it's sort of similar I guess!If I were picking a rep I'd be looking for a regular poster who seems popular with other members. For me they would also have to be quite sociable in the flesh too, as from experience many of the regulars on here are shy and quiet in real life. Not saying that's a bad thing, but I think a rep should have a certain kind of leadership presence about him/her.
Yep to both the above. At present its actually harder to locate meets as no one has any idea where anything on this forum is.
Totally agree with the mandatory area selection and other stuff along those lines which is going to happen soon (once we have some reps to make it all work).
But to say it's currently harder to locate meets on the new forum makes no sense. All the regional forums are exactly the same, in exactly the same place as the old forum, except now it puts a massive banner along the top of the very same forum section showing the upcoming meets in that area, and also on the homepage. You'd have got no better response on the old forum tbh, which is exactly why we are focussing on new reps and the other tools like mentioned above to help them.
Yeah, i think there might be something we can do about that. The problem we face is while it's definitely needed to make people as aware as possible about meets, people had a mental breakdown at a little red flag they couldn't get rid of, so you can imagine what people who aren't interested in attending meets will say if we get it wrong lol
Could we put an alert at the top of the page when a new meet has been posted.Yeah, i think there might be something we can do about that.
