I don't like people.Why don't you do it?
You seem to know a few chaps around your way, surely you can get them to come along, and once a few come, others follow.
I'd love to try and turn it around but I'm not sure I've got the time or desire to do so.Fair points dude. Sometimes areas are dead and there's not much to be done. If you have a lot of active forum users in that area it's something you can try to turn around.
Nope...it was always as a side role alongside membership...so you paid the membership fee and were Area Rep alongside. It changed a couple of years ago to free membership as an Area Rep which is a good way of 'recompensing' the time taken to do Area Rep duties/planning/investigations for new places to go.It has always been available you just had to PM an admin when the time came round
Why would you post that until you know if Don is or isn't going to carry on being a rep?If Don is not a rep (thats if you want to anymore) then good luck to the new one (s) an area is built up on friendship and trust, if the key to that is removed then imo it falls flat on its face.
For instance a meet is arranged but needs payment in full of £30 i would happily send it to Don but doubt i would to someone i barely know who has stepped up in place. Regardless of saftey buffers through paypal etc its off putting.
Yep the same thing could be said about new members sending money to an established rep as they dont know them either, but there is how many years background of meets etc behind them for newbies to look back on.
Many if and buts and other little niggles but as i said a few months back why fix it if it aint broke?.
I know a large amount of midlands users have left and gone to other clubs but they still attend a large number of cs.net meets
Boo yah.Why would you post that until you know if Don is or isn't going to carry on being a rep?
We've asked existing reps re-apply in order to check they are still happy and committed to the role, as there were a large number that were no longer arranging meets. There's no 'fixing what ain't broke' we know who our good reps are, and there's no reason they would be removed from the role if they are happy to continue.
