Membership Data

Post by Joe Steel on Tue Oct 25, 2011 10:03 am

A few days ago, we had an announcement asking members of the forum to list their location in a particular way. That's disappeared so I guess we no longer need the information. I think we do need standards of information, though, certain things we collect from each member so we can ensure the product of this effort reflects the American People as a whole. I'd like to see some standards posted in a sticky announcement. New members would be required to supply it before joining and current members would have to update their information.

My concern is prompted by observation of the various general assemblies. While we do see some middle age and older participants, the GAs seem mostly younger folks, 20s and 30s. That's pretty much what I'd expect from an effort organized around outdoor activities with as much risk as the occupations entail. We have to be careful, though, that our work reflects the efforts of more than the folks who can assume that kind of risk. At least, we should know that it's skewed if it is.

Agreed, but there are major concerns with the security of this site. Before we all commit to giving out loads of personal info (like I have myself, doh) let's move to a far more secure site. Non-public info can easily be pulled from databases like this.

I agree with Molly. The preservation of PII (Personally Identifiable Information) is a top priority behind moving to a more secure site. That, and withstanding direct hacking attacks from critics. (And there will be some).

OK.

You're right.

Although, upon reflection, anyone with half a brain could figure out where I live.
