<ALL>Officer support forum

What is it?
The officer support forum is a place for members to have a private conversation with the officer team.

If you have any queries or concerns that you wish to put before the officers then you can do so here and every member of the officer team will be able to read and reply to your post.

How does it work?
Unlike with normal forums, threads created in the officer support forum are not restricted purely by forum rank.

Everyone has permission to create threads in this forum.

If you create a thread in this forum, you and all the officers will have permission to view it and post within it.
Nobody else will.

Why is my name at the start of some thread names?
If an officer wants to start a thread and include a member they will prefix the thread subject with that member's name in angle bracers <>.

If your name has been included in this way then the forum will treat the thread in the same way as if you had created the it yourself (as far as access permissions are concerned).

Only threads created in this forum by officers behave this way.

When should the officer support forum be used?
If you have anything you want to say to an officer then this forum will typically be more appropriate than a private message as it will be visible by all the officers. This will often mean that your post will be seen and responded to, sooner.

There may also be occasion that the officers wish to ask you, or inform you of, something that might be most appropriate just between you and them. This forum allows that without having to have a series of PM messages with just one officer at a time.

Re: <ALL>Officer support forum

Currently in Beta.

Feel free to play about, test, try and break it.

If you are particularly concerned about the security of a post then please wait till I post that the feature is out of beta.

Re: <ALL>Officer support forum

I assume we'll have to do some tests with members (Tiger, Kim?) as well to sort out the security and ensure posts are only visible to certain people and not everyone/anyone else?

Re: <ALL>Officer support forum

I have performed a series of tests that give me high confidence. This is just an end-user live test to check for gaps.

With the <ALL> tags then everyone should have normal forum access to this thread.

Re: <ALL>Officer support forum

OK
I made the change last night for the <ALL> tag and in my lemsip induced stupor I musta screwed it up somewhat.
Doesn't sound like it's granting access where it shouldn't but restricting it too much.

Can any non-officers see threads other than this one on the front page other than ones they have created?

Ya, looks like it's restricting officers but not admins.

Will look at it later.

Re: <ALL>Officer support forum

Same here duff, I can only see this thread in the forum itself, although I can see links to everyone's test threads on the recently viewed bar on the front page.

If I try to access any of those threads it access-denies me.

Re: <ALL>Officer support forum

Can do, though it's stickied at the top of the forum which is itself linked on the front page under the forum links.

Probably wants wikifying too.
