Private Forums


Use this forum to discuss other private forums.

To request a new forum place a topic here or email one of the moderators. If your request is accepted, you will be set-up as a moderator of your own private forum.

If you have a private forum and wish to invite others to join it then you can put your invitation in this forum.

Use a private forum if you have one or more colleagues that you wish to discuss topics with that you don't want to be visible to the general public.
