Thanks for the prompt Donna, I’ve been and checked my profile page. Its as up to date as it can be; I tend to wait to post new publication work until its published it seems to be taking longer these days between me finishing things and books being published.
I have had at least a couple of clients in the last year as direct hits from my profile on the SAI, so I do update reasonably regularly but I wonder if many members look at the forum from one month to the next? As a regular user I find it both entertaining, informative, useful and all the other things it should be for, but I sense I am in the minority here apart from council members. Would it do any harm occasionally to spam SAI members on email to highlight current news/issues to encourage participation? As there hasn’t been a newsletter for a year a lot of members won’t have had much interaction, and even a quarterly email to all members could hardly be considered intrusive?
Sadly, Chris, there are even some Council Members ‘who cannot be bothered’ to visit the forum.
Their words – not mine. What a shame 😥 The time taken each day to check registrations to winkle out scams, spam and other dubious applications, is sometimes long and tedious. There is just one other moderator, Tim, to share the load and it might be a good idea to ask the membership for more volunteers to carry our regular moderation of posts.
But as Chris points out, this forum is probably not the best place to post the request 🙂 !

Sounds like a good idea to me Chris, I think you are right, a lot of members will wonder what’s going on with no newsletter for a long time. Especially as a couple of years ago they were coming out almost quarterly or so it seemed.
