Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Has SCGB completely closed the chat forum now!?

Just tried going into the SCGB forum and found that there are no topics or posts ... just a big blank. Anyone else noticed that? maybe its just me but have they totally pulled the plug now due to the uproar "MO" day caused!?

I am a member but couldn't care less - I just wish everyone would vote with their feet and stop using the SCGB site.

I can't log onto SCGB as a member. One of my email logons (registered user) works, but that doesn't let me into members chat. Evil or Very Mad

I just looked and it simply says,"Sorry, there are no snow talk forums to show."

On their home page there are no news stories or features either.
Looking around the site it appears that anything which includes data that would typically be held in a database is absent.

oooOOOoooh!

I had a look and it had gone completely silent - also there news and features section has dissappeared. Sir David was alluding to 'things happening' on Thursday so maybe this is a precursor...

Either that or my polite acknowledgement of the presence of Madam President was considered the final straw Shocked

Matthew - I have received your mpeg thanks - did you land it then or what? I'll send you an email when I've uploaded it to the website. It'll be visible in the Club reps section under your name. (BTW - in case anyone was wondering the Club Reps section is open to everyone).

“The time has come - the Ski Club chat forums have become members only! The forums have really taken off this winter and there are over 60,000 messages that contain extremely valuable information about resorts, ski schools, websites, equipment, accommodation, driving to the Alps, family skiing and a lot of general chit-chat about skiing and snowboarding. This is a fantastic resource that we want to preserve.”

For what purpose?
Furthermore , in a public forum (and having read their terms and conditions), the poster (if not an employee) retains their copyright against commercial usage and would render any exploitation by the SCGB in breach of that. The SCGB is claiming a fiduciary benefit for your property!
I suggest that those who have posted to the SCGB forums, formally require the Ski Club of Great Britain to inform you of that value. The alternative would be a class action suit to recover that value.
‘There is a difference between making love and being screwed’

You could always ask them to scour the forums (current and archive) of all your contributions and to demand compliance.

Let's go forward and enjoy - not look back with unnecessary bitterness. It's much nicer here, and by the beginning of next season, we'll have an archive/ information library that will be the envy of SCGB as their postings dry up.

Elizabeth: forgive me, I was just addressing the frustration of the people who’re unhappy with the actions SCGB have taken and have claimed a financial benefit for.
Me . . . I’m just a ‘skanky’ boarder who believes in ‘fairness’. The SCGB are more than welcome to continue and attract new members, but it should not gain financial benefit from the contributions of those that contribute to it’s funding without representation on its managing committee.
You’re right, move on to a new way of promoting eating snow.

Masque. In moral and ethical terms you are quite correct. As an SCGB member, going back to 1962, I expect the Club to uphold the highest moral and ethical standards. There is a simpler remedy to the one you propose, which is for the Club to reverse its decision. The SCGB President will receive a demand to that effect tonight.

I see that jpg is 165K slowplough - if lots of folk do this u's database will swell enormously (did someone see a thread like that on another site somewhere ?..) I suspect. Unless u says otherwise could I ask that pics are put in as links rather than images? (there is also a potential copyright issue with this, I'lll check with peter b)

No, the database won;t swell since the pic isn;t in th database, it;s hosted elsewhere and simply linked

however it will annoy people like me who are on dial-up and have to download it!

Dave Burt. The meeting I attended was one of the SCGB's Environmental Group, which is chaired by the Club's President, Sally Cartwright. She made off-the-record remarks about the situation but, suffice it to say (and this is my impression), the Club has been pretty shocked by the firestorm it unleashed and is agonising over the problem at its most senior level!

There seems to be another thread running on the apology made.
