My guess is it will take several months to get this forum off the ground. I am wide open for ideas and suggestions!
- I picked 3 Categories "Welcome" "Hot Stove" and "Umpires Corner" to keep it as simple as possible.
- I called it League Resource Center, similar to Kevin Hunters LLUMPIRE.COM site that uses the header Umpire Resource Center.
- I am learning how to operate this platform which is known as IPB or IPBoards or Invision Power. IPVB is a very powerful platform and most of their on-line help is very complex to me. Be that as it may I seem to be able to find enough Youtube videos and support forums to inch me through this.
- This is the same platform Umpire-Empire.Com forum uses and they have been extremely helpful as I keep bugging with questions.
- A good friend of mine (and local LL Board member) owns a web development company and he loaded up the forum and is hosting it on his server.
- I'll add moderators to help keep the forum focused and clean in the upcoming weeks once I learn the role each member plays.
- I have a lot to learn about setting permissions, allowing downloads etc....
Please help with input, ideas and patience as we get this forum launched, it will take a lot of effort!
