Forum Help / League Member Cleanup - 8/22/2015
August 22, 2015, 02:56:04 AM
We're executing a cleanup of the League Members group based off of the 2016 season declaration roll call that has been going on over the last 1-2 weeks ahead of some upcoming key votes which will be announced on our Announcement and General Discussion forums. You should of been contacted by your team leadership (or league leadership) regarding this. As a result, you may no longer have access to the Announcements/General Discussion forums. If this is in error, please contact your team leadership or the forum administrator (gbd@qcrg.net).

Apologies for any inconvenience.

When browsing the site in the mobile version, you'll see an option to go to the full site (as you'd see on a computer). However, sometimes when you switch to the full version, you'll find yourself unable to go back to using the mobile site.

If this happens - use this link: http://forum.qcrg.net/?thememode=mobile

If you happen to click that link while on a computer, and want to revert back to the full site, use this link: http://forum.qcrg.net/?thememode=full
Forum Help / Mobile Device Notes
November 16, 2014, 01:02:54 AM
If you're visiting this site on a mobile device, a couple of notes.

1) Most features (login, new topic, notify, profile, etc) are available via the Menu icon in the upper-right corner of every page:

2) When signing in, I highly recommend using the option to always be logged in (unless using say a public or shared computer) as this will ensure you needn't sign into the forums repeatedly (such as when following emailed links to topics or posts).

Forum Help / Using Notifications
October 27, 2014, 11:17:07 PM
Notifications allow you to receive an email when there is a new topic made in a board you subscribe to, or when there is a reply to a topic you have subscribed to.

You can find the option to subscribe to boards or topics in the bottom-right hand corner of each board or topic:

Clicking on it will give a prompt to confirm, after having subscribed you'll be notified going forward. You can un-notify by clicking on the same button again (now called 'un-notify').

By default, everyone is subscribed to team and committee boards that they are members of. This means you'll be notified of new topics in these forums regardless of your particular settings for that board. This does NOT extend to the General Discussion (league) forum. If this policy changes there will be an announcement.

Another important note -- you can review your notification settings at http://forum.qcrg.net/index.php?action=profile;area=notification

Here you have the option to automatically subscribe to any topic you have posted in (including topics you have created), whether to include the content of topics/replies in the emails sent (recommended), and to set your notification settings for how often you want to receive emails -- instantly (all replies/topics); instantly but only for the first unread reply (until you visit the topic); daily; or weekly. I highly recommend using at least daily notifications, and giving the instant options a try even if you felt Yahoo sent entirely too much email.

If you are finding you get emails for some replies/topics, but not all - it is likely you have your notification settings set to 'instantly but only for the first unread reply' (this is the forum default). Change to 'Instant' to receive all notifications, regardless of how often you visit the forum (best for keeping on top of things via your inbox).

The last option concerns whether to be notified of replies, moderation, or both. I'm not sure what the real purpose of the moderation part is, but you'll want reply notification.

You'll also see a list of all of your subscribed boards and topics and can un-subscribe en masse. Per above, you'll be automatically subscribed to your team and committee boards and this option will not show up in this list.
Access to any forum here is governed by an accompanying membergroup. You can see a list of your groups by visiting http://forum.qcrg.net/index.php?action=moderate;area=viewgroups

Clicking on a group will then take you to a listing of every individual who is in that particular group, and by extension, show every individual who can see its accompanying forum. You can also use this list to remove individuals, as well as to add them (regardless of whether they have explicitly requested membership or if they have requested and been denied in the past).

Note: Members of the Administrators group can see all forums (this is a software feature that cannot be changed). The only account presently in this group is an admin system account used to maintain admin settings in the forums -  it does not receive topic notifications.
After you register for an account on the forums, you'll still need to be added to membergroups before you can get access to league/team/committee discussions.

You can always see which membergroups you are a part of, and which ones are available to request membership in, by going to http://forum.qcrg.net/index.php?action=profile;area=groupmembership In order to gain access to a group's discussions, you must request access to that particular membergroup.

The list of available groups breaks down into three categories:

  • League Members - All league members should request access to this, it gives access to the general league forums.
  • Teams - Each team (plus the herd, court, and league volunteers) has their own membergroup.
  • Committees - Each committee (e.g. training, events) has their own membergroup.

Note: For Juniors Members / Parents, select the Juniors Members group.

After creating your account, be sure you go to http://forum.qcrg.net/index.php?action=profile;area=groupmembership and request access in your relevant groups!
