Web Resources Overview
From Monaro Folk Society
The MFS uses a number of web resources, for different purposes
1) The public MFS web site can be easily updated by any MFS Member and has the advantage that anyone can read the information without logging in or subscribing. If you are an MFS member and wish to update the site simply log in, hit "Edit", and type in your text.
The public web site has the advantage of simple, public, global, availability.
It has the disadvantage that anyone can see the information and that could pose security risks or be undesirable for some reason. However, if there is not a good reason to avoid the public site, this is the preferred option.
Information on the public site should not be repeated on the more restricted sites below
2) The Members-Only MFS Web Site http://www.mfs.org.au/wiki/ can be updated or read by any MFS member.
Most information about the MFS is available from the MFS public web site. This includes all events information.
However there is some information that is restricted to members-only, either because it is a benefit of membership, or is in the nature of internal discussion, committee minutes, members-only contact details, etc. This information is published on this members-only site, not on the public site. All other information is published on the public site and not duplicated on this members-only site.
Since only members can look at the information on this site, it is more secure, but folk have to log in to see it.
3) The MFS-Organisers group is meant for communication from MFS Committee to, and discussion between, our organiser community. It is a closed group.
All MFS Committee members, MFS Organisers, and key volunteers, those with a keen interest in matters MFS, are welcome to join this group. However there are probably other casual helpers and volunteers who are not that interested in being "organisers". These members cannot see information published in the Organisers group.
4) There are a number of other groups used by individual committees. Members of these committees should join the appropriate group(s) as well as the organisers group, so that they will receive group emails. Replying to a group is much more reliable and convenient for all concerned, rather than maintaining separate email address lists.
