    Have to take some things on faith mate. At a time like that it quickly becomes obvious who the really close ones are. Generally everyone kinda steps back and acknowledges that certain people should be doing certain things including letting everyone know. I can't remember a fatal accident where someone didn't let the Moderators know who would be doing the communicating.

    great idea... i have discussed things briefly with susan, but will be sitting down for a more intensive chat tonight i think. she sometimes reads kb over my shoulder, but thats it. i might encourage her to sign up for her own account.

    thanks MT, and everyone else who helped with this.

    Grub and I sat down and had a chat ... he thought things one way and me another. Once we both had our say we decided and agreed how things should be handled ... its good to be able to discuss this prior to anything happening

    Yup, Have had the conversation as well. Kick and I went for different options, fair enough!

    Its an important thing and a great move for KB, it takes the decision away from the Moderators on how things are dealt with, and puts it in the hands of the people involved directly.

    Very cool!

    Hey,

    Discussed it with her indoors - she voted for "family to make announcement, separate discussion thread" for both flavours. It was taken seriously and the effort you put in was appreciated. Good job, man!

    One of the great things about KB is discovering inteligent caring people here.
    Congratulations and thankyou to all involved.

    Just one wee request, can we have an option for a nominated person/people to announce an incident? Some have quite a few friends so it may become a little unclear who should do it. Emotions can stop people thinking clearly in these situations.
    How about an option for it to be someone off your emergency contacts?(keep it fairly simple)
    Otherwise this is a good positive step in the right direction

    thats a good point. there are several members i consider very close friends, and i can see where it may get confusing.

    Yup!

    I let my partner know that only him, Sue or Jimmy can do it.

    So if Admin cant change the setting, maybe communicate to your loved ones who should be doing the "announcement"?

    For now I suggest using the Emergency Contact Number field. You can fit about 5 names and numbers in there.

    I just dont agree that KB members need any options on how to handle it, I think this is OTT, I think that this is not the business that KB should be involving itself with.

    if you read post 18 you will see why i disagree with this part of your post as there are a heap of guys/gals who know me on here but not my wife or family therefor if there is a proses that we go through on here its not likely to turn to

    Excellent scheme. My partner and I are both members here so we will talk about it and make our decisions. He doesn't come in very often, so it might be weeks or months before he saw any thread about me. Seeing some of the 'Biker Down' threads in here, I think it would be terrible for him to stumble across all kinds of unpleasant speculation.

    Thanks again for the options.
