NAVY Rumour Service?!

#10
Issues, yes I suppose. We (that's the CO's - I haven't taken to using the Royal we quite yet) were wondering if we could make a separate Navy site, but with some boards shared - so current affairs, charity, finance and so on would become 'purple' and be seen on both ARRSE and a sister Navy board. A complete Dark Blue ARRSE would be installed as www.some-salty-name.com, and be totally separate appart from that and I think you'd automatically be a member of both if you joined.

No great secret - gut reaction anyone? I can't see any negative side for ARRSE - quite the opposite in fact, and I notice our RN users have come out of the er.. locker lately anyway.

It may not be tecnically feasible of course, so don't hold your breath.

Navy folk, it would need one of you to run it of course. We wouldn't try to do any more than me the providers, otherwise no-one would use it I think.

Any chance the group memberships module can be used? What I'm thinking could happen is if you register from arrse.co.uk or arrse.com you could automtically added the army group, and likewise for a RN or RAF url (that should be a minor software change to the registration process).

If your not a member of a group, when you go into Forums - those not belonging your group aren't displayed. The purple forums wouldn't belong to any group - so visible to all. Each different site could use its own theme

The main forum block in the 'site index' may be a pain to recode thou.

Oh, I was rather hoping the issues were of a Freudian, "I always fancied a sailor in me foc'sle" sort of nature.

Otherwise, sounds like a good idea to me. (except for the gay purple).
