From 30th October ArmyNet will have a new forum including anonymous posting, buddy lists, mod rating, etc, etc.

If you are going to have the option to be anonymous, will this make the ArmyNet forums a more interesting place to visit and post? (After ARRSE of course!)

Over to you.

I think the biggest difference will be that we are getting the experts to take ownership of their areas; answers from the horse's mouth so to speak.

On the face of it it will be anonymous, but they can track all users if they want to, and probably will, so beware.

Anonymous. There you have it. If someone wants the answer to a question now when they can see your username you very rarely get a worth while response, thats if your lucky enough to get a responce. If you have a legitimate problem why should you feel that it has to be dealt with anonymously?

Andy,

Are we ever going to be able to use our ArmyNet email addresses through Outlook?

Cheers

Quite apart from the whole anonymity thing, the input from certain non-service types who are experts in their areas is one of the better things about ARRSE.

And, frankly, I wouldn't trust anything originating in MB to be anything other than control-freakery and wibble.

We are looking into it and we are inprinciple for providing such funtionality. We need to do some work to get whatever service we use (imap, imap-s, pop etc etc) to be accepted by the IGS (currently blocks ports used by these services)

Just be sensible.

Exactly

The annon posting is supported at the highest level, any one posting annon will have their details protected unless they break the code of conduct or for that matter any laws.

.......and therein lies the dilemma. Breaking civilian law is one thing, breaking that imposed by military regulations, but which is not proscribed elsewhere, is quite another.

From their local, helpful MoD Press Officer, of course!

What's that you say, little voice in my head? The entire point? Now, look, you're just being silly....

Looks like a pig in a poke to me, and potentially dangerous from a disciplinary point of view for those who aren't web-savvy.

Why does every one have to think the worst.

I have personally dealt with complaints from individuals asking to remove people’s permissions from ArmyNET because they haven’t liked what they said on the forums. Our response as always is to read the posts in question and then act according to the post content and if it contravenes the code of conduct then i have dealt with the poster.

If you attack someone personally then you will be dealt with, if you raise an issue that you feel needs addressing but don't feel able to reveal your identity then your identity will be protected.

This policy has the highest backing possible (and I don't mean my mum)

Regards
