group, something like a forum, post topics here if you like, thanks

'Enlisting new members'was an important issue at the Board Meeting,
as membership was down drastically. The Athlete Reps were called
upon to be more accessible, and after various things were discussed,
I stood and talked about the need for a greater 'interactivity' with
our USS website, that in my view, it was a 'dead end'[for potential
newbies] as far as modern websites go; no Forum bulletinboard, and,
as anyone who has gone there for a look knows, most if not all the
youth in the Ist world spend a considerable amount of time
on 'MYspace', [72 million], so for USS not to have some action there
was a wasted resource, no?
but whoever at USS created the site monday, after the meeting,
created it as if 'USS' was a person. The USS staffer who initiated
the Site need to enter USS also as a 'Myspace group', so 'myspacers'
surfing thru 'groups' can see us.
I sent a 'myspace' message to USS re: this detail, and also to the
fact that their is no 'Myspace'Icon/link on the old USS website main
page to take us over there.
and Matt didn't set it up, he was just the first one 'invited', as
he told us.
As I said, if this just gets us one new member, it was worth it;
but it should be more fruitful than that, looking at 'Myspace'
