As part of this new forum, I can create and modify groups. I would like to create a "Credentialed Professionals" group to distinguish certain posters. Part of the issue we have had in past forums is that credentialed and well-respected musicians would write posts, only to be flamed by anonymous users. With this feature, these people would be clearly marked and any future newcomers to the site would have a better opportunity to quickly discern who to trust and who is....well, less-than trustworthy!
If you would like to be a member of this group, please clicks "Groups" on the top navbar, select the "Credentialed Professionals" group and request membership. Please give some evidence for your request in a private chat session with administrator. Thank you!
