    On another board I used to frequent, they had a forum called "Chat to the Moderators".

    It was a private forum where only the member who started the thread and the Mods could read posts.

    It served two purposes: If a Mod needed to address something with a member, then it gave accountability before the entire Mod team...and more importantly it gave the members a forum wherein they could discuss issues or problems in a private setting with the leadership of the board.

    Note: The Chat to Mods was not for general questions, and was so noted.

    I enjoy this board, and am wondering if a C2M here might be a boon to the board.

    I would like to hear what the other Mods (commies, derailer, mutin-ist come on in!) have to say though.

    Hey, we have a totally underutilized private forum section.

    Anyone is free to request a private session where they and the Staff can post privately. :yes

    I didn't realize that! :lol

    I thought the private forums were just for Bible Study, and the Men/Women's forums...

    Is there something in the rules/announcements/ToS that I missed? (wouldn't be the first time :tongue)

    Not really a big deal...just a suggestion. :biggrin

    :lol I made that option up today. Since that section isn't being used as much as we thought, I was thinking, why not use it for Member/Mod private sessions?

    The "section" you were talking about. Is it the PBS?

    Yes, that would be good. We could also rename the PBS to Private Discussion Forum, with emphasis on Bible Studies and member-to-staff discussions? :chin
