With reporting to us, we will have a note sent to HU and let them know that the button doesn't function correctly. Even I had trouble with it a few weeks ago.

Reply

mainly trouble is faced when we are using mobile or tablet....if it is PC or laptop...rarely we will face said problem... Guess android and HU interfaces got some problems...

Reply

Same with IPhone and the mobile app itself.

Reply

As for restrictions, it depends on the type of spam/issues that the person has done.

Reply

you are very old and senior member of this group.... your suggestions are very valuable....

plz speak out openly what you have in your mind by asking fixed policy about restricted members...

Reply

Before being restricted, is he given any warning or caution ?

Reply

hmmm depends on type of his reply.... mostly commercial spammers are restricted immediately without any discussions...

Along with that, they also can't promote 'cures' and give false hope. Those are the ones who gets banned by HU themselves after HU gets notified.

Reply

banning and restriction are two different things... banning is done by HU...

Admin can restrict and report to HU

Reply

Banning is lifelong ?

Reply

Yes, banning is lifelong and done by HU.

Reply

banning is done by HU.... restriction is from admin... restriction can be revoked ...however final decision is with Activity2004

If spammers are restricted with immediate effect . No problem.

But when discussing certain topic, if things become hot and unruli, then no restriction without warning.

Once restricted ,concerned person must be informed about his restriction .

All restricted

cases must be reviewed regularly and decision taken accordingly.

Reply

in that case...I think you can always send message to admin...and discuss the matter...

So there is no clear cut policy.

Reply

We're getting to that.

Reply

well patliputra nah...forming clear cut policy in such matters is impossible...

So HU got HUMAN admins...

or else they would have robots instead of humans...

It is up to the judgement of admin... and final authority will be Activity2004

why not share your story Shashikantiyengar

cure

Had done in Sept

Maybe once i get retested in lab i will post again..

But we need more members to share to motivate others & also new comers

Reply

yeah....very true...

But really speaking if we see there are few active members in forum...

many members are just readers... but don't know they are shy to share experiences...

we need to overcome this issue...

Reply

We have to be patient. If the new members see that they are being asked to do something that they are not comfortable with, they may not stay. That wouldn't be okay.

Yes.personal attacks on fellow members by PM/or in reply should be taken seriously by administrators.This will help members to respond without fear of ridicule or belittling their opinions

Very good point, rvmasalvad. No one is allowed to personally attack other members and/or the Administrators. This is a definite banning reason.

No point in attacking anyone

On Facebook or HU?

Reply

Can failure ( of certain plan ) can also be posted ?

Reply

Can you please explain, patliputra?

Reply

Nothing to explain. Failure of certain dietary system can also be shared, or that will be inappropriate .

Reply

It would be okay. Is there something you wanted posted on the subject?

Reply

Will think over it.

Reply

Meeting idea is good. Here can talk freely.

Reply

That's right.

Reply

why not patliputra ??? we should be very honest on sharing of success and failure both....

this is forum for peer to peer support....

Look at me...I do follow LCHF....big fan of @anup....

but many times I do question him lot in forum....

Trust me as true Indian....I always have faith in old indian saying It is said 'vade vade jayate tatvabodha.'Means discussion lead us to truth.

So all fights/discussions which takes place here are very useful. Just we have to be swan.

Reply

Our group motto and policy is this: Everyone works together as a team and gets along with each other. This is what I want you guys to do. Makes things easier.

Reply

good motto /policy.i support.

Hostile and authoritative reaction to pos/replies should not be encouraged including usage of rough language.A polite and helpful language even if there is difference of opinion should also be part of policy /motto

Groups working must be transparent. It will instill confidence in all the members. And many who don't participate in discussion will come forward. A decent and disciplined discussion.

There is a late add-in. I'm now also the Admin. for Healthy Eating. I got the news on Wednesday afternoon. I'm not going anywhere. Just working 3 groups, now.

Anyone else have anything to say?

If there aren't any other comments, the next meeting will be next month same time (7:30 pm/10 am). Thank you all for coming. Enjoy the rest of the evening. Lunch time here.

I think you had better explain how one can "attend" a meeting. I had a look at the mail at about 20.30 CET+1 but saw nothing. Are we live on line together or what? You seem to assume that everybody knows what to do. As for the agenda, this is the first time I've set eyes on it. Sorry to be grumpy but........................................? I'll try to be around the next time you decide to have a get-together.
