  • [COMPLETED] So you've almost qualified as an Officer.

    Would be good to have a forum about almost qualifying, or about to qualify, for information about your firs trip to sea, how to sort out your NI / Tax, pensions and anything else people can think of.

    It would, but we've been a bit wary of this... don't want to get told off for "offering financial advice".
    I know that you're only in trouble if you take money for it, but not knowing the law is no excuse, so... it stays within the realms of PMs at the moment. We can't afford lawyers to ask!

    I think there have been some bits of info and spreadsheets passed about, but it's taken at your own risk ;p
    I think the real problem is what if someone got some "advice" off someone on the site, and it was wrong, and cost them money and grief, and then they got upset and came back complaining and stuff... could be awkward...

        It is available for all current officers, people can request to be added to this on an individual basis.

              Members who are qualified officers belong to the "Qualified officers" group on the forum, as you may have noticed there are numerous 'groups' set up and most people have already subscribed themselves to the groups they want to belong too.

              As for the qualified officers group people will be moved to this group by an admin once they have been identified as officers - alternatively you can request to join the group via the member control panel.

              As for other 'hidden' forums, there are some forums that we use for moderating/admin purposes that only we can see.

                So I've set my status to "qualified Deck officer" (is it true?) and I still can't see the special clique/forum. Whose arse do I have to kiss?

                      Ah, I see. Thanks.

                      I think I was seeing it before, but did not realise that I was seeing it.
