DLF is not able to respond to every individual question about Youreable that crop up in discussions in the forums above. However, we shall use this post to provide answers to the most common questions that people seem to be asking where possible.
New forum policy
DLF’s new forum policy has been approved by our legal advisors. The clause relating to charges to remove posts refers only to posts made by people who have previously been banned for misusing the forum. It also only states that DLF reserves the right to charge to remove posts in these circumstances, not that we shall do so as a matter of course. Situations like this (which we sincerely hope will be very rare) will be dealt with on an individual basis.
Old Youreable forum posts
At present unfortunately DLF is unable to provide access to the archive of Youreable.
As previously announced, only DLF staff will act as moderators of the forum. The role of these moderators will be solely to deal with reported posts that break our forum policy. These are the only type of moderators that DLF will be using.
At present the benefits forum will be the only forum made available in Youreable. This is so that we can see how it develops before making any further decisions. If people have questions about equipment, you can ask in our ‘Living made easy’ forum at http://forums.dlf.org.uk/forumdispla...Ask-a-question and one of our occupational therapists will respond if they are able to help. You may need to re-register as the two forums are separate.
