  1. "What BB soft ware are you looking at using? Without knowing I can only offer a guess on how much you can turn on and off certain features. If the PM function raises red flags disable it." It's the former EZBoard (now Yuku). It is very flexible with security features. Still exploring them. Haven't found a means to disable PMs, yet.

The Message Board we "tested" also has the capability of "locking out" everyone except those in our Scouting community, so that's not what started us thinking. It also has oth
  4. This has likely been discussed before, but I can't get the search function to cooperate so please bear with me... The Troops in our town were considering creating an internet message board so that our Scouts and Leaders could more easily trade info, ideas and the Scouts could discuss things (both things Scouting and otherwise) thus, hopefully, strengthing friendships. We created a "test" Board and began to kick ideas around. Then, stepping back and taking a critical look at the idea, we immediately began to consider Youth Protection issues.
