Post by Globalfightback »

Hello, thanks for joining, and welcome to the new Global Fightback forums. Come down the rabbit hole and debate the world.

I encourage people from every corner of the planet to engage with each other and discuss ideas for helping to make our precious and beautiful world a better place for all - not just the privileged few. The vision when I created the website was to build a global portal for people from all corners of the world to meet, engage, and share ideas and information, and it is hoped that these new forums will play a key part in this. The entire site features SSL secure encryption for passwords etc.

If you are passionate about helping to repair the damage that humans have done to the planet, please engage with others, here and elsewhere, and let's help to contribute towards what will be a very lengthy process that will no doubt require some radical change in both thought and practice.

I believe that forum boards are preferable to social media sites, since debate is archived in a more readily accessible manner - even years after being posted. Most social media sites are full of simplistic and sensationalist content that panders to a herd mindset; here, I wish to encourage serious and objective debate, whilst still finding time to celebrate the lighter side of life.

Please feel welcome to start your own discussion topics, and please tell any friends who you think might be interested about our forums and our website at https://globalfightback.org. If you want to be automatically notified of replies to any topic, click on the spanner icon at the bottom of the post and, in the dropdown menu, select 'Subscribe topic'. To discourage spamming and trolling the first three* posts of every new member require Admin approval before they are visible to other members. After posting this number this restriction is lifted and you will come out of the Newly Registered User Group into the standard Registered User Group, which has less restrictions on the way you use the Board, and you may at a later date be placed into a group with even more privileges.

You will have been asked to agree to some Terms when you registered for the forums. Please note that these are not to be taken lightly. Any refusal to abide by these Terms, including any abuse towards others, whether they be members of the forums or individuals or groups in the wider world, will result in the post being removed once we become aware of it and, after one unheeded warning (or immediately, at our discretion), you will be removed and blocked from the entire forum board. Please debate in a civilised and constructive manner. Anger and inflated egos are not the way forward towards a better world. Please report any abuse by others to Admin, either by PM or via the forum board's Contact form.

If you wish to personalise the forum board you can do this in the User Control Panel, in the drop-down menu by the login button. You can even choose a completely different template for the appearance of the board: go to the Board Preferences tab in the User Control Panel and try out the available styles in 'My board style' until you find the one you like best. The default style at thie moment of writing this (subject to change) is Prosilver Dark Edition, but there is a lighter Prosilver option that is better suited to viewing outdoors in bright sunlight. Please note that if you choose the Blackboard style the Contact icons in the right-hand side panel are not currently configured, but you can still contact Admin via the envelope icon at the bottom-right of the page. You can find more information about how to get the best from these forums by taking a look at the FAQ link at the top of this and every page, and also from the official phpbb User Guide here: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.3/ug/userguide/

Please note that, at the time of writing, this forum board is newly launched and still under construction, come back later to see more details and user advice, both on this post and others that are added below it in the General Information forum.

Enjoy your time here, and thanks for joining. If there's anything you're uncertain of please don't hesitate to contact me, either by PM or via the website email address, gfbconnect@outlook.com.



* count is currently 3 for posts by newly registered users requiring approval before becoming visible to others, subject to change.
