When you say they're not endorsed, does that mean you disapprove? Or am I being too pedantic?

No disapproval at all. Perhaps a better form of words is needed. Will work on it.

[If the socials weren't always on a Thursday I might even be brave enough to come along myself...]

Aw...James, what's so special about THursdays?

As there has never been an "official" get together perhaps we could just rename this section "get togethers" as it does sound rather disapproving and as though we should maybe be avoided! Or perhaps "Socials" or "Social Diary". You can still add the not endorsed caveat.

'Socials' is short and fits on one line and people know what they are. As Plum says, you can still make clear they are our responsibility and not yours.

Yeah, James about time we saw you at the Social. We owe you a big one. I love this forum.

I think that:

Official "Unofficial Get-togethers section"

would do nicely, wouldn't it?

[and if you said which night was better for you, James, we could make the next social on that night. It'd be great to see you]

...if you press it, they will come.

Thanks for the name change, James.

It's actually quite nice having all of these threads gathered in one place. I've just spent a very pleasant half an hour re-reading them. Hopefully, if others do the same, it will help to reassure them that they are fun, and that it's worth overcoming any (understandable) nervousness about coming along for the first time.

I'd be delighted if you were able to come along to the next one. Just one thing - could you change the name of this section in the quicklink box in the top right-hand corner? Cheers.

Unofficial get togethers sounds incredibly cumbersome, and Socials sounds...a bit odd....perhaps Socialising is better. Anyway, I agree it's good having this section. Yes, God bless James, this is a grade A forum. James, you still didnt say....what IS it with Thursdays? I'm dying to meet you. I have this image of a tall, dark, handsome, bespectacled (think Clarke Kent) have nothing to fear, I am a small, shrivelled little old lady.
