    None. I haven't come across any others, and I'm quite happy here as I have so far got a reply to all my questions.

    I think the Google Group you mention is uk.rec.scouting. That's a usenet newsgroup that's been going for much longer than escouts.

    It provides another source of opinion and ideas and it's personal preference whether this is better or worse than uk.rec.scouting.

    Personally, I read some of u.r.s. and most of what goes on here. I post here more often than I have on u.r.s. for many years.

    The problem i find with the newsgroup is that its very easily spammed, where as we try our best to remove any thread or post, that is either offensive or inappropriate as soon as we can here on escouts.

    Yeah any idiot can post anything they want, some of it is offensive on a newsgroup, and no one can moderate it.

    I also feel that discussions are lost in multiple threads, which a forum handles much better

    There is a great wealth of opinion on uk.rec.scouting, its a pity it wasnt better structured and spam free

    I must be thick! I have no idea how to access a newsgroup and from what has been said here I don't think I want to! I have enough trouble with spam as it is.. I enjoy this site. I have always had answers to my many questions, and now I am feeling slightly more confident in my abilities I feel I can try to help others as well. The only problem I have now is that I find that work gets in the way of Scouts!!
