Great idea, However I may be with Bob on this one, Yes I am on facebook and Myspace, But still not too sure its a good idea to advertise to the bosses who we really are. Its a pity its like this, but thats the Ha life I guess :slr: :slshh:

There are loads of non-NT members on the 2 facebook groups and I don't believe anyone has had any stormtrooper interaction on either of them

Already on one other HATO facebook group.. No issues, no probs either... Plenty of staff on there who have their own personal profiles (no names mentioned) and quite openly mention that they are HATO's.

thanks for all comments on this topic

I think members are right to be cautious

I am concerned with the thought of

a) Traffic Officers revealing their actual names on facebook

this tells anybody who wants to know Traffic Officers' real names

b) Members of this site joining the facebook group and revealing that their username = real name

this tells anybody who wants to know the actual identity of a person who joined this site with a username

these are the areas that concern me

Why not start an invite only National Traffic group - can't even be searched for :slz:

If people want to join they can send me a message (perhaps on NT) and I can invite them into the group. I am not that worried about Stormtroopers anymore - they quite obviously know who I am!

As a relative newbie to the TO service, this issue was brought up in our training course. HR stated that you could be a member of these groups, providing you do not discuss issues on there. As for NT, don't get me started...... :slr: :slr: :slr:

Yes I would, my only fear is it exposes us to the stormtroopers and while I know of management on here, there are some notwithstanding Jezza's stalker who will do all they can to score points.

Hi guy's 'n girls,

From an outside point of view, ie, not being involved with traffic, I fail to see the term "Storm troopers"

Who are they?

Can a couple of yo guy's just put it a bit clearer as to why the "storm troopers" musn't see you, or know your name,

:arrow: further details on "stormtroopers" are here!! < uk_vette

so Bob Parr says if the group was invite only he would join :slhi:

so would anybody else join IF the group was invite only?

I am loathe to make it "invite only" unless there are a number of members asking for this

so far we have 1 :slgo: any more?
