This is a public website, that is, no log in is required to view it. That’s because it’s intended to be of service not only to PPA plot holders, but also to other members of the public who may be interested for whatever reason.
Likewise, any member of the public may comment on the blog articles on this website. Comments are – by unfortunate necessity now – moderated, but please be polite, on-topic, truthful, and amiable.
The website team – unpaid volunteers – operate it for the benefit of all at the PPA site, and so final editorial oversight is given to the consensus of the PPAA Committee – elected by the site. A member is presently the Duty Editor, and the technical administrator for the website is currently a Committee helper.
There’s no requirement under either the PPAA Constitution or the Local Management Agreement for PPAA to be involved in the operation or content of any website, social media accounts etc., and so there are no rules in that regard beyond general law to which this site must adhere. It does pretty much follow the established conventions for similar enthusiast sites, however.
The correct channel for bringing general matters to the attention of PPAA Committee is by the means explained on the contact page – but not by comments on this website. It isn’t the responsibility of website admin to pass e.g. off-topic comments to them, and nor will anyone on PPAA Committee necessarily read them in timely manner even when they remain. This website doesn’t – at the time of writing – notify the PPAA email account of comments posted either. For those on the WordPress emailing list, please remember that the reply by email facility publishes a comment on the blog, but doesn’t directly contact PPAA Committee!
The site doesn’t use any analytics, nor store any user information from visitors beyond a subscriber list and general traffic information, and it’s also advert free.
The modest expenses associated with the site’s upkeep are kindly defrayed by PPAA from its funds.
Above all though, we appreciate your visits to this site, and we hope very much that you find your browsing both informative and enjoyable!
PPA Website Team.
