Ah I see, slightly crossed wires there! I hadn't really thought much before about the HQ groupings, as most of my research has been using SubBrit where they are all listed by County.
I think the things that's confusing is the use of the word 'group'
You could put a bit of guidence in the FAQ at the top to make sure people put the right thing, as I would have probably tryed to work out what group HQ the post is part of, and not neccessarily put the county.
I expected that but I did discuss it with Krela first! I wouldn't be so brazen to tell you lot what to do on a second post otherwise
Ref comment above about hierarchy: it does make sense from a strict logic point of view, but I think generally people are more interested in specific posts than groups so having that as the primary field works best. On the occasion you do want to view a whole group the search will work effectively.
Yes I asked him to write this, so don't jump the gun
When you guys have decided how to do the naming I'll make it official.
Shepy your suggestion is a good one... assuming people manage to keep the spelling and format of the group name consistent.
If this forum gets very busy I may give it it's own moderator to keep things shipshape.
Often a good source of information is the post itself. Some (in fact, quite a few) still contain the maps showing the groups and the post clusters (in sub-groups of three, one of which was a master post). By comparing these maps to the grid references, post numbers can be attributed to the posts (if number isn't found on other equipment, such as post diary) and the structure of the group determined.
