Since I didn't hear any objections, I have changed the permissions in the Voices of Experience forum to allow all registered AikiWeb members to start a thread and also be able to reply to their own thread.
Once again, as I wrote earlier up above:
So, if you have thoughts, questions, or anything that you wish to have fielded by the Voices of Experience members, please feel welcome to start a new thread
Please note, though, that unless you've filled out this form
to certify that you have had over twenty years of active training specifically in aikido, you will not be able to respond to any of the threads.
Here's hoping for the best for this experimental forum!
