Each faction has a locked, private subforum on the new Factions forum. This provides a confidential space where you can discuss strategic matters with other members of your faction. They are locked and hidden until your registration is confirmed: CrazyMLC, the forum administrator, is personally adding people to the appropriate groups.
To request confirmation of your status as a member of your faction, and gain access to the subforum, please post here.
Enjoy! Note that, in addition to the private subforum for your faction, there is also a public discussion area.
