Drupal Security Updates - boilerplate explanation and justification documents

We are dealing with a new client right now, an agency that is working with a restaurant. The retaurant site has not been updated since 7.12! The agency is asking for some documentation to share with the client about the need for these updates.

I did a simple google search, and came up with no usable results! Maybe Drupal.org has some resources, but I have never seen anything like that there.

This would be a really valuable resource for everyone working with clients. I'm really surprised we as Drupal users are not sharing some of this.

Need website help

Hi, I am very new to Drupal. I recently had my site built in Drupal 7. I have a block set up so everytime I post to FaceBook it shows up automatically in that block.
I'm wondering if there is something that I can add to the Blog page so each time I post a blog it will automatically show up on my FaceBook page? Any help would be appreciated.

TCDrupal Non-Profit Decision

In December, we put off the decision on forming a non-profit until Jan - with the plan of making sure that everyone had a chance to talk about it - and that we gave sufficient advanced notice on the meeting for Jan. However, the discussion really didn't happen and I've done a really poor job of coordinating and publicizing the meeting.

In consulting with others - there are two opinions on how to move forward.

TCDrupal Quarterly Coordinating Committee

Our quarterly coordinating committee was scheduled for tomorrow night. However, given the following circumstances, I'd like to propose we postpone this meeting until January.

1) I completely fell down on the job and failed to provide adequate notification/reminders of this meeting.
2) I know that neither Drew Gorton or Barry Madore will be able to attend, both of whom have an interest in our primary agenda item - I'm unsure of who else will be able or unable to attend.

RSVP for "TC Drupal Goes to Roller Derby"

Based on what was shaping up to be a poor turnout at the December bout, I have successfully changed our VIP section reservation to the February bout. This is actually going to be fairly awesome, because it's the home team semi-finals, so it should be a pretty exciting night.

So our new roller derby outing date is ** Saturday, February 7, 2015. ** Get it on your calendar now!
