We have made the decision to move over to a more modern way of communicating using Discord. As a result, all of the forums have now been made read-only. Please click on this link https://discord.gg/XYJgnUs to open Discord in a browser. Mobile and desktop apps are also available which are really easy to use. These can be downloaded from the App stores.

We won't be sending out invites to the new server as it shouldn't be necessary. Just follow the link and create yourself as a user. Please use a name that will help us to recognise you. Nicknames are fine if that is one we all know but just initials are not ideal as that doesn't help.

Any problems let Dave B or Mark G know and we will try and sort it out.

We are now working on a new website which should be ready over the next couple of months.

Hope you enjoy the more collaborative approach. This should mean we need less WhatsApp Groups

Stuff about this forum, general housekeeping etc.

If you cannot find what you are looking for it may (eventually) be in here.

Website Upgrade

Post by MarkG » Sat Oct 14, 2017 3:56 pm

Hi Everyone,

I have been meaning to update the website for some time - which I have just done. This is the first major upgrade for some years and we had fallen behind. Unfortunatley some of the modifications I have made over the years (colour schemes and menus) had to be deleted and it will take me some time to get them back. Please be patient.

There are many reasons for the upgrade and you will find some of them as you use the new site. The biggest thing though it that the site will now work much better on a mobile as it changes its look depending on the device it is using- responsive design for those that care about such things!

Any problems - let me know.

Thanks

Mark

Unbelievable. I changed the security model on the site and it took about 3 hours before someone was trying to create a fraudulent user. I have gone back to the Q&A that I used before.

Sorry but I don't have time to mess around with spammers. :evil:
