Broken Forum

Regular visitors will know that we've had Forum problems recently.

I'm working with Darren to get things back up and running. It might be intermittent for a while but I'm getting there. This Forum is too invaluable to lose!

If you see any problems and want to contact me, email: hussar1420@gmail.com

The site seems to be working for me again, so I've nicked the last entry in almost all current topics. Shortly I shall try to add some foto's and up date you on our big tour ... couple of surprises in store there :shock:

Thanks Bob, good that you are still with us and keeping this site alive for those of us who get so much out of it. Not forgetting all who work so hard on our behalf, especially Darren & Ferdy.

Thought: perhaps you could send an e-mail to all registered members, who might well have given up trying to log in, then they might look in again and give us all their latest news ...

Mick, sorry to hear that your sight is fading and knowing your love of dogs, have you thought of getting a guide dog, even if you don't need it yet. Then you could show it you favourite walks and the dog will then know where to take you should things get worse and, at least, you will still be able to enjoy the fresh air and the sounds of wind and water and the birds singing and the sweet smell of blossem. Enjoy every day !!

Bill,

Good to be back in touch.

This Forum, and the website too, have suffered from a lack of maintenance which I'm addressing on behalf of Paul (Chairman) and Darren.

Facebook versus Forum

There is no reason why our members and visitors can't use both, but there has been a huge migration over to FB and Twitter of late and, in my opinion, that is not a good state of affairs. My reasons:
  • FB is fly-by-night - post now and your post can disappear into the ether in a short time. Forum is permanent.
    FB is searchable - but only just. Forum is searchable in any number of ways.
    FB is random - Forum is ordered
    FB is hacked often, and can have a large security impact. Forum can be hacked, but we're not a great target with not much impact.
I'd love to see the Forum return to the activity level it enjoyed in the days of Quassi. It's unlikely to happen but there's no reason why we shouldn't move in that direction. It just needs us to attract users back and for current Users to become more active in Topics and Posts.

Email? I'm working on it. :)

My understanding is that PM's sit in your Outbox until they are read. The Member will have been notified but either has not seen the Notification or is choosing to ignore you :D

Had a report that format of the website is not good on a mobile phone - but it's okay on my household's Androids and iPhone. Can you please try it and let me know:
