I used to look at the forum every day but recently (last year or so) it's only been occasionally when I remember about it (hence coming late to this thread). This is because, as Neil alluded tod, it seems to have become more of a buying and selling platform rather than a discussion forum and there don't seem to have been very many meaty topics for people to vent.. er, talk about recently. Even the dropping of the Engilsh Match from the Olympics doesn't seem to have got much attention. Two or three years ago there might have been a couple of pages-worth of posts on that. Maybe all the interesting things have already been talked out.

 

BUT, having said that, there is definitely a place for this forum as it is. By all means integrate it further into the twitface world (won't make any difference to me), but as long as the opportunity remains for knowlegeable people to expound and share their views and expertise with others and provide the opportunity for others to ask questions, then it should keep going much as it is. As someone said, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Meaty topics will occur, just can't predict when.

 

I agree with the poster who said it's a useful archive. I've looked up old posts more than once for info I'd forgotten but knew it was here somewhere.

 

Put the 'donate' button back by all means.

Looking good, Neil.

Maybe you could set the dates to be UK format (d/m/y & dd mmm)?

I've modified the language template and think that should be it now, can you refresh and check?

Thanks

Thanks John

I'll get the donate button up when I can but in the middle of some large projects and also trying to train towards the upcoming Comm Champs .. not enough hours in the day!

What happened to the favicon, Neil? I miss its friendly little indicator on the browser tab.
