Update on improvements to forum

Just catching up - sounds like good news.  Look forward to seeing the Thursday/Friday changes.  Really appreciate the efforts the team are making to get the site back on track ......as others have said, there wouldn't have been such a passionate reaction if we didn't all love this place so much.


Hope that with hindsight the uproar will be taken as a compliment

Some of mine don't have flower spikes yet Helen.  But plenty of time for them to get going yet. Apart from the last couple of days, its been quite a cold spring, which might hold them back a bit.
