"I firmly believe Dove is an administrator on the forum despite Daniel's public denial of it."

Once again: Dove is not an administrator on this site. Never has been, never will be. We don't have any volunteer moderators on gardenersworld.com.

An open letter to Daniel

Hello Verdun,

There's been no change in the administrative structure of the forum - it's managed within the web team, as it always has been. We don't have any volunteer moderators. This is all overseen by Nora, as Community Manager (covering forum and all social media activity). We (the web team) all receive any moderation alerts that come in. So, no change.

I stand with Pansyface

Posted: 05/06/2016 at 16:16

Hello everyone,

First, as stated in her post earlier I’m in contact with pansyface directly about the events of the last few days, so that conversation is continuing.

Second, I’m extremely sorry for the alarm caused both to pansyface and to everybody else on the forum who feels that we’ve been unduly harsh. There was never any intention to implement a ‘ban’, simply a temporary ‘cool off’ period, while we attempted to resolve matters directly.

We always deal with people directly about site moderation issues, rather than on the forum (which is entirely routine practice). On this occasion, we went about it in entirely the wrong way and we should have posted something sooner.

I’m not going to go into any more detail here - that is something I’ll address directly with pansyface. I would like to add, though, that we absolutely are committed to improving the accessibility, as documented in my earlier update posts. More on that score shortly.

Hello Muddle-Up,

Apologies for this - it certainly shouldn't be happening. Rory on the GW web team will be in touch with you directly via email to sort this out

Hello everyone, Apologies for the problems that some of you encountered with the background graphic over the weekend. This was part of an ad campaign that was running on Saturday and Sunday - it should now be back to normal. It seems there were also some other formatting glitches connected with this, so I’ll follow up with the team about these.

Re: any other issues - if you’ve been directly in touch with Nora over specific problems she’ll pick up any messages once she’s back in tomorrow. She’s at Chelsea today, battling an erratic wireless signal!

Hello everyone,

I’m pleased to let you know that ‘pinch and zoom’ has now been re-enabled for tablet and smartphone. This applies to the whole page, so you’ll be able to enlarge text as well as images. You can pinch back in to restore the standard ‘mobile’ layout.

On desktop / laptop screens you can right-click to open the full-size image in a new browser tab (if you’re on a Mac desktop/laptop and you don’t have right-clicking enabled you can switch it on within ‘Settings’).

Hopefully that will now work for you as expected - do please let us know if not.
