An update on the remaining technical issues with the forum:
We've bundled the separate issues (spellchecker, notifications, edit and quote tools, problems uploading avatar) into one support 'ticket', with the aim of implementing all the fixes in one go. Our helpdesk manager tells me that developers will spend time on it this week and next.
As usual, once fixes are found, they need to enter a period of testing to ensure they work across different plantforms, operating systems and browsers. So, on that basis, we'd expect the fixes to go live on the site within two to two-and-a-half weeks. Please bear in mind that is dependent on the scale of the work, but that's the information I have at present.
It would be nice to get it all sorted quicker than this, but please be assured it's being dealt with. So, let's grit our teeth a little longer - a more stable forum shouldn't be too far away!
Thanks for your patience, as ever.
