Hello Irenejanine. I'm sorry for this problem - it's related to a technical problem we're having with the forum. We've currently got a developer working on a fix. The competition is definitely still open, so rest assured you will be able to enter it - hopefully today! Apologies again.

Forum up the creek

Hello everyone,

I'm very sorry for the current problems with the forum. There seems to be an issue with the caching of temporary site files, which the tech team are currently looking into. Hopefully they'll get to the bottom of the issue and implement a fix shortly. Thank you for bearing with us.

Hello KEF,

Thanks for clarifying. Given that you had no problems signing in on Sunday, I'm hopeful the problems you had earlier were just a 'blip'. The only way to confirm that is to log out and attempt to sign in again - if you do have any further problems please let me know and I'll ask someone on the tech team to look into it for you.

Hello KEF,

Please accept my apologies for the problem you had signing in - I'm pleased that you were were eventually able to access your account. blackest is correct that the input field is case sensitive, so it could be that you had the caps lock on when you were having problems?

If you have any further difficulties, do please let us know.

What is description

Posted: 08/05/2013 at 17:10

Hello Blueboots,

The description field is optional - it's the short text that appears beneath the thread name in the thread listing pages, such as 'Latest posts' and 'New discussions'. It's intended to provide a little more detail than is given in the thread name, to help other users decide if the thread will be of interest to them.

You should now find the speed issues have been resolved. We've been monitoring performance this afternoon and it seems much better. We'll keep an eye on things, though.

Video projects and other project categories

Hello everyone,

There is temporary problem with the pagination in our project category pages, meaning you cant see the page numbers to navigate between pages. This will be fixed next week, but in the meantime hear is a workaround to enable to see all of the pages within any categories:

When you can see the first page of a category, such as:

You can navigate to the next page in the sequence by typing /2/ at the end, e.g.

Just keep doing that until you reach the last page in the sequence. This will work in any sub-category, such as

Not ideal, I know, but it will enable you to see all the pages in any category until the developers fix this early next week.
