5.30am - that's pretty hardcore! You're obviously made of sterner stuff than I am, WonkyWomble. Very impressive.

Re: not being able to post pictures, have you submitted your details via Support Details yet? If not, the process is very quick and simple here:

It will take an instant snapshot of operating system, browser etc - all you have to do is input name, email address and our email address - - where prompted.

Many thanks

Hello everyone,

I'm sure you'll be delighted to know that the pigeon droppings have now all gone (I wasn't shirking, Fairygirl!).

Dove - no ginger ale left, sadly.

Obelixx - thanks for the best wishes and for the feedback on visibility of threads and like / useful buttons

Tetley - the rubbishness of the notifications feature is on the agenda for the meeting tomorrow!

KEF - thanks for the thought. I've had such a list of dreary chores to work through today that being on the forum has come as a rather welcome respite...

I'll still be around on and off this evening, if anyone has any further comments / questions.

Posy says:

Daniel, I wonder if Michael means he is not getting notifications when people respond to a thread he has contributed to? I am not, although the correct box is ticked.

See original post

 Ah, yes, good point - thanks Posy.

Michael: if that's the case, the rather erratic behavious of the notifications feature is already on the list for further investigation. (It's never been very stable, so I really much hope it's something that can be cracked this time around.)

Right, everyone - I'm nipping out to the supermarket, then I've got to scrape pigeon droppings off a windowsill (outside, not inside I hasten to add).

Please keep the comments / questions / expressions of intense anger coming and I'll pick them up later.

Thanks Hazel - that's much appreciated. 

I think it's fair to say that this hasn't been our finest week, but thank you for bearing with us.

That's my approach, yes.

Thanks 8000wildflowers - that's great to know. I might take a snapshot of your post and have it framed - it will be good for team morale!

Fairygirl - Ha! Yes, I favour the links at the top as well as the bottom of the page. The one issue with that is that it adds even further to the amount of vertical space that people dislike so much. It is something that Vicki, our designer, has already looked at though, so I'm looking forward to the update tomorrow.

hollie hock and dove - thanks for further input on like / useful. I'll ask about the feasibility (in the context of the other more pressing changes) of both options at our 'summit' with the techies tomorrow.
