Daniel yes I've been critical and deservedly so, but I'll be one of the first I hope to shower praise, when, not if, you get it right.

Thanks Dave! We'll do our best not to disappoint.

A three-room basement? You should just go the whole hog and open a nightclub! Charge for admission...

Thanks for Support Details submission - we certainly have plenty to chew over for the coming week!

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 - website@gardenersworld.com - 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.

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.

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!
