I've received none at all.

Obs - I could be wrong, but I think probably Daniel values the current membership highly and would be concerned by any attempt to lure members away. I don't think he has any problem with posting links in the way we always have.

Rosemummy.....I think the consensus is to be patient and give them a chance to put things right.

I don't see why you can't just post the link for all to see.

This is a free forum and, while I have been very grateful for the service it provides, it is not a censored forum and we have no contract other than to observe rules about politeness etc.   We are allowed to post links to useful sites.

See original post

 Ah but (there's always a but) I quote from Daniel's post addressed to me two days ago:

"That said, we are a business and I'm afraid we're not willing to offer a platform for people to freely exchange links to other forums. Any user of this site is quite at liberty to use any other site or forum that they wish, but it isn't our job to promote them. So, I must respectfully request that you refrain from posting any further links. Any other links will be removed. I'm sorry if that seems draconian."

Awful new format for forum

Quite right, Topbird.....mine is a desktop, I prefer a full-size keyboard.

Following last night's intervention by Daniel, I feel more confident that the irksome issues will be addressed.

Could I just say for the benefit of those who are troubled by the size of text and don't already know, you can change text size to suit your needs by holding down your control key and rotating the mouse wheel.

Hi, GD

Trust me 5 years is a life time in technology....and to be honest, even I could see that some aspects needed updating.

I bank online with one of the major banks and they too have changed their website to accommodate portable devices and it looks very much like this doesn't really please me and me old desktop, but I'm getting used to it.

Hi, Daniel

With respect, my reason for starting this thread wasn't to lure anyone away from this forum, just to make known an alternative. For what it's worth I (and many others) are here as a result of an invitation posted by you on the old BBC forum.....we haven't moved the goalposts.

As I have said previously, this forum is unique and would be difficult to relocate elsewhere.

Good luck with addressing the present problems.

When I suggested a new forum, I had in mind something like this:

Not difficult to set up, but needs commitment to administer.
