Re: Boost to forum membership

What's with all the redundant formatting guff when posting a quote?

Re: Boost to forum membership

Usually when you quote someone the member you are quoting is talking shît. The forum software recognises this at makes it look like shît.

Quality forum software over here. No Farrow and Ball coloured fonts either.

You see it works.

Ingenious

If you reach 10,000 posts like Chancer and Norman you can quote correctly.

New or returning members would be welcome indeed, especially as two of our more useful and elder friends, Norman and Mint seem to have disappeared.
Which is very sad.
Ticking over, just about.

I think Mint is a tad under the weather.

Norman is busy filming the next James Bond movie.

Gowan FE members, come over here for laugh.

Re: K-rap forum

It is indeed a great opportunity but very few will return or remain for any length of time unless this forum sorts out its new and enhanced user experience, people want to be able to quote, include links, add images, all things that are broken here.

 

Today, and it has happened before it wont allow me to post a reply, opens the page but the cursor wont go into the message box and nothing can be typed, takes up to 5 minutes before it lets me and editting the title like I have done here sometimes clears the bug.

 

I joined the other place after a new and enhanced user experience ruined this one and drove most contributors away, the other place was and is still far more frequented, then they did the same software upgrade *** up, then there was Brexit and 18 months of often hate filled posts and the pulling of the plug was inevitable.

 

I remained faithfull here because the vast majority are decent and helpfull and not out to score points or belittle others, however the  mental effort and playing around involved these days in just making a posting is just too much.

Re: K-rap forum

The demise of FE was simply down to poor moderation. I appreciate the mod does it in their free time and they have been ill etc etc...but if you are not up for the job you are not up for the job. Nevile was great.

I belong to another French forum and it is brilliantly moderated. Firstly because the mod there knows everything about France and so you can't compete with her. All so because the slightest bit of friction and she sorts it out. There are no ifs or buts. Break the rules and she intervenes and if necessary the thread gets cut. I like that.

The site does not even sell magazines, property or anything.

I guess this forum will go the same way one day unless people post.

FE turned nasty with Brexit and as an outsider it was quite shocking to read. As I pointed out earlier in the thread, another post has gone up today to start more trouble. Does the Mod do anything ??? No. Why ?

Anyway I guess a lot of people will go to facebook. Personally I hate facebook. Others might go to Survive France and well, it is well moderated but.......there is that British in France...'I'm better than you syndrome'. And you have to have your full name, picture, and email a copy of your electricity bill before becoming a member. LOL.

Anyway, sort computer out Chancer. Your computer is the problem not the forum software.
