• Hi Guest, The forum will be moving hosts on 26 July and as such will be closed from Midday until the move has completed.
    As we will be with new hosts it may take a while before DNS get updated so it could take while before you can get back on the forum.
    I think it will take at least 4 hours but could easily be 48!

  • There seems to be a problem with some alerts not being emailed to members. I have told the hosts and they are investigating.

  • Sorry for the ongoing issues that you may have been experiencing whilst using the forum lately

    It really is frustrating when the forum slows down or Server Error 500 pops up.

    Apparently the hosts acknowledge there is a problem.
    Thank you for using our services and sorry for the experienced delay!
    Unfortunately, these errors are due to a higher server load. Our senior department knows about the issue and they are working towards a permanent resolution of the issue, however, I'd advise you to consider using our new cPanel cloud solutions: https://www.tsohost.com/web-hosting


    I will have to investigate what the differences are with what We have know compared to the alternative service they want us to migrate to.
    Keep safe.

To PM or not to PM, that is the question.

The forum has been going great guns lately with some excellent sharing of ideas and open discussions, which lets face it, is what a good forum should be all about.

I have made my thoughts clear on PM's in the past and I would prefer to disable the ability to PM, but I have come to realise they do have fulfil a need, and are useful in the occasions when a public posting of the content is not relevant to the forum.

However, it is clear that some members still seem keen to want to take discussions away from the forum and ask questions by PM rather than posting openly on the forum. If a post on the forum has prompted your question then surely you should ask it on the forum and not by PM.

Old habits are hard to break but I think we are moving in the right direction, for example compare the openness of some of the posts that are being made about VDW to those made on other forums a few years ago!

In closing, I would like to ask all members to pause briefly before sending a PM to consider why they are sending it and not making a post on the forum.

All the Best

Members do not necessarily know other members emails H.
Re Panda it is a free site they are based in Australia and I can't see any issue in having a link to it, perhaps you could enlighten me as what the issue is, preferably in a new thread or a PM:whistle:

No rog, to be honest I am just fed up with the constant snipes. But don't let that stop your fun.:obscene-buttred:
As a life long Tottenham fan you have to have a sense of humour:gotcha: It just wears a little thin when you get the same old same old all the time.
