As I've previously said, I like the "new" MHF and think it's a great improvement on where MHF had latterly got to. People seem to forget that there were numerous issues with the previous site and that it had got too cumbersome for Nuke to manage. There were endless moans and then a number of issues with site crashes and malware from recollection. I think Nuke did absolutely the right thing by selling the site to a larger organisation better able to manage it. I don't blame him for joining other forums - he probably wants to get away from all the moans on this one.

I agree Peter mostly, the site has definitely improved, but it still has some issues, some I've not spotted so it's not just me.

Nuke should have done a bit of research on who he was selling to I think, maybe he did and still went for it, I don't know, not saying he shouldn't have sold it, that was a good move, but how would you feel if your neighbour was all smiles then sold his house to a drug dealer etc, while smiling over the fence.

As for getting away from the moans, sorry but they were self inflicted, first by trying to add to much functionality half of which was ill advised, then for failing to sort out his own cock ups.

The above is not intended to inflame things, just a point of view, like it or hate it, we're all entitled to have a view on how it was all managed, as we are all still paying for it.

I agree Kev that we are all entitled to our views on this and that there are some deficiencies with the new site that need correcting. However in the absence of knowing what alternatives Nuke had, I think he should be given the benefit of the doubt. Whatever we might think of the new site owners, it must surely be preferable to the site having been allowed to collapse or worse - sold to Fun!

In any event I think that these posts are better made in threads within the Subs Lounge - I thought that that was suggested and generally accepted recently in either this thread or another one?

I don't see any reason to put it in the subs lounge Peter, it's just idle chat, nothing controversial, and very late in the day too, speaking of which recent events would not have lasted very long on fun or anywhere else, members would have been kicked of promptly, or at least told to behave.

Anyway, I'm very bored of discussing VS on any level now, it seems they're going to do nothing, so pointless, I was just posting the reply in the correct thread hopefully, no more to be gained.

Hi
I have been trying to get my membership number for sometime now but so far without success. I have sent emails using various email addresses but no reply. What is the right email address of the administrator or someone handling the subscriptions? Is there a phone number?
I am a paid subscriber and live in the UK.
thanks

If you log into the old site, on the right hand side you will find your details including your membership, which begins with MHF.

I did try that but no membership number on it which is very strange. I log on to my account and states my subscription runs out in May 2016, it is really strange!!!!. Not only that sometimes I get messages telling me to subscribe when I am a subscriber already, my username gpg1963
Thanks
