Isn't the existing forum page on the old site - and therein lies the problem, that peoe can't get at it. So it wouldn't matter what you did, or how fancy you made the page - very few could access it.

Correct me if I'm wrong on that score.

If you can get onto the old site and look at how people put their names down for rallies you will get a good idea of what they want.

This request is one that has been made many times before. Presumably you have an system that records communications with an indidvidual site. Can I suggest that if such a system exists you consult it as well as looking at our old site.

The importance of this request cannot be understated when it comes to the future of this site. The rallies have long been an important part of the MHF community. That part is slowly diminishing and those of us that are, in practice, only visiters to check on the status of individual rallies will reduce or stop the numbers of their'hits' to do so. These so called 'hits' are, as I understand it, part of the information you give to potential advertisers. Therefore the fewer hits the more potential there is for loss of revenue for VS. The remainder of the site will be populated by the diminishing number of people who just like to chat. Now I know that you may well understand the economics of your business better than I but just in case you don't I thought I would state the obvious and give my take on it.

I have to say that I don't feel confident that VS is up to the job when they can't get the @ system working.

The original site was not able to be shoehorned into this site so at the time we did our best to maintain what was no longer supported. I am hoping I can find a way to get the software here to work for rally signups.

OK a question from a numpty....

Would it not be easier to set up a new section on the new site and give Scottie the ability to copy and paste anything that he believes is essential for 2019 as many of the posts referred to events many years ago now...

Perhaps a small team of volunteers could help Scottie migrate data - I would help provided it was feasible....

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

It seems to me it's essential it's on the new site. Otherwise people won't be able to find/access it.

Hi
I am trying desperately to get V S to set up a rally section on the new page something that I can post rallies members can reserve a place then be able to confirm their bookings something that I can edit/amend details as and when required that would be a fantastic start.

Surely, it cannot be impossible to have a new section headed "Rallies" where you can post, amend etc with a new thread for each rally and of course a front page with a calendar which is locked so that only you and organisers such as LadyJ can post on but not normal me,beers who would be able to post on the individual thread for each rally.

Surely, that cannot be too hard, after al that has been done for eg their announcements ?

VS it is time to step up and sort out...... Scottie and his crew do an immense amount of good for MHF.

I've just asked the question again using the @ system.
