Thanks to all those who kept the site going in the difficult months after some of us wandered into the wilderness.
Yeah! Splitter!! Some of us turn up here everyday to post mindless drivel just to keep it going. I wouldnt bother chasing to cough up a subscription just yet.

Pudsey_Bear I did say you could be funny, just stay loosely on topic, can't be that difficult, we're not giggling teenagers, also if you don't have clue about the problem don't post except maybe to say sorry I can't help to bump it up the page, I used to actively look for unanswered post on old stig otherwise they might drop of the page, and another new member thinks no one cares, it's lees of a problem now no one is posting a dozen joke threads a day, but on a busy day it can take about an hour to disappear forever.

Zebedee Nice idea Kev, but could you control yourself to that extent?

I don't think I could, and it wouldn't long before human nature took over again, and we were all having a bit of fun and enjoying each other's virtual company.

Pudsey_Bear I wonder if there would be any mileage in a strictly tech only forum (withing MHF) where everyone knows it's ok to be funny but must stay on topic.

General questions can still go anywhere as they do now, it might help for newbies as they more often than not have a problem that a search engine brought the to us.

It must be off putting to new users asking a question for it to get lost in the diatribe we sometimes get into.

Just sayin.

I also TRY to do what Dave has posted there. Hopefully, after time on here, one gets a sense of when the serious and knowledgeable answers have been posted and when it is acceptable to wander a little - of course there might be a further serious answer, because poster as on holiday/busy/off net etc., but no system is perfect and the interveneing posts might have helped to 'Bump' the thread so that that late poster sees a question he/she might have missed.

Zebedee What the others said - hope you do come back.

One small point however, in support of your comments.

Thread drift is always going to happen, unless it dies a sudden death once the original question has been answered.

That (to me) is the point at issue. I get just as irritated as you (Ian and Brock) when a sensible and earnest thread asking for help or advice is kicked off topic straight away with banaal comments and stupid jokes.

I freely confess that I'm quite good at both but hopefully not until after a thread has run its course and the OP has had the help they asked for.

It's just like a conversation in a pub really. If there was only ever sensible debate about serious topics, it would be a bit of a yawn!

Suenliam First time posting in the new format so not sure what will happen

My problem is I don't like change. Once I am used to it then all is well. Just in the transition stage at the moment and I do like the "clean" look of the new layout, but still expecting to see things in their usual place and a bit annoyed that they don't appear where I want them. My subscription is due in about a months time and last week I was not going to renew. However, today I have decided that I will soon get used to the new layout and the value of the responses on all issues is too valuable to loose so here's to another year

I just ignore the posts I don't need and skip the angry ones unless I feel like a good rammy - is that a Scots word or is it English as spoken south of the border?
