May I suggest you pull reporting of forum problems into a separate section????  I couldn't believe how hard it was to try and find this .  I know it's not essential to get access each time (it's only a forum) but it's staggering how many times I received a fault message, was trying to report in case it helped, but finding this thread now I know since is in "chit chat" eluded all attempts to try and report a fault previously?

And every time that you log on now and click the "show new replies" link, there it will be in your list of things to look at, assuming that there has been a new reply.
Perhaps if it could be "super stickied" to the top of the section?  Or bumped to the top of the pile by some other devious means and then left there?

Excuse my ignorance, but isn't this why we moved not so long ago or was that a different problem.  Keep any answers simple please!!!

We haven't moved yet.
Can't move until Site / Forum are stable and I get a good backup.
Backups are only as good as the date / time completed.
Unlikely we are going to get any refund from 12 months hosting paid in advance so need new funding for new Hosting service.
Very difficult to pick a new Host, seeing beyond the flashy advertising, promises and hearsay .....  {:-{

Seem to recall one of our 'computer literate' Mayhemers recently recommended a hosting company for us.

Suppose that was investigated and found wanting???

That worked, money sent :-))  ,


Who uses cheques these days Dave? You just need to say you've sent money via PayPal, and if it doesn't materialise, simply blame PayPal %)

Peter
A good question. I have a dedicated bank account which pays for all of my hobby purchases, and with it came a cheque book. The last three cheques have all been for my annual subscriptions to the Papplewick Trust, which runs the pool where we sail! I don't remember the last time I wrote a cheque on our main accounts either, and I seldom even carry cash these days ( except on Fridays when I visit the pub!).
Sign o' the times?

You’ll still be surprised to find out that it is mandatory for an airman to own a cheque book in RAF!
Just incase! %)
