PS Why when I reply to you, but not when I reply to anyone else, does my reply come within the quotes box?
 


No idea, it does that sometimes..... Covid-19?!

  If it does, you have 30 re-edit time,  modify and add  [/quote]
  before your response.

No, it's important we get this right TF, how about:

1. Must not be listed for sale in both "Mayhem for Sale"  and  "My Sale Elsewhere", topics at the same time.
   ( Ask Mods to remove any previous sales if required  )




That looks fine.    :-)) :-)) :-))


PS Having done a few tests the problem of answers appearing in your quote is related to the Firefox  need to press the end "A" formatting button.

Thought so, not just Firefox as I'm on Android now. It's just Martin's posts where it's automatically bubbled when you quote (anything with content from Martin).  Not a big hardship to go back and edit though the 30min limit is a strange quirk.

Things might be a bit wobbly for next few hours here on Mayhem, because Binden got elected, because we're moving to a shiny new server!   :-)

No, I kicked up a small  fuss and they refunded the renewal straight away so I could buy the correct server.  %)

 HostForWeb certainly don't make things easy for you....  same story 98% focus on new business, 1% on existing customers, 1% on customer service.....  {:-{

I know you have a large file base/database but every time my hosting comes up I check the costs and if I consider it too high I look to change to a new one.

I was with Just Host and it cost me 100 for two years with unlimited bandwidth, databases etc. When the renewal came it was 261.81 for 2yrs, so I let it go as I couldn't be bothered to upload the files etc to a new host at that time. Then the next renewal came in for 392 for 1 yr.

This time I wasn't going to sit back so did some shopping around and got 3yrs hosting for 163 from Hostgator, as I only did it this year I have a while before the renewal comes back again.

I found out after that Just Host & Hostgator are owned by the same company 'Endurance International Group'

What never ceases to amaze me is that if they gave reasonable renewal costs some people just might stay where they are, this goes for all services provided to us, including phones, TV, insurances etc...as the saying goes 50% 0f something is better than 100% of nothing.

OK off the soap box now  %%

Funnily enough, it is something to do with Hotmail... but never worked it out....  {:-{

 Hopefully this new server will give us more security options.

Generally due to some of the photos on the forum are hosted by unsecure sites. The forum itself is https and secure but some of the photos come from external sites. Chrome seems to be rather sensitive about this, Firefox less so.Jim
