I've been on this forum for almost ten years, have always tried to be an active part of this forum, have always enjoyed reading project threads and reading up on issues other members have.
My appreciation goes to Red for his hard work and dedication in keeping this forum running for as long as it has been. Also, my thanks go to other staff members for helping to keep things on the straight and narrow.
When the forum was updated to it's new current look, I was very impressed - It now looks more clean and modern. But, this is not saying that Red had not kept the forum 'up to date'. I have used the software the forum used to run on (with a lot of Reds help!) and know it is not easy making it in to something it does not start out to be.
When I read the forum was under 'new ownership' I was slightly disappointed but I am not afraid of change and things happen for a reason. I also understand with the forum being moved over to the new software things will be out of place and there would be teething problems.
I am disappointed with the lack of response regarding some things. It was asked some time ago if we edit old posts so we can keep our own threads up to date with broken pictures, weblinks etc., which was responded to but no resolution was either forthcoming or any explanation as to whether it was possible.
I received a private message asking if I would help to support the forum with a paid subscription/donation. I am not against that but I thought the request was a little 'cheeky' considering we had asked for some issues to be resolved which up to this post, are still outstanding.
I also find it disappointing that our requests to be able to edit our old posts has gone ignored/unresolved but yet when a member raises an issue with not being able to make a payment/donation that posts gets a very quick response/reply.
Maybe the new 'owner' of this forum has taken on this site to make money then that's the way it is... if it works, great although it would show where the sites priorities are now.
OK.. I said my piece.
It would be good if we could get a definitive answer as to whether we can edit ANY of our old/existing posts. I think that really that question has one of 3 answers...
3. Yes but there would be the following restrictions...
