FFS, enough with the snarky comments, please. I do my best here, but if you want to make a better Beatles forum, go right ahead.

Skye - not wishing to bamboozle you with tech stuff, but here's a list of bug fixes and other changes (really, I wouldn't bother).

Hehe, I just skimmed it. Admins now have a section in the members list, so that's something. And smileys in post edits - nice!

If you tried to access the site and found it offline, apologies. According to my server admin, it was due to a Debian 5 and 6 clash (no, me neither). Should be OK now but I'll keep an eye on things.

OK, I spoke to soon, as it went offline again straight after. It may have been a DDoS attack, or something more benign due to the server config. We're keeping an eye on things but if it goes offline again we may have to restructure the server setup.

Oh, I put up a poll on the homepage yesterday. Just a trial, though I might do more with them over time. If you're not bored with elections, go and cast your vote.

It's only a bit of fun, but I can add more - including to to this forum - if people want them. Unfortunately I'm the only one who can create them - it'd be nice to allow forum users to create their own, but this isn't possible currently.

Ok, I keep trying to go on the forum but sometimes it just will not load and I have to x out the window. It works for a while after that, but then it will just happen again. It might just be my computer, but it was also sort of happening on my laptop too, so I was just wondering if it just me or the site. Anybody else have this happening to them?

Ok I will. It was also happening on other sites so I think it is just my computer.

I'd like to welcome our new moderators, Mithveaen and Zig! I'm sure you'll make them welcome a-hard-days-night-george-10

I needed new mods as I'll be on paternity leave shortly, and it's didn't want Skye to have to do it all.

It was trust? Really? He told me he put everyone's name on a dart board, put on a blindfold, then...

Oh well, no matter. I'm just happy to help.

It's going to be classic case of irony when you first use this, Zig:

stay-on-topic

 

Ha ha! Nah, Mith and Zig, I can't imagine two better choices. :)

That's what I told mr. S - now I can ban myself the next time I say something stupid.

Thanks, StarWisher! Would it be pretentious of me to change my screen name to Zig, MBBF? Does that qualify as saying somethiing stupid?

Sure, go ahead and do that, Zig…and then you can renounce the MBBF when "Cold Turkey" slips down the charts!a-hard-days-night-john-6 

Hahaha. Anyways, congratulations new mods! And best wishes to Joe & Ellie
