Sorry, Dave.
I've just been entertaining the neighbours with some Lynyrd Skynyrd and got carried away :headbang:

Out of interest, is it possible with this site to have the search bar perminantly displayed....

Illori has now put it back on the site.  We are going to make the 'Search' button black again, but in bold font so that can be found easily too.  Any objections?

I can only really agree with what has been said so far, in that this is a great forum and by far the friendliest I have ever been on. Whilst I been on some other great non railway related forums I would say on all of them you have to put up with some bitching and rudeness from time to time. Just seems to be what happens when you get a large number of people together with differing opinions. It shouldn't be like that as the idea is to have people with different ideas but to talk about them openly and embrace the differences.
Anyway this forum does all that and more.

If I were to have a slight niggle it is just in the way pictures are uploaded and what you have to do to add pictures to posts. Hopefully now I have mastered the way it is done but do find that it is a much more long winded way of doing it that on many other forums.

Thanks very much Steve.

Yes the software for the pictures is a good idea, but just isn't quite right.  When funds permit I'll look into changing it to integrate better.

Just watched them do  'Last of a Dyin Breed' on their site. Brilliant stuff!  :D

Sounds good to me.  What you can do at the moment is set up 'Ultimate Profile' which is an advanced version of the normal profile.  You can put in your own pictures or text. 

Click my profile icon on the left to have a look at mine and think if it can be adapted to what you're thinking.  If not, let me know.

That looks perfect. I've never seen peoples 'Ultimate Profiles' before.
Can you create your own headings to inclued 'My Layout'?
How do you create your own 'Ultimate Profile'?
Thanks
David

I need to write a tutorial about it, as I stupidly never explained it fully to people.  Click this link for the basics on setting it up.

If you can give your views or possible improvements for the forum then I'd be very grateful

I wonder if it might be possible to offer the option of listing messages in reverse order i.e. most recent first, when reloading a previously read thread? This would be a great help to those of us condemned to rural dial-up, like me but not from choice, especially when there are lots of pictures posted in a thread.

you can set that option in your profile under look and layout  "Show most recent posts at the top."

that would apply to all threads not just ones you have read in the past.
