    critch Aye lad, I knew you had it in you

    Is "i" becoming the new "s" in scrabble? I believe soon we'll be able to prefix nearly every word with "i" as a cunning way of accumulating points quickly! A bit like the pluralising with an "s"!

    Well try when you do next post. Just go in afterwards and try to edit and see what you get in the box. I get nothing.

    I wondered whether there might be a call for a 'Message' section? ie where a message could be left for someone to view (and being open to others to comment, rather than using the personal messaging)? Often these may come up in a thread but the person one may want to view it may not read that thread.

    Also, any chance of having that winky icon back on the main panel? Only I do find I want to often 'wink' when I'm using Opera, but it only lets me use the main ones. The ones in 'more' won't post for some reason...? Ta.

    You can do a wink by entering a ";" then a ")" like this: ;)

    I don't like the idea of the message section. I don't really think it adds any value over and above PMs or emails and I am trying not to clutter the place up with too many forums as I know that tends to dilute too much. I think that if you particularly want someone to read a thread you have written, you should send them a PM telling them so :)

    Okay. But why are there two of the same bored smilies on the main one? Or there were! One of those could be a winky!:)

    I've done a bit of re-jigging of the smilies.

    Smile and the world will smile with you

    I love these smiley thingies! Sometimes I prefer them to the main course of the messages as an aperitif or hors d'oeuvres. Don't suppose you can find a cat type of one on your travels?

    Oooooh! New smilies! Yay!

    But I can't think of a single reason why this could possibly be useful - :piggy:

    :biggrin:

    Paul, I know I've asked this before but forgotten answer and where it was! Sorry.

    It was about being able to see at a glance what the last half dozen or so posts were. Someone, I think Chris, mentioned as an aside in a post awhile ago that he had missed something earlier as another thread in that forum had superceded it. When there's quite a lot of posting it is really easy to miss things. There used to be a list on the main page but that seemed to go in the reshuffle.

    I tried that and it worked once. Then tried again and it came up with a no matches?

    Well, if there are no unread messages, that's what you get.

    If you want all messages posted in the last 24 hours you can use http://www.stormcock.net/vb/search.php?do=getdaily

    All of this depends on you being logged in of course.

    Ohhh...maybe that's it then, I wasn't logged in. But why can't you view whether or not you are?

    If you're not logged in, how is it meant to know who you are and thus what you have and haven't seen?

    I've put an experimental "Recent Forum Posts" box on the front page, I'm just a bit worried about it using up too much space. Feedback appreciated. I've also put a forum at the top here that gets fed with front-page items from the main web site. I've done this because I think there are a lot of people that only look at the forums and so might miss "important" stuff (podcasts mainly at the moment but potentially tour news, release info etc).

    Paul.

    The forum posts are showing as blog posts here. Or is that just a try-out?

    I assume you mean "Music News" items on the front page. Yes, that's an experiment also :)

    Favorite site!

    But I'm easily impressed by anything Roy Harper!
    (Have I already made that clear?)

    Actually, I think I've equaled all my posts on other non-commercial sites combined. I'm still figuring this one out. I've been trying to Quote other posts to save confusion.

    Thanks, PD, and keep up the good work!
