    Have you not learned from last time? ;)

    Everyone - forum will be down until 2017. Possibly sooner, if you're good.

    Will it actually fix anything or just make it worse afterwards?

    And if we were actually paying customers, they'd probably take this into account. When you get something for free, you generally have to accept it as-is.

    Oh yeah, hadn't noticed that. If we don't say anything they might not take it offline again.
  • I only noticed as wanted to go into user cp and check text size.

    Me too, that was my concern. Everything seems to work apart from accessing my account :?

    How do you know I didn't post your post pretending to be you? Or even you mine pretending to be me? :shock:

    It's a good job I haven't taken any LSD since the 80's, that would've had me in a right state :lol:

    Edit:
    And I get this when quoting, but the post appears anyway
    SQL ERROR [ mysqli ]

    Out of range value for column 'item_id' at row 1 [1264]

    An SQL error occurred while fetching this page.

    No error from phone, only from my PC.

    I wish developers would stop creating mobile versions designed for phones with much smaller screens than we now have. Just give me the desktop version.

    Mmm. Couple of issues

    - I get an error message for me when posting, but the posts appear later.

    -I'd exceeded my login attempts after one try, where I'd used the correct username and password (its saved on my browser).

    - Well its now in a font from 1986.....

    - Oh and there are some real weirdos on the forum. Was it like that before?

    VHS was more popular than Beta. Didn't mean that it was better.
    It is equally obsolete today.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.
