  • This Forum perverse
    Is becoming a curse
    We were promised improvement
    But there's not much movement
    For going from bad to verse?

    With apologies to the city of Limerick. LOL
    As you can tell I'm no poet

    We have reasons for you to go against this, very valid reasons - I am not being trivial about this, the ease of uploading viewable pictures is very important.

    We all know we have reasons, we just have no voice. We were promised improvements - the only Improvement I have seen over the last Forum is the ability to upload multiple pictures. Sadly that ability is well and truly negated by the pathetic thumbnail default picture size.

    Once again tweaks are being introduced that would appear to have had no testing for "obvious" side effects.

  • Sadly I foresaw this when the new changes where announced, just like the last changes approx 4-5 years ago and sadly the same thing has happened again with this change. This is not an improvement, it’s gone backward in use of ease and far more complicated to use.



  • The only way I can get Rich Formatting to work on a thread is to reply to the original post on that thread, then it seems to work without any problem.
    I'm sure it wasn't like this a few days ago.
    When you click on Rich Formatting anywhere else on the thread is says "page not found and page no longer exists."

    as was mentioned on this thread earlier.

    Click the reply ONE BEFORE the last post .i.e
    If I want to use 'Rick format 'here...
    I would reply to THOMO and not you

    Saving you going back to beginning... Doh! maddening....


  • Thanks for that one, just tried it and as you say it works.
    However this means that you can't "quote" the post you want to if it's the last one.
    I'm sure it's an easy fix

    At the moment if you want to reply and quote the last post is write a reply,post it then go back and edit it, you should then be in Rick Formatting!!!
