Suggestion box and bugs!
« on: February 28, 2017, 14:37:04 PM »
Hello everyone!

We are likely to have some teething issues and possibly some suggestions for things we want in the site.

If you have suggestions, please let us know here. We can discuss and will aim to give a "yes no maybe" based on whether it's possible and how long it might take.

If you spot a bug, such as a problem with the forum software or how something looks, please post it here for the time being. Please also include the following:

1. What the problem is (provide a screenshot if it's visual)
2. What you expected to see
3. What browser you're using, with Version.
4. What device you're using.

Thank you very much, hopefully there won't be too many problems!

I'm registered but not 'approved' yet so presumably can't do my donation yet.  I seem to be able to wander round and have a look.  How long will my approval take?

Not really a bug, just to mention... When you post, sometimes (or maybe it is always) ones you press 'post' it accepts it but then takes you out of that thread.

Have just noticed that this message comes up at the top of the screen from time to time. Everything seems to work OK though.

I believe you are fully approved!

I had trouble logging in and found it to be a Chrome issue. Now that I access the forum through Explorer no problem at all. Just thought this might help others having problems in Chrome.

I'm using Chrome and it's ok for me...

My username doesn't really fit the little box next to my posts - what a shame.  Any way of changing that?  I also notice some have the little circle on one line then their name underneath, presumably again due to limited space?
Not really a major problem, it just upsets my "ocd"!!

Mine too!

Noted and will likely be adjusted this evening. The online symbol will probably move to sit in the top corner of everyone's avatar.

Thanks.  I should have chosen a short, snappy username shouldn't I?  ::)
And I've now found the "quote" button  :D
