I have been advised by the system administrator that, and I quote, "everything nearly seems to sort of work". We will therefore be opening our doors properly at 08:00 hours on Wednesday 1st March at which point all the members who have registered but not yet be able to post will be able to use the forum.
Be excellent to one another

Hello. Congratulations on the new site.
I've got five minutes then off to work, so don't break it whilst I'm gone.
Whoop whoop, party time!

Ooh, did someone mention champagne?Thanks to all involved for their work in producing this new forum, it's very much appreciated.
I'll be taking a proper stroll around once I struggle out of my warm cosy duvet... (with apologies to those who have to get up and go to work!)

Hi All!!  ;D

I'm wandering round with a plate of canapes and a bottle of champagne. 

Lovely to see you!

  Hi Rubywishes - I just discovered that under "Profile" you can select local time, and the function to auto-detect the time difference did work.
