    Them techie types keep faffing about with it, seems to change every couple of days... I just shout if there's something I don't like and they make it better! I think it's Attention Deficit Disorder, they just can't stop poking!!!

        Sounds like proper engineers in the making......... it's working fine, better take it apart quick and
        A) find out why,
        B) see if we can make it better some how and
        C) having managed that wondering what to do with all these left over parts that plainy where in there at the begining but arent now yet somehow it's still working ?!!!

              Clearing things up

              Right, to clear up any confusion, there has been some twiddling and tweaking here and there, which is a result of conversations amongst mods and admins.

              General agreed principles are:
              1. Try and keep the number of sub-forums to as few as possible (not everyone has a 24" widescreen monitor!)
              2. Try and put posts in forums where they make most sense being (dodgy English there...!)
              3. Try and keep the permissions such that everyone feels relaxed about what they post (keeping guests out)

              So this was a more significant shift than before, because there was a small relatively inactive forum with stuff in it that most of could happily go in one; and the rest happily in another.

              So we've got a forum for things relevant to people who are trying to get into the MN; and one for things relevant to people who are already in.

              The multimedia and blog things are sort of testing the water for things that could be done in future. It seems like people enjoy putting pics and youtubes up.

              The Hello forum seems nice and active. Maybe a couple like the "links" and "guidelines" are surplus to requirements, but I sort of think of them as "placeholders" much like the news, blogs and multimedia bits.

              So it's just been a spring clean with input from several people, not just me flying solo.
              I don't think this will be happening again for a long while... we just need to make sure the forum is active and doing what people want it to do... change is inevitable!


              P.S. I certainly enjoy a bit of poking, but I regard this as more sort of "breaking in"... we need people to shout out when they like or dislike something... as Size4 and Steve have.

              P.P.S. I left the name of the shifted forum the same "Invisible Questions" to try and minimise confusion...

              P.P.P.S. The pub (forum) is the perfect place for leftovers
