Hi, hope you can advise?

Understand due to my lack of posts that I can not PM others but can I still contact the mods?

Also regarding the Buy Sell Offers part of the forum, why can I see the threads and replies when not logged in but when logged in I am told that I do not have the permissions to view the posts?
Shouldn't it be the other way round?
I know that ...

 Post subject: Minor annoyances - locked topics and editing posts
PostPosted: Sat Sep 28, 2013 5:46 pm 
I'm sure there is good intention behind these restrictions but the locking of topics can stifle (and/or fragment) conversation and inability to edit posts does sometimes make using the forum a little difficult.

For example I found a topic about and before buying there wanted to post to see whether anyone had any further experiences or updates but I couldn't because the topic was locked. I didn't want to or see the sense in ...

 Post subject: Spell Checker
PostPosted: Thu Aug 02, 2012 10:58 am 
It may be me just be plain old thick, but I have my language selected as British English in the board preferences, yet the only spell checker options I am offered are English (us) or English (Australian).

I can't remember this being the case before recent times :scratch:

 Post subject: Edit Button Disappeared?
PostPosted: Wed May 02, 2012 11:52 pm 

I no longer seem to be able to edit posts despite it saying I can - there is no Edit button.
It also says I can delete posts but only one of my posts has a delete button on it.

Steve O.

Seems like the Edit and Delete buttons show here but still not in the Electrics or Painting/Decorating Forums.

Hi there

I am messaging on behalf of a production company called Tiger Aspect and am wondering if you can help…

We are currently making a new programme for a major broadcaster and are looking for tradesmen and women to take part. The programme is provisionally titled House Inspectors and the idea is that a team of tradesmen go into ordinary houses, where owners might be worried about the condition of the property, and give ...

Just answered a post and used the phrase expansion vessel

What do you call it when it changes it to a link which automatically shows all the youtube vids etc?

Very impressive :thumbright:

 Post subject: New member/Can't Read a PM I've Benn Sent
PostPosted: Thu Aug 12, 2010 7:27 am 
Hi all,

I only joined yesterday and as such my PM service is not yet enabled - but a member has kindly replied to my post with a PM that the forum has automatically emailed me about.

Neither the link embedded in the email or going the usual way with phb forums to access PMs allows me to see said PM.

Is there anyway I could see the PM, maybe have it forwarded on to ...

 Post subject: Locked posts?
PostPosted: Sun May 02, 2010 11:07 am 
I don't know if this is something new or I just haven't noticed it before, but is a topic automatically locked if there has not been a reply for a certain time? I noticed that all topics where the last post is 15 Feb 2010 or earlier have been locked.

I am not complaining, in fact I think it is a good idea as it stops someone piggy-backing a new topic on one which is ...
