 Post subject: Monthly competitions
PostPosted: Sat Jun 13, 2015 11:08 am 
The monthly forum competitions are going to be put on hold for the foreseeable future.

The competitions have run every month for almost ten years, however due to several factors it is no longer possible to run the monthly competitions. The monthly competitions may return in the future and there will of course be special competitions from time to time.
The whole point of the competition was to give something back to the forum members; ...

Ten years of Ultimate Handyman

Ten years ago in November 2004 I registered the domain name at the time I was working shifts in a chemical plant and had plenty of spare time on my hands. As a bit of a hobby I set up the site and wrote a few articles and then implemented the PHPBB forum, the site grew from nothing into what it ...

 Post subject: TV program requests
PostPosted: Thu Oct 04, 2012 6:37 pm 
DIY seems to be very popular among TV producers at the moment and every few weeks we get posts in the forum asking for people to get in touch to be considered for a TV program, some companies even email first to ask for permission.

To make things clear and to avoid any confusion here is the forum’s stance on TV programs-

You cannot post in the forum asking for participants in any way shape ...

Donnas dreamhouse

As everyone is aware the forum is free and always will be free but some people do appreciate the help and often want to make donations. I'm not keen on many charities as many are large corporations who's directors earn hundreds of thousands of pounds per year. recently I was watching TV and saw a brief clip of Donnas Dreamhouse which is a charity that looks after terminally ill children and their families. ...

 Post subject: Posting pictures
PostPosted: Sat Nov 21, 2009 7:07 pm 
Pictures often help people get a better idea of the situation and so posting pictures is often beneficial to everyone involved.

We have a dedicated forum modification for posting pictures, called the attachment mod. Please use the attachment mod whenever possible, rather than hosting the image on a third party image hosting site.

The problem with hosting the pictures on a third party site is that the pictures are often removed from that site and ...
