  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Hi Gents,

    Can anyone recommend a courier for 2 large boxes none account holder, the usual company I use now won't ship to a private address ?

    Thanks in advance Anthony

    Not advice about a courier, but more about selling to certain people in Hong Kong. There have sadly been some real horror stories about selling to buyers there.
    I would take pictures during the packing stage & ensure the courier can give detailed tracking info.
    I'm certainly not meaning to tar everyone with the same brush, but do be careful.

    Thanks for the advice and concern, could you perhaps PM me something a bit more specific, I have shipped there many times without issue but the last time was a while back, the fact that the courier I used last time will no longer deliver to a private address is a little worrying.

    You could try ParcelHero. I shipped a couple of 75kg crates to Hong Kong with them last year. Not cheap but both crates arrived quickly and without any problems.

    I have used uk.interparcel without any problems, insurance is recommended just to be safe and take photos of item before and after being packaged prior to sealing box etc. I had to make a claim against damaged goods once but having photos of well packed items is good insurance just in case in even UK parcels etc.

    in my experience Tony its best to use express services as slower ones tend to have problems with things getting mysteriously lost or damaged

    That is good advice.

    Worth trying http://www.packsend.co.uk/ ? I sent an unboxed pair of speakers to Australia with them and they drove to our house from Manchester, picked them up, boxed them up and delivered for much less than any other courier quote I got through Interparcel.
