  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.

    I agree. I've been a member here since 2013 but only have 13 posts. I have 1443 positive feedback on the bay, 841 posts on AoS and 126 sales on AVForums but yet still cannot post here but have to wait until I hit the 50 posts :confused:

    I think you need to be part of the comunity and not just use PFM as a sales platform

    I think that`s quite reasonable, it takes hardly any time to knock up 50 posts if you are taking an interest.

    Indeed. I’d have hoped that was obvious!

    Quality over quantity should count for something

    Most members here will tell you i'm at the opposite end of the spectrum :)

    Think it's more to do with getting to know the person (or at least their online persona)

    Letting them bed in to the forum section before allowing full access, seems sensible to me.

    To the people behind posts 61 + 62:

    I see no point in whining about the rules when you are under no obligation to come here in the first place.

    Ebay is the place for those who do not want to participate - well that's my opinion.

    As for stories about life's afflictions... just get on with life and face up to them as my totally blind wife does - full time job until retirement age, volunteer work, hiking in the Alps, tandem-riding, yoga, pilates, jogging and her first parachute jump next weekend... she makes the Duracell rabbit look positively lethargic :)

    I know your all right :( I'll just shutup and try to post on different forums rather than just sticking to the 1.
    It shouldn't take long to become part of this community.

    Cheers.

    Your wife sounds incredible BTW but you also need to allow for individual circumstances, not all are so brave & able, or have the wealth to back them up in such circumstances, a persons background & personal circumstances also play a large part when dealing with life's ailments, whatever they may be.

    Props to your wife, she doesn't have to do that but still does, that's very inspiring. I can still see fine but have breathing difficulties and severe arthritis, I'm 34 and can no longer work full time. I do still work but I'm self employed and just take on what I can manage and employ someone to do what I can't.

    And I agree, it doesn't take much to participate here, 50 posts is nothing. I think the rules are fair and are in the interests of everyone, not to mention Tony who has previously been dragged into disputes, very unfair on him when he's providing a free service.

    50 posts is a good amount i think.
    It keeps the posters selling and buying safer than if it was 1 for instance.

    I have bought on here a few times, and have had great success

    50 posts system must be working, how many negative comments are made regarding buyers and sellers.:) I have bought and sold a couple of bits without any problems.
