  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.

    So sad to hear, sincere condolences to Cliff's family. Although we never met, I much enjoyed Cliff's contributions to PFM, especially in the photography threads. I am sure I echo everyone's thoughts here is saying that we will miss you.

    That's awful news. I'm a relative newcomer to the photo part of the forum and find myself spending more time there than anywhere else. On the odd occasion I've posted, Cliff offered invaluably helpful advice and it seems others experienced the same. He will be sorely missed.

    Condolences to his family and friends.

    Only just discovered this, as I've been offline since Saturday. Cliff will be sadly missed and was a unique, and valuable member of our community. Cliff was a really dedicated family man, and I really cannot imagine how awful it is for them all.
    His universally excellent images will be a lasting memorial.

    (and the whole camera industry is in danger of going bust now!)

    Sorry to just read this. Deep condolences to his family and friends (including many of us here).

    Cliff's contribution was legendary, including the golden early days of online "Flat Earth" hi-fi forums (e.g. Naim).

    Only met him once at a pub meet-up and what a character!

    It's very sad. I enjoyed his photo contributions particularly but it's not about me it's about his family and close friends. I wish them all the best in the circumstances.

    I'm sure there must be a Fishy capable of setting up one of those Just Giving thingies?

    It would be worth asking his family what they would like, my mothers wish was for no flowers but for everyone to donate to charity.
