  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.

    Great title, already inspired. Am I really the only person who wants a fortnight not three weeks? This is supposed to encourage ‘getting out there’ and taking pics. Three weeks leaves me lacking enthusiasm. Just me? Really?

    An aside, but - three-or-so weeks was suggested a few themes back, as a longer pitch timescale, just to give time for people - very esp. those who rarely post in this room to get involved ; the theme thread was getting stale, and only a very few usu suspects were contributing to themes on a week/10-day turnover.

    And none of us want(ed) a creative place to be based on the perception of cliques - we all want to see new posts from new members sharing new ideas, new viewpoints, or simply just experiments: show us your pictures! It does everyone good :)

    That said - corking new theme idea, Ian...

    Some great pictures here and I’ve flipped a couple of times on my favourites.

    So runners-up credits to SLS4321 for the crowded turbine hall, and Soloist for Metallica concert crowd, very atmospheric.

    But sadly there can only be one winner… Canonman for the deer on the crowded path . Lovely composition, colours and good interpretation.

    Thanks everyone who entered. Now over to Canonman.

    Thanks Ian, you are very kind. A few days after that was taken, I was back in the woods and came face to face with one of the biggest Stags that I have ever seen and I was alone. After 10 minutes of eye contact, I retraced my steps. He won!

    Will add a theme shortly and try the 2 week period as an experiment.

    PS My favourite from the other entries was Soloists crowd.
