It's monitored in a reactive way, hopefully that's well enough to allow most to enjoy the forum without interruption.

No jobs going at the moment I'm afraid, but I'm sure Admin will come knocking if he needs a hand.

The sponsor ads are truly annoying. I understand they want placement for their money, but perhaps they could be laid out horizontally rather than vertically?

I actually found the first attempt with the ads along the top more annoying. At least at the side it's just like most other sites smiling smiley

Add me to the list of mildly irritated users. However, I understand completely why the Forum should have them. And, if - at the end of the day - they mean a better forum for us, then so be it. I'd much rather have this forum with ads than go without it altogether.

Are we talking about the banner that runs accross the page about halfway down? If so, it doesn't bother me at all. I don't really notice the ads to be honest (which is probably not what the sponsors wnat to hear!)

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by Mark 09 November, 2010 11:47

Hi

I'll answer these as I set them up. The ads should be sat on the right of the forum, and only in the classifieds section. Are you seeing something different? If you are please let me know. Also I've written a small piece about the ads here [www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk]

I find the new positioning of the ads no longer irritating. Thank you and well done.

What a nifty and unobtrusive little feature. I don't think I'd have found it on my own. Note though that it only works -- both the toggle and the masking -- when you're logged in.

Just a passing thought but would it be worth adding a brief description of how to resize pictures to the rules posts in the various classified sections as it still seems to stump some. I know various solutions have been posted in here, but not many visit this section, particularly (ok I'm guessing here) new or occasional users.

Has there been any new advice on stopping the page from veering to the right yet. Ive pressed thef5 button but no joy.

messageRe: Ask Admin
Posted by Administrator 15 November, 2010 08:19

nashoi, we will update the rules post and Help & FAQs soon to include the pointers for doing that.

Tarot, we're looking into the veering right issue this week, it would be handy if you could go to [supportdetails.com] and submit your details to forum@eastdulwichforum.co.uk (when using the PC which the EDF veers right upon).

Hello Admin,

This isn't a complaint, but I am mystified. A thread has shrunk - by around 10 or so posts (I think). There's a big chunk missing and I don't understand why because, as far as I am aware, it didn't contain anything offensive or remotely controversial (actually, I did swear - but those posts are still there!). It isn't important by any means, but I just wondered (a) why and (b) if you were aware of the problem (if indeed, it is a problem). If it has happened to one thread, might it not have happpened to others?

Anyway, thank you - as always.

Hi Admin, I posted something in the main area (ED) on 30 Nov re checking on your elderly neighbours, and it was almost immediately Lounged. Would love an explanation why - after all, all our elderly neighbours are in ED! In SE22!

Post content below

----

"When temperatures fall to sub-zero, the number of deaths from heart attacks peaks three days later, from strokes five days later and from respiratory infections ten days later."

(From Met Office website.)

Please check on your elderly neighbours...

Hi

I believe it was because it was too similar to the "offering to do shopping trips for elderly/people unable to go" thread. Also it was not East Dulwich specific, we do get a few other generic public service announcements e.g. Save energy, help the homeless etc and they are in the Lounge. It is a grey area sometimes and apologies if you feel it was an incorrect decision but as I say there was already a thread discussing helping the elderly in East Dulwich in the ED Issues section it was moved to the Lounge.

The thread (my thread) was actually started several days before the thread you are referring to.

As I said, that thread came along several days later.

Having checked facts: my post was morning of 30 Nov, the above thread you mention was first posted late afternoon of 2 Dec, so approx 2.5 days (3 working days) later. How can Lounging my thread on 30 Nov be based on existence of thread that didn't happen until 3 days later?

Do I really post 'help the homeless threads' every other day?

Hello Admin, and sorry to bother you (again).

BUT, having real problems connecting with the EDF lately (doesn't occur with other sites). Note problem also occurs once already connected - e.g. when wishing to undertake a search, or jump to another section of the Forum. This is the message which keeps popping up:

The connection has timed out

The server at www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk is taking too long to respond.
* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few
moments.

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network
connection.

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.


Thanks in advance for any help.

I've been having the same problem, never happened before the server upgrade (though I've been using a different browser for the last couple of months, but surely Firefox should be OK?)

Doesn't happen with any other sites.
