Yes, credit where credits due.   I look forward to reading Steve's postings as they bring me up to date with local events that I might otherwise have missed.
I enjoy reading other contributions he makes and in particular when I do a quiz question because I know that Steve will put a lot of effort into finding the answer as not every question is easy      ;D

I've reinstated the smiley sets that have been missing for so long. Please let me know if there are any problems.

One thing that's emerging at the moment is just how valuable forums like this one can be, during a unique time in the UK. It allows for us all to stay in touch with one another, chatter freely and exchange information.

Social media gets slated a great deal, often rightly so, but in more than twenty years of using various types I believe this forum has to be one of the most grounded, most sensible and sanest forums around. And that's down to all of you–the members, for keeping it that way. Thanks.

To think I’m regarded amongst the most grounded and sanest around has bucked me up no end.   $thanx$

Ian, if the ground rules are clearly laid out ,followed and "administered" properly, then it should come as no surprise when its successful. Thank you so very much for all the effort you have put in over the years. It's greatly appreciated. &well&

The one quality this forum and our members has is integrity which social media often sadly lacks.

I think it's also important to add the the forum has become a real team, with some taking on roles in the History and Genealogy topics, the News Editor and of course the continuous flow of useful local information. There are, for instance, 97 people online at the moment.  So a lot of folk reading everything that's posted.

We're seeing a steady flow of new member applications at the moment so I'd just like to take a moment and welcome all the new members who've joined recently onto the forum. We've made it difficult to get on, as there are questions which do demand a fair bit of local knowledge, but that was necessary as we had a minor invasion of Russian spammers some while back. So welcome aboard and please don't feel nervous about contributing.

Welcome all the newbies. I was one of the very original members back in C.O.'s time and, although I have never met most people it is nice to exchange opinions with everyone. Hope some new people will have some great contributions to make. Cheers all and stay safe.

We've had 14 member applications which are mainly from Russia and similar places.  So for the moment I've disabled new member registrations. If you know of anyone who wants to become a member, please PM me and I'll arrange to register them.  Thanks.

I've installed a new modification for those who enjoy quizzes and riddles...

It's the spoiler tag
You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
which appears when you compose a post and, as you can see it's directly beneath the B button on the line of buttons that appears above when you create your post.

It works like this: If you're answering a quiz question but don't want to spoil it for others, then mouse-over / select the answer and click the spoiler tag.

For example, to hide "Fred"  I simply double click "
Spoiler for Hiden:
Fred
" and click the tag.
