    Attention of Twolitre/Jim - important

    Jim we have received private messages from you saying you can't send private messages or post on the forum.

    What you sent WAS a private message so we are a bit confused. We did reply to you but don't think you have read it, so thought we would try here

    To post a reply on the forum look below the last post in a thread right at the end, for example look below this post from me and you should see a box that you can type in, where it says "write something" . Then press "post"

    We are not sure what you mean by the "recent changes to the forum" as nothing has changed since your latest posts in October and you were able to reply then.

    Maybe there is a problem with your computer?

    We are not sure what else to do as your don't seem to be getting our messages so thought we would try this

    We will do all we can to help.

    Hi Pauline,
    I hope that this PM reply is the correct method though different to previous PM replies I made pre OCTOBER!,
    So many differences and annoyances from the previous method that my 80 years (almost) can cope with.
    Things I have struggled with:-
    Trying to remember where on the list of "new posts" I was, after reading a post and then trying to return to the listing at the point from which the just read.post has disappeared.
    Trying to remember that that " Write something" means "post a reply" - WHY? And WHY so many other niggling changes.

    I presume that there was a good technical reason for changing the forum, such as the old Forum facility being withdrawn (which has happened to two other forums to which I used to subscribe regularly (AND NOW RARELY DO).

    OLD DOGS and NEW TRICKS is the basis of an old adage which has existed from long before computers evolved but is still just as valid within the Internet as any where else.

    SORRY!!! But this "Old Dog" resists and avoids change unless it is life threatening.

    Regards to you and Graham, But the (maybe-tiny) changes to the Forum have frustrated me to the point of total surrender!

    Jim.

        It's not a PM Jim, this is a normal forum post so if you can do one of these you can reply to any forum posts

        Sorry for the delay in replying, we've been away - thought of you in Madeira and the very lovely day we had with you on the toboggan ride and cable car back in 2015

          I have finally, while doodling, returned to this Forum and re-reading the posts above has prompted another response. It seems that my previous posting did not convey my frustrations with the layout and format of the forum as-is now. The whole thing seems much less user-friendly than the old and friendly format in which such things as daily postings disappear as soon as read leaving me (anyway) wondering where I was in the "new posts" before the lately read one disappeared. Leaving no clue as to where in the list of new posts it was situated. This may be just personal or a problem of my age. But I found the old format SO MUCH more friendly and less frustrating. Frustration being now a major problem after clocking up "Five Score Years" Best wishes to you both, Graham and Pauline, but I am afraid if we cannot have the previous forum format I will no longer be responding. Best wishes to ALL contributors too. Jim.

            Jim. I'm sure if you come over to Newark in April someone there will be only too pleased to explain and or show you the workings of the new format. even if you didn't want to camp, it would be great to see you!......Doog.

              Please carry on posting Jim, I missed you too. You have a lot of genuine useful knowledge you can share, you know for example what 15 thou and 25 thou are for. The world needs people like you, not these so-called technicians who just plug a computer into a car and blindly do what it says without regard to common sense, listening to the engine, or whatever it is.
              We need to know how your Gentry is running, and your Romini.

                  I'm pretty sure Jim is 80 this year. He probably meant 4 score years.

                  Twolitre Jim, the reason "new posts" disappear from the list when you have read them is because it only shows new posts, or a better description would be "posts you haven't read yet" but we couldn't fit that on the button. Therefore when you go back to the list the post you just read is gone. It's always been like that though, since 2006 when we started the forum, through all versions

                  If you want to finds general posts go to the full list of sections on the main page
                  www.community.smallmotorhome.co.uk

                  There you will find all the sections such as Romini, Camping, Romahome, etc.etc. you can then click into each section and read what you want from the lists.

                      Jim, if you visit regularly then "Today's Posts" show the threads that the last post made was within the previous 24 hours. I find this to be the easiest method but having been away in my unit this past weekend I realise some threads may have disappeared off the list which were last updated over 24 hours ago that I hadn't looked at.
