Hi there,

This post is mainly about a query that I have with the forum as a whole which in tern could be a cause for concern :huh:

I've realised that this forum has to take all contact details to be able to register which I've personally got no issues with which I actually think is a good thing but my query is that if we have to give such details I really can't see the sence in it for the fact that all members of the public can view all of the threads and posts on the forum other than just one section which is the softbill discussion section, that is all,

Ive also noticed that there is no members list or any feature to be able to tag and add anyone to yer freinds list, how do we possibly know who is who and how many members there are on the forum, whenever I look at someone's profile there is no location what so ever, I've put me location but no one else has, not even a county is located, for all we know we could be talking to people in another country, you'd never necessarily know.

What about PM's, why can't we contact direct to anyone, there is no facility for sending PM's to anyone and communicating direct, most other forums would have this facility,
How are we supposed to communicate with one another, surely I can't be the only one who's often thought about this on the forum,

Are we supposed to put our contact details IE phone numbers on the open forum in the hope that particular members will see it on screen, this could take days, if not weeks or even months before it could be even seen on screen if atall because the forum is not exactly busy at the best of times .

This would completely defeat the whole object of giving our contact details to the administration team for security reasons, dosen't exactly make sence,
The forum says please allow time for updates etc as its in its infancy but the forum has now been online since 2009 which is some 8 years or so, surly within 8 years the forum should have made vast improvements IE making the facility to be able to at least send PM's and communicate direct,

Apologies if I'm sounding rather blunt at the present but just feel as if the forum is hardly benefiting me in any way because of these mentioned issues :(

this forum has not been online since 2009 as it is a site salvaged from it's predecessor which was badly hacked !
Unfortuneately some of the features that would make it function better eg the pm system have yet to be restored

Hi Colin, thanks for that info, good to know the PMs may return at a future date, just one thing how do you get in touch with members who post in the For Sale or Exchange section, as I do not see any contact info??. James.

Arh right ok Colin, I thought as much because I can remember trying to access the forum a good while back and with no joy,

Seems there's obviously still a lot to be done with the forum,

As I mentioned from me first post it's just annoying that we can't exactly contact no one and know who is who etc, hopefully it'll improve sometime at a later date,

Maybe if Peter Moore see's this post he may want to add one or two comments and put our minds at rest B)

Speak soon
