You and the other Mods are brilliant.  You've given up your spare time and produced a brilliant resource.

Thank you  :D

Yes all credit where due.  I have noticed in the last couple of weeks since Bob has been playing that the boards are not only easier to find but becoming very logical.

Great stuff and much appreciated  :-*

I particularly like the 'easier way of reading long topics ...
... consisting of several pages, rather than clicking on each page ?'

You learn something new every day  :)


Thanks very much Bob - it's excellent

Morning Newgent

Try Rootschat Stars, I presume you are talking about the number of stars and ranking as in Veteran etc?
