    Default Signature space for hire

    Hi Grapes.

    If anyone contacts you requesting that they 'hire' your signature space, please let us know so that we can ban them immediately. Just hit the red triangle on the PM and it comes straight to us.

    Rest assured - the person that has done a round of this today is already gone but I suspect they will be back.

    If you DO decide to hire it out - then we will be removing it anyway so don't bother!

    Thanks.

    We have noticed some discussion over the last few days about keeping threads on topic within the forum which we would like to address. Previously on the forum, threads were kept ruthlessly on topic and any chat was stifled. As moderators changed, this was relaxed, as we felt that the chatty nature of the forum was more welcoming and friendly for new users and old. However, it seems that perhaps we have got the balance slightly wrong, and whilst we in no way want to change the friendly and chatty atmosphere, we acknowledge that sometimes the advice that people are looking for gets a little lost. This is not the fault of anybody other than the moderators - it is our job to guide the forum in a direction that suits as many members as possible.

    In light of this, whilst we are not going to issue arbitrary rules or stamp out the friendly nature of the forum, if it appears that threads on the main advice boards are going too badly awry, the chatty posts will be moved from these threads into the already established 'Tangentisation' thread. We hope that this will make for some hilarious reading, whilst maintaining accessibility to the friendly and helpful advice given by so many of our members.

    That this issue has gotten to the point of causing dissent between members is entirely our fault, and we would like to apologise to all concerned.

    Nicos, Two_Sheds, scarey55 and 9 others like this.

    Default Joke Threads

    Hi all

    We had to pull the long running 'Joke' thread for various reasons, mainly because there were more 'jokes' that had to be pulled than were appropriate to be posted on a family forum. And also because it needed constant moderating and we all have other things we'd rather do than read 'jokes' featuring such 'hilarity' as rasicsm, sexism, and all other isms and schisms.

    Please desist from posting joke threads on the Grapevine as all will be pulled.

    Although they start off harmless, they attract non-appropriate 'jokes' and to be honest, we don't find spending our spare time babysitting it all that much fun.

    Kind Regards on behalf of the Moderators.

    Default Grapevine meet ups.

    Just a few thoughts to bear in mind.

    If you participate in a thread and say you are going to go to a meet up, please either go, or keep in touch with the organiser and let them know if you can't attend. Please don't say you will be there, and never go back to the thread and never turn up. Venues are chosen to take into consideration those that say they are coming, so if half don't come - a more suitable venue might be required.

    Please try to stay local, if people are travelling from far and wide, spending lots of money on travel and accommodation, and other local people don't turn up, who said they were going to be there, it can be a terrible waste of money and time.

    If you start the ball rolling with a thread to organise a meet up, then you nominate yourself as organiser, and you should be responsible for prompting people, reminding them, finding people travel info and taking contact phone numbers for the day.

    Just a few learning points from a recent meet up, that might help others in future when arranging to meet.
