ProSilver etc

Post by theraven1979 » 31 Dec 2008, 14:06

1. If you haven't done so already - please switch to the ProSilver theme it looks like the attached

If you're theme has the title bar as shown then you're sorted. If not then change it back using the "user control panel"

2. Contributions - I know things have died down recently due to lack of Stranglers related activity but the site membership continues to grow. I'd like to see more people contributing. There was a post recently about the forums becoming "clickey" I don't believe this is the case (and I'm glad other people have said the same). There are definately groups of people that seem to reply to certain topics or each other but everyone is welcomed to join in (as thankfully some of you are doing). There's groups of people that have formed bonds at gigs (for example) so get involved !! No one is going to shoot anyone down or anything.

The site is a non-profit unofficial "hobbyists" style site so it's down to what you all put in that makes it otherwise it will die and I'll pull the plug rather than pouring money into something that isn't active.

This is the only negative thing about the site at the moment - I think overall over the year it's been a blast and even though I've not been at all the meetups it's been great reading about some of you lot going to gigs etc.

3. Finally, all the best for 2009 - I'm sure it's gonna be a top year.

You'll get use to it.

Be all means use the other themes but you won't get the full functionality.

And thanks to you Jim for keeping the Forum available to us all. It is very addictive and whenever I disappear in the house for several hours, Mrs MH always knows to look for me on the computer, where I will be reading the posts for the day!!! :lol: :lol:

How's the B.U.T piggybank these days Jim?

Is it in need of topping up yet?

Cheers Jim, the site's fantastic, I've learnt a lot more about the band than I could hope for. Had some genuine laughs at some of the posts, and got to meet some like-minded people. Roll on 2009 so I can have more of it!

Switched over to ProSilver yesterday morning. Really used it now and I seem to be able to navigate through the pages more quickly.

Which was nice. :grin:
