Exactly. It should be a forum default, like just about every other forum on the web.
I'll never buy another watch. Not until the next one.

Thanks for the notification. I look forward to seeing the revamped forum. No doubt a lot of work has gone into this.

Yes, fits in very well I think :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
I've had a go with most CW models in the true spirit of online buying - get it, try it, keep it or flip it!

Thanks for the pre-advice Kip; looking forward to the new format.

Along with the software upgrade will we be getting a 'brand' upgrade with changes like the new 'twin flag' motif on the browser tab?

Good luck with the transition. No doubt a mild refresh would be appreciated. I do, however, shudder at your inclusion of "Along with the team at CW...". If the latest incarnation of the CW web site is any indication ....... !!!

Roy at TWF has done loads of work recently including likes (daily winners - not sure about that because the few who live on the forum always win), picture hosting, easy linking, member-submitted quizzes.

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.
