Re: Forum down for Maintenance - Phase 2

Prior to the update all pictures were easily visible when viewed on my phone. They are now too big to see and I can't"pinch" them smaller to view on the screen, its like I'm looking at a zoomed in picture?
Am I doing something wrong? Apart from this, the new format gets a thumbs up.

The forum seems to have disappeared from Tapatalk. ☹️
Same here. Can not find it in Tapatalk!

That’s my main forum access method on my iPad, searching for it shows nothing. Usually when I open a forum thread for the first time in browser window, a message pops up telling me that the forum is Tapatalk enabled. That’s not happening now, so maybe that functionality is not working...

Thanks you for your patience everyone. We are back live!!

You may notice some minor navigation changes...

The quick link box in the upper left corner

You name in the upper right with a drop down menu for easy access to the User Control Panel and your Profile.

TapaTalk users, please note: Tapatalk is the final element of the upgrade so it may not be totally functional with the forum for awhile yet.

Please, should you notice any issues, please notify me by pm or email.

Tapatalk has just sprung to life for me; having been 'offline', and not being found when searching for it, earlier this evening.

mChat appears to be broken. Not that I would use it but others may.
What is mChat and the number in brackets, I had a quick look and couldn’t see much happening?
Basically, I'm for anything that gets you through the night. Be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniels - Frank Sinatra

It was available previously under its full name, minichat, but only ever used for the annual Chat with Chris.

The number in brackets is the number of users viewing / chating on it.

Whoever is chatting and what they are chatting about appears as a single thread with no title. Anyone can drop in / out for a chat at anytime.

I saw yesterday morning and a new member who had popped in and asked if anyone was 'in' but no one replied; bit like popping into the pub at 10:30 on a Friday morning and finding it empty.

In many respects it offers the same ability for chat or dissussion in an open way as Facebook does, without the constraint of the formal layout of posts in a forum.

Perhaps, members should drop in for a chat more often?
