A thread for news items.

 

Kicking off with an email I received this morning (Good Friday) from JoannaS:

Just to let you know
that although I seem to be able to send emails I can't connect into the
internet for anything else except Skype - really weird. Being a holiday
weekend, no idea when this might get sorted.

Darn it, I've just started a thread to wish her happy birthday!  I hope the gremlins bugger off soon.

I'll try that again!

Post ratings

I forgot to switch this one and I have just now done so for the "On the sun-lounger" forum.

You can rate individual posts from 1 star to 5.

I have no idea how useful or effective this will be, so we will restrict it just to this forum for a trial period.

Erm, why would we want to rate a post?  Or is that just me?  ponder

I'll try that again!

I kind of agree, TA. Rating topics may be useful but individual posts seems to serve no useful purpose. I may just switch it off.

Janet, Chris and Shelley have linked to FB but if you click on the FB logo under their avatars, no connection is made...

I'll try that again!

I switched off that post rating option because I can see no use for it. We can switch it it back on again at any time if required.

I tried this and checked the link to find it went to some lady in Arkansas....big_laugh

You may want to double check your user name on Facebook, you may not have set one up (like me, I had to choose one!)

Search on User Name in the help center....

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

wave Thanks Danny, 

I wasn't sure whether I was putting it in the right section but knew you were around to move it if necessary.

 

ok

Joanna emailed me to say:

I am really busy at the moment and tomorrow (Monday) we go to the airport to pick up a friend and she is with me for five days so not likely to get online much.

Can you please let the CSH'ers know.

God bless
Joanna

Good idea, Toni.
