  2. Where we are now: The site is back up and running! The character set encoding issue has been fixed so old posts should now look ok. I am currently working on themes/skins etc and I will be deleting the temporary green skin very soon as it has many issues. I will do a very quick variation on the stock blue skin first just to get a light-grey background and san-serif font, and I will set this as default. Later this week I will hopefully add a professional third-party skin in pfm colours (life is way too short to do this crap myself, and I've found one I really like than needs next to no tweaking). We are getting there slowly...

  3. May I please request people check and update their email address if it is out if date. I ask as I’m getting countless bounce errors as the server fails to send notifications through etc. I’ll eventually figure out how to send these to a black hole somewhere, but it makes sense to address it at source as quite a few folk are obviously not getting the thread and conversations notifications they have set in their preferences.

  4. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    Was struck by your set, so google-earthed Benwell. There are a couple of pictures of the area and school there in 1977 on GE that you might be interested in, if you haven't looked already.

    Great set. What's the story there? It's unusual to see a whole area abandoned like that, it gives the pictures a real post apocalypse kind of feel.

    cheers guys - not sure of the exact story (must look it up) but most of the houses were as far as I know privately owned, but a lot of the whole area has been rundown and is in the (slow) process of being redeveloped...wouldn't want to live there now- rough as hell..!

    I also know that area well. My brothers lived not far from there - oddly enough sequentially occupying the same house. It was privately owned and the rented it.
