No, but he knows, because I emailed him.

Question:

Why do some posts have just lines, others have a flame, and others have a flame with a star? What's the significance of the different marks?

I'm glad that you've asked this, Kylie, as I was trying to work out the pattern.

I think the flame might mean ‘hot topic’. VZ can you enlighten us please.

Has ICS returned? EFR? Wondered if anyone was still missing.

I have been emailing with ICS. She is very busy at the moment but she has the link and will rejoin when she can.

Fairblue emailed Tommy as well.

I don’t know if anyone has heard from EFR.

Does anybody know if there's a way to attach a file to a Private Message? (Like, if I wanted to send a photo to just one person and not the whole crew?)

It's got no attachments to pms selected on the admin board. I saw that the other day.

You'll have to ask vZ if that's something he wants or a default value.

Apparently this has happened to a couple of people, and frustrations abound.

Email address reuse is now allowed. It was to fight spammers but all our fight spammers seems to be excluding members :shock: :shock: :shock:

We really cannot win at the moment. The spammers are a dreadful nuisance. It is quite upsetting to think of genuine members have so many problems logging in.

Does anyone know if any of our members are still having trouble logging in? So many regular members have said hello and then never posted again

I haven't heard that this is the case. I think some people (myself included) have been waiting for the bulk of the re-posting to be completed so new stuff is easily distinguishable from the old. It's done now, so perhaps we can start chatting again a little more.
