For the attention of von Zoyton

Post by von Zoyton » Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:27 pm

Hi all, what would really help is if you all post things for my attention here as I don't have the time to check all the messages. Forum issues, things to do, etc. Thanks.

I have suddenly got a lot of unwanted advertisements when I switch the Forum on. They do not appear on other websites which I use.

You can close them, Frecks, by clicking the little X in the top right corner of the advert.

"OK baby - sorry - I mean, righto."
"That's better."

As I said in the forum abouts, I need to monetise, however, yes too many adverts did pop up, I'm experimenting. I'll get it right.

I did not realise it was something you were setting up VZ. I thought it was another invasion.

I would like to have the Sainted Aunt Archive on the new forum. I set it up so it could only be accessed by members of the forum. However, when I try to sign in I cannot get through.
Anyone got any ideas?

I think the ads. at the bottom of the Board index are okay, not a pain at all.

I could cope with the ads if they were funding the Forum. I was worried at first because I thought they were more spam.

Yes, but we have to make sure they're not a source of irritation, otherwise people could be put off joining.

Hi, VZ, Kismet and I can't see where we can delete users.

I locked a topic because I wasn't ready for people to post, but the lock isn't working. It is showing as locked and Kismet was able to post on it.
