Re: I just do not believe some people!

Hang on, you paid DOUBLE the required fee to use a space and the council said if you did it again the fine would stay? D'ya know, some call me a miserable old git and sometimes they're justified, but in that situation I'd have said to the council I didn't want their 'on this occasion' 'kindness' and...

Re: Why is the members only area not working

Perhaps I didn't explain clearly. My username is 'Admin', for obvious reasons, but my 'signature line' tells you who I am. On a rally field I'll sometimes have my name badge if I haven't lost it, and I'll often have a shirt with my name on it (a throwback to shirts being literally auctioned off my b...

Re: Why is the members only area not working

Nope, sorry. I only have modest amounts of time to donate to the club and I'm not wasting it dancing to the tune of some random unidentified username. Move on.

Re: Posting a photo

As we've previously discovered, this is a 'feature' of the board software, and boy is it one we could do without! Looking on some phpBB support boards, I understand that there is an in-progress hack to remove it, and should that hack prove to be reliable then we'll be using it here! Well done for fi...

Re: DERBY CLUB OPEN DAY SUNDAY 7TH OCTOBER

Planning to. Last two Sunday outings have resulted in RAC taking me home, so need to break the sequence!! Now have a full set of Ignition component spares in the car (well not actually a spare Dizzy, but just about everything except) :D Didn't see you there today? Although I did spend a lot of the ...

Re: Cannot Edit as Before - Why Not?

One of the reasons for limiting editing abilities is due to instances where some posters have got into 'spats' with other posters and decided to go back and delete all their posts as some sort of 'taking my ball home' foot-stamping, which has left complete threads 'broken' and their useful content o...

Re: Anniversary Celebration

I restricted the number to seventy, but we only actually had sixty vehicles apply. The weather forecast wasn't just bad though, it was catastrophic with Yellow Weather Warnings from the Met Office for heavy rain all day, and another one for high winds in the afternoon, so I'm not surprised that we l...

Re: Anniversary Celebration

Geo, I'll arrange for the office to post you out the plaque and keyring but it probably won't be until the end of the week as the ones left are in my boot still, but it will come. If it's not arrived at the end of next week, drop me a line and I'll sort it. Hope the car is fine now! Had to inclue a ...

Re: Not being notified about new posts

Wonders never cease - it would seem that my rattle/pram incident has prompted some action, and I'm told that topics should now receive the notifications again. That said, I didn't get a notification that there'd been new posts in this thread, so I'm not going to hold my breath... Anybody planning on...

Re: Not being notified about new posts

No, I'm here. I've notified Corolus, who can't be bothered to look into it. I'm refusing to deal with it, because the club pay Corolus. I have no problem with doing unpaid work for the club, but I'm ****ed if I'm going to do it and watch some other person get paid for my work. I'll let you know when...

Re: Anniversary Celebration

Everyone who has applied to come has had an email confirming their application. In other news, my bank - who have a team of apparently hundreds of people in backroom operations - have so far taken three days to reply to a form submission. I'm going to ring them and complain tomorrow...
