Btw, happy to offer services as a mod if need be.

Being a mod is a bit like being on a golf club committee. Anyone who actually wants to be (on) one is fundamentally unsuited to the role.

I'm pretty new to AS and trying to bed myself in gently. Bloody place has me chuckling to myself all too frequently, Mrs Bag gives me some stranger than usual looks. 


IMO the forum is perfect, seems friendly, fantastic and varied subject matter (have a weird perversion towards Renault 20s and and half broken vacuum cleaners/HI FI systems, brought on by here) and the lack of complication.


Keep it up!

'project' tag a good idea, cannot see it in the drop-down box yet though. Will Garage section be coming back? I liked it but found it soon began to sprawl so could it be simplified somehow, perhaps by introducing some classification or other?

Squeak, rattle and roll.



Thanks restorer.

Another vote for the "Projects" tag, it'd be nice to be able to easily identify a WIP thread.


Other than that, it's great how it is.

There are a few things about the forum that put me slightly at unease.


- It's basically run as an autocratic one man show. Should Dave B47 for any reason decide to sod it, that's the end.

  Nobody else appears to have access to the db or anything to take over should this happen.


- Why is there never clearly stated what it actually costs to run the forum? Why this secrecy? I am unable to judge

  whether my monthly contribution is sufficient or not, consequently neither is anybody else. This is shit.


- There are other technicalities, like server architecture, broadband connection, etc.

  I suspect this forum cannot be run via a regular internet connection. So is there a business connection and if yes,

  how much does that cost?

1996 Land Rover Range Rover 4.6 HSE.............posh
