Just started a Thread in Off Topic and now its mysteriously dissapeared :(

Why?

Not aware it was in the wrong place or offensive or anything?

It's now in the grump thread.

Not a real pain, but I’ve noticed that when folk post a link to a Facebook page the website crashes for me. I am a Facebook user so the passwords are ok.

This is on an iPad. Open autoshite on safari, click on link (eg car for sale ) and blue panel of Facebook starts to open before both this and safari close down and I’m back on the home panel.

Please can we stop merging long threads? The grin thread thinks I;ve not read snything since April, and it;s a PITA.

 

Not sure if there's some other mechanism in place now, but I'm finding this happening a lot less.  Whatever, thanks Mods!

Partly because people are putting them in the right place and partly now because we are moving posts rather than merging threads

Why have the grump and grin threads moved to the open forums? They have been in the main section for ten and nine years respectively, why the sudden need for change?

They arent car focused so are moved to open forum. Links have been left in main forum if people wish to follow them. 

They havent been delete or changed, so people know where to find them.

Been discussing behind scenes about keeping everything to simple rules - main board cars and car related, open forum other. 

 

One reason is that is can be quite confusing with new members not quite knowing where things are. Hopefully this will simplify it all. 

 

Also created a "suggest me cars" as well as "suggest me car related" threads to hopefully help simplify that as well.

Is there any way that we could post pics straight to the forum from Google Photos? At the moment I have to download them to my PC or phone first as the forum doesn't like the file type.


Please can somebody answer this question? I've also found that the forum has started to dislike a few other image types that I've tried to hotlink from other sites.

That would be really handy - the problem is when you view your pictures, it comes up with a really long filename that doesn't end in .jpg so the forum thinks you're an idiot and it's saving you from yourself.

 

So could the forum ignore the filename extension?

 

(There may be a further problem that only you may be allowed to view your pictures, as they're hosted on your Google cloud storage and not meant to be shared in that way)

Having search issues. Wanted to see if there is a "where are they now?" type thread for trying to find old cars you've owned in the past (is there already a thread for this?). No results. Typed in Austin Princess - no results. Weird, I've been following Vulgalour's thread.

 

Tried 3 or 4 different things to search and no results. Have cleared the caches etc but no difference.

Sorry to seem a pest here, but is there anyway to allow members to delete some posts that they have created?

 

For example, I posted a for sale advert on here the other week there for a ford focus. I sold the car at the weekend just gone, but when I went to "my content" & went to delete the entire post, It came up a message about administration/authorisation to do it.

 

So.....I just deleted the pictures & content from the post...so it is basically a blank thread/post now.  

 

Does that make sense?

You have to ask one of us to do it. Mainyk because people used to want to leave and deleted everything which screwed up database
