Someone may have asked this before, but how do I add a thing under all my thread posts that I can put my fleet on, etc? I’ve only been working on an Android and an iPad so understand maybe it’s something you can only do on desktop? Many thanks! 

On iPad or iPhone, click on your profile by using the three horizontal bars at the top right of the page, then click on account followed by account settings, then settings area.

Then you should see ‘signature’ appear with a little pencil after it…click on the pencil and then type in what you want to appear at the foot of each post you make and click save - job hopefully done!

I have no idea if this works with the devices you are using. This is how I  added my signature.

Go to your Profile Page.

At the top right click open your forum name and this drop down will appear.


Click open account settings and the the following page. I have only given a small screen shot as it is here you can see other pesonal deatils like email


It is here you can change your signature.

The pages seem to show the most 'recent browser' at the top of the page.

This isn't something I'm interested in, how can I hide it?

I was about to ask the same thing.

Where did this recent browser bollocks come from and why is it so crap?

Oooh! I like that the who's online thingy is finally back :) 


it went missing with the first of the fourm software updates so, thank you to whichever mod/admin managed to get that working again!

however may I recommend it be put at the bottom of the page as it was back in the old days? :) (back in the old days it lived right across the width of the screen at the bottom of whatever page you where on) 

as currently having it up top on the right side means it moves everything on the page to the left which really bugs my "OCD" LOL :) 


also if I am allowed to make requests! Im just wondering how is server space doing? because I still find the fact that photos are shrunk to 1280 pixels really limiting for me

I was wonder if we could afford to increase that some more to say 2000 pixels, I understand that server space is an issue, but perhaps it might be worth limiting how many megabytes a photo can be, rather then how many pixels a photo is

because I can easily compress a large photo down to a few hundred KB while still keeping it nice and zoom-inable if that makes sense, something I cant currently do as all photos get shrunk to 1280 pixels

Not sure if anything has changed recently, but three times in the last 24 hours I've had the editor glitch out on me requiring me to completely delete and retype a post. 

Immediately after insertion of something it handles in it's fancy pants what WYSIWYG manner, the cursor will jump to and "stick" at a seemingly random location.  Any attempt to continue typing just results in it overtyping the same letter over and over again.  The only way to resolve the situation I've found is a "select all, delete." Copying and pasting everything back pastes it back - unfortunately, complete with the glitch!

I thought this was purely an issue with my phone where I've seen it happen a few times (almost invariably after attempting to tag users - to the extent I stopped trying), but it happened on the tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S3...I think) yesterday, so apparently not.

      Having recently had some tussles with a dead BMW ECU, I thought this was really interesting:
      Especially how the guy managed to update to a newer version of Ford Sync enabling CarPlay.
      I am tempted to really learn this side of 'shiteing' as well as mechanics.

      Hi all,
      Apologies for the downtime, there was some routing issues with our hosting provider which meant the server was cut off from the outside world. I'm finding out what went wrong and how we can avoid a repeat.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.

      Anyone played with them?
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.
      Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.
      But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.
      He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.
      What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.
      Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.
      Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.
