How to post a new thread

  Forum Editor 23:18 PM 02 Jun 12

I'm sorry that some of you have experienced problems with starting a new thread - over the past 24 hours or so you may have been confronted with a message telling you that you must use at least five words in your thread title.

This was a new feature that we introduced rather hurriedly, and it hasn't worked as well as we had hoped. For that reason we are going to disable it, and revert to our previous system, at least in the short term. I'm hoping that will happen very soon, but it's a weekend, and that may mean it takes a little longer.

In the meantime, try to use a five-word thread title, and all should be well. Thanks for your patience while we sort this out.

Any idea why I can no longer tick a thread as resolved too please?

No, that's a mystery I'm afraid. People seem to be ticking threads normally, so I wonder if there have been changes of any kind at your end?

use a five-word thread title

At least that should remove the "Help" titled threads :0)

and give us more to make a reply from.
