Future-proofing the forum - it will always be here!

One of the issues with some forums is that if the forum owner / admin is unavailable for some reason (holiday, sick, loses interest, or whatever) then technical issues are not addressed and in worst case scenarios a forum can disappear off the face of the earth.

I am determined to structure this place in such a way that this NEVER happens.

Occasional outages are inevitable but you can be confident they will be dealt with as promptly as possible.

You'll notice that Proteous and Barmy have received a 'promotion' to Administrator status.  Consider Proteous and me as the main admins, with Barmy as back up and moderator.

A BIG thank you from me to both those blokes for their efforts in making this the place it is!

This extends further than the forum - both fellas have full access to the back end - forum hosting and so on, just as I have.  They'll be able to lodge support tickets with the hosting service and so on, if and when required.

This is especially useful as barmy won't have to wake me up at 2am eh barmy ?  :lol:

With the time differences between the UK and Australia we should pretty much be across things 24 hours a day.


I am letting you all know this as I consider this YOUR forum, and want to demonstrate that we don't have any 'secrets' and there's no power hungry bullshit going on here.

We are very open in the way things happen here.


As an aside, we are NOT after your money and should we EVER make a donation option available, we'll be disclosing ALL the forum expenses (which are quite modest, by the way, currently under GBP100 / year and with no anticipation of this changing any time in the medium term.)


ANY questions? Just ask !

The kisses and hugs section of the forum is something we will look at opening soon, but it will be a special 'elite' section on only the preetiest of you will be allowed in...

Thank you for your praise guys. It means a lot..
Our aim is to be here for you at the drop of a hat.. Technical issues, software issues, compatability issues.. Even if you just dont quite get something.. You can contact the Admin team ANYTIME, you should NEVER have to wait more than a couple of hours for a response..

If there is a call for it Barmy and Myself will be opening a 'Couch' section where you can come and talk 1 on 1 to discuss your problems with us.. Here we will give you the standard biker responses such as "Man up", "Grow Up", "Shut up and have a drink" or my personal favourite.. "Go tell someone who gives a s***"

We hope this will be of help to some of you at least..
