Re: Writing guides

Great post Nick - intelligent, realistic thoughts there, not negativity or pessimism. It's a good thing we like to take on the impossible :) As for the diagram, I have quite a few more that investigate all the different relationships. Doing that sometimes help me to find some "missing links." Nice o...

Re: Writing guides

[Inconceivable: Have sent you my email.] I haven't done any sort of update for some time on the new site structure. This thread is probably an opportunity for me to give you an idea of what I'm currently working on behind the scenes. To cut a long story short, I'm basically using a very structured t...

Re: Writing guides

Nick, apologies for the delay. Rather than tie everyone up here with my thoughts, could you send me your guide? That way I can check / offer suggestions before "publishing" and then find the best place to do so. Once things are published, they become almost impossible to correct. I know this from pe...

Re: Writing guides

Nick, I've started writing an essay here as it is such a good question. However, I've saved what I have written so far as I've been going for about 18 hours straight now and think I'll be able to write much more "efficiently" tomorrow :) Also quickly read your other post. Many thanks to you :salute:

Re: The BIPs Thread

Nick, many thanks for the above :salute: Totally valid points too. It's not that 11.9% beer talking :lol: The idea of the BIABrewer.info Point System is to add a little recognition to those who contribute to the site, whether it be through content, labour, activity or financial contributions.

Think I had a bit of fuel on board writing that last post :). Finished a 3 week job with very long hours on Friday so, after weekend of sleep and relaxing, I'm back in form now.

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Does anyone have any insights into the following? There are at least four websites I've come across recently that don't work with Google Chrome when it comes to filling in a form. One of these is even a major Australian government website. Sarah and I, using different IP's and computers, both had th...

At time of writing, I see that the second post of this thread is still blank. I suspect though, that once written, one main aim of this thread is to force us to think logically and carefully before we make a purchase.
Done. Apologies for the delay :peace:

Imagine you just heard that your sister/brother had just bought a good or service that you had already bought and that good/service had failed you. In hindsight, you'll be thinking, "I wish I had told them of my experience," and your sibling will be saying, "I wish I'd asked their advice." Once the ...

Fixed. Cause: A bug in an 'extension' to phpBB used to open external links (links that lead to other sites) in a new tab. I've disabled the extension but am pretty sure we had that hard-coded a few months ago so will look for that code so we don't have to use the extension. Thanks again for letting...

Re: If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In

Scott, Joel and Mark,

Thanks for your patience on this and for writing. Without your posts, I wouldn't even have had a clue as to what to look for. Crazy stuff as the only thing that logs you out is if you click on an "internal" link within a post. External links are fine.

I'll look into it now.

Thanks Scott and Joel.

I'll deal with this in the If You Are Having Strange Problems Registering or Logging In thread.

Don't click that link though otherwise you'll get logged out! :dunno:

Go there via Active Topics in the Quick Lnks Menu (top left).

Hi Joel and welcome to the board. I just checked your permissions and they seem to be okay. One strange thing with this forum software is, after your first post is approved, you need to log out and then back in for your membership status to change. You are definitely in the right group now so hopefu...
