Oh yea....

I couldn't agree more with regard to your picture comments. I wish more were posted, it brightens up the site and makes it more interesting. Still, avatars will only be abused and if what you say is correct, once it's posted we'll all soon bore of it and want to change it. At this point the poor old moderator will have his time cut ot in keeping on top of it.

You have a point Possibly not a good idea if the AVATAR thing is abused.

Thought I read some time ago that our esteemed leader said avatars were a virusy, buggy thing and that's why he wont have them.

I quite agree Meme.

search engine not picking ..

Has anyone else noticed that the search engine doesn't pick up all the relevent hits.

e.g enter "breakdown" and Breakdown Cover ..... doesn't show up

there are a number of others I've tried and don't pick up also.

Many many missing , JK is it to do with the new software or am I doing something stupid

Ya, I've noticed it too. I put in a search for a thread that i posted in a while back. I entered the title of the thread and a few keywords that i knew were in it but it didn't show up. I eventually found it by searching for posts made by my username.

It definitely isn't picking everything up.

I'm sure you are quite busy with the rest of the forum, JK, but its just something to be noted.
