Good morning wiLlfish, long time no see.

For anyone who hasn't met the wiLlfish, I'd like to introduce you to our very own voice of tolerance and wisdom. He hasn't had much to say recently, but it a legend in his own lunchtime.

What powers do you feel that the moderators have over you? Do you feel these powers are being abused? If so, how?

Where the fook have you been wiLlfish?

Forget all this rollocks about cliques, Stalinist mods and rival groups, wiLlfish is what the forum has been missing.

How about permitting attachments to PM's?
You can't at the moment and I find that asking a person for his private e-mail and then sending him the attachment, somewhat of a pain.

I don't think that's a standard feature of this forum software, so may not be as simple as it sounds. I'll pass on the request though.

its not - Brian I know exactly what you mean - a reasonable solution is to stick the attachment on Dropbox (or similar free cloud sharing facility) and provide a link to that.

What powers do you feel that the moderators have over you? Do you feel these powers are being abused? If so, how?

A few of my posts have been pulled, they were direct links from the bbc news web page, what is good for the goose is good for the gander or maybe not

My choice of words have been doctored neither have been offensive or swear words

My Placement of posts have been challenged ( mods seem to post where they want on whatever subject )

I'll raise a hand and say I've removed and moved some of your posts. I don't have to do it often, so you're one of a very small group. I explained to you then why I removed your post (I don't often explain!) and we still have it safe in the back office. I look at it occasionally but I still don't think it's suitable viewing for a "family" forum. Obviously you disagree, but I guess if JK wanted a forum littered with buxom blonde ladies in tight animal print tops whispering sweet nothings then he'd have made you a Mod and left me in the Bilges where I was previously

If your wording needs changed, then same as that.

Learning to post in the appropriate forum seems to come more slowly to certain members. Someone posted a Cruise Discussion in RIBs for Sale just a day or two ago. Members can't reply in that forum, so it needed moved. If someone posts non-ribby stuff in "RIBs & RIBbig" then it will get moved. I can't remember why I/we moved your posts/threads - but I'll bet it had something to do with it not matching the subject of the forum you posted it in!
