I am not so sure Missus The disabled rib thread was very enlightening and informative and is the sort of thing that that should be in the general forum. By putting disabled ribbing in it's own section would give the less enlightened amongst us ( me at least) the opportunity to overlook the subject.

a suggestion

not being a computer expert, would it be possible to give a choice of preloaded searches for the topics suggested by louise etc?

this way the results of the searches would bring up fresh info. with stuff like electronics they update so often, they will be discussed by the usual posters and the newbies can be steered onto the most current pages. it would also mean people post how they are used to and the newbies pick up the best info.

Also keep the general discussion as is i think, good to look at some stuff, especially as they ramble off topic!

cheers

I take your point Stu,
However I was trying to think of a way of keeping it always there as it were so forumites and vistors would think about boating for all peeps ...and would realise what an inclusive/welcoming forum RN is.

Do you mean you would like the search loaded by the number of green blobs.

Otherwise a very good point.

Cheers Brian...

(Have strong personal beliefs about boatin for all.) Think it's great that so many professionals in the business are so positive towards all ages, abilities etc.

So that layout didn't last long!

As you'll see I have changed them from sub-forums to "proper" forums. I think it makes sense for Engines and Electronics to be split out, but we'll see. They can always be merged back if it doesn't work out!
