Yeah, blame Brexit!

It's down to a PHP version upgrade. Fixing it now.

Re: Intermittently slow forum

If you've ticked then your browser should store a cookie to let the Forum know who you are next time you come along. If that doesn't work then it's likely that your browser is set to not save cookies between sessions. Ah, I have a slight recollection that phpBB looks at your IP address as well as th...

Re: Intermittently slow forum

That's very odd. The first log-in is just a normal page request, except that it sets a "logged-in" cookie in your browser. Every page request after that sends the cookie so you're logged in for every page. Doesn't seem to be a network problem, if everything else is fast, nor a server load ...

Re: feedback about moderation

As I understand it, the "publisher" would be me (or my company), but that it's unlikely that I would be found jointly liable for material posted here unless I deliberately allowed it to remain in place after I had been made aware of it. I also understand that the courts tend to think of Fo...

No idea, sorry. It's not something anyone else has mentioned.

Re: feedback about moderation

However I am not a defamation expert, and should such an expert approach me saying that something on the Forum was libellous, I would of course take suitable action! Then the forum rules should be changed to state that only experts can expect a fair consideration of reports of illegal activity, to ...

Re: feedback about moderation

How do you reason that? What part or parts do you think are not satisfied? ⋅ The individuals are not easily identifiable (you would have to go and look up who it might be) ⋅ The statement is not likely to "cause them loss in their trade or profession" ⋅ The s...

Re: feedback about moderation

The libel of the newly-independent MPs at https://forum.cyclinguk.org/viewtopic.php?p=1327247#p1327247 was reported but left unchanged. Do opinions now vary about what libel is? I don't think that statement could be classed as libellous, because it does not, in my opinion, "defame a named or i...

Re: Intermittently slow forum

I suspect network issues, as the server "unexpectedly dropped the connection". This problem wasn't caused by the server not being found, or being too slow, it was because the connection was broken. WiFi? ADSL broadband? I can recommend PingPlotter for diagnosing network problems: https://w...

Re: Why is the bike unsupported?

Emojis are 4-byte unicode characters, that can cause issues as older MySQL databases don't support them (they were limited to 3-byte unicode glyphs for some once-logical reason). I'll have a look to see if this version of phpBB has an option to support 4-byte characters. Hmmm... there's this, which ...

Re: Trustee elections 2018

I understand that candidates might not be Cycling UK members, but surely they should be able to afford ~£50 to join if they want to be a Trustee of the Club/Charity?

Perhaps they're only going to join if they get elected, to possibly save the membership fee if they're not?
