How about using Duolingo.com to learn a new language ? They have recently introduced a sort of league table for the users, such that a competitive element is brought into the picture. Some users of this forum, might enjoy learning a european language, now that they have some free-time available. :wi...

Re: feedback about moderation

But is it technically possible to prevent a certain user from posting on certain threads or subfora? Specific Topic ban . . .. pretty sure "No". Specific Section ban . . . . probably not. I guess that something else might happen if a User was banned from ( only a ) part of the forum . . . .

Re: Rookie Cycle Tour from London to Trieste

I'm afraid that London is right, slap, bang in the way from Dover to Windsor . . . . and Kent is more than a little "lumpy" should you head inland, rather than track along the Thames estuary. I know what you mean though . . I cycled to Southampton a few days ago and my lungs are still reco...

Re: dozey pedestrians

People make mistakes. "they" make mistakes AND you make mistakes. That is a universal truth that should inform your actions in future. Cycling up behind pedestrians is potentially a high-risk situation, because they will very likely be listening out for the approach of motor-vehicles and w...
