Hi Patrick

That will be changing as we change the domain name servers. This will happen over the next day or so.

Understood, thanks. On another website I've linked to the savethectc domain itself, so I'll leave things be.

That should work fine. If you type "www.savethectc.org.uk" into the address bar it gets there.

Much clearer, now I've clicked the "Register" button . Ta. :)

However first of all I clicked on the "create an account" link from the homepage which bypasses the registration info. :(

Is that because the CTC is now saved?

If it is it's too late for me. We've cancelled our subscriptions, though 30 years was a good run. If an old style CTC club emerges from the ashes of the charity in waiting they'll certainly get our family's contribution, though I'm squeamish about using this site to air views as a on-member so thanks for the memories!

That's a shame.. I have always enjoyed reading your views even though I haven't agreed with them. Keep cycling slowly :wink:

It'll be up again soon. A technical issue I understand.

You don't have to be a member of CTC to post here, so I hope we can look forward to more posts from glueman - and other ex-members for that matter.

Me too. I'm sure the CTC would not want to restrict contributions to paid-up members only. I've rarely seen a web forum where you pay to join. The only one I remember was a bonsai forum with very few contributors, and people discussing whether it was worth the fee.
