The Stuff Thread

Recommended Posts

The new forum needs a little less red, its quite bright on high res monitors. The forum needs a better way to navigate back to the main page other than scrolling all the way up and click home and we need a way to jump to the latest posts rather than taking us to the first page of the thread.

 

Also has anyone else notice the thread is made by Rohan 😄

The red doesn’t bother me really, but the white does.

 

Yes, because he originally made the thread way back then. We still have all the og threads, although I didn’t know that becuase someone created a million pointless spam polls 🤨

Yep i remember when he created it, its a nice feature to add the OP names under each thread on the main screen instead of having to go to page one to see who created a particular thread 🙂

Does anyone else find it hilarious that the old forum never made it out of beta after all those years? 😂

I hope none of you have to deal with life insurance policies for a parent when you have power of attorney for the other parent. One policy was easy, just had to email the power of attorney document and death certificate. But another one which is for a lot more, they won’t pay it into my account even though my dad has no account and legally I say where it goes. So now I’ve got to setup a bank account for him, get them to pay it into that and then transfer is all to my account as that’s where the bills come out of, then his account will never get used again. How pointless is that...

@Hughesy

I know it's been there all along, but the symbol for it on these new forum is funny.

I started following the Doctor Who page on Instagram yesterday and now I'm getting inundated with loads of spam or fan account requests trying to follow me. Go away, I'm not famous enough for randomers!

Why are they trying to follow you, out of interest? Do you know them or do you know them in real life?

I've got no idea who they are, otherwise I wouldn't bother mentioning it.

I could change my name so we'd have 'MATT' and 'MATTB'! 😏

For the last 3 years, I've been using Wifi with the router being on the opposite side of the house, one floor below my computer. It worked decently, but now we apparently have some kind of Wifi extender thingy which got me a decent speedtest.

Finally you can share an image quickly in here by just using snipping tool, copying the image (not even saving!) and then just pasting it here!

@Faya Help, I can't access the DiRT forums. When I click on the DiRT General Discussion category or a topic from it, it just opens a blank page. Same with F1 forums and all the other game subforums. I can only see/access the Codies Lounge subforum. Yesterday I could still see the DiRT forum

Also, speaking of the new forum, with the user rankings come back? I'm a bit bummed, as I was just a few points away from Champion rank in the old forum 😄

I'm not an employee, but my guess would be no. The rankings were based off things like the reactions to your post, all of which have been reset now.

True, I suppose. That is very strange why you are getting that. Perhaps the people doing it think they know you in real life, or they just trying to scare new comers away?
