The forums

What could I do to make these forums more useful?

Perhaps email alerts?

Give me some ideas here.

New domain, new sever

As you might have seen the site has changed domains and web servers. If you see any bugs, please let me know here.

Re: Another server move

Clearly there were some problems with the Newsletter getting through. I think I have fixed the issues. Please let me know if you are still not receiving your newsletter.

Re: Another server move

Due to receiving an IP address with a poor reputation, I have started sending the email newsletters via a 3rd party mail house. Please let me know if you are still having issues getting the newsletters.

Responsive site

Many of you will have noticed that the site looks a little bit different. I have updated the site to work better with smaller screen sizes. If you are having any issues with the site, please reply to this post, or email me at

Childminder needed


Can anybody recommend a good childminder in the local area please? I'm going back to university in September and looking for care for my 9 month old daughter (she will be 9 months in Sept). Ideally looking for full-time/term time care.

Any help/recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

New Newsletter Format

I have updated the newsletter to embed all the images into the email, so allow it to more easily get by people's spam filters.

Please let me know if you suddenly stopped receiving the newsletter, or it isn't working in some way. If you could also let me know what email client and os you use, that would be great!


p.s. if you add to your address book, that will also make sure it gets past most spam filters.

Latest Forum Posts Now on the Homepage

After being asking this for about two years, I finally did the work to get the last five forum posts on the homepage. Hopefully this will drive a bit more traffic.

What else would you like to see?

I have been asked most about adding:

  • email replies
  • ability to remove a sold classified

Any other suggestions - reply to this post?

Re: Latest Forum Posts Now on the Homepage

Is it possible to add the function 'watch this thread' so that you are alerted by email to activity on a forum post?

Maddie 2011-04-17 09:54 reply


Not sure anyone has noticed, but there were a few spam messages on these forums over the past few days. Some spammer got in and posted a few comments... really just links to other sites.

I think I have closed a few more loopholes, but if you ever see anything, please email me at

Possible improvements to "Classifieds" forum


It would be useful perhaps if the following was possible on the Classifieds forum:

1) Ability to delete one's own classified after it has served its purpose (the "found mobile phone" thread I recently ran is now irrelevant, for example).

2) Possible enhancement to (1), the ability to set an option expiry date at the outset after which the ad would delete itself automatically

3) Maybe display of the number of "views" an advert has had !
