Re: Important - Please Read

the right decision in my humble opinion. I haven't paid yet but intend to in the near future, I am sure this won't put people off paying. Keep up the good work guys!

Re: Important - Please Read

Yes well done, and Kudos to Ian and co for taking on feedback, and indeed having the good grace to see past some of the more annoying comments.

I'm far more inclined to pay to support a more open forum (indeed I will shortly do so )
..especially to say thanks for my previous useage made possible by your efforts.

I think this change helps the AO community spirit grow.

Regards,
TB

Re: Important - Please Read

I totally agree with all of the previous posts. I was not sure about joining up before but now I will at the end of the month. I felt it would be a much redused WOT area.
Hurray now I must think of some really silly thread to start mmmmm

Re: Important - Please Read

Hi all,
We have returned the club members cloverleafs to their original colours as requested and also added two new user profile fields. These two fields allow you to toggle on/off the Premio and Medio images as well as the club member number displayed in your posts. Although they are for club members, both fields are, however, displayed in everyones profiles... we will be addressing this so as to not cause confusion.

Enjoy the WOT & Image lounge now that they are available again.

Re: Important - Please Read

As Geoff has stated, right now every registered member is able to view these new options, but as I have a meeting in Coventry "early doors" tomorrow, I have really run out of time tonight. These new options will only work for "club members" for now and we will hide them from members that do not need to see them asap.

Many thanks for all the advice. I have found it particularly hard the last few days as I gave up smoking last Tuesday. Wasn't a good week to do that....

I am taking a day off tomorrow but will be back to sort other areas on Thursday.

See you all then.

Ian

I've paid already, keep the £25 you've saved me ten times that at least this year. Even if you're spending it on beer, fags and women of the night, I'd still happily pay it to you

Thank you so much! The funds will probably go towards getting a streamline credit card payment system etc so others will have the option of either Paypal or worldpay.

Re: Important - Please Read

Ian, good luck with the non-smoking, I really mean that I gave up last August 17th and haven't had even a sneaky one since. It does get easier to the point where you almost totally forget. But be prepared that you will never be a non smoker, only someone who has given up. If you can live with that, you'll suceed


With regard to the site, you already know how I feel and I re-iterate, it's the best thing since sliced bread and I owe it my current happiness. I'm glad I missed all the **** you've had to put up with from various ingrates and hope you will not have to tolerate it again.

If you think for one moment that I would dream of accepting a refund you can stick it up yer @rse

More power to your elbow Mr Alfaowner, you've created a beautiful place here. Long live Alfaowner.com

.. almost forgot to mention: from now on Club Members can upload images of 200 kB each now. This raised limit is set for both post attachments as for the gallery.

For the others the limit hasn't changed (100 kB for attachments, 150 kB for Gallery).

Re: Important - Please Read

Just on the smoking issue Ian, stick with it friend. Didn't manage it myself 'til I was 59, damage done.: After a multitude of medical respiritory checks, I was pleasantly informed by the MO that I had a lung capacity of approx 67% of that which it should of been, and an approx age of 107yrs. all due to duty free fags, and continued smoking thereafter. 'Taint easy to stop but best of Luck. PS apparently my 'Ticker' checks out ok Just get very short of breath sometimes.:

Re: Important - Please Read

I WANT MY MONEY BACK!!!


In fact, I also demand compensation for the mental anguish this entire episode has cause me































But seriously, I would like to thank Ian, Jeff and the whole team for everything they have done in bringing us (imho) the best forum on the Internet.

This entire episode became very heated at some points, and I know that if I had put in that much work in producing something and taken that much flak so quickly, I might have just given up on the whole thing. So it is to their credit that they not only stayed cool through the whole thing, but have listened to all of our concerns and reacted to them.

For me, 25 is a bargin

Absolutely what GC said. The team are better men than I am because I'd have probably picked up my ball and gone home by now. Much respect guys

What we now basically have is the system you suggest, since the lounges have been opened for free.
