1. My last notice about soft dicks has worked well so will try another...the forum traffic and posts and interaction is picking up and we want more interaction from everyone. I understand some can't learn to post , either too shy or too lazy but you can learn to use the emoji's which are on the bottom right of every post. Use the like or dislike button...let strangers know you have passed their way and appreciate they have made the effort with the post. USE THE EMOJI'S and this way you are joining in...it does make a difference.

    Gee I like being Queen Bee I get to make changes to make the forum more productive.Now that Aaron and Jason are understanding the software I am getting all the features I couldn't use before.
    Being dyslexic, I struggle with the permissions, I always read them backwards.
    Forums work if all members contribute something towards the forum, I am pleased with many new members joining in, but a lot are just saying Hi and making no effort, so first new rule.

    1. ALL POSTS HAVE TO BE 50 CHARACTERS OR MORE.
    2. All members will have to make a post every three months otherwise they will lose there permissions to view all board except advertiser boards.
    3. All members must have an avatar if they take down the one I put up they must add another one.
    That is all for now until i think of more changes.
    PS Legends got there delete button back or will sometime today.

    Lastly but not least we have worked out how to make Langtrees.com members automatically members of the forum with one login, it will take a few days to implement, but another 10,000 members will be visiting shortly.

    That's 500,000 words minimum in greetings. Better batten down the "NEW POSTS" hatches H.P. and take a big swig of RUM.
    Bouquets for the return of our delete buttons !!!!

    I just joined these forums today, so will just say "hi". I am slowly finding my way through the site but it will take a while, having said that it is really handy having rules clearly set out as it helps. So thank you to the administrators.
