This is not a dig just an observation and an opinion.

But The icons are sometimes hard to make out and its difficult to make out at a glance where topics start coupled with you have to scroll halfway down the Wolves Chat page before the most recent threads are visible. Could be a little confusing and awkward especially for new members.

Maybe the Sticky icon box should be highlighted in red.

Also why do some icons look like a vertical piece of paper and others look like a landscape envelope?

The landscape ones are the threads that are busiest. The slower threads have the icon that just looks like a single sheet. It simplifies things to use the "View new posts" link, which is near the top of the screen and off to the right, imo, rather than digging through the subforums looking for posts.

The point is MUZ, there are unanswered questions in this sub-forum going back over ONE year without a single comment from Admin or Moderators.

What is the point of having the sub-forum if genuine technical questions are not answered? I don't expect an answer within an hour, but if no Mods have the technical ability to answer the question then, they ought (in my opinion) bring it to the attention of Admin who can answer the question.

We as Members try to assist each other if/when we can answer the question albeit, sometimes it is most probably only Lee that can answer it. For example, there is an open question from a Member that says he cannot always post - not one answer so, it becomes Cry Wolf and the Member might well think, well if they don't care, why should I and give up.

I do not set out to MOD bash, I understand that you all have lives to live, but instead of getting defensive at every comment please try to see things from the other side of the Forum. If my question about automatic photograph sizing could have been answered then, perhaps we wouldn't both be scrolling into the neighbours living room to read this thread.

Now, if it is okay with you, I'll get back to filleting some Cod.

Here's an idea, PM someone to bring the attention to us instead of making a show out of yourself and undermining the mods again. It really is getting boring. The thread got missed, it happens. Lee now knows about it.

I had missed this so thanks Cally. It is something I can look at, but I am still trying to find a while new theme for the forum, so they would change anyway. Leave it with me ;-)

It is really boring trying to reason with you too. Here is an idea, this sub-forum was at the top of the forum for the past how many years now and none of you 5-6 MODs could see not just one, but a few never replied to questions to the MODS and Admin. The whole bloody sub-forum is dedicated to YOU lot and you cannot view it. :lol:

So, instead of defending yourself and only showing any interest when you feel an antagonist has posted something, try doing YOUR job and you PM Lee.

Does everything have to become a MOD bashing session, it is becoming REALLY boring. Don't assume because someone has not posted an answer on here they have been ignored, as in the past I have contacted people by PM.

Would it not be unreasonable for your MODs to stop being so bloody defensive and just put their hands up and say, we made a mistake, we'll try to do better in the future instead of keep telling 'us' that we're Fishmonger's Wives and Boring and it's our fault as WE didn't bring it to their attention in their own Sub-forum.

Should it not be the intention of ALL to try and make the Forum work efficiently and effectively. Trouble, is you have to make unfavourable remarks to get a response. You get unanswered questions sitting here for almost a year - you make one remark and get two MODs and Admin telling us/me it is MOD bashing and boring. Be reasonable please. Respect works both ways.

So you expect responses from the mods but then berate us when we do? Oh, and we're not allowed to defend ourselves either? And you wonder why you get shitty replies? Give it a rest.
