There have been a number of alterations and additions to the Acceptable Use Policy. I would encourage all members to read this document as soon as possible as it governs everyone's continued use of this website. Nothing in the Acceptable Use Policy applies retrospectively however it does apply from this date forward. For example, if your username does not meet the requirements of Section 2 (Becoming a member), Clause 6 it does not need to be changed. New members would be bound by this however. The new AUP comes into effect as of midnight (00:00:00) on Monday, 14th January, 2013.

The Terms of Use document has been discontinued for the present time as it requires a complete re-write. For the time-being, the Acceptable Use Policy will govern the use of the site.

In other changes, the Yahoo!7 search box has been dispensed with. It is pretty much irrelevant now as the site has its own search feature which is accessible from the toolbar at the top of each page.

The links to most recent forum posts in the sidebar have been altered slightly so that long usernames will fit into the static width of the sidebar rather than jump to the next line.

The site has a new masthead for 2013. It is still a fairly plain background but the font used is a little better on the eyes. The links bar underneath the masthead is now 3 pixels higher to allow the links a little more room and visual seperation from the masthead image.

The masthead looks good except it's too dark without much contrast. I'd lighten up the background some (go from dark brown to just brown) but keep the letters black.

I agree that the brown background is too dark vis-a-vis the black lettering.

I've changed the contrast a little though now I don't like the colour. I'll do some more work on it this week. Smile

Something else I thought of: automatic "teh" to "the" converter. MIcrosoft Word does it. No big deal, but it gets a little annoying when the left hand gets ahead of the right hand when typing "the". teh

That is a common mistake I make and I wouldn't be one bit surprised if half the posts I've made have either that or "ahve" instead of "have".

I have a bit of arthritis and that causes my right fingers to lag a bit.
