I can assure everyone that the comments made on this site are seen and dealt with.

Inevitably users have difficulty with new systems and these can fall into several categories including:
1. Technical glitches on the site
2. Internet problems off site
3. User errors
This is why the advice is to contact membership services so that users can be talked though the symptoms and the problem diagnosed. However, this may require a call back. If you are out or have a call-blocking phone (like the one Liz and I have just bought) you might not be available to take them when the calls are returned.

Members should not underestimate the amount of work and time that goes into the process of rebuilding a website and forum especially if the client (the Club) requires the minimum of down time during the changeover and does not have anyone to test the new systems as a customer before they go live.

Please be a bit more patient and do not slang off what is a complex system that provides sophisticated services to members. Negative comments will only serve to discourage others from using it and pi55 off those who work hard on behalf of the Club. Ask not what the Club can do for you but what can you do for the Club.

Hear, hear Peter! I know from bitter experience what it is like to try to introduce new systems to an established group. Appreciation for the work and effort put in by club officials Is rarely forthcoming in large volumes. Please keep up the good work and, hopefully, members will get us3d to the new systems and appreciate the benefits of the new over the old, for example, the simpler process for uploading photos,

Perhaps I'm just too old?? I don't think I'm thick, unintelligent or a novice BUT (there's always a but) I have always found 'phpBB' forum software very very bizarre and hard work. Perhaps it doesn't match my LOGIC? I find it illogical.

Does ANYBODY recall my previous POSTS?? (electrifying a 1933 Chrome Rad' Austin 10) (Removing the sliding roof if anyone wants one)
Does anybody know my previous USER name (presumed to be "BeeAware" or perhaps "DazeOff" or "beeaware@icloud.com"

The user name "beeaware@icloud.com" is still in my password vault aling with a 'club issued' password - so I know I have existed once

Very bizarre and very confusing. Mike Kelly in Stockport 0771 288 7993 anytime

Like many others, I am frustrated by the absence of activity on this website. I check it out every day, but usually find I am the only member online.
