About the site
Welcome to the What Hi-fi? Sound and Vision Forums, your essential destination for discussion, advice and information about all things home entertainment.
We aim to offer friendly, lively Forums where members can share opinions as well as knowledge and experiences. To keep things fun and fair for everyone, we ask you all to read - and expect you to abide by - the following rules.
We thought we’d let you in on a little secret: we’ve been busy developing a shopping site for whathifi.com, and we’re now ready to release the beta version for testing.
We’re only releasing this to our Forum users at this stage as part of the development process. We’d like to invite you, our most regular users, to take part, posting any feedback on this Forum thread so we can pass it back to the developers.

This can be resolved by switching to 'compatibility mode' in IE. The instructions for doing so can be found here:
The operation of the Forums is pretty much as you've all been used to, and we've tried to keep the look and feel as close to the old one as possible.

But there are a few new things to learn:
1) Avatar uploads should now work for everyone!
- To upload your avatar, go to your 'My account' page, click 'Edit' and scroll down to the section labelled 'Picture'.
Did no-one think to edit Verity's report on the Bristol Show. It repeats in several places and she clearly does not know what flywheel effect means (given her intonation). Come to think of it, wasn't she the one who wrote about loudspeaker INputs.

See the spam filters are working well again this morning chaps: surely there must be something you can do, even if it's contacting the chap in India and asking him to cast an anti-b*ll*cks-posting spell?
