Sorry about that - not our department, and we were assured it would only appear once per person... Apologies again.

RE: USING THE NEW FORUMS

Can it be (and it is a guess)once per IP address and since we all access from different areas that might be the issue. It certainly isn't per user id.

Never accept assurances from IT people, most don't know what they are doing!

So that's smartphones, 3D, bleeding heart liberals, Tevez, yummy mummies in their ludicrous four wheel drives, political correctness, prisoners getting the vote, Cheryl Cole, women in ridiculous hats, riff-raff, and now IT people.

Kinda defies parody, really...

RE: USING THE NEW FORUMS

Not at all,

with regard to IT people my view comes from personal experience experience at my workplace.

Every new project has been messed up by poor IT, culminating 2 weeks ago when some idiot decided to introduce an extra piece of security into our system which was already encrypted and very secure.

The result was paralysis and hundreds of hours work removing the damage he had done to the system.

The assurances that this survey pop-up would only appear once were worthless, which proves my point.

Though of course that assumes the assurances actually came from IT people, not those responsible for placing the survey.

But hey, never let facts get in the way of assumption and rant, eh?

RE: UISING THE NEW FORUMS

Sorry to have to use this forum about my problem, Mr Everard. I did try to write to Soundadvice@haymarket.com about it, but all I got was an automated response to say that the answer might be on the forums. It isn't in the forums. What has happened in the last ten or so days is that I can no longer edit my signature. When I log on and click "Edit" under My Account, it takes me to the page that is for changing the password. Could you please enable me to have access to my signature?

RE: UISING THE NEW FORUMS

Can't see any problem with profile editing, but short of changing your password so I can log-in to you account, it's hard to test further. The password edit function is on the same page as the signature edit, so if you're seeing one you should also be seeing the other.

Its possible to change the username now then? I have been told previously (over a year ago) that it couldn't be changed, so if this is now an option that'd be great - I can finally change the rubbish username I chose when I first signed up!

PS - Any plans for thread subscriptions with email notifications when new post are added?
