    It has been mentioned in the past that normal text can be read "at work" without arousing too much suspicion. Large brightly coloured fonts asking about dancing, on the other hand.....
    You don't look at the forum at work do you?

    I just can't believe anyone gets enough time at workto look at the forum.

    Re: Fonts and smilies

    What about the HAPPY BIRTHDAY threads?

    Are they to be scapped?


    or must we type a plain message?

    I believe the arguement was that if you clicked onto the Happy Birthday thread, you did so knowing what you were getting (and so could wait for your Boss to be otherwise occupied etc)

    Whereas it's more unexpected in the "serious" dance threads

    Actually, not a glitch, it was a deliberate Admin change.

    Whilst a picture can say 1,000 words, that doesn't mean any of them actually make sense.

    Sorry. I'll explain:

    Blimey. There's a (sarcastic) surprise!

    How very amusing.

    But respect for owning up to your mistake.

    Here's a hug for doing so.

    Ironic wink for doing the message in smileys.

    and if Franck is worried about bandwidth maybe he should leave our smilies and fonts alone and ban DJ from posting so much.

    The only person who can make that sort of administrative change is Franck.

    David thought there was a problem with the forum software, he now knows there wasn't and that Franck has changed the allowed number of smilies to 6, still allowing you your colours and font size changes.

    David advised you as soon as he knew.
