    • The Independent are saying that Boris is dropping the promise of not allowing US chlorinated chicken, hormone-fed beef and so on.   https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/chlorinated-chicken-us-trade-talks-boris-johnson-trump-a9549656.html#gsc.tab=0
    • The problem with these small debt amounts is that they can hang around like a bad smell. Every now and again you will start to receive letters followed by phone calls. Then it will go quiet and you will have another debt company chasing you. This could go on for many years.   Ignore DCBL as advised.   Send a complaint letter to ELE/Engie, asking why they have asked DCBL to chase a debt, when ELE have never sent any such bill to you. Then explain that you received a final bill relating to address xxxx and you paid it. If somehow there had been a billing error, ELE were advised of your new address, so they should have written to you at the new address.        
    • Of course it could be the same company trading under variations of the same name in order to dilute their bad reputation. In terms of the money you paid, section 15 of the Supply of Goods and Services Act says that where a price for services has not been agreed then a reasonable price will be implied. I gather from what you have told us that they give you the price in advance and you agreed. I'm afraid that on this point, you would be bound to pay the price because contract law does not help people to make good bargains. It simply requires the people stick by the bargains they have made. On the other hand, if they undertook to do a certain job of work and to achieve a certain result – and that result wasn't achieved then you certainly have an action against them. The problem is that a company like this may be difficult to get hold of unless they have got a very clear office or workplace and some assets. The second problem is that you would probably be required to have given plumbforce the opportunity to come back and try again – and unfortunately you didn't do that. This means you tried to make a claim against them, they would probably argue that these plumbing problems they always take one or two goes to fix and that a reasonable person would give them an opportunity to sort it out before going elsewhere. I'm sure you're absolutely right and these people are completely overpriced – and it seems that they have done a bad job – and of course the reviews don't do them any favours. However, I think you're going have difficulty getting your money back on this – although if you want to try, will be very happy to help you – but I'm sure that it will go to a small claim in the County Court. Of course this would be an interesting exercise for you if you have the energy. It's quite simple – but of course you do risk your claim fee and your hearing fee if you lose. I can imagine that if you produced evidence of their reputation and what has happened in court that the judge will be disposed to find in your favour regardless of the arguments which I have suggested that they might put forward. The final risk could be that they would say that you are only entitled to recover the cost of the second plumber required to finish the job that you had paid Plumbforce for. In other words about a hundred quid. It's not a bad argument – I don't know if it is a winning argument – and as I probably wouldn't bother to be represented, they might not think of it for themselves. However, I'm just letting you know of all the possibilities in this problem. Of course I think one of the lessons view is to make sure that you get at least two quotes for everything – even if it seems to be an emergency. When your new home, it's worth making sure that you gather a list of reliable support services – either from your experience or from the experience of neighbours who will already have been through it. That way you can be reasonably certain that if you have any other problems with heating or lighting or water – et cetera, you will have one or two numbers to hand that you can call on with a certain amount of confidence.

Well they say a change is as good as a rest, but on first view the new format seems more complicated than the old one, I cant seem to find one place where all threads and topics are listed

I've found where you can see your most recent posts + subscribed threads: click on 'settings' at the very top right. Result. That might actually become easier for me in time!

I'm sure webby knows this already but a lot of the formatting on the posters details is off

 

Note the "Cagger Since :" and "I am in:" are currently missaligned, and the rep blobs are moved to an awquard place on us non-site team by these messages:-

The upgrade is awful...everything is harder to read, harder to find and the Site is now even harder to navigate.

 

Plus, I cannot Edit any of my Posts (the Edit Button disappears after a short while, never to return).

 

If this is badly written, I apologise. Normally I'd come back and tweak my Posts until they were better to read and easier to understand.

 

Bring back the Edit Button, and bring it back now!

 

Cheers,

BRW

OK, temporary solution for those that find the new font too small, hold CTRL and use the scroll wheel on the mouse to "zoom in"

 

The "EDIT" button does need bringing back webby :p

 

And there is a "settings" button at the top that lists all the recent posts you have made. Only problem is it takes a couple of minuted to update.

After spending some time looking at it I have to agree that it is harder to read. The thread list is too compact and could do with being spread out a bit more.

 

 

My edit button works fine.

Smilies are gone (I'm sure they'll be back :p) you can still access them using the "go advanced" or click here and learn the codes for them (print the page out if you like ;))

Scales are the star (and I'll tickle them aslong as huggy42 doesn't catch me :lol:)

 

Things will get better, this is a work in progress I'm sure!

It looks like one of those dodgy sites that has nothing but adverts and click throughs. Very off putting to a newbie. :(

I think if they get rid on this advert:-bailiff.jpg from the top left, it'll be better. Webby will only be a day or 2 sorting most of this out I'm sure, then everyone will love the new design :)

Lots of little niggly things right now, get them all listed and I'm sure webby will get on top of them in order of importance.

Good find on that BB, I've not even checked my email notification (I opened my mail program and I have over 90 because my phone and computer receive the same messages, and as I was on my phone all day yesterday, I have every single notification in my inbox :lol:)

I know we're all resistant to change...it's human nature...but I really don't like the format of the search results. You get what looks like a Google link with no information as to poster/number of replies etc
