    • Not sure about the lease read through all the documents i have and couldnt find anything about parking. Contacted the management Office to get a copy sent to me. When i complained to them about the ticket they told me to appeal so they clearly don't care.      and yes it's a gated underground parking area with key fob entry. 
    • The coronavirus pandemic has thrown many countries into recession - but what exactly is it and how could it affect you? View the full article
    • Oh and before bed   Officially leaked statements about a PHE report claiming that a UK study will say there is little evidence of children transmitting Covid.   Leakers stats look impressive until you realise he's on Johnson's SAGE so makes you think - huh - hows that then when all the science I've seen says different, and there are a number of reports of spreads in schools across the world from schools that had opened.   Then, little as the information 'leaked' is, you see   "largest studies in the world on coronavirus in schools" and then "The study was carried out in 100 institutions in the UK and is expected to be published later this year. About 20,000 pupils and teachers in 100 schools across England were tested to monitor the spread of the disease up to the end of the summer term – which runs from April-July in Britain."   Then you click. That averages 200 pupils and staff per 'institution' checked We dont know what these institutions are, but I think over 200 is the average for infants schools. Other schools tend to be FAR larger. Did they test everyone at each institution, or just some ??? we don't know yet - they are choosing not to leak that - Wonder why?   We currently understand that younger children (pre teenage) seem to present few/less symptoms  (statistically) but large increases in teenager covid has been reported as lockdowns ease and they start to meet more.   I know my OH's grandson (mother a nurse) has remained at school in classes one third or less that normal, with the majority of kids having front line worker parents - so well aware of the discipline and hygiene necessary. We know the schools maintain distancing, monitoring and maintenance which would be IMPOSSIBLE in normal class sizes.   So in a lock down situation, with class sizes significantly lower than normal (highly aware front-line workers kids mainly), increased distancing and cleaning made possible by SIGNIFICANTLY smaller class sizes - Has maybe resulted in no great evidence of covid spread perhaps?   Well Whoopy do. Lets ramp the class sizes back up to 30+ and see what happens ..     Lets let the mail lead the way Coronavirus infection rates are rising in ALL age groups under 65, Public Health England data shows with biggest surge in under-fives which 'should be watched very carefully' https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8615423/Coronavirus-infection-rates-rising-age-groups-65-Public-Health-England-data-shows.html     and the ONS stats showing how similar the stats are (a statistically significant  difference can be very little actual difference)   https://www.ons.gov.uk/peoplepopulationandcommunity/healthandsocialcare/conditionsanddiseases/articles/coronaviruscovid19infectionsinthecommunityinengland/july2020     Notes: These statistics refer to infections reported in the community, by which we mean private households. These figures exclude infections reported in hospitals, care homes or other institutional settings.  
    • i understand and agree you should write a formal letter of complaint about the email by royal mail.   i also think you should totally dispute the arrears balance, esp as it goes back so long   send them an sar and add to the text in it that you want statements/bills dating back to the gb energy a/c.
    • When you see the reports coming out that serco was involved from the earliest stages apparently to give expertise   and that resulted in 18 million plus people coming back into the UK untested from hotspots .. and then even the general advice to self isolate after they had travelled across the UK home being withdrawn in the run-up to the lock down   That went well says cummings

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
       
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
       
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
       
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
       
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
       
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
       
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
       
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
       
      Thanks for reading

Agree it strains my eyes.......... and I don't have an eye problem. Surely the administrators must be aware of accessibility issues for the visually impaired???????

How about suggestions for another colour, please.

Why so many colours anyway? Perhaps alternating two or three colours forum by forum. Keep anything else black?

We already use magenta and fuchsia.

 

I thought we would try and colour-code the forums - hence the number of colours.

 

The idea is to help newcomers get around and to kwow where they arte.

When we get the sidebar menu sorted out, it will change colour according to the foum it is in. Hopefully it will also be collapsable, expandable, dragable and resizable.

 

Believe me it is quite a headache trying to run a Board this big on one site.

 

I'm pleased to say that there have been very few complaints about the compression of the Board into subforums.

 

Hopefully it makes it easier for newcomers to navigate because they are effectively presented with a sitemap whcih they can get round without huge amounts of scrolling.

 

This is especially important for people still with 1024x768 screens - aprox 60% of the browsing population.

 

If you have had a high res screen for some time, then give yourselves a shock. Change your screen res to 1024x768 and try navigating the site for 10 minutes. I magine how it must have been with the old site structure.

They are the people we are trying to address with this site restructuring.

Surely the Main Board justs needs to be clear from one section to the next. If two or three colours were used alternating does that restrict which colour you then use when you click on individual forums? Are you not over complicating it by using so many colours?

 

The sub categories are easily readable, you just have to define them section by section IMO.

The very pale pink bar above (where it says the date and time) as DX pointed out is far too pale. You cannot read the post number. Something along the lines ofhttp://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_color_tryit.asp?hex=E9967A The current colour is something like http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_color_tryit.asp?color=MistyRose and look how hard reading the white writing is on that.

 

Either change the text colour of the post number, or change the background so the white writing shows.

The bar containing the date and time on the left, and the post number on your right is a very pale pink, and the post number is white.... Here is a screenshot.

I feel that would be better in a darker pink maybe? Something like this...

darkerbar.jpg

 

OR to change the text colour from white of the post number.

 

 

p.s. Scroll to the far right to see the post number and what a diference the colour makes!
