Well, youve  chosen a good platform, and its pretty simple to use. Once youve gotten to grips with it. Vbull is more intuitive, but they have a habit of changing things without notice in each version, or discontinuing things.


Any advice i give is my own and is based solely on personal experience. If in any doubt about a situation , please contact a certified legal representative or debt counsellor..

I do NOT like the upgrade, I can't find what I want, the colours are too bright, it's irritating in presentation and content!

Where has the bear garden gone to?

Where is the 'new' posts button?

Just been on the forum a few mins and I am getting eye strain, please please please tone down the cream background and the lighter posts panels, if this continues I am going to have to restrict my use/reading of this forum...I do not need the pain of eye strain I am getting!

Can you please go back to the original format. This is major confusing. The beauty of the that previous version was the simplicity of use. Can see people not bothering to post now. Not being critical but this new platform is a real turnoff. If it is not broke why try and fix it?

Thank you for your comment.

Going through changes always difficult and it is even more difficult for the site team who have to find new ways of managing the forum.

I suppose it is always also more difficult for long-standing users to adapt.

However we count on stalwart members like yourself to persevere, to help get it all right, and to keep on helping other people with your valuable experience.

the old site was rickety and insecure and no longer supported by vbulletin and we had to move.

we depend on long-standing and loyal members like yourself to get through the transition and also to support the new people who come onto this site for help with their problems.

Thanks

I am find that I get Google ads right in the middle of a post so that you cannot read what is under the ad.  Secondly if you click on Unread posts, you get a list of them.  If about halfway down you see a post that interests you and you click on it to read, when you finished reading and go back, it jumps back to the first post in the list and not the back to the headline of the post you were reading.  You then need to try ans scroll down to find out where you were last.  Very annoying and frustrating.  I can see people abandoning this website until it gets sorted out properly and the colours changed.

I am using the latest version of Firefox 65.0.2.  It was updated a couple of days ago.  What about the Google ads in the middle of a post?

Thanks Andy.  Just need to resolve the jumping back to top of list of new content.  Will they be changing the colours as they are hard on the eyes?

Since the update my antivirus, Kaspersky Internet Security, has started identifying all CAG forum posts as 'Dangerous' and blocks them. I can override the block but have to do it repeatedly for every page I visit. The reason is always the same, 'Heuristic Analysis' (whatever that is). This is an example. I end up with dozens of these. There may be a way to whitelist the whole of CAG on KIS but I don't have the time to research it at the moment. Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks for this heads up. It's very concerning news and frankly I have no idea how to deal with it.

I'll flag this up to our Webmaster. I wonder if it is happening with any other antivirus programs. We certainly haven't had any other reports.

Dont worry about kaspersky, it regularly flags up random sites as dangerous. it also has a bad rep in the AV world. Their Heuristic system ( basically an AI system)  is pretty rubbish.

Norton is one of the absolute worst Antivirus  packages on the market.  Thats why manufacturers ship it free with new systems, or try and sell it to OAP's or those with no experience of AV's.

Malwarebytes and AVG free are substantially better than those as an entry level software

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • I was talked into signing up with Future Comms (future-comms.co.uk) who cold-called me to change my mobile contract to them, via 02, rather than EE. I have a small business (only me!) and it's a business contract. True, the 4G network is better for my area. This company seemed to be a marketing set-up for various telecoms companies, so I assumed anything I signed would be with 02 and didn't think it might be a problem.
       
      They sent an email whilst I was on the phone to set up the direct debit mandate with my bank which I signed electronically. That was the first, of many, problems I found. Apparently THAT was my contract, binding me to 3 years and no 'cooling off' period, because I was a 'business' (meaning any consumer rights did not apply). When I subsequently asked in writing for a copy of my contract, that is what they sent - when I argued it was a DD mandate they insisted it was my contract!
       
      2 days later they asked for my phone details to get it unlocked which I sent. 10 days later, EE closed my account, so I changed the SIM card to 02 that had come a few days before. No network! They had done nothing about unlocking it. Fortunately I was lucky with EE who managed to give me the right codes, rather than the usual 10 days to go through Samsung.
       
      By this time I was suspicious of their set-up and wanted to cancel. As I said earlier, I found myself trapped into a 3 year contract with no 14 day cooling off period (they don't offer that). Promises to deal with my complaints never happened, promised return calls neither....and on and on.
       
      Ofcom's rules apply to consumers and small businesses (under 10 employees), yet this shower don't acknowledge that. They just repeat and repeat that I am a business so it doesn't apply. To cancel the contract I have to pay the full 3 year's fees!!
       
      I would like to know if others have had similar experiences? Or does anyone know how I can maybe declare the 'contract' unenforceable? I have never before been locked into something without a clear written contract, with t&c's! And, yes, I have asked, and yes, I have been ignored.
