Hi Admin,

A few questions if I may.

Can you give us a list of what's classed as naughty words? One poster mentioned d i c k y birds and it got changed to thingy. I recently tried to put in s p o o n s but it came out as thingy as well. Now, d i c k y might be taken the wrong way, but s p o o n s ??

Plus, is there a guide as to what qualifies you to gain these stars? I've now got three of them and a full member, it says at the side - Ooh er Missus. Is it posts or length of time posting, do we need to cross your palm with a bottle of voddie for the coloured ones?

Also, while I'm on - what are sticky topics, locked topics, and however do you get a sticky locked topic?

Hi Wavie
There is a whole list of words that are set up by default within the programme that runs this board which automatically get replaced by 'thingy'. Becuase the programme is developed predominently in the USA there are obviously some terms they consider more offensive than we do. We'll try to get someone to have a look at these preset words and change them accordingly.

The member status is purely based on the number of postings with the ultimate accolade being 'Cleanitup God' when you get to 250. All backhanders are purely voluntary Wink

Sticky topics are creatd by moderators and appear at the top of a section regardless of how old the last posting is. Locked topics are those where no more replies can be added. Sticky ones are generally the ones that we feel are of most interest to most members and, as such, would probably not be locked.

Hope that helps.

Hope that helps.

It certainly does Sir - thanks very much.

The mist clears . . .  I'd sussed out that subjects appeared by date of their last reply, but couldn't figure out how some topics were always closer to the top than some with earlier replies.

So, a sticky topic isn't confectionery that's been left on the dashboard then?  I'll get my coat - Bye
