    I have a few things I'm working on right now that I think will benefit the site immensely

    Overhaul the Events System
    Rallies are a big part of our Fun and I'm not happy with the event system, it's let us down a few times now and it needs to be over-hauled or replaced. This should happen in the next three months or less (y)

    A Best Answer System.
    Plenty of threads are started as a direct question, very often the thread will veer in quite a few different directions, the odd (or old) joke (or two) will be thrown in, someone will get the wrong end of the stick and take it further away; and all long before we come up with the correct answer. (Which eventually, we always do.)

    Now I wouldn't change this for anything, for me a joke thrown in a thread, or a thread being taken wildly off topic is one of the things that makes Fun fun. I know it upsets forum purists, who insist that threads should stay 'on topic' so we build a relevant and easily searched resource; but on-topic can often mean boring :) And I know we want it to be fun as well as informative.

    That said, when you search for a topic you want to find a solution for, reading through those threads can be time consuming and there might be 50 jokes, giggles, tangents, innuendos to wade though before you get to the 'nugget' post which is the answer you've been looking for.

    What we are looking at is a Best Answer System, whereby when a proper question is posed, all members including the thread starter can choose/vote what they think is the best answer in the thread. The best answer with the most votes will win and there will be a link to this best answer right beneath the question. So, we'll still have some fun, but keep the purists happy too.

    Cheers....:cheers::cheers:

    If it doesn't, Jim will have to close the thread early.

    I think this best answer thing is a good idea, but I think it has got limitations.

    I just spent ages looking for a thread which celebrated an English Grand Slam win.

    I just fancied a trip down memory lane.

    It suddenly dawned on me that such things pre date the forum.

    Is there no way of being warned of unavailability early on?

    Something like a pop up that says " You must be bloody joking"

    I am sure Grommet could sort it Jim.(y)

    we will need to be able to 'unbest' our first choice when a better answer appears, as is bound to happen (y)

    Specsavers. In your case they might not be good enough.
