To my mind the term "working normally" should not be construed as "working properly"

Seems to me that there are still many glitches and problems waiting to be solved ........ but that seems to be the NORMAL state for this site :-D :-D :-D

Could it be to do with GR stating on FB last week that the site is now working normally as it should ;-)

Roy :-D

Another one today

How is this possible

I clicked on the purple button last night, sent a message to the OP, and asked him to go into My Accounts and give himself a board name

I also suggested that he choose something other than his real name as there were hundreds on GR with that same name.

Glad to see he did it!

I have no idea how this happens, GB

............... but I do seem to remember a couple of others appearing with no name just after the changes were made last August.

How can a member post a thread without a board name showing either as "posted by" or a complete blank when looking at the thread.

There is no way of contacting that member as nothing to click on to send a message to them

Think this needs a look at as sometimes a poster does have a name showing aginst their original post but shows as Unknown when you view the thread.
