Hey, Bren---great choice of forum name!  That makes us really stand out.

Aye, thanks love - I liked the idea of its meaning (a mixture of 'well mind' and beautiful thinking'), which is kind of the vibe I was aiming for by inviting you guys here as the first tranche of hardy pilgrims, music lovers, sometime grammarians and all round roisteringly good company! Big Grin

You'll notice that some of you now have titles below your names too: the Mod's for clarity, so all members know who's-who, and Members (those who've posted over 150 posts) and Senior Members (those who've posted over 500 posts).

I'm working on getting the new logo (the one which Bill has kindly put together for us - and a great job it is too!) in place this week; when I'm not fiddling with other bits of code to try and get us some Rep type gig going.

The thing about these free boards is that we have to make certain quid pro quo compromises: for instance, we have so no say in what gets advertised here (any one looking at the Who's On-line feature will see a team of 'Bots' and Google Ad placers at work, picking up on key words like 'Video Games', 'Books' etc. so that they then place the Ads they deem appropriate for the kind of audience they think inhabit the boards), and we can't turn-off the Ads either (or we can, but there is a premium to pay for the privilege). I don't think they're too invasive, and only appear in the last post in every thread - not every post in every thread!!

Likewise, the board's version of software is deliberately not the bleeding-edge, all-singing-all-dancing latest-n-greatest: again, if we want that, then we pay; so you'll notice that some of the features/smilies etc. look dated when compared to other sites we've all used in the past. And it looks like a multi-quote feature is not gonna be a deliverable any time soon - I'm currently in chat with the propeller-heads who deliver the features' code for the board and actually got the quote form them "We don't see the point in it...." Roll Eyes so I wouldn't hold my breath.

C'est la vie: the board's clean (in spirit at least) & honest, and it's ours, so let's make of it what we will and I'll try and accommodate any features as and when they are available - some are easy to include, some are not. :)

I think a more appropriate name for a place for fun that stands out and could possibly poke your eye out would be areola. How about it folks? ;-)

I'd say you're looking for a bust in the mouth with that suggestion. :P

Actually, that would be nipple.

And who better than Robert Herrick, the saucy but romantic Reformation poet, to comment:

Robert Herrick


UPON THE NIPPLES OF JULIA'S BREAST


HAVE ye beheld (with much delight)
A red rose peeping through a white ?
Or else a cherry, double grac'd,
Within a lily centre plac'd ?
Or ever mark'd the pretty beam
A strawberry shows half-drown'd in cream ?
Or seen rich rubies blushing through
A pure smooth pearl and orient too ?
So like to this, nay all the rest,
Is each neat niplet of her breast.

So - strawberries and cream.anyone?

This is turning rapidly into a (b)Re(a)st Area(ola).
I wonder if they have vending machines, and nice toilet facilities?

Just a board update: we're now a ad-free site, so no pesky commercials or ads to get in the way.

I'll renew the ad-free status on a yearly basis - so any one who see any ads, please let me know so I can take it up with the MyFreeForum guys.

Cheers,

Bren.
