Uploading images is flakey due to the server running closed to full disks 99% of the time.

Slight exaggeration there, there was 1 problem that took around a week to resolve on this, not sure how that means 99% of the time.

Re: Community Update - Changes are coming!

Hi all,
Just an update on this. We were intending to launch the new site during March but during the testing we've identified issues that we'd like to get fixed beforehand. So we're going to delay for a short while and will let you know a more detailed timescale in the not too distant future.
Remember to check that your email addresses in your profile are valid as when we do launch the new site you'll need to be able to access them to log in.

This site needs a 'like' button.

I disagree. I've never had a problem using the img tags with a remotely hosted image. Although it isn't technically the same as uploading to the forum, it has the same effect and is much more reliable. In my 8-9 years of being here I've never bothered with the uploader.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Ultimately who really gives a stuff.
The bottom line is for Plusnet to provide a reliable competitive broadband service.
And that isn't doing so well. The new community site is just a distraction.

I'm looking forward to the new site and I'm sure there are others on here that feel the same Smiley

Re: Community Update - Changes are coming!

I'm assuming from that comment that you have been one of the beta testers, artmo.  As you are a long-time member with forthright views, I'm assuming that the new site will be worth waiting for. Smiley

Re: Community Update - Changes are coming!

No I wasn't a beta tester as I was away when they did the recruiting. I have, however, read comments from some who helped in the testing and they appear positive about the new site. We will all be able to judge in the not too distant future Smiley

Sorry for my assumption - but I still trust your judgement.

@jab1
The new forums are being ran by a firm called Lithium. Have a look at their own website to see more, including existing customers.  http://www.lithium.com/company/locations/uk
Here is a quote from their website

“has a holistic vision of providing its clients with a total community that consists of customers, prospects, influencers, employees, and advocates.”

Re: Community Update - Changes are coming!

OT, Sorry...
I hope you're joking @Oldjim, NTL (AKA Virgin media) were by far the worst telephone, internet and TV provider it has ever been my misfortune to have dealt with.
