Hooray! This has been quite a soap opera, can't wait to see what happens next. Will the evil queen put a curse on the lads? Will the beautiful (on the inside) new princess kiss them all and remove the curse, then take them all out for a century ride on shiny new Schwinns? What kind of century will it be, metric or Imperial? What will become of the dashing Sea Amenonite (who indirectly was the cause of all the discord in the kingdom) from far far away? Bannishment or exhonortude?

I gots a bag a popcorn and nowheres else to go, count me in.

This will be sweet. The Aussies have left, and their thread will get overtaken by Seppos.

Keep an eye on the weather reports for Hell. If they start reporting ice, check back here.

geniunely made me laugh out loud. GOLD!

I've been away from the forums for a while. I used to post a lot a couple of years back.

Nice to meet you too.

Wow. There is a thread just for Aussies? Who knew???


BTW, I see a couple of mods posting here. Perhaps you can encourage the use of the Subscribe function for the folks who do post in this thread. That way, no sticky is even needed. The members who post in the thread (or those who manually subscribe to it) will see the thread pop in their User Control Panel when the thread is updated.

If you don't want to see it in your User Control Panel, there is an Unsubscribe button there that can be clicked.

Great function on the board, just not sure too many folks know it is available or how to set it up....

Thoughts? Expatriate? MediaCreations?


I'll step out now.... Signed, An Aussie-friendly Yank.

The Aussies were just a bunch of lazy bastids. With the exception of weekends where they were all racing, this thread was so active, it was always on top.

Good idea, though I suggest the 'daily emails' rather than an email for every post. That can get a little overwhelming on some days.

I don't get e-mails at all. You can set up subscribe so that no e-mails are sent.

The User Control Panel becomes a great jumping off point at BF, because when you log in, you click on User Control Panel and can see just the threads you have posted in, which have been updated since your last visit. It's a lot more convenient than searching through multiple sub-forums to check up on threads in which you've posted.

Plus, any new private messages show up there, as well.

BTW, The quick how-to on subscriptions:

Click on User Control Panel in upper right corner of BikeForums screen

Click on Edit Options on left side Control Panel menu

Under section Messaging & Notification look for:

Default Thread Subscription Mode
When you post a new thread, or reply to a topic, you can choose to automatically add that thread to your list of subscribed threads, with the option to receive email notification of new replies to that thread.



You can select from there the drop-down box for no email, email for every message, daily email, or weekly email.

I personally have it set up for no email, since going into the User Control Panel pretty much every day negates that need.

Whatever works....

The TAN sucks. For some reason, I can't post there. It's like the "Post reply" page just freezes. If I wanted to deal with buggered servers and such, I'll just stay here.

Um, guys, not to complain, but browsers? This is not the kind of head-butting, extreme fighting action I had been led to expect on TAT. Where's the melodrama? Where's the piss and vinagrette? You better spice it up or your ratings are gonna slide. Unless you're all just waking up and ain't had your cuppa yet, in which case I apologiz(s)e.

Cheers.

It's noon, Satdee. They should mostly be awake. Less posting during the weekend, they can't piss away their employer's high speed connection.
