Maybe combine projects and owners cars and ditch muppet show. I think the site would benefit from a clean up.

I have just had a little jiggle of the forum categories.

Any feedback is welcome!

Hi again,

I have just added a small feature that works with "mentions"

If you "tag" someone with the @ symbol and name it will generate a alert for them

eg

@andybond will tag me.

Many thanky for your effort Andy to keep this place up and running :thumbup:. I like it a lot and it will benefit from some freshing up. It has been sometime very quite so maybe we get some more traffic. Highly appreciate the switch to SSL as I never felt comfortable passing unencrypted user/password data.

Small niggle I noticed a while back, I was doing a search through old posts for various technical details and at one point had several pages worth of search results to go through.

It seemed each time I clicked on the next page of results, it took up a "search" from my "quota" and after a couple of pages the site would tell me that I've searched too many times and needed to wait X seconds before doing it again.

You can replicate it by performing a search then immediately clicking onto page 2 of the search results. Is this a phpbb limitation or a legacy throttling setting to stop people ddos'ing the site in the old days? :mrgreen:

I have adjusted the value to double what it was previously.
