    It looks like the support guys fixed the attachment problem late last night (UK time) and it knocked the site offline when I was in bed :(. I've only just woken up to find this now, although the attachment problem is fixed.

    I'm really sorry about this - but it now means that the site is more or less fully working now, with just cosmetic things to tweak. :)

    I noticed it was down and figured things were getting fixed. Thought I'd check in one more time before I went to bed and I see it was up and running and it is. Thank you Ian and thank you to the support guys too :)

    I wish I could train myself to get up that early. By the time I get up compared to you, half the day is gone. So when your hubby retires will you both still get up early?

    As usual with changes, just have to get used to the new! My profile pic was gone, so put a new one on. Maybe that was a good thing. :)

    I've notices that it keeps switching back and forth from the full version and the mobile version when using my iPod. Is this a problem with my safari or is it the site? I like the mobile version. Much easier to use.

    I'll see what I can do to fix that - I may need to disable the mobile version for now, but there's an "app" coming out soon which has some better functionality on android/apple devices (allows image posting and is faster). :)

    Oooooooo. Apps are fun. Apps are nice. Unfortunately my iPod doesn't have a camera. So I won't be able to post many images.

    I'm not sure about adding games to GPF, as it would take the focus away from the main topics - although I'll have a little think on it and see what the possibilities are!

    Hey Ian, what about a pond of the month poll? The winner could have his or her pond posted at the top of the page or on the home page?

    Hmm, now that could be interesting... or perhaps a pic of the month? I'm awaiting the release of a new version of a plugin for the forum software which would allow something just like that - I'll add this to my list too.

    yea, Pic of the month would probably be better. It would be a neat add and allow everyone to participate in voting for the best pic.

    Just wanted to chime in and say that I still love the new changes, but also noticed that the version on my phone kept changing from reg to mobile versions, and have had the reg version on my iPhone for a few days now. Im assuming the mobile versionhas been turned off like you said might happen? The blue mobile vetsion was MUCH easier to navigate with my iPhone, but I understand if that version won't be available... I just seem to access the forums more via my phone than via an actual computer and thought I'd mention it.

    *eagerly awaiting the app tho, LOL*
