Hey Monica,
Thanks for giving me five stars for observation. I'd like to thank the academy, etc......

The 'rating system' seems to be gone now though. I can only imagine the effect it would have had on this board. Please bring it back Phil, I promise we'll be good.

>>Can someone enlighten me on the newly implemented post ratings? Thanks!<<

It was something where somebody could 'vote' on which posts were the 'best' and which were supposedly 'the worst.' Phil turned the thing on by mistake and quickly deactivated it. Since something like that could fuel way more controversy then it's worth, I can see why.

Hi Susan,
I have to say I did wonder if it was our reaction to it that made Phil turn it off again so rapidly. Michael has explained. I suppose he may have a point but, like you, I'd like it turned back on and I too promise to be good - and only vote for the very good posts....

No doubt Robin Gardner could do a book on a message board conspiricy but I'm afraid this one's pure cock-up. I don't think we'll be using message ratings because they're not a useful measure of the quality of a post and are to open to abuse.

This administrative message has been rated at:

84966
84967
84968
84969

Fiona,

Thanks for that, but Phil obviously spotted my post and contacted me directly by E mail. Hopefully my problems will soon be over.

Thanks again.

Best wishes and Rgds

Well, let's peel the bananas, split the fruit, scoop on some home made vanilla ice cream, put on the toppings of your choice, add in cherries and whipped cream....Hmmmmmmmm....those bananas are starting to look really good!

Look's like it's working Philip! Thanks for your hard work and that of everyone who must have put in a great deal of effort to get the board back up and running again.

Best regards,

Mark.

Phil,

Wow, glad to see the board back up again. It was a scary few weeks, but all's back to normal as far as I can see!

Daniel.
