Forum Update

It is a new thing with the update.

Badges hold no fascination so I will ignore them, I certainly won't get upset by something outside the Forums control and I will ignore everyones badge and judge the member on the merit of their posts, like we all have always done.

Having been through it all before elsewhere I couldnt agree more.

Stay Calm And Carry On.

I don't know why people are getting upset with the upgrade. I'm quite happy to be told I'm a lean mean posting machine. Ok I may have elaborated a little, but what the heck. :default_eusa_naughty::default_beerchug:

since there is a general feeling that this is unnecessary we have turned the achievements off for the moment, so are once again rankless and badgeless, however should the majority feel it is necessary it can be turned on again in the future, really all it does is bloat the storage needed for the forum with its logs and records.

Most of us,me included did lots of leg pulling. I'm not in the least interested in badges etc.

You can say what you like about this forum, but there's not many forums that can boost over 2000 newbies overnight! :default_norty::default_hiding:

ok ok I take it back. We must be doing something wrong now, we seem to have lost 2000 newbies overnight! :default_rofl::default_jumelles:

I have to say I think that would be prudent.  When I first saw this I made a few jokes, to keep it light hearted but as the day wore on it started to take on possibly contentious overtones.  Especially when I saw Griff ranked as a rookie!

What finished it for me was the appearance of the title "grand master". Not at all appropriate for a discussion forum about boating holidays on the Broads. This is not a masonic lodge.

When I learned I'd achieved the rank of Newbie I didn't have an opinion I just assumed I had missed something which is not unusual these days and hoped that all would become clear which it has - I think!

Yes, If we were to bring it back there would have to be some work done redefining the titles of the ranks, there is nothing worse than an american idea of what you need on the forum, what may suit youngsters and be what youngsters expect from a forum, is not what we really want or need.
