Board Posting And Editing

Is anyone else experiencing problems when writing posts on this new version of the board?

 

On several occasions, I have lost posts (or sections of posts), often seemingly because the board's functions appear to be more sensitive. For example, in attempting to insert a line, or delete a word, a line or a paragraph has occasionally resulted in unintended sections of the post (or quote) disappearing. I have then had to return to the board index page and start again.

 

In addition, certain functions seem not to work as they used to; I happen to dislike the default font; however, when selecting 'Arial', often only a part of the post is affected. It appears to require a juggling-act, in order to achieve the desired result.

 

I wonder when the 'Mander' branding will be replaced - I have to say that I rather miss it. The present generic blue I find to be rather less distinguished and visually attractive than the former style.

Can't say I've noticed any problems.

I have just pressed "add reply" and everything vanished, so one simply has another go. I also wish the little menu square for the "go to last read page" was a little larger - after a glass of wine in the evening (or advancing old age) one sometimes find the mouse pointer is a bit unsteady.

 

I also can nit get the spel chocker to werk wich is a pittie sometomes.

Have you unexpectedly switched into one of the non-standard views? Invision Power Board does that occasionally.

 

To check, click 'Options' near the top right of the page, then under 'Display Modes', make sure 'Standard' is highlighted.

No - but thank you, anyway!

No point in looking at it - drink it!

There's a spiel chucker? :P

 

Can't say I've noted any problems. I prefer the new format.

 

Mmmm - but what if I told you that the graphic design was created by a refugee from Hele & Co., who happened to have an artistic bent (as it were....)?

Goodness - this is spooky!!

 

Has anyone noticed that the board's graphics are changing as we type?

 

Look at the masthead....

 

De-de-de-dum, de-de-de-dum....

Um... is this what is meant by the word oxymoron?

 

Actually the modern Hele at Emmanuel Church in Plymouth is not bad at all.

 

One annoying glitch I have noticed is that sometimes in reply mode my delete button refuses to work and I have to use the backspace key to delete text. I did have this same problem on another, now-defunct forum, though I can't remember whether it used Invision software.

Well, at least that is one problem which I do not experience.

 

I will now search for the nice Hele organ.

 

Incidentally, does Maurice Eglinton still work for them?

You see? People do listen to you sometimes! :)

 

If only my pupils did....!!

 

:P

 

(Actually, they do - generally. If they show signs of distraction or inattention, I find that threatening to bring out the LeRoy Neiman paintings usually snaps them back to wakefulness (with a nervous edge....).

Maurice was Hele's! As I posted a while ago, he has sold the business to Christopher Gray of the Midland Organ Company, which is now known as The Midland Organ, Hele & Co Ltd. I imagine this amounted to little more than the transfer of the Hele name and goodwill in the form of existing tuning contracts. I understand that Maurice is now technically employed by the company to look after its interests in the south west. What the long-term vision is I don't know. Maurice wants to retire, I think.

Ah - the organ is back.

 

Mr. Mander - thank you very much!

 

I appreciate your kind gesture.

 

Piacere piacet. Rebranding still in progress - have to decide which parts to make transparent, and which other colours should be changed.

Ah - in which case, I await eagerly the finis coronat opus....

Typical organist!

 

200 stops, five manuals and we feel at home. QWERTY keyboard and a screen, and we're lost.

 

I must really be with-it, because I hadn't noticed any differences. Still, I'm the sort who reaches for the Trompette Militaire, only to discover that this was yesterday, and the best on offer is a Swell Oboe and an octave coupler.

Why be guilty? Lucky sod!

I understand your feeling of guilt. I would have expected a man with your nom de plume to choose a Chassagne Montrachet rather than Jacob's Creek.
