|Thread: Website Not Secure|
Just checked my login on Firefox and it no longer warns me that the site is insecure, Alec.
Perhaps you could try clearing your cache and see if that makes a difference?
|Thread: New Drone Laws from 30/5/2018|
I totally agree with MattyB. Commerce wants exclusive access to the formerly valueless airspace below 1000ft and we are simply an irritation......
|Thread: Printing whole threads off the forum.|
Scratching our heads in the back room at present, Ian - the whole pages may be a problem but you could select details in posts and save them as an image using the Windows Snipping Tool, for example. If it's text, you should be able to copy it off as a text file.
In respect of pics, try right-clicking on them, 'Save Image As' or whatever your browser describes the process as, and save them to your PC. I've just tried a random pic and got a very keepable result.
We'll check with the techies on the whole page question.

|Thread: Phoenix Flight Sim|
I had followed those links too whilst I was ruminating whether to let the post stay. On balance, there was nothing to prove definitively that the file had willingly been provided by Phoenix and to now allow those links to be posted would be inconsistent with my original decision.
I would suggest that anyone wishing to avail themselves of those links either PM Plummet for them or do a bit of research for themselves - it wasn't too difficult.
Pleased that you've got it sorted anyway, Plummet, I've amended the heading.
We've had a prospective new member attempt to post a link to a download site where the full version of Phoenix 5.5 is available. Clearly it would not be appropriate for this forum to condone this and provide the link, so the post has been rejected.
I hope Plummet resolves his problem but I don't think pirated software is the answer.
|Thread: Fantasy Formula 1|
Now I wasn't expecting that - 9th today and I've edged into a lead....
Must pick up a lottery ticket tomorrow.....
Well done, Charles!
|Thread: This forum...|
Very kind of you to say so, gents, but TBH it's the overwhelming majority of forumites who make our job very easy indeed - thanks to you all....
|Thread: Text Problems|
Same here - it started happening a while back on my PC. I don't get it on the laptop though - both are Win 10 and Firefox.
|Thread: Parcel Force GRRR!!|
If it helps, the tyre pressure sensors I ordered last month from the UK for delivery to France had a pleasant week's holiday in Larnaca, Cyprus, en route to me....
Put on the wrong aircraft at Heathrow, I was told....
|Thread: Posting Flickr images|
For anyone wishing to link to pics or albums on Flickr, the following instructions should work. There seems to be two ways of doing it. If anyone can come up with a simpler method, I'm all ears!
'Using a direct URL to link to the pic' Follow the instructions in this section to post individual pics, using the 'Image' button (to the left of the camera symbol) on the top line of the reply box in this forum:
'Embedding an album, photo or video' Follow the instructions in this section to post an album, using the blue 'Embed Media' button in the second row, next to the Youtube button.
|Thread: Fantasy Formula 1|
Thanks Icon, the result has warmed me up nicely after spending a wet and chilly weekend at the Circuit de Catalunya! On the phone at present so not sure if the pic above will come out right - I'll look in again when I'm back!
Reading this thread, I've been wondering whether I should advise you all to clear your caches re the Youtube instructions as I updated Chris Bott's first post in the user guide thread in February this year....
Those instructions are current and correct, trust me
The need to resize videos went out of the window some time back. I was wondering why you were all quoting the 'type 450 in the box' instruction and eventually discovered it in the box brought up when one clicks the Youtube icon in the reply box.
My apologies - I never bother with reading that so it escaped the updated instructions. I don't have editing rights to correct that box but I know someone who does, so I'll get them onto it...
That sounds like a result, Peter.....
We only lock threads if we feel it necessary and I think we're a long way from needing to do that. All we ask is that folk consider how the content of their posts may appear to others, ta!
Good to hear that you were able to get on the field yesterday, Peter, although hopefully the council will come up with a more permanent solution.
If forumites wish to continue the discussion, please stick to this particular incident - it's getting a bit tedious moderating comments airing the prejudices of some.....
I've deleted a post for using language which is unacceptable on this forum.
I suspect any blame should lay with the council which seems to to have sanctioned this without much thought as to the consequences, rather than the showmen?
|Thread: Burroughs hill|
Thanks for providing the link, Mark - I'll lock this one off now and readers can follow the link to the main thread
|Thread: Chorus of Concern|
I think you'll get a better response if you start a new thread with an appropriate heading in this section, David
|Thread: A request to the Forum Web Administrator|
I, and I'm sure the other mods, were unaware of this, WW. If it's been raised before, then apologies for missing this glitch. Now I know about it, I'll let Beth Ashby know and I'm sure she will sort it ASAP......
|Thread: help needed|
I'm sure the good folk here will help if we can, bearing in mind this is an RC model and not a microlight forum. I've edited out your phone number to avoid unwanted calls - any member wishing to contact you will send you a PM first.
If you can give us an idea of the problem, we'll see what we can do
|Thread: Fantasy Formula 1|
Whew, had a bit of a let-off today, with only one car scoring points and two correct predictions....
Nice one, Yorik!
TBH, I spent much of the race waiting for the inevitable from the RBs...
