  1. Hi sfrob, hopefully you get a warm welcome and a worthwhile investment. A feature I miss which was once implemented on the forum was the live chat feature, basically a chat room that allowed instant chat, it was good and popular once but the feature was removed (I think the old owners were concerned instant chat couldn't be moderated and ceased the chatroom citing that reason). The forum generally is less busy nowadays but hopefully reintroducing the live chat will see a steady increase in participants. Can I ask what your old/regular username is? Give an insight into the new owners post history.
  2. Hi, sadly I just seen a black and white cat on the central reservation on Halifax road. It was just down from the the junction from Southey green road just down from the pedestrian crossing.
  3. Sorry I hit a nerve. I hope i'm wrong, but as you say the advertising changes have been quickly implemented even before the introduction. it's easy to come to the conclusion the future of the forum will be ad galore trying to monetise it to the maximum. I dont give 2 hoots, its a long time since I used the forum as a news source never mind for connections or a local resource, but if it was struggling before I dont see how cramming it with ads will help. Lets await the intro, perhaps they can work some magic.
  4. Just full of non relevant ads top and bottom of every screen, bring back Geoff.
  5. Hi, I updated my wordpress site with a theme update, now my custom code which had £ signs in it, is replaced with a question mark in a diamond �. Does anyone know why, my google searches suggest it is because it is a replacement character but a £ is quite common, my site is set to UK english.
  6. Sky lanterns were blamed for the Germany zoo fire which killed lots of animals at new years. https://news.sky.com/story/german-zoo-fire-mum-and-daughters-who-set-off-sky-lanterns-questioned-by-police-11899807
  7. Technology and the ability to implement it is not the barrier, its more if Sheffieldforum wants to host or promote a live chat room, they always err on the side of caution for the content posted here and a live chat would be no different. I would implore them to seriously consider bringing it back in one form or another, connecting and networking with people is more important than ever, the benefits will really outweigh the risks.
  8. This remind me of one of the 5 O'clock updates, a question was posed regarding mental health and turning to drink and drugs while people are housebound. Her reply was along the lines of 'dont be silly, I think people are more turning to their own health and practising indoor exercises along with youtube health videos' Her reply really felt like really wistful thinking, or cloud cuckoo land
  9. Total scum, no one wonders home with a dog like that and can genuinely explain it. If anyone knows where this dog ended up please convince them to return it or drop it off at a vets , pdsa, rscpa etc let it get back home.
  10. Well done everyone, yup good detective work (although that was kinda cheating on the google search for medilink jane ). Surprised picture 9 has not been found, think parkway bear the city.
  11. Perhaps we have aa few more bored people than normal (myself included) I have grabbed a few pictures of Sheffield locations from Google earth, anyone care to try and guess where? Some are easy, some are harder. Dont scroll down and see the replies until you have given them a good bash yourself! Feel free to jump on google earth yourself to have a scout around and see if you can pin-point them, that's not cheating
  12. Thank you Mort, perhaps if it could not be done on the current platform it could be done on something external and officially linked / promoted. Thanks for investigating
  13. The live chat was a great feature , any chance it can be reintroduced especially given the current isolation and loneliness people may be experiencing in the current climate?
