      Hi, can I change my username please to SouthWestMart. Thanks in advance.
      1. Turbostar
        Hi Mike, ref. to received email. Why is there a prob changing my username, considering majority of members, including yourself, have their names in their username in some way shape or form?

        Hi there! It wasn't me personally that made the decision, but in any case we wouldn't normally update a name unless it presented a privacy concern in its current form (whereas you're doing the opposite) - primarily just to prevent confusion for other members.

      Any idea if it's possible to change the banner at the top of the page whenever I visit the site, I think in the past there was a option to change it to various headers such as HSTs for one...

      Is this still a option or has it gone?
      1. Mike395
        Hey Class 403! It's gone for the moment as we needed to upgrade the forum software as a priority. It'll hopefully return in the future, but it's a fair job to collate these so not a priority at present unfortunately.

        Okay, that's fine I just thought I ask that's all. Thanks for being so prompt and polite.

      Yorkie asked me to contact you re status of server(s).

      I have posted the details I have to Mojo, so will not repost to avoid inconsistencies.

      In short - the site appears to have been compromised.

      Hi, I seem to have broken a rule that I looked very hard to find before posting. I searching the FAQ for references to advertising jobs and couldn't find any reference to it so assumed that board dedicated to jobs and careers would be fine to post in. Can you point me to a link to the FAQ item that I should have read before posting?

      In my defence I did also send a message to the forum admins seeking a collaboration between yourselves and MacRail. This offer is still open and I would very much like to discuss it.

      Hello! My name is Mikko Lindskog and I am from Sweden. Me and my girlfriend have bought an old railway station (first train departed 3 Jan 1877) from the Swedish Transport Authority, which we are now restoring. For instance heating and plumbing must be rebuilt as it has frozen during cold winters. Right now we are having a crowdfunding campaign going on to get some more money for the renovation. Would it be ok to post a link to our crowdfunding on the forum? If so, which section would You recommend? To give You an idea of what we are doing, feel free to check out www.ulule.com/grythyttan-station for the crowdfunding and grythyttanstation.com for our normal web site. Best regards, Mikko Lindskog, Norrkoeping, Sweden (you can also reach me via mlindskog@hotmail.com)

      Hi hope your ok Mike. Did Yorkie send you a message about a £3.60 trip around Kent in April or May?

      Me and my attitude are leaving the forum to those who believe that penalising ticket buying customers is tantamount to revenue protection. East Coast are going to have to come to small claims court to if they want to get and keep that 96.8.

      Hi Mike, I'd quite like to get my appeal reviewd by yourself please. Unfortunately I do not have privileges to send private messages, would you mind granting me access please? Thanks

      Why was my post deleted?

      I wondered if you could help, I had read through all of the FAQ's and only gotten around to seeing the point you make about advertising below the area where you post - I was looking for spotters who might be interested in helping out on an editorial shoot. Sorry if I missed a step but wondered if you could point me in the right direction into getting my post republished?

      Hi administrators. I am doing some research for a television production company and I would like to seek the administrators' consent before posting an appeal for help from contributors to the forum. I have registered on the site but I don't seem to be able to send a PM to the administrators. For obvious reasons, it makes sense for me to check the nature of our proposed appeal in private, before going ahead and posting it on the forum. Many thanks for your help.

      I did ask why a post I had made has not appeared, it was on the subject of Oyster Cards.
