    How is it possible that you can access all other sections of Screwfix but can't access the Forum?

    This is getting ridiculous

    Na, it is just regular ' essential maintenance'. They are gonna offer us an 'edit' feature, any year now ;)

    Mebbe DP needs to have another with steve.w down at the lodge and get him to up the forum budget. :)


    ( dearest admin, I do hope this is not so 'facetious' that I get banned - like dear'ol ponty 1-50)

    Best Forum.........well, it ain't this one is it, even on the rare occasions it is working !
    Found UK Plumbing Forums to be more informative & friendly, plus it isn't down all the time. Bet this post doesn't last long

    Steve has informed me that he's reduced staffing levels over the weekend and given the amount of trolls & rsoles on this forum, they're left with no alternative but to shut it down, very sad I know.

    i had to resort to going over to the doughnuts forum, they do toms tips as a feature on the FAQ's page, 'steve' always deletes them over here, and his underling 'mark' sends me nasty emails.
    maybe its time to swap sides.

    Not so fast tom. can you not try and convince Dickie to get Steve to refrain from giving us 5-10% discount and use the money to retain staff?

    Steve will not change his mind regarding the staffing levels.

    are slowly killing off what was the best forum in the UK. I don't believe for a minute the shutdowns are about a lack of moderators, in fact MOST forums are not moderated, abusive posts are reported and removed by e-mail. Screwfix could also appoint moderators from some of the senior posters of the forum-like many others do.

    With friends like Dickie, who needs enemies:p

    Steve is his good friend, NOW, instead of twisting Steve's arm so the Forum can be improved, he is planning on jumping ship??? Great. Now some other TS guys will be thinking of joining him there. At least, tom is staying put, 4now.
