Thanks Lee - I'll send you an email to propose keeping it simple and replacing the # with a space. Too frightened to show you on here in case the dreaded 'system' remembers that someone's already used it and won't allow anyone else!!!

Not sure which post on this "house prices" thread I'm replying too, but thought I'd mention some good news for us. We've been stuck in Vietnam for more than 18 months now, thanks to Scumbag's border restrictions (for everyone except his mates, celebrities, and "elite" sportspeople!). But a mate is buying an apartment in the same block as ours in Chatswood (Sydney) and the price is double what we paid for ours, which means we can sell when we go back and move to a bigger place in a cheaper suburb if we've managed to get a visa for our niece Sunny (we're legal guardians in Vietnam but doesn't yet apply downunder - lots more rules down there!).

Yeah, no problem here, either. Once I get my username unregistered for MB I'll hopefully be able to start again with MR - thought I'd mention that on here so no one else gets stuck with a MB signature they don't want! (your username automatically becomes your MB signature, so make sure you're using the one you want when you register...).

All fixed now, Ken. Lee's installed a new one.

Ha ha - if you wanna know how to humiliate the French, just ask Scumbag - oops - Oz PM Scott Morrison!  ;D ;D

Still took forever to open, so probably need a warning about that in the prelim "We are open" message.  Also a reassuring comment to follow the once-only link from MB to register.

General Discussion / Some text changes?

All good so far (initial access still v.slow and ditto access to 208 Sigs section, but other pages open instantly).  Now if you'd really like to test a bit more, I can give you some text changes to my "208 Sigs Then & Now" entry (to reflect our status as legal guardians for niece "Sunny") and also for my listing on the Credits page (no one in the British Army except possibly some users of the MB on this site will know me by anything other than "Scouse").

Just closing this one off after you (Lee) told me this is still "old" GB software so spam is still "work in progress".  TTFN

How about, "To participate on this MB, please click the "register" button and follow the prompts"?  I honestly took ages to find the "register" button because the whole horizontal menu is so insignificant............

General Discussion / Spam

Looks like this version might be another flypaper for spam - see two "strange" posts (one with Asian characters).  Silly question, I suppose, but is there some way of flagging spam to avoid having to open them (because once opened, I suppose they register as "successful" with the originator so will keep coming...).

Ditto here, from Vietnam - I turned off Norton Password Protect and sailed through the registration process.  But that said, I think we should mention somewhere that it's the "register" button people need to look for on their first visit - I can't be the only dumbass in the world who saw so many buttons that I felt like I was in a maze!!!
