Some text changes?
« on: 23 March, 2021, 01:30:41 PM »
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 current status as legal guardians for 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", and that's why I always try to list my name on army websites as Martin "Scouse" Ratia, rather than just Martin Ratia.

Always up for a challenge, but right at this moment. I would like to finish the work on the GB & MB to the satisfaction of all.
I assume you have your changes settled, so if you want at attach to an email we will get to it ASAP ;D ;D

I hate Scouse and Geordie and Yorkie etc so you have always called you Martin.  Tony was never know as Geordie, always Tony and Alby was not even a Geordie and I never knew his God given name, hailing from Sunderland.  Did you call Ernie Geordie? Maybe he was just Soapy to everyone but me.  Where is Steve from?  Someone answer me please?   :(

I never proactively use 'Scouse' these days, either, Pam - except when communicating with ex-Army people who wouldn't know me by any other name. I never in living memory used "Martin" during my 12 years of service - so it's all about recognition and putting a face to a name, that's all, and at the moment there's someone called 'Martin' being credited on this site and not a single new reader will associate that name with me.  Same as "usernames" on this MB - new folk won't have a clue what MR stands for and it doesn't matter, as long as they learn to associate it with me!  8)

Oops, just trying out the new avatar (Vung Tau is the town/city/island state where we live in Vietnam at least until Scotty from Marketing lets us back into Australia!). I'll post this and look for the other thread about avatars. Feel free to ignore!
