That's true. Anyone can read the posts, but to ask a question or reply to something, people will need to register.

This will not only stop most disruptive would-be posters, but also prevent a great many spam members trying to link to their websites offering "firmaceuticals" and so on... if you know what I mean.

Hi, Frangi - kick back, heels off, relax, feel safe from sanctimonious sand flies. This section is viewable to the general public, and of course it has a relaxed atmosphere plus lots of appreciation for the people.

Hi Frangi,

You have found the place of peace.

I was going to mail you later on in anycase, glad you made it here. I hope you are able ti give some of you expertise and all round common sense and of course some of your brilliamt verbosity.

You manage that so well that I am envious of you and Contessa and a whole heap of people in here for their tallent.
Not that I dont have any talent mind you but it is in other areas involving armour and stuff like that.

Frangi a Huge welcome to the Knights and Knightesses

Hi Poddy  :)

I'm dizzy, honestly !  This has all gone to my head !  The freeeeeeeeedom and peace and friendliness.  And the sense of security is lovely !  So I'm going mad with emoticons and exclamation marks .. and in a minute I'm going to find something nice in the liquor cabinet so I can have a belated drink in honour of this forum's founders and our abused but now-happy little gang  :bounce: :rofl: :green:

Happy to see everyone here .. it feels the same as getting your first grown-up apartment, doesn't it ?

Lovely, lovely, lovely .. going to mix myself a little celebration drink now .. cheers everyone  :bounce:

Maybe we should start a Ridiculious Slap Thread

Here is the first candidate

Posting disruptive or hostile comments, including interpersonal disputes. which is not permitted at eBay. This is a copy of your post:

Hello, Saint_Lola - you are haloed!!!!

I remember someone telling me once that there was a patron saint of computers. Can you believe this? A patron saint of COMPUTERS...

St. Isidore of Seville, apparently.

Well, ANOTHER thread to catch up on - but, hey, it was delightfully fast ot load the pages - even on my old PIII 500MHz running WIN 98 (Yes, Countess - it still goes, doesn't it?)

Was thinking though... I noticed some of you have kept your old ID and some have signed up with variations ... I wasn't sure which way to go, but I'd rather just be Brumby - I only added my initials because of uniqueness.

Let me guess ... I will need to kill this ID and re-register.  Correct?


PS - Is it just me or does the air seem so much clearer here? ;-)

brumby one advantage of having the same ID in both places is that the ID should come up in google searches within a couple of days and it should be a simple task of telling ebay posters to search for it so they can find this site.

Countess what we could do with is a welcome section for this purpose.
then we all start a new thread telling averyone what our interests are with ebay and what we are trying to do and a final direct to the main index

that way the tread starters ID will come straigt up in internet searches.  :green:

Hopefully we won't get lost in with King Arthur and Sir Lancelot!

So, here is a question, then, about ID's ... what will Gooogle pick up - my registered ID - which is brumbymg - or my display name - which is Brumby - ?

Proximity of keywords is important in links... If you link back to something you've posted on eBay, with the keywords eBay, Round Table and Brumbymg, the link here becomes more likely to be prominent in a Google search.

In this new updated set of emoticons, the question marks look a little more like question marks. I still wouldn't like to have question marks embedded in my head.

Countess, have you ever heard of Khrystyne Haje, an actress?  Your AV reminds me of her:

I'm back, a little sodden but happy to be home, and yes! I have finally unmasked and shed the Ebay lolcat, for the real me, something I would never have felt comfortable doing on "BigForumbay", in the background is a lovely shot of Tamworth from the lookout.

I am thoroughly exhausted, and yet I am still up at 2.30 am, I have read the UK RT till my eyes feel like shriveled raisins, I knew I would have a huge amount of posts to read but I was completely floored by the actual amount of posts.

Thank you so much to those involved in setting up the website, it feels like home, and its great to be back, i missed you all.  :wine:

Welcome, and relax - the aim is to be comfortable and safe here, without fear of malicious finger-pressing.

Hi there Liisa and welcome  :)

Like you, I'm burning the night oil.  Just been reading the posts and about to head off.   Lovely to relax in here, isn't it, without having to watch over your shoulder for approaching slaps.

Nice photo  :)   We drove through Tamworth several months ago on the way to and from the Gold Coast.  Don't see much of it from the road unfortunately.

Anyway, nice to see you here  .. you deserve a medal for getting through all the UK posts, lol
