I'm not sure where i posted the fact that Paul B had kindly stepped up to be a Modertor, So i'll just carry on - on here.

Unfortunately due to difference of opinions etc, Paul B has decided to step down as a moderator. :(
Whilst on board he's been a huge asset, discussing difficult matters and helping out in a huge way with membership requests, post edits and the enormous task of embedding all Donny's images onto the forum. Without him onboard over the last few months i think myself and Paul would have gone into meltdown.
Thankfully Paul B will continue helping on the facebook side of things, That takes a big weight off us and to be honest, he's bloody good at it. :IANW

It's very difficult at times to find mutual ground, as friends it makes it doubly hard, but everyone is different, everyone has different views. The forum can at times be very time consuming, With Paul B back at work in the chippy his time will be very limited anyway.

Sooo, moving on, we're all still pals lol, so there's no worry there.. :gayslap
I'd just like to say a HUGE thankyou to him for helping us out in our hour of need, You did a great job Paul B and we're both very sorry to loose you as a Moderator but we respect your decision. :respect :TY

Martin :Hats

Thanks guys,
We're not all done yet, lots of paint to put on the walls, furniture to move and that bloody squeeky door is doing my head in :Boxsmile :lol:

You'll all need to ditch your browser history, dump cache and such...
then you'll be able to access f-ribsandsibs.com website :clappy ohyeh

I know it has spelling, punctuation and such errors, i just needed it live to start the cosmetic work.

Things will tidy up over the next few weeks.

My head is fried, my eyes are sore, my fingers are numb lol...
But it's working something like. :respect

Well done Martin :thumbsup :thumbsup :thumbsup
Looking at it I think it will take me a little while to get used to it (I don't like new things, they confuse me :thud )

I think your a wizard with these computers & in reality you just snap your fingers & its done, then you tell us its really difficult & takes such a long time. :rofl

Thanks guys.
Paul, this couldn’t have been possible without you and Paul B integrating that mass backlog of offsite images from the Gurnard. Well done guys :clappy

Mitch, when I get a minute I’ll do a screen recording guide to the new forum, it’s actually very simple once you get used to it.
This changeover was way way beyond my capability. I’ve done it with two test forums without problem, however our old forum software was beyond repair and needed a phpbb developer (magic man Mark) to sort out this mass mess we were in.
Yes I’ve done the website, and I’ll be doing the painting of the building he’s put up, I certainly couldn’t have repaired what Marks done.
Thanks for the vote of confidence though 😁


Thanks Cliff :thumbsup
