Can we have the Likes setup how it used to be? Without the stars or percentages ratings.

Done, I wasn’t keen on the rating thing either.

There seems to be a new problem with non-UKDF members now having full access to all sections and all threads, where previously only the main equipment threads were accessible.

And why is that a problem? They have probably unrestricted the access?

I miss read the post, I assumed SKB was talking about guest viewing the forum then realised she said non- UKDF members

Then that would exclude myself being ex ADF, but would having a £10 Pom as a father in law who fought in Korea help?

This wasn't intentional so I've fixed it. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Also fixed issues with the forum not keeping users logged in and giving "not secure" warnings.

Why close them off? It's a bit of an echo chamber here - surely if guests could see everything they might be more inclined to join in?

The Equipment section is still visible, the rest are hidden as an added incentive to register.

Does it work as an incentive?

Site moderation

My partner works within the NHS, and runs an Audiology department here in Wales, specifically Powys.

She's currently doing her masters, her subject is Tinnitus, specifically Serving Military personnel and Veterans.

My question to the site admin is, would it be possible to post her survey her as an attachment?
The survey is currently out there and I believe is also being cast around by RBL.

She would like to reach as many possible respondent's as she can.

Regards

Luke Jones

There’s no way to know for certain but I reckon so.

I would think it would put people off, but fair enough it's your train set.
