I think this needs some clarification. Do all threads now need to be serious? Some of the best threads on here over the years have been the funny ones.

The thread in question was on topic. It was about a forthcoming new channel launch with original programmes and presentation. Exactly what this forum is meant to be about. Was it 100% serious. Of course not. Who wants a forum without any fun?

Well come up with something funny then.

They launch on 1st July, so they could pick up the millions of Loaded TV viewers who are stuck for something to watch now that that channel seems to have closed down. It is obvious that the two channels are competing for the same demographic so even if Loaded TV does come back, will the viewers still be there?


I mean.. its all a bit 'one-trick' really, isn't it? You might say you 'run the comedy gamut from A to B' - to borrow your well expressed gift of utter sarcasm in a plain wrapper.

You'll forgive me I hope - you know they say everyone's a critic, and you did ask for clarification so I thought I would qualify my original message.

Perhaps I've misjudged you. That's a bristling little piece of wordplay, worthy of Dictionary Corner.

I'll knit you a Giles Brandreth pullover. With an owl on it, perhaps.

Dunno if anyones noticed this, but even if you asterisk out a swear word, eg b***er, it still appears in full on the front page.

One of Mike W's posts was affected, plus mine have been too!

Im taking a guess that if you type it in full originally, then edit it, it happens!

Minor nitpick warning!

The links to the latest post on the front page of the classic forum only are not scrolling the thread page to the correct post - if there's only one page to the thread.

The front page link has the format #post885274 but in the HTML, the named links are hyphenated post-885274

Asa,

Any chance of adding some sort of of auto-shrink option to large images on posts?

It's already a feature on Neon.

Does the script where large images get shrunk to the maximum width of the post not work for you? It is being replaced in the next update with the standard CSS max-width property so will work responsively but should do the same thing.

EDIT: Ah bilky's nailed it - yep, use Neon dbl!

And thanks for the anchor issue Andrew - all fixed in Neon (hopefully!)
