Re: Upgrade to the Forums

Cheers.

Obviously still more to do, and we're not wedded to the blueness either. There's a lot of alternatives to choose from!

Upgrade to the Forums

We have an upgraded forum...

Took over five hours to do (thanks to a database corruption), but we got there - and although I still need to tweak a few things, like getting the menu back in here, the hard stuff's done. :)

The gallery is reinstated (link at the top).

If anyone wants to add some pictures, email them across to me. I can't host huge ones, but can resize them down at this end easily.

Thanks Nik. I'm the 'new owner' - if a community site has such a thing. It's more of a caretaking role. I too thank Tom for his work in setting this up and hosting it out of his own pocket for so many years. He put in a lot of work on this site over the years, much of it unseen. I also thank Nik for...

Another update. Thanks to Tom supplying the files and Database, I have now setup the old site and copied across the forum database to my server, located near to Hennock and this site is now running on Dartmoor! The internet link is a bit slower, but hopefully it won't make much real difference. I'll...

Nope, swaling I'm afraid. Although - swaling by English Nature to improve the butterfly habitat at Trendlebeer, not the usual farmers.

Most have probably seen in the news about the Trendlebeer fires last week - which I saw from Newton Abbot. Word is that swaling got out of hand and involved the emergency services. I've also had word that there have been some fires closer to Haytor too, but I've not seen them myself. Some awesome dr...

Something strange going on there - because it did two days ago (and some of the comments reflect that)

Be interesting how the MOD approach boxers, if they do. Perhaps we'll see them at the Autumn meet?

When I did it, two years ago, I was quite glad of the tarmac - fog had come down in august and without it I would have had trouble navigating as I'd never walked that area before, and in fact was the first time I'd ever gone onto those military roads. That was actually the trip that persuaded me to ...

MOD / Willsworthy - Ban of Letterboxes

A while ago I posted here about a supposed ban on geocaches on MOD training areas on Dartmoor, and mooted it may extend to letterboxes: http://www.dartmoorletterboxing.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2745 Got an update. Today, the GAGB (who stirred up this particular wasp's nest in the first place) have p...

Gutter Tor - remains found

Out geocaching around Gutter Tor today and found the remains of a letterbox out in the open. Had been smashed quite comprehensively. Would have been a double pillpot, one grey (inner, I think) and one white (outer). I found and removed about half of the containers in several pieces and both lids. No...
