By the way, it looks like the forum clock is still running on BST, or maybe we are catering for the European audience.

I agree, but someone has to write it. Any volunteers?
Trinoc wrote:Simply encourage anyone at the meeting who wants to write a review (or even a brief comment) to do so. The more opinions the better. Put up a banner at the front of the meeting with the forum url. Fix the link near the bottom of the pub page which says "forum" where it should say "forums" and/or make "forum" a valid alias, then draw more attention to the forum near the top of the page...

Could we adapt the index of discussions so the most recent discussion with a contribution rises to the top? They do this at http://www.fabletown.com (the other site I post a lot on) and it allows you to see what's new more quickly.

Also some forums (see http://www.sciencefile.org) can display a column of latest posts to all threads down the side of the screen - can we do this here?

We target one of these nutty believersâ€™ sites as a group of Skeptics (whatâ€™s the collective noun for us?) we blitz the discussion as a group, with logic and insults while not revealing ourselves. To make it more interesting forget the political correctness with these charlatans they do not deserve it and we should have more free speech here as they do on http://www.freethoughtradio.com/ .
