        I would just like to give a bit of advanced notice that the BiC forum is being upgraded over the next few days.

        Security, as you know is my top priority and we are upgrading to the latest fully operational YaBB bulletin board software that has gone through Beta testing.

        What this means is that from tomorrow around 9am – Tuesday March 4, the forum will be put into maintenance mode.

        We anticipate it will take several days  before we are back to normal.

        We apologise for being offline but we wish to ensure the forum is working the way it should before unveiling its new version.

        All user name and passwords will remain the same.

        Thankx.

        Gerald

            An update on the upgrade.

            The forum is running with full security installed there are however some elements that are missing – such as some members’ avatars, some graphics, some Smilies, board icons and some of the posted pictures – as in the Cretan sunsets section of the Expat Cafe.

            You will also notice some duplicate posts.

            These are issues we are working on and they will be resolved bit-by-bit.

            You are free to post.

            Indeed if you notice your avatar or a photo is missing, please let me know by PM. That helps the tech guys to identify where a minor issue may be located. That helps get it resolved quicker.

            Again my apologies for the delay in getting everything running smoothly.

            If you have any questions, please PM me.

            Thanx

            Gerald

                Welcome back BritsinCrete.co.uk

                Site looks more up to date and jazzed up.

                I was wondering by the main site; there is an advert section top right, that changes. I got it to change by changing tabs within the main site page, as I was looking for one or two particular adverts.

                Is there an alternative way to flick through those useful adverts?

                if not, no problem, will just shift around the tabs to view them.

                    Hello Gerald, New look is ok on the bigger screen offered by PC’s etc but useless when trying to send messages on Smartphones as the black box blocks out the screen exactly where I am trying to compose a message. HELP!
                    yours frustratingly!

                        Oh, Gerald, how "advanced"? Or did you mean "advance"? ;)
