    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Any time, young man! ;) I was still pretty young when I started all of this. I was only 8, but I aged to rapidly after meeting everyone... :D I was 31 when I started on the forums and 32 when I attended my first CF-Live. I was definitely the old fart of the site at that point (actually, there...

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    I realised that I didn't actally answer Howie's question/discussion (but neither has anyone else, so I'm not feeling too bad) - How do they rank? So, I went through old pages, trip reports, photos, etc. I've got a kind of idea now. I count 33 CF-Lives over 15 years. I know people who have done...

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    Definitely was - I remember it clearly :) Nobody belived me - the bastards! So, my first live was a Thrills'n'Chills - early open Blackpool back in 2005. Pretty unremarkable, but I had no idea what to expect. It's so daunting just turning up into a big group of people and trying to "get...

    Your Favourite Ever CF Lives

    It's not a cowboy hat, but that would have been me :) I still have a video in the making of that Live... I'm getting worse than Slade! Too many great memories. I think Yorkshire Tripper really stands out for me. That was kind of the height of CF-Lives for me. Perfect weather, the right goons...

    How do I get more points on CF?

    The point system is built in, so it's possible to still earn them. They're now only for things like hitting post milestones and numbers of likes, etc. The bit that is turned off is for the mods. So the wordsearch and a few others. Also the ability to spend points, but nobody used that anyway...

    Phones

    I've kind of been involved in advising on this kind of stuff for a few years (erm, about 15) - so what I've learned in that time... Ecosystem Android or iOS. However, swapping ecosystems is very hard for people. It's more than just investment in apps, it's a completely different way of using...

    Who is your desired winner of the Conservative leadership contest?

    Yeah, Boris Johnson is a real Marmite contender. Neither he or Marmite are capable of successfully running a country ;) I do wonder if the Conservatives know they're screwed, so they're picking him as a clown to chuck under the big red blame bus, not realising the total chaos he could cause...

    The Forums Upgrade: Do you prefer the New CoasterFORCE or Old CoasterFORCE?

    So true... Only I wish I'd been Rick this time... :P

    The Forums Upgrade: Do you prefer the New CoasterFORCE or Old CoasterFORCE?

    I also use a monitor :P When I get a chance, I want to look at if I can do a fading background. So it'll be the background image (or colour if you've picked a solid background) which will then fade towards the bottom of the screen to the colour scheme you've picked. I'm sure I can do it with...

    Do you know what? The template I really wanted was a dark theme one - was like stepping back 15 years. However, it had much more limited options (like background choices). So we decided to keep with similar to the last two changes. Sorry :P

    The Forums Upgrade: Do you prefer the New CoasterFORCE or Old CoasterFORCE?

    @Kw6sTheater - Don't worry. I'm old enough and fat enough to take this kind of thing in my stride. I don't feel it's personal, just healthy debate. I'm well aware that people don't like change and I'm well aware that you can never please all of the people all of the time. So it's fine to have...

    The Forums Upgrade: Do you prefer the New CoasterFORCE or Old CoasterFORCE?

    Do you mean like it was on the old site? There's the "What's New" button on the top now and also a drop down from the forums menu on the top. Always there. It's not quite the same, but it's more convenient if you're at the bottom of a topic. There's still a "Jump to new post" button on the...

    The Forums Upgrade: Do you prefer the New CoasterFORCE or Old CoasterFORCE?

    And so it begins... Already 😆 I'll be frank, I don't care. I liked the old forums, they came together nicely. There's usually a period of a month or two of tweaking before they're there. So this won't be the finished product, but it's pretty close. However, we had to move and the jump we made...
