    Members Ideas & Suggestions

    On the main page, I have always felt like the Current Fair Reports should be underneath Coming Events. This is because the two are closely linked: One tells you what fairs will be coming soon, the other tells you what fairs are actually on now. I'm going to sound really lazy now, but I always feel as though I have to scroll too far down the page to get to Current Fair Reports

    Forums & Layout

    One of our projects on taking over the forum was to simplify the forum layout making it easier to post in the right place. We have consulted with the members and discussed among The Team and made the following changes: The Photo Club hasn't been used and has been deleted The "Supporters Only" forum hasn't been used and has been deleted The Circus section, which has been declining for some time is now incorporated into "Off Topic" Living Vans (an important section, but under used) has been incorporated into Fairground Transport Showland in the News has been incorporated into the General Message Forum Personal Announcements/Contact Requests has been incorporated into the General Message Forum The Transport List is now a sub forum of Fairground Transport Vintage Fairground and Projects have been merged and are now in the main category The New Rides/Changes and the Rides List Admin Forum (mainly duplication) have been merged We believe that these changes make the forum index page more compact and easier to navigate Many thanks to those that suggested changes

    Forum Rules

    To follow on from our request, and after heavy discussion within the Team, the revised rule list is in place. 'Thank You' to everyone who responded with suggestions and views/opinions to our request in this topic .

    Forum Rules Changes

    Forum Rules "We have listened, reviewed, discussed and rewritten the rule list. We think the rules are just common sense and are designed to keep the forum on track so we can discuss our interest. We also believe that more important than the rules is our new ethos behind moderating. We, The Team, are determined that moderation will be kept to a minimum and we will only intervene when absolutely necessary. If ANY member feels that a post of theirs has been moderated excessively, or unnecessarily, PLEASE bring it to the attention of another member of the team so we can review, as a Team, the decision." Forum rules are on the link at the top of the page.

    The Side Bar Recent Topics/Replies should now be back visible. Despite the ticker, you'd be suprised at how many are still saying "I can't access the Rides List, why?". However it's now turned off.

    Thanks for the speedy response; very impressive. While this is being fixed can the irritating scrolling message at the top of the screen also be removed. I know it can be halted but restarts every time a new forum is selected. I usually understand an instruction when I have read it once or twice but to be constantly reminded is something I and I suspect everyone else can manage without.

    Hi Eddie It's not you, it disappeared with the latest software update. We are looking into it. Please bear with us for a day or two.

    I seem to have lost the menu on the right hand side of the home page listing recent topics & recent replies. How do I reinstate this please?

    A better division between Modern & Vintage would be nice. A vintage transport section, and moving the Living wagon page into the main bit. The circus forum does have a walking dead feel to it as well.

    The number of forums seems fine to me, but the order of those in the ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR section doesn't seem very logical. For instance, the order suggests that Fairground Transport is more important than Rides. I can see other anomalies too - if Fairground Transport and Transport List are together, then Ride/Show/etc and Ride List should be too. I've got used to the order, but I wonder how new members react.

    “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all the people all of the time” (Poet John Lydgate as made famous by Abraham Lincoln). Press on regardless, guys. You should be praised for taking on this thankless task.

    May I ask why you don't include a list of the members of the team in here?

    What one person doesn't want to have, is nice to have for others. So, when I keep that in mind, I cannot say that there are parts of this forum which should be scrapped or not. However, if I look at the things what interest me, than the Rides list, Transport list, Circus, Fairground Modelling, Themepark and the Current funfair reports are not things I'm interested in. So those could be put with the trash, where I'm concerned... 😁 But I expect to have stepped on some toes here...

    Can't win can we . Members in the past have stated that the Forum had too many rules and, it wasn't a very friendly place and was run like a dictatorship. We have tried to involve Members in things a lot more since the Team took over and started to change a few things. I for one thought that we were on the right track, I've noticed that photo posts are on the increase which is pleasing. However it appears that whatever we do there is a small number of people who we will never please.

    The intention is to transform ATFOTF into a much friendlier and happier place to be, for all our members, so consequently, these "endless announcements" are inevitable I'm afraid.

    How about an end to endless announcements by the team
  21. The Team are now looking into the number of forums which we operate on the site. We'd be very interested to hear your views if you think that we should amalgamate any of them or if there are forums which you think that we no longer require. Your thoughts please!

    Photo Rule Changed

    With immediate effect the confusing rule about ‘Full’ and ‘Compact’ photo albums has been withdrawn. Members may post photo topics in the relevant forum without having to worry about tags, type or quality of photos or using separate forums. At present the other restrictions still apply - The photos must be a maximum of 800x600 and hosted on site. We would like to remind members that captions on photo topics are not compulsory, but have been shown to be more popular with members than those without. They’re also more useful in that the photos can be found using the sites search facility. We hope this makes it easier and simpler for members to post photos. Regards The Team

    Forum Rules

    @Wood1 Thanks for your response. The whole reason for us asking for the members views is to re-do the rules 😊 Don't forget, the only reason the existing rules are so in-depth is due to problems that have been encountered over the years. Hence our request to you all to tell us what needs changing, altering, re-wording, deleting, editing . This is already under discussion by The Team 😉

    Forum Rules

    Regarding the rules ,I am sure they have got a lot stricter over the last 2 years over what I consider very petty things. The main rules regarding Accidents and naming showmen are all sensible and protect the site from legal action, my issue is with what I consider to be rules for the sake of rules, and feel the amount of rules on here are just crazy for the sake of rules. I have posted many comments on here previously all innocent never saying any thing bad about a showmen only to find a moderator has removed it ,when that happens a lot it is really annoying.One item that really sticks out and annoys me and I think highlights how petty these rules are ,2 years ago their was a report I think of a showmen's waltzer on the car park opposite Fantasy island ,that year their was a reverse Bungee ride next to it ,and I asked whose ride was it as I had never seen such a ride take so much money .I don't think their was any thing wrong with that but the moderators did. I have had several instances like that only over the last 2 years ,so now their is no point in contributing anything as it will be removed ! I would like to know how thick the rule book is ,I imagine at least the size of a phone book ,whilst you need some rules ,the amount of rules on this site are way to excessive.Bill did a brilliant job on setting up this site ,but the rules now need bringing back to a sensible level that most can understand. If their is a question about something on a fair report why can you not ask it after the fair report not have to start a new thread .
