  6. Whilst I am grateful for the suggestion, I believe that would be counter productive - we will be deprived of a large number of excellent photo sets just because the poster isn't a forum supporter. Whilst I am keen to ensure the forum supporters cover the costs involved, I don't want to lose any photo contributions. That was very much my thinking. Although neither myself or the forum panel have defined a period yet, I personally was thinking of a much longer period. I will need to do some research to find out at what point photo topics become 'stale' and no longer get viewed - looking at the stats it does happen, but I don't know when. Many thanks for your input.

  8. I do hope it doesn't come down to that. I mean I have noticed a lot of photo topics recently with no slogans on, and I feel it does solidify the idea of making captions compulsory. Adam. Ps: I don't mean for this to come across as a dig at people who don't do captions, its just my opinion I guess.

    A very big thank you to you Darren for getting around the east and west London fairs. I know the feeling of having to be constantly on the move to capture everything. Keep up the good work. :)

  11. Could I please ask that all members who know about events check if they are listed in the Coming Events file and if they aren't listed please let me know. I'm putting a lot of effort into the list and it's disappointing when the first I know of an event is when a fair report appears! The minimum information I need is DATE, TOWN & COUNTY. The location, post code and lessee/organiser are useful, but not essential. Many thanks to all those who have supported the Coming Events - I think we've been successful so far
  12. Hi their I have a few jobs I am trying to fill and hope some of you may be able to help! I am looking for some funfair rides for The Angel Festival being held on the 7th and 8th July 2018 at Holkham Hall in Wells-next-Sea, Norfolk. The event will be ticketed and we would like the rides to be free for guests. If you could provide us with a quote that includes VAT and set up, for a family fun fair with a few various options that would be greatly appreciated. We would also be interested in any side stall games and food stalls as extras. Please send your quotes to Rachael@wearechippa.co.uk if you are interested =) I am also looking for the following My client is getting married in Bergerac - France on the 16th June 2018, and would like to hire out a carousel plus popcorn/candy-floss/ice cream stands. Would this be of interest to anyone? Please send your quotes to Rachael@wearechippa.co.uk Thank you =) Rachael
  13. Dear All We have a superb detailed resource in the Forum Transport List and I am extremely grateful to all those who have contributed to it's success - THANK YOU. However, for a number of reasons, the Transport List is currently a little messy with differing formats. I intend to invest some time and effort bringing the list up to the high standard of the Rides List. This will involve adding all the current photos as replies. The upside of this work will mean that members who supply the photo's will get the deserved credit and the format will be consistent across the Transport list and will be consistent with the Rides list. The downside is that adding the photos as replies will mean they show up to those members who check the forum using the "View New Content" button. I appreciate that this is a minor inconvenience, but is the only way we can bring the list up to the standard of the Rides list. To lessen the inconvenience, the replies will only be added in small batches thereby lessening their impact . This will obviously mean this is a long term project. Unless you would prefer we blitz this - more impact, but over quicker? In any event, it maybe useful to consider how I use the "View New Content" facility? I click "View New Content" and then right click any topic that I am interested in, I then open it in a new tab. When I have all the topics I'm interested in open in new tabs, I click the "Mark Site Read" button - I have my topics to read and the rest are read. Works for me Again, I thank everyone for their continued support. All the best Bill

  22. Dear All We have a superb resource with our Forum Topic based Rides List - Over 3500 are listed with details and the majority have photos attached. YOU, our members have been extremely diligent in ensuring the list is as comprehensive as we can make it - THANK YOU! Historically the Rides List Topic ONLY had the most recent, up-to-date photo displayed in it. As a newer photo became available it replaced the older photo which was lost from the forum for good. Recently we changed this policy and allowed the 'older' photo to stay on as a reply. We also actively encouraged historic photos to be added and again this has been hugely successful due to the enthusiasm of our members - THANK YOU! However, we are seeing more and more photos being added to the Rides List Topic's where the only 'change' is to the Location or Date - some Rides are becoming clogged up with photos all essentially showing the same view and this will only get worse as time goes on. In an effort to ensure that photos on Rides List Topics show something unique, all Rides List Topic replies will need to be approved by a Moderator before they are available to our members. If your photo shows the ride significantly different or your photo is a vast improvement over the one we have, your reply will be approved and the photo put onto the top topic post. If it shows the same thing it will be deleted. I hope that you will support this policy - we want to ensure that all our Rides List photos are unique and useful rather than pages of duplicate photos. PLEASE NOTE - This does NOT mean we don't want to see your photos - WE DO! But please consider where you are posting them - perhaps a topic in the Photo Forum would be more appropriate? The following guide was previously posted: If you have a photo that shows the ride DIFFERENT/UPDATED, please reply to the relevant topic. As discussed in a previous topic, my thoughts on useful photos would be: Day/Night shot Different decor Build up photos Full flash/minimal flash Load with a different prime mover In action/still Winter or Xmas/Normal theme Anything exceptional/interesting (e.g. built up outside Buckingham Palace, has a celebrity on it - bad examples, but hopefully you get my thinking ) A historic photo that shows the same decor/state could be interesting showing that a ride hasn't changed in 20 years. This will be difficult to quantify as 20 photos, one from each year showing the same state will defeat the object of the rides list. Again, many thanks for your support in this matter. All the best Bill
  23. Yet another great contribution to the Forum, Bill.
