    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 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.

    Your Thoughts On Forums Required

    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.

    Members Ideas & Suggestions

    We still want to hear your ideas and suggestions on how we can improve the site for you. We're getting close to finalising things, but it's not too late for you to participate.

    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    With immediate effect the confusing rule about ‘Full’ and ‘Compact’ photo albums has been withdrawn.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

    Counties Clarification

    I use local knowledge as like Whitley bay = North Tyneside but sometimes it got changed to Northumberland & it is in North Tyneside... Ryton = Tyne & Wear but got changed to Co Durham & its in Tyne & Wear.. So i think best kept to the reporter who posts as they know that area reported on..

    Forum Under New Management

    Hi Bill, Just to add another big thank you for all your work & effort on here over the years. I certainly hope you can enjoy the Forum as a member (without all the responsibility that being the owner entails). You may enjoy the Forum more now... Best wishes,
  23. With effect from 1st May 2018 the 'All the fun of the Fair' Site will be led by a new Team First of all we would like to thank Bill for creating this fantastic website over 20 years ago, without him none of us would be here, we wouldn’t have this fantastic resource filled with fantastic information, photographs, and more importantly fantastic people. Many of us here wouldn’t have met people we now consider really good friends without this forum and without Bill creating it. When we were told that Bill was stepping down from his role we were all devastated, but between the Moderators and the Forum Panel we’ve had a lot of discussion on how to go forward. If you haven't seen Bill's announcement, you can read it here http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/89093-forum-under-new-management/ The first thing the new Team would like to introduce is a new unified voice for making announcements, this ‘The Team’ Forum Member is accessible by all team members, and in future any forum announcements will come from this account. The team consists of the 5 Moderators and 5 Panel Members which can be seen on http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/staff/ All forum decisions, announcements and rules will be voted on by the Team and the majority vote will then be put into practice. At the moment the team are discussing future registrations, supporter packages and forum structure, and possible moderator or panel additions. We will announce these in due course. Thank you for your patience in this matter, and we hope this transition goes smoothly for all parties.

  26. Dear All Access to the Rides List is now restricted to Forum Supporters ONLY. In an effort to make the forum self supporting financially - that is we keep it running, we initially restricted access to the Rides List to Forum Supporters and members who had contributed to the Rides List or posted funfair reports. For more information, please see the topic at http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/87116-restricting-access-to-the-rides-list/ This policy wasn't entirely successful and we announced further restrictions to the Rides List at http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/topic/88343-rides-list-forum-supporter-only/ Many, many thanks to those who have donated and are keeping our forum available. All the best Bill

    New Software

    Dear All I had to upgrade to the newest version of the forum software recently. There are a few changes "under the hood" that won't affect members and to be honest, I've not had the time to look too closely to see if there is anything that will benefit us. One change that you may notice fairly quickly is that the emoji's have changed (emoji's are the smiling faces, frowns etc that you can insert into your posts). If you click the smiley face in the editor toolbar, you will see that rather than the dozen or so you are used to, there are over a thousand. Another change is that typing colon, closed brackets no longer inserts a smiley. In any post type a colon (two dots on top of each other) and then start to type lol and a menu will appear with your familiar smiley. I hope I've explained that well enough - have a play 😊 👻 👮‍♂️ 🖐️ 💤 💥 🐼 🍀 🍽️ ⚽ 🚧 🌛 💰 ⛔ ✔️ 🚩 All the best Bill
