There are a few things that could be changed to make using this Forum less of a hassle. The number of problems people find when trying to access or use it may be preventing quite a few people from using it?
Some things have been improved, but there are several other issues that could maybe be solved?
We are working to improve the log in process, so apologies for any hassles guys. If you are having trouble logging-in contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will generate a new password for your user account. Based on previous targeting we have high level of security on our site. Currently multiple log ins are blocked, after a number of tries we will block the user and IP to fight against bots and other nasties. If the user is valid they can try again after 48hrs. If you do not receive your password check your spam settings and try again, multiple incorrect log ins will lead to an account freeze so if problems persist contact me directly at email address above. Cheers, Dan
I’d like to say I’ll be using this Forum, but the hassle of obtaining a login, which is limited to single instance, makes that a bit questionable.
I use an iPhone and ipad, the former to stay in touch and the later to consume content. They synch open websites and share passwords which is superb, but it seems that isn’t supported.
As for sharing any content, especially pictures which are limited in size to 512kb (I’d forgotten such a measure existed) seems small.
I guess with the website / magazine app to share broadcast content, and facebook & youtube to share user content, what is the point of this (or indeed any) forum?
For me the key point is that it is far more open and accessible than Facebook or other social media.
Great for general chat with a wide circle of people from across the globe and sharing stuff.
