Re: A Fond Farewell!

I'm not sure what happened, either, but it's now a bit late in the day to worry about it and try and fix it.

Good luck with the new group, and have a great Christmas.

Re: Advance Notice: Forums address to change shortly!

It's going to kill your SEO though isn't it? Depends on how the redirects are done. Ones I've done in the past with the correct redirect code have worked fine.

Not unless they want the same privacy issues - the requirements now are that even if you have a single paid link or advert of any sort that could result in financial gain you are a business and must have your full name, address, telephone number and email address publicly published.

Advance Notice: Forums address to change shortly!

For 9 years we've been thepoultrykeeper.co.uk and had no plans to change this, despite neither myself or Nigel still living in the UK.

Re: moderator needed
