    Hey mate ,

    I know this may seem really petty (and I apologise for any offence), but it effects the way I view your postings... To be honest I have had trouble ever reading through a whole posting of yours. I just get so darn distracted by all the changes in font sizes and everything. I look at it and it bamboozles me like a shopping catalogue - I have short attention span for things like that.

    I really mean this in the kindest spirit I can and just thought I'd let you know how distracting it is to me. I'd like to be able to read what you say.

    Cheers

    Grahame

    yeh i see what you mean eric,

    the posters usernames are not live anymore so if we wanted to we can't click ther to send them a pm.

    the things you never take much notice of hey? until you need them.

    and some user names in black others green??

    Thanks for posting this, I hadn't yet noticed.

    I've sent a message to Murray. Awaiting his reply. There were some spam PMs floating around, I wonder if Murray is working on that?

    Bill (with the weeds) :lol:

    Green names are forum moderators. (though moderators can be black too... it depends on the "group" they choose in their profile).

    Thanks I'll remember that - and watch out for the return of PM's.

    Hey all,

    Received a reply from Murray stating he had disabled PMs until a solution to the PM spam issue is installed.

    Without speaking for michaelangelica, i believe constructive critiscm can be useful and it can be hard to present constructive criticism in a way that is not percieved in a negative manner, kudos to you for trying to help.

    Re: Message to Michaelangelica

    Problem for me with the loss of PMs is that I need to contact Michaelangelica through the list to deliver a machete to him but can't make contact. I'm reluctant to post personal contact details on an open forum. Any ideas anyone?

    Re: Message to Michaelangelica

    if you let any idiot onboard by virtue of a couple of validated posts, you will get spammed. Fact of the medium.
    and even if
    you
    don't get spammed,

    there is

    still the
    problem
    of
    the
    idiot
    :lol:
    how do you go reading this?
    as a student of Typography, I personally stand in awe of MA's deft use of font, size, bizare layouts et al.
    I think readability was never his strong point anyway...
    but shit, the man was an artist with the mouse.
    i vote we keep him, even if it is just for the colour :axe:
    'tip of the trilby to permasculptre'.
