Need to vent? Fire away...

Hi everyone.

I know you've all had your ups and downs about the site and this hasn't been dealt with in the best way upto now. Please use this thread as a way to let off some steam about the forum, the site etc.

I promise you every comment you say is considered and taken into account.

If there's anything you wish to speak to me about away from the forum, please e-mail me at helpdesk@yourhorse.co.uk

Thanks

Hattie

Re: Need to vent? Fire away...

I dont see the big fuss with the naf adverts!!!Why does everyone have such a problem with them??they arent that bad, everyone is talking about them, and thats the whole point of an advert!!all these complaints are just free adverts for naf, "no publicity is bad publicity"!!

I really like the new site, I never used the forum until it was updated and I'm glad I didnt, when you consider how upset you all are about the new site, sounds like I saved myself alot of upset and hassle!!!

Like sissa said, enlarge the font on your pc, dont have a go at the staff if you dont know how, its easy!!

and uploading photo's etc is a doddle, ok the videos arent the most organised, but who wants to go through millions of sub categories just to find a couple of videos??

No-one expects their horse to be perfect, we accept and appreciate them for their flaws, it makes them individuals, why cant people accept the forum for it's flaws, and make constructive criticisms, not pointless 20 page rants about how awful it is??and then expect the improvement to be overnight!!!

I totally agree with what you say kirstyndshaky and with the naf ads its only like everything else like you see ads everywhere like footballers always have the same sponsers on there shirts and on buses etc... nobody moans about that i dont see any problem what so ever with the naf ads they dont cause any problems what so ever.

I think its great!!

Never give up, you can overcome anything if you keep at it!

Re: Need to vent? Fire away...

the one thing that does my hea din on this new forum is that when you come up to the page you cant simply press down to have a quick look as you start off on the search so you have to move the mouse tot hen be able to look down the page which is a nightmare witht he laptop! also there is too much to look at. im lucky i can read the small writing but you do miss alot easily as when you press down it skips through quickly so you may miss stuff! you also cant see when someone has posted somethign new on where you have written something. you have to search through the million pages to see if someone has posted something new on your comment. nightmare! what would be better is on your own page if you had an alert when someone has posted something new on your comment etc...

like on your page it says 'last post 2 hrs ago' but doent tell you who by! thats annoying! or maybe getting an emailing systen to notify you when someone has posted something new on your comment. that would be cool!

i do like being able to add pictures though! but way to many choises. i liked the main 4 choises we used to have!

Hi kirsty

 

Just to clarify - The NAF ads disappeared a little while ago because their campaign had run out. Over lunch it was renewed.

 

As for listening to you guys - there are loads of ideas and projects underway, which have been submitted by you!

 

Also, I hope you're finding the forum a little clearer to read!

 

Let me know if you have any other ideas/suggestions. I'd love to hear them!

 

Hattie x

if the font is too small for you, well make it bigger! you can do that on your pc! (go onto the toolbar at the top of the webpage, click view, than hover your mouse over text size, than click increase....)

I did this and it hasnt worked...do you know why? Will i have to change this for every site I am on then as normal sites have larger text and I dont want to view tham all in large - I work with often 5-6 different tabs open and have many sites runninga t any one time so this may not work for me (even if I could get it to work which I cant!)?
 

Be nice to your neddy

i absouloutly hate the new forum. i am near sighted and i can´t read the writing. whats the point in me looking at this when you are being so hypocritical about your ads. i have always read youur mag but i might now seriously reconsider!

Just joined and it took a couple of minutes to put pictures on my profile. I like it! No need to faff about with photo bucket or anything. Just needs a few more people on here so get the word out! =P. Think everybody needs to calm down and think about the real reason we're on here, to help and to be helped, and to talk about what we love most! =)
