I didn't realise you couldn't change a forum name....had never looked. Well, anything is possible when you have the magic keys to the database, but perhaps I'll have a think first to make sure it doesnt break anything. Drop me an email to remind me though!

If you use the new community pages then you can edit your location in there - the forum only allows countries to be picked from a dropdown list, but the community bit overrides it.
See http://www.yachtsandyachting.com/community/

Cover me in chocolate bicuits? 3458 of them, to be precise? Perhaps just 2 would be better....I eat too much as it is...thank goodness for a super-high metabolism.

Got it! I've changed my location. Much more precise than the old "United Kingdom".

As for the chocolate biscuits, perhaps we should revive the Jaffa Cakes thread as a healthier alternative?

 Please start a new topic titled the "The definition of Bollo** according to Merlin boy" so that Newbies can avoid offending you.....

Eaaaasy! Scroll back in time to Merlinboy's first posts

... or Carshalton's, or Knightmare, or Sailor Girl's, or Dr Clifford's, or BWD... To be honest, the first six months of the forum were mostly taken by people slowly discovering what star you were going to get next.

In those days, four stars was all you could get, until Mark Jardine created the "5th Star Status" for Sailor Girl. She'd reached about 700 posts at the time. After that, "Really should get out more" got awarded at 500 posts.  

Brian decided he didn't want to be sooooo sad and stopped posting at 499 for a long time. He tried to come back recently but the old magic wasn't there any longer; he couldn't recognise anyone.

As for old codgers like Pierre (he joined in March 04), he's still here, alive and kicking, and the fountain of all knowledge!
