on the forum recently.

First of all, a new member, Haggis1, posts a link to a website of his, petitioning for the Scottish ensign to be flown by Scottish sailors. Pretty innocuous I thought, and Haggis (the real one) was one of the Forum Founding Fathers.

So I replied to Haggis1, asking if he was related to Haggis. When I came to post the answer, the upload took a huge amount of time and an error screen appeared, saying there weren't any posts in this topic. I assumed that asking for the scottish ensign was akin to terrorist activities and that one of the moderators deleted the whole topic.

However, unknown to me and probably about at the same time, my Posts count got reset to zero and I have become a Newbie! Years of hard work down the drain!! Shocked

It hurts, you know...

So, well done Turnturtle, you've become the King of the Forum. As for me, few might remember that I used to be the forum mum...   

 

Seriously, anyone knows what happened to Haggis1 post and to my stars?

The Scottish flag post was deleted as it was not relevant to the forum it was posted within.

No idea about the stars though....but if 3 independant people can confirm an approximate number of posts for you, I will weild the mighty power of admin, and kick you up into the higher echelons of 5 stars again.....mum...

Hi Mags

 

BNS is the forum mother - all hail the great and good

Isabele was at around 3300 - 3400 posts, and I think should be the first and only holder of the mystical sixth star - Computer Implant Complete

I formally second this post and confirm the veracity of the numbers quoted.

ISA IS DA MUMMY !!

Are you kidding Mags? Everyone knows that BNS is the Mum!

And she had several thousand posts to her name.

BNS? Never heard of her.  Oh wait, is she the one who bought a 18' skiff?  Or is she the one who sails a Feva in Dubai?  Or maybe its a skiff in Dubai?  I dunno, I think she had about 15 posts (per day).

I do know who she is! Just needed to know a roughly-correct number to assign, and of course I couldnt accept her own evidence in such an important matter.....

The mythical sixth star eh? Surely a master-poster such as she would be able to transcend mere stars, and interact with the forum like Neo manipulates The Matrix?

Either way, I'll need her to bribe me with more chocolate cookies before I will consider anything over 3000 posts!

Whilst I've got you here Mags, is there any chance you could change my name?  'Chew my NS' seems more appropriate.

Clap  Clap Yipee! Thank you, thank you everyone for your support!

And MerlinMags, you're a star (and I know about those, I've had 5 to my name for a little while now ). When I come to the Dinghy show in March, I will outdo Headfry and cover you in chocolate biscuits Tongue Tongue

 

PS. How did you get to change the location under your name? Guilford isn't that far from here: I sometimes cycle there and back in a day, with a half-way stop in Southwater. Might see you around!

xxxx Isabelle
