Stupid question but got no idea and been bugging me scratch

Here is the technical answer Laughing

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_bot



But simply, we need them, the bots here are google yahoo bing etc, these gather key words, so that when you do a search on google, or one of the others it brings up this site.  They are in this instance useful and good.

Thanks for that CF. Makes sense. Will take your simple explanation as opposed to reading up on the technical side of it all.

Cheers.

Does anyone remember an interview with Goncalo Amaral where he mentions the DNA evidence had been planted in the hire car? Please, please don't think badly of me, but I seen a tweet that mentioned this earlier and vaguely remember reading about it, or is this a myth that I've read?

DDL are you perhaps thinking of the video in this blog by Good Quality Wristbands? It contains a video made by pro Macs that suggests GA planted the cadaver. Sorry I cant copy the video url for some reason.

No chirps, wasn't that, I've been trying to find it but will keep looking. I have to get round it because it doesn't make sense. Maybe it was on some pro site, but then again I don't think my chill levels would let me read any of that for long lol x

Hi Admin Crew,

Could I ask that you make representions (aka complaint) to Forumotion on behalf of its users in general, who are increasing using tablets, phones, fondleslabs etc to access the forum ?

The forum software appears to have originated in the era of screens, keyboards, mouse. Or even before ? Who remembers Green Screens?

So this means that it is effectively impossible, or at best very difficult, to paste/edit text, and worse, jpegs to posts.

When everyone is feeling better, maybe you could have a go at them and demand something that is usable ??
Cheers

Very Happy

Can you alter the layout so the latest post made comes at the top of the page...

ETA - sorry I think that's the portals job but never use that.

Yes you should Andrew. I know.

Andrew, I have tried, but it doesn't seem to work, I must be doing something wrong somewhere.  Embarassed   I am not very computer savvy I'm afraid, but will work it out one day Smile

It may be me, but I wish there was more contrast between the background and the writing (which is rather pale).
Just been on Pat`s site and there`s better contrast and it`s easier to read.
What do others think.

Yes (and thanks for persevering) - IMO it gives a better contrast and is less taxing on the eyes, but I`ll go along with the consensus. flower

As it was it was just dark blue, medium blue and light blue so no definition.

It is a lot clearer to read in black I think, it stands out more.
Oh yes, just look at the quotes and the replies!

My only "gripe" about the whole forum is the banner made up of pictures on the Home page. I absolutely detest, with an absolute passion, that shortbread tin picture of Maddie in the red dress. It really does make me want to throw up now, every time I see it. It's been exploited to within an inch of it's life. It shows poor Maddie for what she is - a money-making commodity, fronted by a manipulative advertisement designed to tug at the heart-strings and make people part with their cash. It is, and always was, of zero use in any "search". I also suspect the poor wee tot has had highlights put in and is wearing lip gloss. That picture really is repulsive and I try to avoid seeing it, but it's not easy when every single paper prints it in as large a format as possible, every time there's so much as a snippet of news.
