Title: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: The 12th Marquis of Sixfields on May 15, 2010, 11:36:28 am
As in 1994 NTFC moved from the County Ground to Sixfields, so too is the time for us to move. After Boardnation seemingly went belly up in a Chester style earlier this week like a phoenix from the flames a new forum has been created.
I've not much time now so just **** about in here for a bit until I sort things out properly, probably early next week I'd have thought.
You will have to re-register unfortuanately.

just a couple of things, I've turned off changing usernames so think carefully. Also, you can't pm until a et amount of posts, think its either 5, 10 or 15. I can't remember what I set it at now. This is to stop spammers. Any questions and ask them in here. I can't promise to know the answers as I'm new to this board too but i can  try and find out. Board email is still admin@thehotelend.co.uk

Bingo!

Karl - it appears the problem may well be browser based!  Got in fine on Firefox, so MS IE may be the culprit.

Working fine for me on firefox as well.

You can add it in your profile settings, I've tried looking for a global add for it but can't find it yet. Same as censored words. So cover up childrens eyes, f***heads 8)

Fair play for getting the site back up and running in such short order.


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: bigcitylights on May 15, 2010, 14:59:46 pm
Running much quicker than the old site (may it rest in peace).

Fair play Karl.

No worky on Chrome.

http://www.smfserver.com/forums/thehotelend/index.php

but this gets around it.

I would imagine a lot of IE & Chrome users won't realise the site's back up.

Well done on getting things up and running again Karl, there's a fair bit going on at the club right now so I was a bit gutted at the lack of anywhere to chat about the Cobblers

Looks a lot smarter and tidier than the old MB. Well done for sorting it all out so quickly Marquis. :)

Post by: DrillingCobbler on May 15, 2010, 16:22:48 pm
I was going to rebrand as well but because my brand is so strong and respected I decided against it. Good work Marquis on setting up a new site so quick!

For anybody who hasn't discovered this yet, you can get back the smileys that we had on the old Hotel End by changing your smileys setting to "classic" in your profile.

I'd just like to say that I didn't have to resort to talking to my wife, but I did get some work done and went climbing.

Can we try to avoid these little lapses in the future.  I was raring to read a thread  about those transfer listed and then it all went **** up.  Now I'll never know those words of wisdom.


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: DustCobb on May 15, 2010, 20:06:01 pm
The demise of the other board led to me having to actually do work at work, it was quite a shock to the system.

It seems to want to log me out a lot. Fingers crossed I think persistent logging in and out has fixed it now.


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: HertsCobbler on May 16, 2010, 10:17:50 am
It seems to be linked to your browser.

The old site appears to be back on line!


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: LaindonCobbler on May 16, 2010, 10:28:53 am
All seems fine now. Will be interesting to see what the regular posters settle on, this or the Boardnation version.

I can access the old site at http://www.thehotelend.cjb.net/ seems to work on IE but get annoying popups on Mozilla.

This still works - as this board is better working, we should embrace the brave new world.


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: The Hask on May 16, 2010, 10:59:55 am
I agree with brave new world - i guess when time allows a mesage will be put up at old site diverting to here


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: The Hask on May 16, 2010, 11:03:43 am
I am loving some of the features here (which is when someone will tell me they were available on the old one) such as display all unread posts in one.


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: Son Of Geoff on May 16, 2010, 13:15:08 pm
why have some people got massive blank spaces in their signatures?

EDIT: Forget that. I think there's possibly big ads in between some posts but my ad block is stopping me seeing them.

Post by: PineWoody on May 16, 2010, 16:15:53 pm
Im working now on IE, I did have to use the longer address though, on the shorter one I couldn't log in. Now, can we get back to realising that I am (hopefully)GTA Champion for this season.


Title: Re: Welcome to the new Hotel End
Post by: DustCobb on May 16, 2010, 21:22:39 pm
Can we also remember who won the Grand National Sweepstake please....!

I have no access to the old board at all so that kinda means i'm stuck using this one from now on!

I made the mistake of having the boardnation url in my browser and couldnt get on... then used thehotelend.co.uk and got here...

First impressions are its a lot faster but I will need to get used to it a bit

Seeing as I was top of the prediction league when the boardnation board died, does that mean I automatically win that?

No, just me then. Hi, I'm Fred and I support NTFC. Woo. There's a little about me, now I'm off to the shops to celebrate this grand opening with a bottle of something fizzy. Perhaps appletiser.

so thats it then....the old board is no more?? Is there no way now I can get the GTA and Prediction League threads back?
Damn....all that hard work!! lol!

Anyway, onto this nice new green board.....anyone else had problems logging in and staying logged in? It lets me log in ok, but when I go to any thread it goes back to the "welcome guest" bit and asks me to log in again!
Dont know what ive done different this time but its the first day in the last 5 that its let me stay logged in long enough to actually make a post!!

Anyone??? Is it another quirk with Windows 7?? I keep finding problems with it!!
