Hi Mike,

At the bottom of the reply window or post window you should see a couple of tabs, one of which is called upload attachment, click on choose file, find the image you want to add from your computer and then click add the file this will attach image files.

How about an introductions page? We now have 110 members but only 165 posts. There appears to be a reluctance for members to join in, is this because they know little about the people on the site, or perhaps feel they have nothing to contribute thinking that all the existing members are experienced skippers. Each of the posts seem to have plenty of views but few additional comments. We need to turn more of the guests viewing topics into members. (there always seems to be more guests than members online when I'm the site & I'm sure some of these have a lot to contribute)

If the site is to succeed in becoming the site of choice at least for UK based skippers we need to find a way of making it more active, any ideas?

There will be a natural anticipation to the forum, once people get to know it's here, new and working there will be more input I hope.

Makes my job nice and easy as it is though! I just need to get rid of these pesky Russians who think it is a good idea to try to spam the site with registrations and waste my time in having to delete them and ban their ip's!

On the boats for sale section ofthe website, which can be accessed from the Forum, I would like it to be mandatory for the seller to say where the boat is. No good if you live in Cornwall (for example) and the boat is in the Shetland Isles!

I think that the forum seems to e working quite well, the range of headings does seem to cover most things, possibly a section for unaffiliated classes, but keep up the great work
