Forum Announcement: Read this before your first post
Welcome. Before you post your first message, please read this.

This section is called  Forum Issues.  If you have any problems with using the forum - for example, if you are unsure how to start a thread or post a reply - this is the place to get help. Feel free to ask any relevant question, no matter how basic.

You will also find some useful advice in our Help pages.

If your post is not relevant to this part of the forum, return to the main page and choose the best section for your post.

Here are a few guidelines to help you (and others) to get the most from the forum:
  • Posting in existing threads. If you want to contribute to an existing thread – for example by commenting on the points raised or answering someone's question – do so by replying to the thread. Don't start a new thread to reply to an existing one.

  • Starting a new thread. But do start a new thread if you wish to start an entirely new discussion or ask an entirely new question. Don't tag your post onto someone else's thread.

  • Choose a meaningful title. When starting a new thread, choose a title that gives a good idea of what the thread is about. Members shouldn't have to click through in order to know if the thread is likely to be of interest to them. Titles like "Great news" or "I have a question" are not useful titles.

  • Keep it friendly. We do not tolerate offensive posts, bad language or personal attacks on members. This does not mean that you can't disagree with other members' opinions. On the contrary, we encourage everyone to express their point of view,  provided they do so in a polite and tolerant way.
