Just a small point, but it's a bit confusing at first glance: why do the chevrons in the header identifying the sub-forum point the "wrong" way? For instance, above this post it says:

"Home Station < Engineering Work < Rail Replacement Bus Service"

rather than "Home Station > Engineering Work > Rail Replacement Bus Service" as I'd expect.

EDIT: Actually scrub that. I've just logged on to another forum I've been using for years and seen the chevrons going the same way. Maybe it's me that's been wrong all this time...

I don't seem to be able to delete my posts in "Quizzes and Games" any more. Have I missed something?

Where I think some improvement are better and some not I quite glad moley or Chris as real name has had the time to actually think of it as a project to improve sort of.

One thing I could say do we really have to small print moley and tubeguru as moderators on each topic head we all know who u are and I have hit ur profile mistakenly so many times even though u handsome fellas I don't need to remind myself.:-)

Would it be suitable now to update the very front page of the Forum? (http://www.tubeforum.co.uk) Just a suggestion, but it's now 2015.
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

This is a rather strange thing to ask me to agree to, having upgraded the forum and changed the names of all the sections without asking me to agree to it ... :lol:

Not sure why this wasn't answered before, but I still can't. I always used to be able to delete my post if it came at the end of the thread, and it would be useful if that facility were reinstated.

Actually, I don't seem to be able to delete posts in this thread either. Has the facility been withdrawn completely?
