Sorry not to be able to help. However I have E-mailed Luca at the Gramophone and hope for a reply at least, and perhaps a solution. If nothing emerges soon we could continue your discussion topic here I suppose!
I'll keep you informed!
Dear Chris, Parla and Paul,
Thank you for your continued patience with the new site at the moment. We are working extremely hard to reolve the issues you have run into and I am pleased to say that you should now be able to start a new thread.
Do continue to let us know when you find bugs and we will try to deal with these as quickly as possible. We will be restoring your ability to edit your own posts soon but until then, please go easy on each other over any typos.
Head of Marketing,
Where is the Sale/Wants Forum ?
What's happened to the forum? The worst-case scenario. Brodsky (currently aka Kontrapunk and some Finnish bloke) making would-be provocative posts, countered only by an occasional whimper from the incomprehensible tjh. Even Parla, despite a recent appearance, seems to have given up his heroic struggle, even though it was never quite clear what that struggle was all about.
So, where's that light switch?
After a long break on holiday in France, I too have found that the forum has become a very quiet place.
Whatever reasons individuals may have for keeping quiet, I would suggest that we just get on with things as usual.
Makes no difference to me whether I agree with others, find them talking nonesense, or they fail to appreciate my contributions.
As for trolls, let us just ignore them.
Parla, where are you? I for one am missing you.
I am still around, Socrates, but I sense the feeling of the slow death of the forum. I miss quite a few members who have contributed greatly to the creation and/or the development of some very substantive threads, including you.
Besides, I am always very busy as the end of the year approaches plus some extra challenges at a personal and family level keep me even busier.
Let's see if someone wishes to start a meaningful thread and, as ever, I will follow...
The respective responses by KontraPunk and Mike Zinzer are indicative that the forum has been invaded by trolls who have no other intent than to offend.
Come on all you grey, gay, and gutsy men and women of no fixed abode, let us get on with what we enjoy, that means making sensible, if inane to some, comments about the matters which concern us all when it comes to classical music(s). I miss you all despite our disagreements on so many things, so let us get back to where we were, commenting on each others banalities, and disturbing the peace. If I get drunk at Christmas, that is my problem.
Nothing wrong with grumpy old men and women, so long as we enjoy ourselves and bore the pants off of the trolls. They are such sad people with nothing original to say.
I could consider starting a new thread on cables or passive amplifiers. That should start the ball rolling!
Willem, my dear friend, where are you? Still following your advanced course on German?
Parla, and all the others, let me hear your voices!
I am still around......
I am still around......
Me too, though not very often these days: not much point visiting a dead forum. It would be nice to see who else is about.........
Parla, the responses by the trolls just proved my earlier remarks, they exhibit seer ignorance.
My proposal is to just get on with what we enjoy, even if this sometimes inane and plain boring.
Main message is not to respond to the content of their messages in any way. They thrive on your frustration.
