Forum news

Hello all,

Sorry it's been a while - Jamie HQ has been busier than ever, and I know our attention to you guys has been less than ideal. I thought I'd let you know know a couple of things:

First of all, I've finally just sat down with our new developers (as you may have heard, Eric left us shortly after Christmas) and we're making some tweaks to how we deal with your reports. Currently the process of removing spam and banning the culprits is quite cumbersome, and this should heighten our ability to stay on top of it. Which brings me onto my next bit of news...

I will soon be stepping away from the community side of my role to focus entirely on online editorial. My replacement as community manager, Abigail, will start at the end of March, and I think you and she will get on brilliantly - I'm really looking forward to introducing her to you.

So, team, hang tight - things are about to start looking up. We've just launched a massively improved member recipes section, while we're on the subject of improvements - I hope you've all had a chance to have a look!

All my best,
M

Thanks, Merlin, for your update/news post!  thumbsup ....All the Best, with your Online Editorial position! We will miss you here at Jamie's Forum!

I wasn't aware that, Eric, was no longer with you all, thanks for letting us all know! And, Best Wishes to Eric also with his new ventures/adventures! Plus, I/we will be looking forward to 'meeting', Abigail, before your change-over at the end of March!

Thanks once again, Merlin - lovely to hear from you! And, thanks to your new Developers who assist with the 'mechanics' of Jamie's Forum running smoothly as well!

Thanks for the update, Merlin. Good luck with your new venture.

Will be glad when the spam issue is sorted. Any idea when the avatar issue will be? I'm appearing as a huge slice of pizza to some and (still) as Stevie to others. I tried to upload my Facebook profile pic with no luck.

Thanks for the translation, TWR smile  I thought it might have been some obscure (to me) reference that I should've known about wink  (yep, just finished a sentence with a preposition)  whistle
