    It's now nearly 24 hours since the forum went live, and a few people have had problems with the forum, so here are some of the questions and answers we've had so far:

    "I can't log in"

    Have you received your registration email?
    If you have, and you've clicked on the link in the email to activate your account, please send a copy of the registration email to webmaster@leicestershire.com with details of your problem.

    If you haven't had your registration email, your email may have been blocked by a spam filter, you may have entered the wrong email address, or there may be other problems with your email account. Contact webmaster@leicestershire.com and I can manually approve your account.

    "The time is wrong"
    The default timezone setting for new users is GMT. We're currently one hour ahead of GMT, so to make sure the forum is showing the correct time you'll need to go into your profile settings and change your timezone to GMT + 1 hour

    "How do I use different colours/fonts?"
    The easiest way to use these options is to type the message normally, then use your mouse or keyboard to highlight the text you want to change, then select the font options. This will insert the correct formatting codes. If you try to use the formatting codes as you type the message there's a chance that the codes will be changed/deleted.
    If you do insert the codes as you type the message, click on "close tags", if you open a tag but don't close it the formatting won't work.

    "Auto login doesn't work"
    Auto login should work if you tick the box when you first log in. If you've done this but you're not logged in automatically it may be a problem with your cookie settings. Make sure your browser is set to accept cookies, then log in again and see if it remembers you the next time you return.
    If it still doesn't work, try deleting your cookies, then starting a new broswer session before logging in again.

    "Why is my name appearing as "Guest?"
    If you're posting as an unregistered user, y9our name will appear as "guest" if you leave the username box empty. You can still enter a user name even if you're not registered, but the system won't let you use a name that's been registered by someone else.

    If anyone has any more questions, please ask.

    What a great forum 8)

    I would!
    I'd like a seperate section for Prediction League, to make it easier and just to see if it would be successful :)

    LCFC stuff should stay in the LCFC forum.

    People won't look in the prediction league forum, so not as many people will enter. So then you'll have to post reminders in the LCFC forum, which defeats the object of having a separate forum.

    Having a sticky thread each week is the best way of handling it.

    Do you spend your whole life going round looking for things to moan about?

    If you're 'just pointing out' something why did you include the tiny text at the bottom?

    If you don't like it, don't use it.

    I dont like it, but it beats the OS, we have no decent messageboard for lcfc fans now so this is the only option.

    I would sooner this was just a Leicester bored like Petrescu. People want a forum with just Leicester fans, not other fans there aswell i.e Wolves.

    It was wrong to split up all the forums. If I had it my way I would call the site something Leicester related and I would have these forums:

    Leicester City
    General Chat
    Other Football related

    This is only a preference though and I can quite happily live with it how it is.

    You have x amount of leicester fans out there but you have god knows how many other fans who would use something like this. At the moment this costs webbo to run maybe if he brings in alot more people he can make a bit of cash out of it for himself with advertising etc, which could mean he might make some improvments to benefit everyone.

    At the end of the day if this place was so bad you wouldn't be here!!!! Webbo at the minute puts in money and time with no return and all we do is slag off what he's doing!!

    Has anyone ever heard the saying 'don't bite the hand that feeds you'

    I'm not slagging off Webbo by any means, I'm so grateful for what he has done for this forum and my site.

    It is only how I personally would have things, not a complaint.

    How about a forum like this one for all fans of everything, and a forum just for Leicester fans?? :wink: :wink:
