Facebook layout is a mess and I rarely bother with it for that reason. Hopefully things will remain in a similar format.


Thanks again to Azz, Meg and Mags for all your superb efforts.
Oh yes, I agree with that Dingalong.... also colour comes into it too.
The colours here are really easy on the eye. Some sites I browse around on the colours 'grate' on the eye which isn't a pleasant experience......


Gosh Azz, I'm glad I'm not in your shoes

.....hang on! Could this be why I've been getting junk mail from 'Latin American Cupid' and 'Indian Cupid' web sites?

No, I'm only joking, but they do keep sending me junk. Fortunately, it goes straight to my Spam folder.
Spam, spam, spam, spam....
You mean to say you havenít had the Russian Lovelies ones lol? I used to get those daily !
Iím with you anyway on nothing to hide , except my face too of course .

Thankyou Azz ,email address changed now .

I'm not sure I like the sound of posting from an email address. I hope that this change does not mean giving up any privacy. I like the anonymity of the forum model. The rise of facebook and google linked forums is disturbing. I hope that we will not be asked to login that way. As that would severely limit my opinions which I keep to myself on social media.

I agree with Pesta about the colour scheme. It's nice and relaxing here. A bit dated but old fashioned is good for many users! So I hope that the new format will try to retain as much of the style including font size.

Hi Annie

Your email address is already linked to your account here (all you have to do is ensure that your email address in your profile here is a current one - as you will only be able to set a new password on the new forum by getting a 'password reset' link sent to your email address).

With regards to privacy we have never shared or sold our membership emails/account data etc with anyone - in fact I'd actually like to remove Google ads from the new platform too (I agree that these companies have become too large!) but more on that later.

For now the important thing is that your email address in your profile is one that you still receive emails from - as you won't be able to set yourself a password (and thus gain access) to the new forum otherwise

You can check your email address here: https://www.over50sforum.com/profile...o=editpassword

Hi Azz I know the email is linked but I don't send data back by communicating via that link, just receive it.

I'm guessing the email I get notification through is the current one. I'll double check though.

On another subject will users lose all the photos etc? (on their profile albums)
