  1. @hastings guy > Live | Shetland.org < this website is a good starting point. As Colin says, don't be seduced by pictures of sunny beaches and healthy young people skipping through flower meadows - the winters are long, dark, brutal, and an acquired taste!
  2. Some of you might have experienced problems accessing the site over the past few hours while we moved operations over to a new server - hopefully everything is back to normal now, and a couple of page refreshes should sort most issues. If you have any persistant problems then please do post to this thread. All the best, Admin Team
  3. A few gremlins are working some dirt. We have released the hounds and expect normal service to resume before long...
  4. We've reset this thread's "Female squad members in Lerwick Up Helly Aa" poll. The results from the 2017 poll are in the post above. It'll be interesting to see if opinions have changed over the past few years...
  5. Female squad members in Lerwick Up Helly Aa (2017 poll results) 1. In principle, should women be allowed to participate in Lerwick Up Helly-Aa as squad members? Yes - 53.2% (58 votes) No - 46.8% (51 votes) 2. Is logistics (already high numbers of guizers, waiting lists for squads etc) a valid reason not to allow women to participate in Lerwick Up Helly-Aa as squad members? Yes - 45.9% (50 votes) No - 54.1% (59 votes) 3. The current ‘male only’ squad member demographic of Lerwick Up Helly-Aa is…. Sexist - 39.45% (43 votes) Traditional - 60.55% (66 votes) 109 members voted. The poll was opened in 2017. The poll was closed and reset in Feb 2022.
  6. George, consider this a yet another friendly warning re: your anti-english 'contributions'. If you have a relevant point re: someone's nationality, then great. If not, it's just xenophobia.
  7. That should be the login issue sorted, and you can use your email or username again. The gremlin has been taken oot da back o da byre and given a goo treshin
  8. Thanks for pointing this out Rasmie. We've had a delve and a system upgrade we performed has changed some of the security functionality... (technical blah blah)... and for the meantime folk can only login using their email address, as opposed to their email address or username as before. It'll take a little reverse engineering, but we're on it.
  9. Our database seems to have decided to label all users as newbies. We've sent it to bed without any supper and we'll be having words with it in the morning.
  10. Here’s an idea. Let’s see if we can have a discussion without it going off topic with anti Westminster ‘witticisms’
  11. We had an email request for info on Ale Plants, so we thought we'd revive this thread. Anybody have one on the go, or know how someone would get started?
  12. @MuckleJoannie we've added the 'unread content' and 'mark as read' buttons (the peerie newspaper and tick icons) to the top userbar. Hopefully everything works as planned!
  13. @Dirk, we believe Fetlar Writer deactivated their account a peerie while ago (hence the 'guest' prefix), but hopefully they still visit the forum and will see your message. Fetlar Writer, if you're out there.....
  14. @MuckleJoannie, you can get to the same page using the menu... Forums > My Activity Streams > Unread content... But if you'd prefer the new content button back, we can liklee find a space for it!
  15. We've recently added interactive weather, shipping and flight pages - you'll find them in the top menu. You can grab the maps and move them about, and zoom in and out. The weather page lets you choose different views in the top right corner (wind and waves views is our favourite) On the shipping and flights pages you can click on the ship and aircraft icons and find out more info about them and what they're up to. We're finding it to be a peerie but addictive! We're still testing the pages out on different screensizes and devices, so please do let us know if you think something isn't working as well as it should. Mobile and tablet users, if you flip over to landscape view you should have a better experience. Cheers!
  16. Apologies @Muckle Oxters. We were updating the thread title and seemed to lose your post from a few moments ago. You were saying you were chuffed!
  17. @George. Your week ban was only lifted a day ago and you’re already breaching the forum guidelines again. We’ve removed the large, bold, red, all-caps shouty formatting from your post. Please, for everyone’s sake, work some sense!
  18. ^ trolling + ignoring warnings = banned for a week
  19. We've added some more news sources which you'll find in the 'news' dropdown menu at the top of each page. We hope you find them useful
  20. @George. you've peppered this and many other threads with vague, inaccurate and often xenophobic posts about things being 'inflicted' on 'us' and how it is 'undemocratic' but have failed to offer any detail. You ignore questions directly posed to you about your accusations but you demand that other users justify their points. You're trolling, and it's tedious. You have also been warned and blocked several times so we're removing your repetitious posts and our fingers are hovering over the 'ban' button unless you back up your accusations with evidence or reasoning. So in an effort to move on positively, please do provide some evidence or reasoning why joining the EEC or EU was undemocratic, why Westminster is undemocratic or what exactly Ted Heath, Anthony Eden, James VI or whoever else did that you don't like. Thanks in advance, the Shetlink admins.
  21. This feels like a good time to remind folk of the Forum use - guidelines and netiquette, so here's a few edited highlights with relevant emphasis added. Anyone who has been temporarily blocked and/or had posts removed recently for breaching the guidelines may find their bans getting longer....
  22. Interesting question @ReeseTheDundonian so we added a poll
  23. Hi @hakama, you need to head over to our partner website https://www.njord.market and post your advert there
