  1. 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.
  2. Here’s an idea. Let’s see if we can have a discussion without it going off topic with anti Westminster ‘witticisms’
  3. 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?
  4. We've added a poll tae da tap o da thread
  5. @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!
  6. @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.....
  7. @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!
  8. 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!
  9. 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!
  10. @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!
  11. ^ trolling + ignoring warnings = banned for a week
  12. 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
  13. @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.
  14. 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....
  15. Interesting question @ReeseTheDundonian so we added a poll
  16. Hi @hakama, you need to head over to our partner website https://www.njord.market and post your advert there
  17. @George. ironically, we refer you to the section of our T&Cs above (Avoid sweeping statements and generalised moaning) from the post you have actually quoted. The council is a large organisation employing 1000s of folk across many departments - we assume you don't mean the Essey Kert drivers or teachers when you refer to 'they'
  18. A pre-emptive reminder from the forum T&Cs In summary Constructive critique and scrutiny = good Slagging off 'da cooncil' = bad Remember that 'da cooncil' are just normal folk going to work and doing their best.
  19. You could try a wanted ad on our partner website https://www.njord.market/accom-wanted/1 and/or the Shetland Accommodation group on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/284411785003452 Good luck with your search
  20. The automated feed is on the our to-do list, but in the meantime here's the link https://www.njord.market/
  21. Thanks for letting us know about the adverts Roachmill. It can be difficult to predict what Google will show to users. It should settle down once Google has crawled the new site properly.
  22. We've removed 'proposed' from the discussion title. We're well past the proposal stage now.
  23. Hello all, as you've no doubt noticed, we're in the process of upgrading Shetlink. There will inevitably be a few bumps along the way and it'll take us a peerie while to rebuild a few features but please bear with us. All feedback, good and bad, is welcomed! New (or fixed!) features Mobile friendly formatting Streamlined code, which should mean pages load faster Facebook / Twitter / Google login - you can use your existing online accounts to log in to Shetlink Private Messaging is back! Forum activity stream - you can see what's new in one place Post reactions - you add a thumbs up, thanks, love etc to posts Tagging members in posts - you can use the '@' symbol to @membername someone in a post More, and better organised, feeds with links to external sites (news, jobs, Njord classifieds, images from photo sharing apps etc) In case anyone is wondering, the feeds are all content that the original publishers have made publicly available for sharing. With some technical jiggery pokery at this end we collate the links and present them to Shetlink visitors - we don't actually store any of the publishers' content on our servers and each of the feeds have no more than 25 of the latest links. We want highlight the excellent content that Shetlanders are producing!
  24. Let's all keep the tone civil folks. And a reminder that large font caps-locked red text is the equivalent of screaming in people's faces. And more of that and there will be less of it.
