it's another "make" of forum - I've used it on several sites, it's bombproof, and really simple to do things like this - it's the one I recommend Andy migrates this one onto, come upgrade time! (there are programmes available that can do the "translation" between the two!) :wink:

Can there be kids joining with other members? - i'm thinking particularly about my friend's son. my friend isn't a member, but his son would love to show off his sunflowers and tomatoes when he grows them, so could he join via me? I'd moderate his posting and stuff - as in, i would make sure he posted when i was about so i could check what he was writing.

Ooops! Sorry - didn't mean to exclude - I just meant to suggest kids associated with appropriate responsible adults who are already members.
My son is really looking forward to this!
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!

I think friends could join but they will have to be recomended by an adult.

Can we have a recap and see how many people are willing to moderate this?

This still going ahead?

I think we have about three mods now. Would be good to get an ausie one too as that makes it more of a 24 hour moderation.
