    I expect there are lots of things happening under the bonnet (hood) that we can't see.

    this forum only lets you post once every 30 hours

    Can we get rid of that for "accepted" users - say after 50 posts or so? I understand the need to stop spam etc, but when flipping through the forums in the morning, and it has stopped me posting 3 times, and I have to stop, count down the 30 seconds, re-post, miss the timing, repost. Means it takes way too long to read and reply etc.

    Lol, yes, I'll lower it.

    Indeed, some of which I am still getting used to too.

    Agreed.

    This is around somewhere, I'll locate it and tell you.

    That'll change once I can get the new style up!

    I agree it should, I'll see if there is a secret button I haven't enabled.

    I don't think the search facility is as good as the old site.

    Believe it or not I can't find the infamous leggings thread by putting leggings in the quick search or by using the advanced either. Perhaps it's just me.

    By the way I asked a lad to remove his leggings at a 7s tournament yesterday - he did.

    There is a little blue button that takes you to the first new post.

    No national flags either.

    Will England referees be ditching the Cross of St George in favour of a plain black flag!!

    I have rebuilt the search function, should be better now.
