Well, from 6 miles south of the border ADVScotland is looking good to me :)

I've only dipped a digital toe into ABR once and didn't like the interface or the banter. I don't like the print magazine either for the same reason, plus the normal 'you must wear this, watch this, rides this, buy this' nonsense. The same old, same old. I'm not that taken with BigTrailie (aka xrv.org Mk2). As I'm not on that often it does seem a cliquey even though I know many of the folk. They also had a bit of an issue between personalities there I understand. I still visit xrv.org occasionally (though less and less) but spend most of my time here (because my riding is firmly focussed in Scotland) or on ADVrider (for the wider international perspective).

My only gripe (and that's way too strong a word) is that I view the forum most often on my iPad and the forum software or set-up has the strange vice of cropping the width of pictures rather than resizing them to fit which other forums do. You can always scroll across to get the other bit of the picture but it'd be nice to see the whole thing in one sitting. Not sure if anyone else has this 'problem' and as I said, it's a very minor issue. You're doing a great job.

Cheers for the feedback Jim.
The picture issue with the forum software is just that an issue,.
Software is really desktop computer optimal ,  looking at various mobile solutions and may do this some time in the future.

I do not go to any other forums now to post , just have not the time anymore.

Cheers
Craig

Hi Craig, forum is great👍
The only thing being is that the time displayed on the forum seems to be wrong. Right now the time on the forum is displaying 07:56 Pm to me that's the morning it should say 19:56 or 7:56pm

Can it be changed?

Cheers Nathan

It's not really a big problem Craig. The forum's great as it is and I appreciate the time and energy that you must've put in to set the thing up in the first place.

HI Nathan

 Agreed somethings not right there ...

Think I changed the format to 24 hour clock  . see if it works as it should ..

(The admin control is very complex and its been a long day)
