Markus, who originally setup and ran this forum "" has reluctantly decided that circumstances have changed for him and he can no longer give the time and effort to the forum that it requires.

You will all have read my posts along with several others who are the "prolific" posters. Markus originally approached the top 5 poster and asked them if they would consider becoming Administrators of the forum - You can see who they are by clicking on the red "Administrators" word at the bottom of each page.

As Markus can no longer give the time to the forum, I have agreed following consultation with the other administrators to take over the forum. Hopefully, you the members will not see any change in the way things are done - new members will still have to apply and be "activated" by a human as a method of reducing the spam posts. you can still report posts to Admin's for action if required. The forum is still FREE, but any donations are welcome. I am in the process of setting up a specific PAYPAY account to accept those donations.

I will put another post up when that is done.

Hi Guys,

I have transferred the donations account to the new account for website related costs. The website is YOUR website and the word Ownership is related to the ownership of the domain name where a person must be stated.

I hope for transparency in use of funds and administration. so get involved and give a John a hand the administration/running of

Regards and good luck,
