    use the do not disturb function on the phone and you can select what will and won't beep at selected hours, mine will only give notifications between 7am and 10pm

    Tapatalk here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.quoord.tapatalkpro.activity&hl=en is a great app for using forums, I use the paid version but even the free version will do a good job

    Thanks .. hadn't checked Notifications on my phone. Nice one. No more being woken up in the middle of the night.

    I'll look into Tapatalk a little more .. and get some feedback.

    Cheers for the Heads-up

    Just saw the latest GearBest Ad in the Forum

    Do these Companies actually pay for giant ads like this one .. or do they get to Spam the forum for free?

    Are 'GearBest' forum Sponsors or something?

    Just curious??

    they spam for free, there are no forum sponsors, they are allowed to promote their store but only in the appropriate section (China resellers)

    Every retailer is allowed 1 thread. No sponsors. Some post more than others.

    I've figured out what this Forum needs - A live Chat Column down the Right Side of the page so that anyone can chime into the conversation or have several going on at the same time.

    It's a winner - Yeah?

    How about a Trial?

    Who agrees?

    That's 1,5,100, 500, 2,000, 50,000 .... Unanimous! ;D

    that can work on a huge forum (500,000 plus members), on smaller forums it's the death of the place, I've seen it happen, it totally stifles public discussion and you lose the searchable nature of posts which then screws with Google indexing

    If there is a chat feature implemented I do not want it integrated into the forums pages. Those are distracting at best and usually so far off topic that you have to check that you are where you thought you were at online :rolleyes: I prefer the long deep thought time which forums give as that allows you to consider everything where most chatrooms are moving too fast for anything but shallow conversation. And I type slowly with lots of mistakes to correct before posting :p Heresc whayt youd see fom me ins a charttoom :eek:

    Forums may be old-tech but they are still the best way to gather info and share thoughts from everyone world-wide :D
