    Personal Details

    Suggestions About Re-Organisation: Move & Merge Requests

    While we have the user moderators in place, we think it would be good to sort out the board by merging redundant threads and moving misplaced ones. Since we are fully occupied processing new threads which wind up in the wrong forum, and holding down jobs and family life, some help in...
