Thank you Graham. You and your fellow site administrators have done a very good job in providing this unique forum dedicated to the GreaterWestern Rail franchise. I have learnt a lot from the forum over the past few years of the peculiarities  of the rail system that help to explain why certain things run in the way the do and I suspect that many rail staff (TOC & NR) may have appreciated some of the work but perhaps not welcomed the throwing of light onto some of the absurdities. Long may you thrive.

I've given up and registered as a new user but if it's possible to get my original 'noddingdonkey' back that'd be great!

I'm sorry you've had such a problem.   I'll resolve this so that you can use the old account later this evening.

I have sent you an email to the new address giving you a password ...

I previously reset at 22:17 on 14th June and emailed you; not sure why that failed.

I have closed this second account too - we're pretty strict on multiple identities because of past problems

Thanks, Chris ... doing this from an intermittent connection and a series of train changes.  I'm surprised there was only one mistake!

William Huskisson MP was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

With the server change last June, there was a major change in the underlying operating system, program language and database versions (and by "major" I mean huge).  And a couple non-critical but non-wanted effects crept in.

Thanks to a suggestion from bobm, I've been able to improve an issue with avatars, which have been cut down to postage stamp size when uploaded recently.    Fresh uploads will now resize to a maximum of 153 x 153 pixels, rather than the 65 x 65 that has been used for the past 9 months or so. There remains an issue with images hosted on your own server, which may display distorted if they're not of the correct size / aspect ratio.

It seems that the old server was just letting anything through due to the lack of image resizing software in the background; the new server has that software so a latent configuration error was exposed when we upgraded.

Yay. Thanks grahame and bobm for whatever was done to give us back larger avatars. I've celebrated by bringing back IKB.
