The first town plan. An idea that had legs.

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.

In answer to a comment on the forum / no reason for stopping users who wish to 'like' their own posts. Some may think it's an odd thing to do - but I can imagine liking one of my own posts if (for example) one of the moderators has gone in, sorted my spelling out again, and commented to the effect in the post.

Personally I think there should be an 'unliked' button for some of the posts we get..... Roll Eyes

We could add an "interesting but I disagree" button, an "I acknowledge your post and the effort put not it and thank you for it but have nothing to add" button, and a "this is too technical for me to understand" button.  I would then, no doubt, be asked to add an "I can't read this on my phone because the screen is too cluttered with buttons" button ...

The "recent likes" on the top of this forum - for members logged in - has lead to a page of topics that have generated such feedback for a while now.

Initially to see what members think of the idea, I have added an extra graphic on the top of our pages which is reporting the  top six stories - making the front page of the forum (and the bit 'above the fold') a one-stop shop for a service amendment map and hot news.   I will see what feedback I get as to whether this becomes permanent; if it's useful, I could update it so that clicking on a story would jump to it ... but that's a bit more work from where I started.

Hi Grahame, I noticed that earlier and thought it a good idea.  Would be nice if you could click on the topic line and it takes you to your latest unread post in the topic (other forums do that; WNXX an example).  But please don't struggle with something that might be difficult to achieve.  I enjoy the forum as it is now, so any additions you can make are a bonus Cheesy

Linking direct to the thread (and to the liked article in it) should be possible - "your latest unread" would be a bit harder.

OK ... let's see how that looks.   Installed / under test.    Members may like to note that "liking" a message will promote its thread.

Hi Grahame.  Well done.  That works really well if you just want to dive in quickly and see whats currently the 'hot' topics!

Doesn't render brilliantly on my Android phone. Font is larger than other boxes either side. Leaves a lot of dead space.
