    Can any of the older members rmember the bits and bobs bags the sparkies used to carry

    Napit offers EIS scheme to stroma members for £100+VAT

    Grab a bargain. With the legislation for landlords coming out (July) it would pay to snap up this offer of £100 plus VAT (hang on thought we were out of the VAT zone, I digress) You save a lot as the normal fee is £455 plus VAT. You get to be listed on the NAPIT site so better exposure for...

    https://www.electriciansforums.net/threads/forum-tags-were-done-now-i-promise.179061/ I said I was done here. Seems I wasn't. I'm not sure of the reasoning behind so many members not getting in the Electricians Arms. But the tag was really meant for Electricians. So I wanted them to go to...

    Ads from sponsors, even for subscribed members?

    I was under the impression that as subscribed members, we avoided all the advertising bumph? Just nptice now that I'm getting sponsor banners between posts on threads? Is it intentional? Was it communicated and I've missed or or has Dan been messing again? 😝

    Ways to encourage members to add videos to our media area....?

    How can we encourage members to add media to our media area? I'm wondering if you guys can come up with some suggestions. Possible ones. So some tools we have are perhaps the tags system (reward users with a tag?), the reactions system (kinda trying to use that with the new winner reaction)...

    120 members deleted their accounts on there since we had the option

    120 accounts deleted since having the option. That's not bad. No bans I don't think. Once was extended for life. Can't say who. And 8000 I removed for not logging in for 2 years. So our new figures is under 15,000. We had 3000 login over 30 days. That's not bad. 20% of users.

    Idiotic Schemes and members

    Went to a job the other day and found that an NICEIC approved domestic installer employed by a conservatory company had installed a small CU and run a 4mm 3 Core SWA to run some sockets and lighting in the conservatory. On closer inspection he’d split the tails with Henley block to feed to new...

    New Members Posts..............

    To the powers that be: Is there a way of changing the current way new members post? At present they have to wait for the post to be reviewed before it gets posted. I'm all happy with that. What I don't like is, when the post is reviewed and accepted it get slotted in when the OP posted it...

    Just a case of curiosity really, but I have noticed a lot of regular members that use the forum on a daily basis leave their Avatars blank ( No Picture ) and was curious why so thought I would create a little poll. I personally recognise a lot of members by their Avatar without the need to look...
