Replying To Galway9801:  "Well if they allow all posts they're not really regulated.
I'm sure there's someone running it but from looking at it briefly it wouldn't be for me anyway."
They allow all posts before hand and take down posts as necessary as in if they break rules

They have rules and posts that breach the rules are removed. they very much are regulated.

Replying To Galway9801:  "I'm not on too many forums so I'm not sure if it's normal but I find the timekeeping here leaves a queer amount to be desired.
Some posts are put up immediately, others could take two hours, 8/9 hours if you post at nightime, I wonder if there's any way admin could let us know when we post how long it will be before it's displayed?
It's just very annoying when you're debating not knowing if /when your reply will be published."
I'm sure the moderator has a life outside this forum!

Of course but if so many other websites can do it then why cant this site?

change the site and you attract more ads, more users means more people viewing the site meaning more clicks meaning more ad revenue.
if other sites with smaller number of daily users can do it this site can.

Not sure if its by design or if its a flaw but scrolling back to the first page on some topics doesn't seem to be an option. There's one current topic has gone to over 40 pages and I can only go back as far as P20. I've tried editing the url to reflect the desired page number but that doesn't do the trick.
Granted, the problem may well lie somewhere between the chair and the keyboard but maybe someone out there knows the workaround?

fyi, it looks like changing the page number field in the url will actually load the page you want, it just won't be reflected in the page number breadcrumb on the page itself. If you look at the actual posts on the page when it loads, you'll see they're different.

it shouldnt have to be that way. it should be on the main forum through links. you should also be able to alter how many posts you see per page...
