    The ethos of this forum must be one of mutual respect for everyone who uses it. You may argue and debate with anyone but when the argument becomes heated or abuse begins to creep in, then you will have crossed the line. If you don’t step back from it then you will likely be moderated.

    Respect for everyone is paramount. If we see evidence or have good reason to believe that you are looking to get a rise or to deliberately force a reaction from any other users (Trolling) then we will stop you.

    If you are here to chat, respectfully debate issues or ask genuine questions of the thousands of users who come here then you are welcome to stay and we have no doubts you will add positively to our huge community.

    There are literally thousands of new posts every day and we simply can’t read everyone of them, or even a small fraction, so we ask that if you spot anything you think we should be aware of then please use the REPORT function at the bottom of every post to make us aware of it. Please don’t assume that if it is there that we have allowed it to stay – we just haven’t seen it yet and we need your help.

    This forum is remarkable in its scope of topics, experience of its users and sheer numbers of regular visitors – we hope you all enjoy it.

    Play nice 🙂

    On behalf of everyone at Singletrack

    We have implemented a new feature which is to allow private messaging from:
    – Only people you specify
    – Only friends
    – Everyone
    – Except certain people

    This can be accessed from Profile > Settings > Message Privacy.

    If you receive a message from someone you don’t want messages from, you can block them from sending messages to you straight from inside the message itself using the “Stop receiving messages from this user” button.

    We now have a choice of two text editors. There’s the “fancy” editor which has been in use since the forum upgrade, or a new basic text editor for folk who have been having issues with the fancy one. You can toggle between them at will using the Settings option under your Account link in the menu bar at the top of the page.

    This may be changed to somewhere more intuitive later, but that’s a bigger chunk of work than it looks.

    We’ve had a fairly major site upgrade.

    There’s a bunch of minor changes and tweaks, but the biggest change from a user perspective is to how the site’s front page works. You can now see content from all the channels and customise this to your tastes.

    Mark’s written an overview / guide to how this works. This can be found here:

    After a couple of false starts, the site has received an upgrade today. The bulk of this is behind-the-scenes stuff like improving the tools we have for moderation, so most folk won’t see much difference in the forums.

    However, one big change is that you should now have the ability to directly report dodgy / spam listings within the Classifieds for moderation rather than relying on emails. This is available from the ‘three-dots’ drop-down menu for each post on the Classifieds index page.

    We’ve also now got a really clever new anti-spam measure installed into the Classifieds, though this is currently disabled until STW is happy that the initial changes have bedded in OK. Once this is enabled, if all goes according to plan we should hopefully see a dramatic reduction in Classifieds spam.

    The whizzy new anti-spam engine in the Classifieds has now been in place for a little while. This has reduced the spam we’re seeing there to, well, zero, but we’ve had a (very small) number of false positives where genuine listings have been incorrectly marked as spam. The moderators don’t get automatic notification of this – yet, a new module is being developed to do this – so if it happens to you please drop an email to the moderator@ address to bring it to our attention. Don’t forget to include your username and ad details, it’ll save us a lot of time.
