Just to let you know I'm working on the site re-design now. It's looking tasty. I've incorporated this Message Board into the main site (www.tynesiders.com). It'll take a little getting used to but it'll be worth it.
There will be an events calendar that I'm hoping everyone will update themselves.
I've had a belter idea for the links section but I'm not revealing that until I've worked out how to do it properly
Janet, if you send me the Admin login for the Message Board (Invision) then I'll look into setting up a shoutbox like the one on scooterboy world. I'd love to get rid of the adverts on here like.
Regarding the website itself, we don't need an upgrade at the moment. The hosts don't provide any more functionality that I need and I can get round most things anyway.
