Just an update on the forum style at Puntersmate.
We have reverted to a similar style to the old board, black and orange.
But I'm aware that it's not to everyones taste. Some of the lads liked the brighter one we were using when we updated.

However this will all change sometime tonight
Once you are logged in, go to the
user control panel / board preferences / My board style
you then have three style choices
Black / prosilver / silver_red
Pick one and submit

So every member can use whatever style they fancy

As we can see with this new forum, and the big box with a question mark at the side of each post
there are lots of members without avatars.
Anyone who wants one but is unsure how to do it, just drop me a line and we'll sort it out.

Evening all
A bunch of new links have appeared on the Navigation bar at the top of the forum
Bingo/Free Bets/Poker/Casino

Probably the only one that may interest you is the opening offers from Bookies ( Free Bets )

The main reason they are there is because this is a gambling site, and all the bots, google etc will pick them up, and when people search for those terms, somewhere in the results will be puntersmate.

They are also visible to guests, so if any guests click on them and register with some far flung Bingo site, then Puntersmate get a few pence, which in turn helps to keep us turning over.

Hello Col, I have noticed that when you highlight a word to put in Bold it ends up putting the whole post in bold instead. Have you or anyone else noticed this?? {:(

I think what you are seeing, and anybody can correct me if you think different, is when you post and highlight / bold it
After it has been read by you, it is no longer as bold as when you posted it.

However it will be set by user, so the next user to read it, it will be bold.

Does anyone else agree with that, or am I talking rubbish.

I'm just presuming that mate.
I can't find anything in the software code that tells me.

I'm still trying to find out mate, it seems a very strange move to do that.
I'd much rather the text stayed bold.

Thought I was losing my marbles the number of times I'd been sure I'd used it! Going to try various words with the relevant formatting they describe to see if affects other styles, so bold is in bold etc. heres italics followed by a touch of underline.

Will any have more longevity than bold? :)

It's a Board style issue lads.
Just tried it with prosilver and it's working fine.

Still looking into it

I think you can see a slight difference there.

Maybe better to change the font colour if you want to make something more prominent!

Or I suppose you could large it up!

Right lads
After some discussion with the Style author, it seems we would struggle to make it any bolder because it's on a black background.
There was already a very small bold outline there, but I've also changed the colour of the bold slightly to make it stand out a bit.

How does it look now

It makes no difference at all in the prosilver style :(

Ok lads
The majority of our users are using the black and orange style, so I think it's fair to go ahead and use the above.
And it's usually just your betting selection, team / horse etc

Any text bolded will now look like this

Unless of course you are reading on one of the other styles.
