Right on mate, stuff the champagners, I'm think'n:
Two zones for sure, one for sheilas & kids in the pad locked front yard, the backyard to be complete with a skip of grog on ice for the blokes.
NB, I'm not knock'n yah, I'm on your side.
I see you made a few blank posts. Are you having trouble using the site? I'm always happy to assist. Please let me know what you're struggling with and I'll be pleased to help.
Jason I am not sure whats happening. The site sometimes not always seems to have a mind of its own. I would write out a Post and I always reread the post several times to make sure it sounds right as I have a problem with communicating. So I am not sure whether it is a site situation or a complete ballsup on my behalf. It has happened again and this time my wife seen what I was tying to put into words actual happen.
I finish the Post after I am happy that it sounds OK. never perfect but I am happy with OK. and I press Post and when I read it onsite it leaves out words that I have had to put in to make it sound right [before I have pressed Post]. Other times it will for no reason send me back to the email that I usually use to open the site. Scary hey!
This is the second time I have written this reply as it just vanished after jumping to other areas on this site. I'm glad Pam was here as I like Wayne suffer from Sever Depression with acute Anxiety.
I really enjoy this site as like everyone else am a keen DIY'er and I get some fantastic ideas. So I wont give up reading this site, only stop replying or writing a discussion.
Sorry for the problems you are experiencing with posting. I can understand it must be very frustrating.
We haven't had any other users report similar issues so I suggest it might be something specific to your computer - perhaps due to malware. I will send you some questions via private message to help us investigate for you.
Like you, my posts take a very long time to put together, & proofread before I submit, & for the very same reason that you mentioned.
I work around it by drafting my posts using a word processor, which gives me an "On the Go" spell checker, & a full page to work in, as I struggle writing in text boxes.
Once I've finished the arduous process of getting it to make sense, I “Copy All”, & then paste it in Workshop's reply box.
Even then, it's quite common for me to have to edit my post, after seeing what I've submitted.
I hope this helps mate.
If you ever have difficulties with the site, please don't hesitate to get in touch and the team will be more than happy to assist.
Just make sure you don't use Internet Explorer. When you copy and paste from Word, it adds a bunch of extra markup language. This extra markup causes issues in IE, and thus the page doesn't load beyond the point of where the markup starts.
A huge thank you Jason for the offer of help, but my difficulties apply to any site with text boxes. It's not a specific Workshop site problem, I've had this difficulty for a long time, & simply offered my work around to help John1, & perhaps others.
I'm not at all embarrassed by my (major) depression, & would've volunteered it earlier if the need arose, but I keep it in the background, until I see someone that can learn from how I've learnt to deal with it.
I'm putting it out there, if any Workshoppers are struggling with depression, I'm a very good listener, extremely positive, & it stays between us.
Many thanks for bringing up the complications of pasting a copy of a Word document, via Internet Explorer.
I'm not a MicroSoft devotee, so I wasn't aware of what you disclosed, & delighted that you have potentially helped a much larger audience.
