I did mod one comment by last night, but just give me the heads up if people feel that there are others that need attention….25 June 2017 at 16:49 #5963726 June 2017 at 08:11 #59695Anonymous @
Hey! It’s Thane (dragged the laptop from Mum for a tic). I totally agree that if you ignore them the trolls win. What I don’t like (probably makes me a coward) is that whatever you say they then turn their beady eyes on you! Like a 100 cyberpeople slowly turning to look when Bill opened the window…..And boy do they smash you down.
I suppose -with mum anyway- having the notifications on she can go back and find ‘hey, 25 people actually agreed with me and not the numb nut after all’ but then those constant notification bells become an issue of time.
But yeah, you have to stop ’em in their tracks. And enough people need to find the confidence to do that.
Thank you, Thane.26 June 2017 at 10:36 #59702
To ignore them is the right thing to do, and I should have in the past – shall in the future.
As for Mel Gibson, he’s a toerag of the highest order. He stormed off the stage once when a presenter referred to him as Australian, insisting he was American. He does have duel citizenship. What a moron.

I haven’t posted or followed the forums lately, but apparently there has been a flame war going on. I have read a post by one person who rambled on so that I was totally lost as to the point of their post. As for Mel, while he may be a jerk, he is also a “talented jerk” like far too many in Hellyweird. Ya’ll have a goodern.29 June 2017 at 12:39 #59935Anonymous @
Hi @craig and other mods, some twit’s introduced antibiotic crap from the States on the World & Enough Time thread?
Dislike that because I know how significant that particular medication is!

Hi all, yes it’s true, I thought some of you might be interested in the above research by @bitlab.
Feel free to tell them how bad I am. 🙂9 July 2017 at 20:08 #60491nerys @nerys
I just got a friendly invitation from “Alice” to go visit her page.9 July 2017 at 20:13 #6049210 July 2017 at 13:23 #60511
Do we have a forum on An Adventure in Space and Time?
While slightly hesitant to mention this just before I head off for a week of dodgy internet access in the Inner Hebrides, it might be fun to discuss David Bradley’s dual performance as William Hartnell/The Original Doctor.10 July 2017 at 13:39 #60513
@bluesqueakpip For some strange reason it was difficult to find, but yes we did have a forum for An Adventure in Space and Time.
I’ll look into why it doesn’t show up in the Forums list.10 July 2017 at 13:46 #60515
It would be good to revive the discussion of An Adventure in Time and Space. I was also thinking that as we are coming to the end of Moffat’s time as showrunner it might be fun to watch The Curse of Fatal Death and see how some of the ideas have played through his scripts. I don’t recall if we have discussed it before but could not find a thread for it.

OH and have a lovely in the Inner Hebrides @bluesqueakpip. I am a little envious as the Hebrides, Inner and Outer and Orkney are very high on my “want to visit” list.
Janette10 July 2017 at 16:12 #60533
“a lovely time”, Must be past my bedtime.
Janette10 July 2017 at 21:56 #60538Whisht @whisht
ah fantastic @craig bluesqueakpip and brewski (and everyone I’ve missed).
Curse of.. Adventures in Time and Space and making of stuff.
That’s me set up for the weekend !
Will try and post more then, but as ever am following most of the conversations!10 July 2017 at 23:15 #60540
@whisht I’ve been a bit naughty on the “An Adventure in Space and Time” topic. For a limited time only. Catch it while you can. 🙂13 July 2017 at 04:41 #6058130 September 2017 at 07:37 #62008
Hi all, I thought it was about time I upgraded the site’s software and as it’s reasonably quiet at the moment I did it this morning. There were some minor hiccups and I panicked a little, but I think it’s all working fine now.
If something doesn’t work or looks a bit weird or out of whack, please let me know as soon as possible, either here or by email.
Many thanks.1 October 2017 at 05:01 #620231 October 2017 at 15:01 #620263 October 2017 at 16:50 #62034Hiker @hiker
Nice countdown clock to Christmas.
I love it because it’s more Capaldi.
I hate it because no more Capladi after.5 October 2017 at 10:30 #620438 October 2017 at 02:03 #62057ichabod @ichabod
Yeh. That great big hole burnt right through poor Bill — feels kinda like that, but first, the last Hurrah! Damn.8 October 2017 at 02:34 #620583 November 2017 at 02:28 #62319RorySmith @rorysmith
I decided to visit this forum and shake the dust off. I wanted to see how this site held up to various devices and the ultimate test, the oldest devices.
I am currently typing on a Dell Inspiron 2650. It is almost 15 years old.
I love that this forum is stripped down to the necessities so this isn’t unbearable.25 November 2017 at 14:17 #62478
Hi, Craig. I realise that Doctor Who may be the last thing on your mind right now, but if we are to watch Tenth Planet before Twice Upon A Time, a forum needs to be created either this week or next week. There are now only five Saturdays before Christmas, including today.
Possibly Jim could create one?

I think Wolfweed took the words right out of my mouth.
Really sorry to hear that, and I hope the lawyers manage to get you a good settlement – and that you find something new and interesting very shortly. All the best.26 November 2017 at 15:40 #62494
Strangely enough, on the day I was made redundant last week, the website I do, as just part of my job, was ranked 4th best corporate website in the UK, equal with BP (who probably have a massive team). One of those luscious, movie-moment coincidences.
So at least you know you’re in safe hands here.
And the first episode of The Tenth Planet is now up. It feels good to be back. Thanks for the distraction.27 November 2017 at 01:31 #62500JimTheFish @jimthefishTime Lord
Apologies to all for not being near a computer to save @craig having to do this. Crazy time.
Sorry to hear about the redundancy btw, @craig. That sucks. Must be something going around at the moment (and we all know what it is) cos while you can’t make a freelancer redundant, you can tell them that there’s no more work for them come January. Do hope you manage secure a good payout and that your lawyers and negotiations to their damndest…27 November 2017 at 10:07 #62502
May I add my sentiments about your redundancy, and the hope of a good settlement. what a buzz it must have been to find out that your website ranks 4th. Fan-bloody-tastic!
So at least you know you’re in safe hands here.
As if we didn’t already know this!

Hey @craig – ah damn, sorry to hear about your situation.
I’ve been on both sides of it, and it starts and ends in spreadsheets, but hopefully people are being human throughout.
Thanks for putting up the Tenth Planet – hope this place is a fun distraction for you, as its giving a great distraction and communal place for lots of people.28 November 2017 at 02:30 #62510
@craig I have been thinking of you and concerned about what was going on as you have not been posting for a while. So sorry to hear. I hope things turn out well and new opportunities arise.
Janette30 November 2017 at 02:53 #62531winston @winston
@craig I always knew we were in good hands and thank you so much for Tenth Planet. You are obviously excellent at what you do and 4th place shows it.30 November 2017 at 05:09 #62532
Hear , hear.

Interestingly, I woke up this morning to find we had a new member, with a Russian email address but a British name. They posted some abusive messages about the new, female Doctor.
I’ve spammed them. But looks like the Russians are coming for the BBC now. Wow.
And even more wow – we’re on Putin’s radar. How exciting. 🙂
Looks like my Christmas day may be an interesting one!
Please do notify me of any weird posts from new members. Many thanks in advance.21 December 2017 at 08:04 #62665ichabod @ichabod
@craig OOOoooohhh, wow! We’re on the map of international Trollery, are we? What an honor! Prepare to repel boarders . . .21 December 2017 at 10:34 #62667
All ready and armed Sir! if the Russia
If the russians get hold of the BBC, heaven help us.

I love Russian Trolls. I’ve always been fascinated by the way they fit so neatly inside each other.
Oh wait… My mistake. That’s Russian Dolls22 December 2017 at 00:25 #6267322 December 2017 at 10:06 #62674
I don’t know if this is the right thread to say this? Never mind, I’ll say it anyway.
MAY YOU ALL HAVE A VERY MERRY, HAPPY CHRISTMAS.
MAY YOUR DAY BE FILLED WITH GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD FOOD, GOOD DRINK.
MAY 2018, BRING YOU GOOD HEALTH AND SUCCESS IN ALL YOU DO – BUT IF NOT,
THE STRENGTH TO SIMPLY TRY AGAIN.
ABOVE ALL, BE KIND.
