Recently I tried to look at the 'above thread, but only found a message saying I had 'insufficient privileges' to post on that thread. Why is that, do we now have some threads for elite people only? Last night I was able to post about my visit to Burnley Bank Hall in 1993. Was someone offended by my description of Leighton James?
I should add that not only can I not post on that thread I can't view it either, which was what I intended to do tonight.

I've just read your post re Burnley Bank Hall and the thread was there. What you on.
You can't post on it anymore I assume because El Presidente closes it each night and introduces the next date.

I get that message as well, but if you just then click on ‘March 20th’ that opens up the thread as normal.

Yes each days thread is closed when a new one is opened to stop it being 'bumped'. Usually this will be late evening.
The message you see tells you that you can't post new threads, again so that we can keep the section in date order

Cheers... Steve

Thanks for deciding to close the Retro's thread every day, some of us don't have the time to put our matches on each day, so i wont bother at all with the Retro Thread.

Fair enough. Hope it's a good read for you anyway.

It's the only way to keep the threads in date order as posting in a thread bumps it to the top and just creates a random list of dates which could stretch over several months. That wouldn't really be desirable but I do get your point and apologies to those that miss out.

Yet it's okay for regular posters to the "traditional " WDYG to "catch up" on posts many months after the event - you know who they are - which leave that particular string of threads all jumbled and out of sync? Some consistency would be nice; just saying.....

Why not leave each thread open for a week?

They wouldn't get too much out of order that way and it would give folks a chance to catch up.

Shame to miss out on interesting tales of Hopping Daring Do.

I think I have worked out how to stop new posts bumping a thread.

So all threads are open.

Now the question is, when we have reached 365 ordered threads, can we bump the first one to the top and allow people to post again?

Steve, with your new found tech expertise and before you are headhunted by Apple or Chelsea.

Would you be able to put into chronological order the WDYG from the original forum please?
Or should I just do one......
