  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!

  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).

  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?
    April 07, 2018, 09:34:27 PM
  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • But Alia most of us are still confused about the Force India situation.  ::)

    Seems to me Szafnauer is quite pleased with the team being put into administration and looks like he's come out smelling of roses after it.  :confused:
    My problem is Szafnauer was the main executive in charge of Force India - so how on earth does the man running a company day to day not paying it's bills properly for months, nay years, get to still be smiling and in post?  :DntKnw:  >:(

    Was this all due to Mallya & Roy, the culprits we are expected to identify, or are execs like Szafnauer & Fernley just as guilty of allowing the team to get into such dire money problems and possibly trade whilst insolvent?
    After all they will have known for some considerable time that the figures didn't add up. How come there's no move to have them disqualified as directors??? :crazy:

    We can follow a straightforward voiceover. Maybe we cannot say "ah, that's the full story", because it's possible nobody has the full story yet. But once a simple voiceover has been given, it would be nice for the commentators to go deeper, rather than ask to have the simple voiceover given in even simpler terms (especially in situations like that one, where in practical terms said simpler explanation is impossible).

  • Some good news, a deal has been agreed between Sky and Channel 4 so highlights will remain on C4 next year whilst the British Grand Prix will also be shown live on the channel. 

    Not a perfect situation, but at least there is some genuine, free to air content in the future.

  • I wonder if Ch4 hasnít realized that their numbers between LIVE and highlights arenít all that different.  I have to say this year I have been unable to watch more than a couple of Races live due to family or work conflicts, and yet I have been quite pleased with the highlights show.

    The highlights figures have been hovering at 20-30% of live. However, highlights packages are probably a lot cheaper to obtain than live deals, because it's competing with Sky's demand offering of its live race. It is unlikely that many people would opt for the C4 option, given a choice, unless they agree with me that the Sky version is terrible. This makes it worth taking the lower figures, especially since C4 can slot a highlights show around whatever else they have on their schedules. Note their Sunday evening offerings are weak for most of the year, so as long as F1 highlights cost not much more than the equivalent amount of alternate programming, it's profitable for them to take it.
