To remove the Poppy and introduce the Christmas banner ?
Traditionally, Christmas decorations were put up on Christmas Eve after dusk, but some people now seem to start putting them up from mid-November onwards! Personally, I think around 2 weeks before Xmas day is about right, any sooner and they'll need dusting before Xmas arrives, much later and it will probably seem like no sooner have you put them up it'll be time to take them down again! So yes, remove the poppy but hold on until the weekend before putting the holly and tinsel up.
So who is on banning duty on the 25th, is it @Cobra or @TheBigYin?
Hater of war heros. Blasphemer. Burn him!
Not at all I have respect for our War Heros
Just a joke
It has been mentioned in the staff room, I think @Marcel *may* have forgotten.
I got the short straw this year ...... So behave!
Don't worry, I'm keen to keep roast badger off the menu this Christmas!
Sorry ladies and gents and hero-haters! ( JUST KIDDING!)
Been curraaazy busy this week so not had time.
Done it now, but if there's anything I missed just let me know in here
Generally a good idea to post the smilie at the same time as the joke is made, rather than afterwards. Toggers are a funny bunch, and sometimes don't react at all well to innocent things.
I got it
I think the 'burn him!' pretty much gave it away.
As part of the commercialmasization, the "Author" banners across the thread starters' names have vanished.
Yup, I spotted that disappearance of what I thought was a useful 'feature'..........bring back the author banner and it it back now...!!!
We'll see about that !
I now scroll to see who started a thread, this determines if I post or not.
A sprout powered hamster? Now there's a frightening thought!
Bullet-proof Santa. Cool.
The threadstarter ribbon takes Christmas off
So does the Bah Humbug theme.
Working here for me!
Sorry, me getting confuzzled! I was meaning that the Bah Humbug theme took christmas off the forum (well, the banner anyway!) and have just twigged that you mean that the Author banner gets a few weeks of holiday (although it still has to do its duty in the BH theme.)
Got a few of those Fairbairn Sykes, nice knives.
Aaaaaahhh, now I get you!
Few crossed wires there!
Plenty in my brane!!!
BTW, I don't seem to be able to shrink the classifieds area down - I usually use the little - at the right end of the bar but they're missing. Only do it to deliver myself from rather than unto temptation.
Its there for me Nod and it works.
On the Bah Humbug theme?
Its the only one that doesn't have it, it would seem Bah! Humbug!
I am just about managing to not spend any money in there - I'll wait for the January sales!
I guess you missed the Black Friday bargains on here then?
They really were bargains!
I'm currently happy with what kit I have so GAS is in remission. I think.
