    Thank you so much, Mr. spot, for such a prompt reply. Although you weren't able to give much info. at least you were able to give me something. I looked at the 'members list' on FG and ZAP is still incliuded and is in green. As far as I am aware the member's name reverts back to black if they do not pay another subscription, so this confuses me with regard to ZAP as her name is still in green.

    Maybe she signed a Direct Debit several years ago, so that subscriptions still carried on and perhaps relatives hadn't yet realised this to cancel the DD. Just a thought and I hope that Mary Hyde (ZAP) is. in fact, still alive. The last I heard was that she was touring round the USA and looking up various relatives and I think that was 2017/ 18. She seemed quite fit at that time so I keep my fingers crossed.

    Thanks, once more for your quick reply !

    There are several reasons for a bold green name, the details I gave are accurate.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    There may be a half-hour downtime before May, I need a working site copy downloading.

    May starts on Friday, for those in lockdown who haven't kept up.

    Today is Wednesday.

    Now hear this.

    Before the end of May it is possible that ForumGarden will move from the current vBulletin environment to a clean install of phpBB on a new server. This will involve a degree of disruption.

    The look of the site will be different but it will still say ForumGarden in big green letters at the top left of each page. Probably.

    All the existing users will be brought over to the new system. I do not think we can take the passwords with us. I will send out one email during the transfer, issuing a temporary password to be changed when you next log in. By all means put your old one back, or take the opportunity to re-think your current password practice and bring it into the 21st century. I can advise anyone who has no idea what a password ought to look in these tumultuous times.

    The navigation of the site will be different. There will still be underlying truths like posts, threads, forum areas, but the buttons to go from one place to another might be unsettling initially. This is unavoidable.

    All of the forum areas and all the threads and all the posts and attachments from the current site will be moved into the new system.

    I will try to keep the gallery albums and photos and the PMs. I don't yet know how to do that bit, but moving to the new system is essential. It is possible that the gallery will only be re-installed some time after the move.

    The smileys will re-appear immediately.

    When we get there, I will happily accept requests for this or that or the other to be made more like it ought to be. Things like bold green usernames for example. More themes to change the colours of the borders. Flashing lights. Whistley noises when you press the buttons. A loud bong when a PM arrives. Form an orderly queue.

    Write down my email address now and paste the bit of paper on a spare surface. If the site disappears or you can't get back on, email me and I'll keep you informed.
