The new forum now does not display direct linking of images from MSN related web-site, which has been common practice of late.
If you wish to display an image, either attach the image to the post or simply link to where the image is displayed instead of the image itself.

I have noticed lately in reporting spam on this website is bit slow in being dealt with or sometimes overlooked.
This tends to let spammers know that the site is bit relaxed & tends to promote other spammers to frequent the site which spoils a lot of posts.
When a spam report is sent do all...

Hi, I am new, and a little bit confused how this forum works. When I am logged in, and parked at the Home page of this forum, where do I go to post a question? I just can't see where to do it. If I go to the FAQ for help on how to post a question, it only talks about fonts and format, not actually...

As most of you will have noticed, we recently upgraded our forum software and things are very different in the new FAF!
A few things are missing, a few things are new, but overall we should have a smoother operating site without the little bugs that annoyed us all so much before.
Benn having this happening quite a lot recently, but it seems on odd occasions that i make a post it timestamps it wrong and then doesn't say that the post is the most recent on the forum list. sometimes its a few minutes off but others its hours or even days wrong.
Also when this happens the...

hi guys is there a section here where i can get info on how to prepair my car for painting and painting it.
I am not being notified of reply's to threads I open or comment in properly if ever it's very rare I do get one but most of the time I do not so it's hard to keep track of things.

i've got internet explorer 8 and it always crashes on the main forum, particularly today on 'Burela "cries foul"' thread. i wonder whats on that thread that causes ie to crash.
i have IE8 and Windows 7, so i'm running at the front of the pack. computer is an intel I7 processor.
heres what happens:
quite regularly as in like every few hours the forums wont load ie: explorer will say "server not found error" whereas mozilla will just return a white blank page with no error message. i have a network with 3 pc's and it wont work from either pc yet other ppl on my msn will...

Hey there admin,
I seem to have a problem with FAF not remembering me when I return. I do tick 'remember me', and I have deleted my FAF cookie from my HDD, yet it still refuses to like me. :(
I'll add that its even if I don't close my browser and revisit.
Any further ideas?

Just wondering if the addition to this site of a section devoted to the Ford Zephyr / Zodiac series could be considered?
I keep been redirected to some fordforums instead of this site over the last three days including 3 times this morning. Any clue as to why this keeps happening.
In NZ at least, I couldn't get the forum for 24 hours from yest morning.
All I got at the www address was what looked like a giant virus (I am no expert) with a picture of a young woman and likes to "Ford" stuff, like Henry Ford, Harrison Ford, etc. Still the case earlier this morning.
For some reason this forum always forgets who I am. Even though I click on "remember me" I have to log on with password every time I visit. But the worst part is it sometimes forgets me half way through a reply or when browsing, then I have to close explorer and try again. Any ideas? Doesn't happen...
G'day. Some problems that I am experiencing are that when I log in, I type my entry into the forums (sometimes lengthy) and by the time I am finished and ready to post, I am automatically logged out (sometimes it's 10 or 15 minutes after logging in). It doesn't matter which computer I use (Home or...

I have no objections as to what anyone posts, provided its within all the regulations of what FAF say, but please DO NOT try and weasel your way out out something you have said/written/posted. Say EXACTLY what you mean. ;)
Since FAF is all based around you guys I thought I'd throw open the door for discussion on ideas and ways of improving your experience on the forums.
We want suggestions for new rooms, suggestions for competitions and activities, any suggestions at all.
If you've got anything to add, please...
