Hello, and welcome to the new Big Readers site - well done for finding us!  For any newcomers, we are the remnant of a group that began on a BBC messageboard, moved to MSN when the Beeb closed us down, and have now been forced to migrate again - let's hope this site can remain intact for a while!  We are here to share our love of reading - and are determined to keep this board focused on books - general chat needs to be kept to a minimum (but a bit of off-topic banter never hurt anyone!).

Those of us used to using the MSN discussion site will notice a few differences - mostly for the better: we can edit our own posts after we've posted, there is a search facility (hurray!), and the administrators can move messages and threads around if need be, though only to a certain extent - but there is generally much more freedom and flexibility, which is great.

The format is a bit different - only administrators can set up the main categories, unfortunately, but if there is anything you want us to include, do just say, and we will do it asap (unless we have very good reasons for not wanting to!).  But generally, if you reply to an existing thread, we can then move things around and, if it seems more appropriate, start a new, separate thread.  (Hope that makes sense!)

Won't say much more for now - people don't read long messages, I am sure - but I hope you enjoy the new site, and if you have any navigational or other problems, just shout.  I am still finding my way around too, but after initial confusion am now finding it fairly easy!

Yes, I hope everyone will soon feel at home. Our masthead-logo-type thing is magnificent. Whose brainwave was that?

Hello!

Well done Evie and Mike!  This is great!

I've used this style of board before on a different forum and it is easy once you get used to it.  

Thanks for all your hard work you two.    Razz

Miranda, it was you, on the other board, who put me onto phpBB/MyFastForum as an option, so you should take some of the credit too!  It does seem all seem very accommodating, I am sure it will work better than either of the sites we have previously occupied.

A Big Thank You

Well I'm glad everyone likes it!


Oh you can also add more emoticons if you want to.   I don't know how but I can find out from someone who does....
