The New Automated Home forums are now on-line! - Our new improved forums are now up and running on the excellent vBulletin system providing enhanced performance as well as many new features. Here's a top ten of some of the highlights...

1. RSS Feeds - Feeds are now available for each individual forum as
well as a separate 'General' feed of the last posts across all
forums (click on the RSS symbol in your browser).

2. Email subscriptions - You can now subscribe to an individual
thread to be notified of a new post, even if you haven't posted in
that thread yourself. You can also subscribe to an entire forum to be
notified when any posts are made to it.

3. Better Resizing - The new Forums will resize down to a much narrow
width than before. It's readable in 800x600 and you can even view it
on mobile devices and smart phones...

4. Improved search - The new search box is much more powerful and
includes an 'Advanced Search' form for even more options.

5. Different viewing modes - You can choose to watch the forums in
standard Linear mode or switch to Threaded or Hybrid views.

6. Collapsible forum sections - you can collapse the sections you
aren't interested in and just see the forums you want.

7. Printable versions - Proper printable versions of threads are now
available complete with long URLs for your reference.

8. Personalisation - New Signatures and Avatars options are
available.

9. Sharing a post - You can now easily link to an individual posts.
Each post has a number in the top left (eg - '#13'), just click
on this and cut and paste the URL to share that exact message with
someone else.

10. Tinned Meat - Improved handling and moderation of new members
should see a big reduction on unwanted posts offering sites with naked
ladies and various pills

The forums are reachable from the link in the navigation box top left
