Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It would appear I'm blocked from this official though maybe not official account as well. If it is being used in the manner you suggest, it doesn't quite fit in with the new normal the mods have expressed. I'm also blocked. I've never understood the point of blocking people on Twitter, unless they ...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It has been noted that @SE23lifeChris was attempting to trash some poor devil's reputation on Twitter by imputing that as a ne'er-do-well they should be ignored. I don't know about that, but I do see that account - which is an 'official' SE23Life account - retweeting political content from CBs pers...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Several months on and locals may like to know that the lake has been successfully reopened. There are regular swimmers - I even had a go myself - as well as paddle boarding and canoeing. While children under 8 are currently not allowed to use the lake, I've seen older children properly supervised en...

Re: Bell Green Proposals

It says the long term goal is to replace the single storey retail units with multiple level mixed retail and housing units, so presumably Sainsbury’s could stay. Looking at the currently Sainsbury’s building, I can seen it could well need levelled and rebuilt in the medium term. It’s been there a ve...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

A technical admin should never make decisions on what is appropriate content, bar obvious spam. Nor assume that issues that were deemed contentious some months ago are still under embargo. A technical admin should, at the most, temporarily hide a post and seek clarification from a moderator about wh...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

The infrastructure for the wet woodland is all there - the outflow from the lake was installed some time ago. So the money has been spent already. I don’t see how there would be any safety issues with the wet woodland - it’s very shallow. It was always going to be formed after the lake was filled a...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

I asked before but you didn’t answer: why do you say the wetlands are not going ahead? Is this official? It was my understanding that would be the last part of the project to be carried out. As you’ll have noticed, there are still some works going on around the park.

Re: Posting images from my Mac

Thanks, Dick. I’ll use an external host for now. Would be interesting to know if this site no longer supports the old upload method, or whether my Mac isn’t giving me a usable pathway.

Posting images from my Mac

It's a while since I've need to add an image to a post here and my normal method no longer works (inserting the file pathway between the img BB codes). When I copy the pathway from Finder on my Mac, the pathway doesn't work here to upload the image. Have tried via 'right-click-copy pathway' and also...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

At the lake this morning: new fixed bouys (my guess is they are weighted) and safety signage. It would be reasonable to say these measures should have been in place before the lake opened. I absolutely agree parents must be responsible for their children's safety but you have to work with human natu...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

There's a lot of 'noise' on this thread - facts and theories jostling for attention. If you strip all that out, what are we left with? This: CB says he reported Nicola to the police for harassment. Nicola goes to the police several times to identify herself and be associated with that report. Each t...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

In my view, JGD's screed about narcissism adds nothing to this discussion. Indeed, I don't think one should speculate about named individuals' possible psychopathology on this sort of forum. I thought society was supposed to be having an honest conversation about mental health so that we can destig...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

To go back to sockpuppeting briefly - I've noticed a non-mod on the other forum making reference to editing titles of threads. Assuming that this isn't a standard ability, would I be right in thinking that's a CB sockpuppet? Edit: I idly googled the user name and found a matching Twitter profile th...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Just returned from the park. It was so busy we had to queue for the car park for ten minutes. There were no special events on. Just people using the park.

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

I was also in the park yesterday. I’d say there were more people than usual who were not dog walkers - dog walkers bring the vast majority of users up until now. Was it busy? No? Was it pissing with rain? Yes.

Re: advice about wasp nest

Yes, get expert advice. If they are wasps, they can be removed (which would be safest). If they are ground bees, they need to be protected.

Which site does he want you to remove data and clear out troublemakers from? I remember you passing on this site to the new admin several years ago.

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

I also feel somewhat sorry for TPT Coaching, who were contracted to run the swimming and water sports. They are a very small local company and seemed overwhelmed by the task of running the bookings - their website was a homemade GoDaddy site that was a real shambles. And now it appears to be broken ...
