My knowledge of things technical is er beginner level. I think a pinned post is a sort of banner which is permanent.

I'm thinking of things like anxiety UK.

Hello Greymar
Thanks for your suggestions. We are putting together a page at the moment with useful resources so will make sure that is linked to from the forums too so people can find it easily. In terms of a messaging facility we have PMs for one on one support, as well as the Gransnet Cafe and a No Corona Zone. And of course there's the brilliant Soops Kitchen.
We are spending a lot of resource at the moment getting the word out to as many people as possible who would benefit from Gransnet, and would love for you to help us to do that. Please tell your friends, family members, share on social media and help others who might need us find us. And we are also spending time moderating the forums, keeping them supportive and engaging. Again, any help you could give us in terms of supporting new or lonely users would be wonderful. Thank you smile

gilly, I think it means the posts at the top of the active list that have a little GN logo beside them.

Don't take my word for it though. grin

I understand that the profit you make is likely to be your livelihood but some small tweaks could make a big difference.

Can you explain please merlot I’ve never heard the term before?

The posters deliberately de-railing friendly threads seem to have dropped off a little but there are a few diehards thrusting their views in totally inappropriate places. Regular posters get to know which zealots to scroll on past but for new posters desperate for comfort or support it must be terrifying.

I realise that a delete button left in our hands can derail threads but an edit button would relieve a lot of frustration.

I know what a pinned post is though.

merlotgran Fri 03-Apr-20 10:24:21

Sorry but I don't understand any of this.

Not sure what you mean by a pinned post Greymar ?

Ditto Greymar

A one stop pinned post would be helpful.

the helpful threads are getting sidetracked which isn't helpful at all in fact they could add to posters distress

Please consider my ideas re a pinned post with useful contacts

A messaging facility for those who need to talk.

I assume this site makes a profit? Please use the funds to help.
