    Hello to everyone! I’m in Rotherham, and just joined the Leeds forum as you can see. Time to expand my horizons. :icon_lol:

    Welcome to Leeds forum Janus, enjoy your shopping tomorrow, as in most cities, keep a tight grip on your handbag, don't be too distracted by anyone,
    otherwise Leeds is a great place for shopping amongst friendly fellow notherners. :icon_wink:

    Apologies for the poor response to your hello and shopping posts Janus, I can only presume Leeds members are on holiday or have gone to the different festivals, with their wellies! :rolleyes:

    I just cropped and resized one of my piccies to 80x80 pixels (which I think is the max allowed) at 72 pixels per inch in Photoshop :icon_smile:
    Hope you're enjoying your day in Leeds and manage to dodge the rain! :icon_smile:

    No appologies needed Sir,:cool:, I `m pleased I was allowed to join, but thank you anyway. :thumbs2:

    Bygone, do you know whether or not photoshop is capable of enlarging a photo? The one I wanted to use is from the net, and it is the size now as it was when I "grabbed" it, and nowhere near as sharp as yours.

    I'm not aware of any way to enlarge a photo and also make it sharper i.e. more detail. You can use the sharpen filters but they won't add any detail that isn't already there, only noise. :icon_smile:

    Cool I might join the Sheffield Forum so I can defend my city when someone is poking fun of it or posting false information about Leeds or dissing our Regional News, "Look Leeds" :icon_wink:

    Hi Janus,

    Welcome to the forum!

  14. Highly recommended I am on there already just keeping an eye on them. Its very worthwhile because all Sheffield's ills, problems, lack of City Centre, loss of airport, lack of investment, poor acoustics in their Arena is just down to one thing.....their poor old cousins up the Motorway L**ds. We get 'slammed' for everything !

    Thanks for the continuing welcomes:wave:

    Like Ramsden, I can recommend the Sheffield forum. Mainly because it is very lively, with a large number of members who provide a vast amount of information, advice & opinions. BTY, does Doncaster or Barnsley have a forum?
  16. Yeah lots of good stuff on there too. You just realise that the two cities are like twins really. I don't contribute all that much even though I work down there about two days a month, but much of it is interesting but I think specific to Sheffield, even if it mirrors whats going on here. I do try and put the Leeds point of view in when the paranoia and the knocking is a bit unfair from some minorities on there ! In the main we have very much in common.

    Not come across any Forums in this stable for anywhere else yet.

    Someone started a Rotherham forum on Proboards and it never really got going. I was just looking at it and the latest post on there seems to be April this year. Other than that, most of the other posts were in 2011, so not very good really.

    As for the type of forum or host (if that is the right term) I note that this forum is the same as Sheffield in respect of format. What is the name or format called (as opposed to Proboards for example)?

    It is powered by vBulletin (as stated at the bottom of each page).

    Hi Janus and welcome. I have visited a few forums around Rochdale, Skipton, Nelson etc. But non of them are as good as this one. Oh dear, all my dogs are barking, its just started to thunder, here I go, I'll be huddled up with them on the floor telling them its all ok...
