    Hi Wiseguy, welcome to the new site. We only went online at around 4am this morning and we wanted to ensure everything was working smoothly before emailing everyone.

    I appreciate your frustration with the changes in the past, but I can confirm that the old Leeds-Forum.co.uk owned by Chris has now become LeedsForum.co.uk and is run by the people behind the SheffieldForum.co.uk site (which has nearly 100,000 users!). We're looking at replicating the success we had in Sheffield to give Leeds a big and popular forum.

    Hi LFAdmin.
    Hope you have every success with this new forum.
    Question? Can you embed videos?

    The answer to your question is 'no' I'm afraid. Our experience on SF has shown us that a lot of forum users who don't have fast broadband connections (and there are plenty of them around) can struggle to load threads which contain images or video, so we'd prefer people to post links to externally hosted images and video which allow other forum users to make the decision whether to click a link or not.

    I notice that the forum has changed and that it has members from sheffield forum and one medusa is a moderator here.
    I have history with her and others from S F and im sure they wont take long to ban me even though I have been a member on here for over 3 yrs.
    Well if they do I can live with it but I feel sure it wont be long till this place is just like S F where the liberal PC lot will stifle debate and ban those who dare to be different.You have been warned.

    The new site owner is not to blame for any actions of previous site owners, is he?

    I'm here to caretake it until the forum has its own team- nothing more, nothing less. I don't claim to live in Leeds, I don't claim to and I don't really want to get into any arguments.

    Enough please.

    If you see what I've posted around here a number of times you'll see that I'm a package deal with LF Admin and I'm a caretaker manager until the forum has its own team.

    Move along please.

    hi, recognise medusa from sheffield forum, are most of you from sheffield forum?

    Actually I disagree. I've "known" Medusa for many years, she does a FANTASTIC job keeping everyone in line at SF, and if someone can do half the job she does on this forum, I'm sure it'll be a success. She's always gone above and beyond what an admin should do, I think you should be greatful for the experiencing the greatness that is Medusa ! :cool:
