    I would be happy to give some advice on plumbing matters if we had a section for it.
    I also run an other forum quadsuk.net and i could put some links on that site to here if this would help.

    I'm surprised you've not had any response from 369 readers. I suppose it's the same old story
    you're ignored, like brain surgeons, until required, then they want you Here ! Now !!

    I would make one in, on a 'Trades advice' service - all be it signs and lettering (don't think I
    would be overstretched in that field).

    I suppose it depends on whether the forum can be seen as a social tool and taken on board by people. If there was enough people using the forum then it would be deemed possible to raise sections applicable to peoples daily needs like, plumbers, electricians, builders etc.

    People do advertise their services in the classified ad section

    I took the original idea to mean 'diy advice', as opposed to a 'classified ad'

    We have a lot of suggestions for separate sections, I've seen forums that do this and they do become very cluttered and confused.

    However a general "advice needed" section might not be to bad an idea.

    I nearly rang you today. My mother has just been sent home from Wheatfields Hospice. Although she has a new-ish system nobody could fathom out how to override the time system as it was freezing when the system switched off.
    We think we have it sussed now.
    Thanks for your posting anyway. It just shows the value of your offer

    Sheffield Forum have a property and housing section and it is widely used by people asking for advice, and recommendations. There are plumbers, electricians and other tradespeople who provide genuine advice, and I know loads of people in Sheffield who use it to find tradespeople.

    Maybe if you promote it in every post you do lol.
    Forums take a long time to build and a lot of hard work.
    Sf has been around for many years, a lot longer than this one.

    Ok, a quick question...I had a combination boiler fitted a couple of years ago. There is a little white box next to it which sometimes has a little light on and sometimes not.There are three lights and a push button. The name is Honeywell. What is it please?
