    Hi

    Sorry didn't know how else to contact the mods.

    I have a couple of questions...


    Firstly, just a small thing-but I have my 5 stars and all the power user tools... however-power user isn't coming up by my name like everyone else? Why is this?


    Secondly-how come some of the wedding planning diaries are sunk and some aren't? I noticed when I started mine it said all diaries will be sunk so the top page isn't over run by them, but surely if people are commenting it means they're interested and want to see what's going on... also mine and some others have been sunk-however, I have noticed other people's diaries still come up on the first page. Why is this?

    I wondered this and raised the question yesterday Donna but haven't had it clarified as of yet. I have noticed the majority of them have been sunk but there are still some that haven't been sunk.. wondering why if it is now a rule that they will be sunk that it's not consistent. I have been through and bookmarked all wedding planning diaries of interest, but I'm with you that if people are reading and commenting regularly, then the post is of interest and should remain un-sunk! I did un-sink mine yesterday but it has now been sunk again.

    If the forum isn't for discussing your wedding planning then I'm not sure what else it is for! x

    Wedding diaries are sunk after 12 hours to free the front page of numerous ones.

    Why has this just been enforced now though? My diary had never been sunk before and it's been open for ages!! x

    It's not been enforced just now, it's been like that for as long as I remember. If your diary has gone off the first page it would have gone un noticed most likely, but if they are on the first page and have not been posted in for over 12 hours they get sunk, hence why it needs to be book marked,

    So can you un-sink yourself if you have an update that you'd like to share with everyone (not just those who have bookmarked your thread)? And it will get sunk again after the next 12 hours of inactivity?

    I update mine very regularly so it would have been on the first page many many times but has only just been sunk this weekend! So I'm just confused why it's started happening now.. (and Donna has picked up on it at the same time as being out of the blue). x

    im glad you have mentioned is as I was getting confused and thought something was wrong with my page or something.. I too had noticed mine wasn't moving even though had updated and I wondered how come someone elses hadn't moved after I had commented then saw others were moving !! haha.. I never knew of the sunk/sink thing.. x also flossie it wouldn't let me post of your diary this morning, I kept pressing it but nothing would show.. BM dresses look great.. in general I don't really like a lot of BM dresses, a lot of them look old fashioned to me and wrong colours but yours are lovely, best colours, the nicest BM dresses I have seen.. if I was having BM's id like same.. :) x

    just wondered if someone could clarify, so because my diary has been sunk, it will now stay sunk and only if it has been bookmarked by anyone they will see it, so no new people will now ever see it ?? unless trawl back through ? im just trying to understand how this works as never heard of it until today. Thanks..

    You can unsink your planning thread. its sunk after 12 hours of no comments if on the front page.

    I asked the same thing in the general chinwag thread.

    So you can definitely unsink it yourself? Then it will just get sunk again after 12 hours of inactivity? I don't want to keep unsinking it if I'm not supposed to be doing that lol...

    Seems a bit odd as if there has been no activity for 12 hours anyway, naturally the more recent threads will appear on the first page anyway?

    That sometimes depends on how active the site has been. Sometimes if it has been very quiet they can sit on the front page for a while.

    So can we unsink when we have an update GF? That we want everyone to see, not just those who have bookmarked our thread? x

    Yes that is correct, but after 12 hours it will be sunk purely to keep the front page free, there are a fair few who have them going at the moment and if they are all on the front page it takes away from the other stuff. Hope this helps.
