1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    The Protek ones are superb.
    Photos don't do them justice.

    Does it need to be secure mate? You don't order online with them. You phone up old fashioned style. :thumb:

    This is a new format in web design language... websites a year or so ago, start with the address http:// then the website name.... the new format now is https:// The s is why you are seeing not secure, this is now common on all websites that haven’t updated to the new format (including mine) but for some companies, businesses etc... it’s a lot of hassle so they don’t bother, but the protek site is secure, and anyway you can pay through PayPal, so your money should be safe... I phoned them today to check they got my order, and it was being posted today

    p.s. http means hypertext protocol.... https means hypertext protocol secure.... so if it still starts with http then that’s why it says ‘not secure’

    But does the website need to be HTTPS ? There is no online ordering on there. Why would it need to be secure?

    No bill it doesn’t need to be https... most websites that have been running for a while will still have a domain name that starts with http... newer websites, and large company sites probably have all updated to the new https... depending on what software you used to build your website, I used webplus x6, it can be difficult to upgrade, and time consuming, that’s why a lot of people haven’t bothered... but browsers now are favouring the new https, so that is why they are showing ‘not secure’ because they can’t ‘guarantee ‘ that it is... but if you have good anti virus, such as Kaspersky, that should protect and warn you if anything’s amiss... more info here, will probably explain it better than I can https://blog.easynews.com/http-vs-https-whats-the-difference/
