    Links to Weekly Mags Thread - Now Moved to Regulars 10th Nov 18 at 1:08 PM
    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.php?t=5918490

    While SEARCH was not working I created the above thread to maintain a list of links to the weekly puzzle mags (Chat, Real People, That's Life etc.). Search is now fixed, but maintaining the thread is easy and takes very little time, so what are people's views on:-

    1) Do you want me to keep the thread going?

    2) If Yes, Where should the thread be? possibilities are:
    ... a) In "Compers Chat" and bumped to keep it near the top (current situation)
    ... b) In "Compers Chat" as a Sticky
    ... c) In "Regulars" alongside the "Puzzler" and "T-A-B" threads
    ... d) Any other suggestions (I very much doubt that a Sticky on Main Forum would be allowed)

    Please comment here in this thread, not in the weekly mags thread itself

    A final decision needs to be made before the end of November (when the advents start) and I will keep the thread going until then.

    Hi One-Eye
    Thanks for suggesting this, and also keeping it up to date.
    I would like to see it kept please.
    'Regulars' seems the best place for it imo.

    I don't use it but I cannot see that keeping it could be detrimental to anyone's use of the forum.

    I agree with the majority: yes, please keep the thread, and (c) in 'Regulars'.
    Thanks so much for all you've done One-Eye, and thanks to everyone who lists comps on this site.

    Wow, yes please!
    It's been so useful while search has been broken and is ideal for those who like to do particular comps.


    As long as the comps are posted individually on the main board I can't see anyone having a problem with it. All that's happening is that One-Eye is kindly making it easier for those who choose to use the thread. If some folk don't, then it's no skin off their nose.


    And regulars might be the best place for it so it doesn't get expired like Puzzler and TAB used to.

    Thank-you One-Eye xx

    Thanks so much One-Eye, it has been so useful. I'd like for it to be kept please, and I don't mind where, poss regulars with TAB? Thanks for all of your hard work, it's been brilliant to have them all in one place.

    Yes please keep it. It has been really handy as I usually miss loads of the weeklies. Thank you for doing it One-Eye.

    This would be my favourite



    b) In "Compers Chat" as a Sticky
    Good Luck for December!

    I don't mind where it is to be honest, if you very kindly decide to keep it going as I'll just subscribe to it but I was wondering if you'll be amending it with new ones as you've been doing or if you'll be adding each one individually as a new comment, like they do on the daily and gleam threads, so we can use the ticks to see at a glance what we've done? My apologies if that's cheeky!
    PS thank goodness the search feature is fixed as it was also bringing up the ones in GO for me!

    I have inserted the date I added each line to the thread so people can see if it is new or has been there some time.

    For users of the Old Green version of the forum:-
    One way to use this feature is to look at the date you thanked the post, then review any lines with that date or a more recent date. Finally "unthank" the post and "rethank" it so the current date appears alongside your thanks.
