That's a very useful 2p. I'd already thought about the radio connection but not fractal mapper. Good point about the colour choices too. Hmmm. Will crack on with some more thoughts this afternoon. Cheers.

Hey Redrobes, there is nothing like the voice of experience so don't sell yourself short there. I enjoyed your post and it gave me food for thought as well. Not that I am currently pushing anything but at some point I just might be.
Right now it's all about Torstan's logo but all of us are absorbing this as well.

That was spam, Tilt. Anytime, well most of the time, that you see a signature with links in it to stuff that isn't map related then it is spam. Also the text doesn't make sense.

thought it sounded stupid - but then again... I didn't see a link to strange places and I'm guessing, since I'm not administrating - didn't even think of it being spam, I get some of it on my own forum and on my blogs but its mostly very easy too see as its long text describing world of warcraft gold mining or totally random letters *lol*
We get a lot of spam on this site except that its flagged and fragged in no time (esp if Gandwarf is online). It is usually easy to spot but what has been happening is that text from other forums get reposted so its often semantically correct but has no relevance. Sometimes, in the fringe cases, I post to elicit more info and if none is forthcoming then we can assume that it was spam. Often they dont have a sig set up until they have several posts instilled into the forum then they change it which acts globally. So if you see posts along any of these lines then hit the 'Report Post' triangle under our avatars and it gets a lookie by the CLs.
Tip to real mapper forum newbies posting for the first time. Don't have a sig with links in it to totally irrelevant stuff and until your a slightly trusted member, reply to posts with at least some relevance to the context of the topic or prepare to run the gauntlet with the ban hammer !
