Someone might want to tell Gav that we can't read his post since you can't read any posts in the BST section, LOL!

Yeah I had no idea it wasn't working until I couldn't actually see my post!
Really hope it gets fixed soon, FS is huge here and such a great community resource.

To those who deal but only use the forums for communication.. Silly silly you.. be it ebay or anything Always have alternative ways to contact..

HWC is a minuscule fraction of the size and resources of the likes of ebay - amazon etc and the first thing I always do when buying or selling anywhere is get in contact through mail / phone.
You never know when someone may have a technical issue/account issue etc etc.

You can still read Gav's post by hovering over the link for a preview. But the BST is supposed to be read only ATM, which it isn't.

it's unfortunate yes but just think of the frenzy of buying and selling when it comes back on line. It's my top 5 links to hit every day lookin for deals etc so I'll be happy to have the "needle" again the wife is happy i'm in rehab :)

I think this thread has run it's course, the mods really need to lock this down. The BST should not be opened until it is fully functional and if it takes months then so be it. The forum doesn't exist to serve us, it exists to give us a place to hang out and such and is offered as a privilege, not our right.
+1, Amen to that.. BST is there just for us folks if we want to sell and buy stuff, the forum isn't meant to be just for BST, it's for discussion, people to hang out really.. And I agree mods should lock this down or clean it up if they wish.. at least Gav or someone is working to fix it up.. which is good..
