    What forum changes do you want guys?

    There are people who do follow each other, share common musical tastes and interact, maybe not in public on the Wam but elsewhere. Many of the Wam’s photographers follow each other on Flickr and enjoy contact which started on the Wam but has expanded into something else. That is developing the community aspect, it all doesn’t have to be on here but a lot of us still return because this is where it all started. Using emojis is a little mark of acknowledgement, I can’t for the life of me understand why it’s an issue but you have flagged it up and as this thread and discussion proceed we’ll see if it’s an issue for others.

    We’re discussing ways of increasing traffic, interactions and engendering a greater sense of community. Those reactions at least indicate your post has been read and an acknowledgement that a ‘kindred spirit’ may be out there. They are not mandatory and don’t impinge on your other activity. Using likes and reactions across the Wam is to be encouraged IMHO.

    It might be me but I thought the emojis were like those on an iPhone - 👍👋🎉🤬🧐🤡☠️ Ah - can non iPhoners/iPad see these ?

    The software is fine now it seems to be working, I liked the 'new' emojis which seem to have disappeared. All 4 points on the poll. Some basic tidying up in reducing the number of categories. A strategy is needed to increase posting for current members and attract new people. I'd start with trying to engender some enthusiasm in the current membership by circulating this poll by PM or email to tell people that improvements are sought and ideas wanted. It isn't sufficient to rely on a poll here given the low traffic.

    Eric Clapton Documentary on BBC iplayer

    Do you mean Bridgewater Hall ? Did you watch the support The Black Feathers, I’ve followed them for the last 2/3 years after they played a gig at my friends house in front of about 20 people. Whilst they had been touring they actively sought to develop their skills by playing more gigs for free or donations. If I’d been able to get down I’d have loved to go and see them support a major, quality artist like Winwood. It was their biggest gig so far - they got good newspaper reviews and Winwood himself made a point of congratulating them afterwards.

    The Beatles White Album, Confirmed Remaster

    Nice one. I have both the remastered box sets, stereo and mono and they have all only been ripped and CDs never played on my system. The discs in both sets were very tight in the covers, a problem with many deluxe and box sets when the discs come in card covers rather than the traditional plastic case. The 2009 stereo remasters sound great imho though the 50th anniversary Pepper is for me a step upwards. The mono box set is fab, especially the early releases like Please Pleas Me and With The Beatles.

    Sorry but not impressed.

    I think there is mileage in that statement. I get the feeling more recently that there seems little input from the owner, that might just be my perception. The whole place seems in a lull at the moment but there are always peaks and troughs on any forum. The WC, good weather and holiday breaks all have a part to play but perhaps the time is right for some sort of membership drive

    What are you listening to right now?

    He’s on at The Sage - are you going Jeff ? We’re on holiday otherwise I’d loved to have gone.

    Excellent. I can see the type of clouds is so very similar to the sky in mine. Both taken on the eastern coast of course but maybe 250 miles apart. Send that to the SNP Head Office - just tell them it was taken in Edinburgh

    Thanks Ben, the light was fantastic, just an hour before sunset and I was very happy how it turned out. I had stood on the pier for a couple of hours to capture it as the sail out was delayed for some reason. I’ve tried to get this shot since May but have been thwarted by the weather on 3 previous occasions. I love it when a plan comes together !
