    Are you encouraging your supporters to vote for another candidate, if so, who?

    All Parties need to wake up to the use of technology and the more crucial personal contact– be brilliant to have a soap box on Queens Square or Eagles Meadow with all candidates speaking direct to their electorate and being challenged on the spot rather than orchestrated events.

    There have been a couple of candidates in town doing similar over the last couple of weeks – megaphone style in the street prominence.

    To me this type of stuff should be happening all the time rather than just every few years!

    Its a best effort poll – we did look at some demographic stuff or even commissioning one formally however the costs involved are huge. Previously the method for the euro elections appeared to work, but there is always the argument that a stopped clock is right twice a day etc!

    It just says I’ve already voted. Which I haven’t.

    I guess that’s down to the dynamic IP range I share with other Sky users.

    Yes – it is not a specific block on you, however learning from our Euro ones we have tried to make this less causally gameable , although it is trivial to work around it if that would be anyones intent.

    However hopefully those types would have something better to do on a Saturday evening :)

    There is some anti-spam bits in place to avoid multi votes, which if there are people on similar computers or IP ranges could block votes.

    There has been a few hundred votes so far so will be a representative sample and will leave it open for another 30mins.

    Are you mixing up the two Town Centre Forum articles?

    There is the parking one here and one about a clean up here.

    The latter has the paragraph “Alun Hughes from Alun Hughes Film, Music and Nostalgia Wrexham said: “We can look at niche markets, perhaps targeting children.”

    No editing has taken place on either after publishing, although a couple of typos could suggest some was needed :)

    To me the idea came across to make the festivals / saturday markets as themed and targeted towards kids, in a positive way, rather than make Wrexham resemble Vulgaria ! :)

    Good! Issue was some over enthusiastic anti-spammer stuff kicking in.

    A few more tweaks done today, will review all posts in the thread and emailed feedback and see which bugs remain to be squished!

    Another update put through – which ought to see things load much quicker.

    In terms of the forums we are rolling out the new posts, and the bigger reply / quote buttons etc too – plus links look like links now!

    Got more to come as the todo list seems to have a knack of growing as much as it gets cleared!

    Not new site related but what’s a rogue trader garden incident?

    I have no idea – going to try and find out now :D

    What happened to If it aint broke why fix it?

    There were some big issues with the old site, which have been solved by the new one. I dont create work and expense for myself for no reason ;)

    There will be more tweaks coming today and over the weekend – including the ‘new posts’ button and more clarity for in thread replies etc
