    Saw the Bala bus zoom straight through this the other day when someone was stepping out.

    Not sure what can be done in a practical way though.

    I think that the decision to close the thread ‘sad announcement’ was a very draconian use of the veto that you (Wrexham.com) have indicated will come into play soon.
    It has been refreshing that certain contributors have introduced a degree of levity into the forum that certainly raised a few smiles.
    Perhaps the veto option would be more appropriately used on threads that go on and on and on without conclusion and repeated posts saying exactly the same thing over and over again. I cite 350 homes for Llay as an example, but there are many more.
    If that is how it is to be used, I would urge a serious rethink.

    I am working on the new bits – and hopefully when it comes in will be embraced, or at least give a virtual cuddle and test before writing it off :D

    A 40 page thread having 30k ‘reads’ as per the forum software is not that unusual – but will record those who use screen readers, spiders, caching systems, preload under a twitter app link, facebook post prefetch etc.

    In terms of spiders and bots, the top right and bottom footer figure from Google Analytics has such things stripped from it.

    There is a finite measure available, and IMHO it is much more preferable to getting a handful of Wrexham.com’ers writing a diary (!) or even us cooking up some numbers then multiplying them by some random number :D

    Going to close this one off…. Hopefully such censorship and restrictions on freedoms can be forgiven ;)

    Appears that battle was at Palashi – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    “The name Palashi is derived from the red flower Butea sp. – either Butea frondosa or Butea monosperma. In Bengali that is পলাশ Pôlash; the name Plassey is from a western Indic form like Hindi or Urdu palāśi, pronounced [pəˈlaːsi]”

    Looks a nice place: https://www.google.com/maps/place/23%C2%B048'00.0%22N+88%C2%B015'00.0%22E/@23.7768115,88.2805605,1976m/data=!3m1!1e3!4m2!3m1!1s0x0:0x0?hl=en

    Has anyone been, or heard from anyone, who has attended the sessions so far?

    I agree – and tangents might be spun out to their own threads, with the general aim to try and keep things so its a nice arena for reasonable debate – lighthearted or otherwise ! :)
