I notice the New Forum has formatting properties, so I'm just testing it out to see if it works.

Oldman ,
Do U Have an interest in R&S as you sure do know a lot?
If it ain't broke don't fix it.
Simples.
P.S - The New Site Is Shite.

Hi De Largo Dude,

My R&S interests are the same as yours.

Businesses have been forced to update their websites, at great cost, or suffer a loss in business. Perhaps the following site will explain:

As I can't post a new thread for Round 17 results. I'll try and post them here.
GROUPIES RESULTS - Autumn 2019 round 17 - JJ Atkins Plate / Queensland Derby / Stradbroke Handicap
Evidently the new fangled Forum caused problems for a number of players, and I suspect discouraged several regulars from lodging tips altogether.
This week's results advantage those who did brave the new world order on R & S and successfully lodged tips - multiple times in many cases :-)
On the plus side, the new Forum posts comments immediately so you don't have to wait for hours for your post to be displayed as was the case on the old Forum.
By inspired guesswork, I found that pressing the "add comment" button once, then refreshing the page worked a treat.
On to this week's results, Wilks was top scorer this round, tipping two of the three winners - Prince Fawaz and Mr Quickie. This has propelled him to top of both Leaderboards, thus making him a firm favourite to take out the Groupies Championships.
One Perfect Day is to be commended for being the sole tipster for Stradbroke Handicap winner, Trekking.

The final round of the 2019 Autumn Groupies Competition is the Tatts Tiara in a fortnight on Saturday 22 June. Hopefully the new Forum problems will be fixed by then.

I think some on here are being harsh. The old site needed to be updated for a number of business reasons including SEO, google rankings, advertising and security. R & S are a business with the Forum being only a small part of the overall structure. An enormous amount of work and expense has gone into the new site and with all things IT, there are a few bugs that are gradually being identified and rectified.
Give the site a chance before throwing up abuse.

It certainly is a strange new format for the Forum.
Being forewarned by your comment Todman regarding the window staying open as if nothing has happened, I only clicked once on "add comment", then refreshed the page. And lo, my tips were there!
