This is probably futile but could you try to hassle the powers that be to upgrade the forum software to something less..... nineties?

I'm limited in what I can do, but if you scroll to the bottom I added a button that allows you to turn the forum to something that looks less nineties.

I didn't realise that the ability for a thread to change peoples mind was a requirement for a thread remaining open.

As you said yourself, the thread was entertaining. It was also lacking in abuse, racism, sexism etc, yet it was shut.

If locking polite, entertaining threads becomes the norm, what's the point?

Fair enough, I have unlocked it - but it was showing the signs of becoming less than civilised and with Italy starting tomorrow it didn't seem to make much sense to keep going around in circles.

That's very good of you. Many thanks. Now, watch as the thread instantly derails into abusive posts. Either that or nobody posts in it again..... :lol:

Help please.

How do you guys customise the name of a hyperlink?

Been trying to work it out for a while now but it seems a lost cause as this point.

Click the URL button above the full post editor. In the first set of square brackets it will say 'url'. Make it 'url=' and paste the link you want after the =. Then between the opening and closing tags, write what you want displayed.

Here's an example, which you can see the workings of in the post editor if you hit quote:
