Thank you @Moogie, happy to help.
I would like to second @rawkaren's point about chat. I don't participate in Google+ because I can't do that anonymously and because it isn't anonymous, everything I post gets turned into something Google can use to sell advertisers data about me.

I have stopped posting on FB for the same reason. Any discussion of diet or health on FB results in the participants being bombed with ads for sleazy supplements and miracle cures. I don't want to participate in activities that attract people to these sites who might not be savvy enough to know just how sleazy these ads are and how worthless the products they push.
Thanks for the invite. Would love to help.

Could not have put it better myself! I'm reasonably tecchie but FB is the last social media site I would ever get involved in and the data security is atrocious. I have been practising Instagram and I'm not yet spammed but as soon as I am, then I'm off!
Thanks all :) I'm just setting things up now!
As for the chat, yes, it's still something I'd like to see added. I've been doing some experiments with Wordpress based chat systems as there's not a lot around for phpBB. I'll need to have a word with the tech guys about how it'll work with our login system so this will probably also be in the new year as we're winding down for a Christmas break now.
Rightio, Team Revamp, we have a forum (scroll down, it's near the bottom of the homepage) and I've put a topic in there to start us off.
Looking forward to the revamp with larger text please, I really miss my double tap ipad expansion :0)
So it's the chat room taking people away from typing responses? Shame. I like a written comment for second glance reading/research/memory. Let's encourage that back please.
I hope 2015 will get us all healthy and happy, with special hugs to @Moogie for everything {{{+}}}
And more emojis please :0)
I'd just like to say that the chat room is not being used by anyone any more so it is not to blame for any lack of replies on the forum.
I tried to use the chat several times but I was there alone so I gave up....

I wouldn't stop coming here, even with a chat room, I am the kind of gal who does several things at once and can't stay put for long so I tend to lose focus easily when I chat :razz: It would be good to have a direct interaction without having to open hangouts or go on twitter though :wink:
Is there a way for the Tracker to have a "recent trend weight" calculation, based on roughly same as that used by Libra.
My trend weight on forum tracker is about 2 kg less than Libra. Feels good but it is putting too much emphasis on history, 16 months ago.

The line of best fit can still be there but this would either be a new line or just a calculation somewhere off the chart. Means i wouldnt need Libra
Don't worry, the trend line on the new tracker will be better than the current one :)
I'm one of those yellow haters and me too think those cartoon figures are immature.
IMHO white as a background should not be dropped nor black in the type color since that is the most easy way to read for us of a certain age LOL.
Since I quilt I love a wide range of colors, most have their part in different projects and I think that turquoise is such a happy and optimistic color. It might fit in somewhere on the forum?

I think it's great that you have invited us to give opinions.
