Words cannot describe the fail

When I get asked if I'd like to purchase a green bag at the shops I tell them straight out "I don't like the environment!". I find that quite an extraordinary statement. Are you not a human being? Do you not need air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat? Are these things not provided by "the env...

Emissions trading scheme gripe

What happens when nature errupts a volcano? how many MILLION "green" cars worth of offset does that mess up? Let alone when the earth wobbles in it's orbit.

Nothing is "renewable" unless you fly back to the sun to return the solar energy you used.

buy in ebay

Ebay is just like quokka or gumtree, except you get buyer protection. It's usually alot cheaper to buy stuff on ebay especially from stores, because they don't have the overhead of a retail store and extra staff etc. But then you don't get the customer service of a retail store.

There is security that patrols the carparks and I seriously doubt someone will want to touch it. But Richo has a point, wait until an open day then you can really show it off.

Hi sellis, I just did a compact and repair of the Forums database and the search feature works again. This is the first repair it has needed since the forums were created over 2 years ago.
Thanks for pointing out the issue.

how to post photos

ooops... the file upload function was set incorrectly on the forums. I've just tested it myself and should be all good now.
You can either host the image on another website and include the link in your post, or simply upload it to AEVA forums.

Hi Richo, I suppose the default avatars could be upgraded, however each member can have their own unique profile avatar so it doesn't look stock. Would you like to find a bunch of more relevant avatars to replace the current default ones? Send them to: webmaster | AT | aeva . asn .au (do the math) A...

Ok, to keep you happy I've placed a link at the bottom of the forum posts page linking back to the forum home.

hahaha the server is located in WA so the timezone may be different for some of you. You can change the timezone in your user profile under member control panel. That should hopefully fix the time issue.

It was a server-based issue. The RSS topic feed file was missing but I managed to recover it.

Definately fixed now.
