    Michael, Well done on setting this up - hopefully it will grow to be a worthy replacement for hummy.org.
    Would it be possible to add separate folders for the HDR FoxT2 and HD Fox T2 as these seem to be the "hot topics" especially with the portal being imminent and the ongoing sound/hdmi issues. Hopefully this would allow easier searching for these in future. IIRC hummy.org had these as separate topics.

    Agree, it definitely needs an HDR FOX T2 forum.

    Is this hummy 2.0 :D

    Aha - I refresh the front page and find you've now done it.

    Well done.

    You have of course now set a precedent and we'll expect all improvements to be done within 20s

    I've added those two. If someone wants to suggest a better way to organise things then I'll gladly change things.

    Hah. I'm actually in bed on my iPhone, sad I know. I've enabled tapatalk for this forum for iphone users. It's a 59p app that allows a user to browse forums on their iPhone in a nice way.

    Any other changes or anything just ask.. I need to sort out some moderators also...

    This may be a silly question but what does a moderator need to do.

    And please don't say moderate.

    needs to be able to have spare time to check posts and make sure all is well on the site and to keep topics clean

    A moderator would be expected to delete unwanted posts I.e. Spam/adverts.. Respond to forum reports I.e. When a user reports a post or private post.. Etc :)

    I could do some but I would be liable to only visit a few topics as given the amount of posts there were on hummy.org you'd need a lot of time to cover everything. I guess you need a lot of moderators.

    (This post is a sly attempt to keep me at the top of the most posts list :) )

    Well done on the new site. Have been following the discussion on Digital Spy for a couple of months hoping that hummy would burst back to life. Alas, it would seem not so this site is a great idea and much appreciated. :D

    Quick question regarding protocol. I have a copy of Barry's excellent posting (from Hummy-org) about multifunction remote controls for the Freesat and Freeview boxes. Can I post it with an appropriate acknowledgement as to source ?

    I'm posting in this old topic because some of my comments seem to have been accidentally or deliberately misunderstood in other quarters (and the topic in question has been closed).

    The forum has developed significantly since it was first set up, and I am involved in other forums at various levels of responsibility, so the subject of governance is of considerable interest (and concern). To liken it to a country, because there is one person responsible for the forum on the wider Internet, there is a single head-of-state who is not there by any democratic process other than whether the forum gathers users or loses them. This is a given.

    The question then is whether the head-of-state is the monarch of a constitutional republic, or the head of a dictatorship. The forum is beyond the point where this question is irrelevant.

    It is not meant to be a personal dig at talos, but what, for example, makes talos a super-moderator? Just because he asked for it (as per further up this topic)? Should we not have some kind of appointment by merit system?

    As has been implied, I do have a disagreement with a moderator decision (there would be no point denying it, or avoiding it). But that was only the spark which lead to a wider enquiry. If one has a disagreement in a democratic organisation, there are defined processes to resolve it. With this many users, hummy.tv is ripe for constitutional republicanism.

    Who cares? Forums succeed or fail largely by the acceptance of its users of the way they are run. Go elsewhere if it is not to your liking and if you are right sufficient others will join you and move away too.
