Re: An overview of the new forum

the activation emails should be pretty instantaneous. But do check spam/junk folders if it doesn't appear.

Re: EC permitted colourants

•To cut refined sugars from the diet (most pets tend to be fed whole grains don't they? So this shouldn't be so much of a concern - except perhaps for treats, but healthy treats do exist) Just wanted to note that in terms of effect on blood glucose processed white carbs are considered to be very si...

Re: An overview of the new forum

Current inboxes are 50 x 4 - that's 200. It is, but you're allowed up to 4 extra folders in addition to your standard inbox i.e. 250 :) Unless of course Mary and I are special..... Well - not withstanding the fact that you and Mary :P I think I am just delusional. I had read it as 4 in boxes... but...

Re: An overview of the new forum

Current inboxes are 50 x 4 - that's 200. I assume you are thinking of the out going mail too? ETA -- the settings for increasing PM storage for a group are very basic - and I suspect that the out boxes will be included in the increase (though we can't test this until we start using the system fully)...

Chat rooms - details needed

Just trying to find details of any active chat room where rat folks meet up to go onto the new forum useful stuff in Rat chat - since the links we currently have aren't active.

If anyone knows of any please let me know - or does nobody do live chat any more?

Re: An overview of the new forum

The main purpose of FR is to provide a huge, accurate informational resource to anyone who needs help with their ratties, Kammi - we would never want the resources here to be hidden from Joe Public. Obviously we do have hidden boards that are just for members - but they aren't the ones about rat car...

Re: Lost rattie found me...

I am afraid that rats can carry Weils with no outward signs of illness and are therefore a risk to humans and other rats if they have *potentially* been exposed to this illness. If he was 'starving and dehydrated' then he was likely outside for a while and he would only have needed to be exposed to ...

Re: 'pedigree' names

Main reason here is that I think names are really important, and everyone needs a name that fits. I often choose names that reflect the way that I feel about the individual rat, or their meaning as part of my "whole". I always run naming themes here and have used native American indian names, real a...

Re: An overview of the new forum

Just wanted to clarify why there is such a delay as I feel bit responsible. The server the forum is moving to is managed by an individual (non-rat fancy) as a small business from home. She was away for much of June and she couldn't get started with the set up until after her return. I am then respon...

Re: I need advice / help

Can I make a suggestion from the rats point of view... might it be the cats that are spooking them? I know cats and rats can live happily side by side but sometimes the rats do need to habituate and this doesn't happen overnight. I know Alison has a cat but I don't think it goes in her rat room... w...

Re: Some forum parts are inaccessible

I'm getting the general errors when I'm trying to post. But I click back and then try to post again and it works. Weird. I suggest everyone tries this. I have been updating a load of the articles recently (currently held in a hidden area of the board) and this involves a lot of editing. I get the e...

Re: Some forum parts are inaccessible

The ACP does indeed record indivudual actions taking place via the ACP - but has no record of the event, Anthony.
