Welcome to Balloon Chat
« on: March 14, 2014, 09:23:23 AM »
A warm welcome to anyone that is looking at the forum for the first time or to those returning again and again. The site is coming up for five years old on the 1st April 2014.
There is a wealth of information given here for all to use so please have a look around and enjoy and if possible if you get inspired to have a go at making any of the models then
please post your efforts for others to see. There is a search button to help with finding that certain something that you are looking to make, so good luck and a very happy twisting.

A little advertisement plug now, I do run two online balloon stores in the UK, http://www.balloonartwholesale.co.uk and http://www.sempertexballoons.co.uk
Both links are at the top of every page.
The company name is balloon art wholesale and if you are looking for anything balloon related then please pop over and have a look.
The Qualatex website is set up as a retail store, we do offer wholesale prices so please get in touch, thanks for reading.

I have just been informed that the forum is actually six years old today 18th march although it was not up and running till 1st April, but six years, I thought it was five.
Now that is funny.

Graham.

I tried to add new toppic post on Balloon Chit Chat but I get the message that I haven't added enough characters but I have done and it won't publish. I tried to edit this post and add more but same issue, although it has allowed a few characters

Rob and I had a similar thing, I noted it was when I tried to cut and paste some of the content.
I'm putting it down to the phpbb template, this is updated every few months with the latest version
and I'm assuming there is a gremlin in the works on the new offering.

Fingers crossed when the next version is updated this will cure the problem.

I noticed that there are certain words/paragraphs it does not like, I have yet to work out what the words or paragraphs are tho, I just know that when I put in the entire text it doesn't always work but then I change a few words and move things around a bit, leave some bits out then it will work then. very odd.
