    Yeh it is, but there are a few benefits. It means now when you post asking for a quote its private and everyone doesnt know your in the market for x or y which some dont like and also something a robk mentioned was if you order a lot of kit and people can figure out where you are its a thief's dream.

    I think it will be met by approval from the sponsors too. They'll be pleased their captive market isn't being targetted. When I first read this, I hadn't thought of the "Thief's dream", but it is a very good point!

    If I created a thread in the new forum, would I need to remember to subscribe to it for it to be drawn to my attention, or will appear in the "New Posts" list anyway?

    I think it's a great idea! It feels like I've had to report a lot of people recently trying to "steel". Quite annoying!

    Thanks

    If your default is subscribe to new posts (the forum default) then your automatically enabled for instant email notifications. Either way though it shows up for you in the whats new list when your logged in.

    It for that reason that whenever we get large deliveries, I always take the cardboard to the local recycling centre myself instead of putting it into the normal bins. As we're a fairly rural school, the possibility of a break in is quite high and we have had equipment stolen over the years.
