And now for something completely different.... For those who have a spare few minutes between posts, you might like to try the new blue "Forum fun time" button on the left. As well as a link to the long standing quizzes and crosswords, I've finally worked out how make an online jigsaw. It's not as fancy as some, and only has square pieces, no clever knobbly shapes, but it's the best I can do for now and will hopefully bring a little pleasure. Only 'signed in' members can play, as it needs your username in order to assign a store to remember where you got to if you stop and want to carry on another day. You are also able to upload your own pictures to put back together again if you like. As always, have fun! Thumbs up Rob

Fantastic Rob, I am a jigsaw fanatic and have a 2000 piece one going at the moment, but the sky is giving me some pain!! Thank you so much for the new interest on here, how on earth did you think of that. Thumbs up Wave The choice of pictures is great.

I tried it yesterday (Sunday) but couldn't finish it as I had put the top of of the hospital too low down Angry and I couldn't see how to move it up without moving them all one at a time. Nice one Rob Blush I'll know better next time Thumbs up

I did one yesterday and another this morning. I will look at how to add a couple of my own pictures in the next few days. Thanks Rob

Many thanks Rob, just competed the first one and I'll hopefully do the rest over the next couple of weeks. I collect jigsaws of old maps (the more pieces the better) and I've just finished the 1610 John Speed map of Warwickshire Thumbs up

It's new toy time again! Wink Just at the top of the main topic list is a new pair of buttons, which allow members to quickly filter non-Coventry topics, leaving a "Coventry only" list, if preferred. One click of one or other of the buttons will quickly swap between the two choices - simples! Thumbs up

A-Z topic index

A quick look at the statistics page tells us that the number of posts has declined of late. There could be any number of reasons for that, including the simple fact that nothing remains constant. However, in a small effort to make the forum easier to use, and perhaps more attractive to newcomers who are not so familiar with the huge range of topics that we've discussed over the last seven years, I've added a new way to browse all the threads - a simple A-Z index. The link for it is next to the familiar "Topic index" in the toolbar at the top and bottom of every page, and it replaces the old "categories" link - those are still easily found down the left side of each page. Let's see if this method of browsing will get some of those old, long forgotten threads moving again! Cheers Thumbs up

Thanks Rob for this update and the A-Z Index. There is such a wealth of information on this site and anyway to make it easier to navigate is good. I think a decline in posts can be due to a wide variety of reasons such as demographics, people getting older and not able or interested in going online any more. If younger people don't come along, you get fewer active members. Plus there may be a more widespread decline in social media with all the hacking going on, people do get worried about internet security. And it could be as you say- something comes along that is new, gets very popular, then the novelty wears off. And there are many sites for sharing memories and anecdotes about Cov in the past, as I've recently discovered doing research for my Dirty Stop Out's Guide to 1970s Coventry. A few years back, setting up a Facebook page for example would have attracted loads of people but now it's like, 'not another....' (as Brenda of Bristol would have said!!) I'm sure this forum will keep going an be a great repository of the Coventry we are rapidly losing and of our own shared histories and memories. Many thanks! Cheers

Thank you Ruth, I appreciate that. Like you say, with the number of media sites around now, it has to water things down a bit. The A-Z index does appear to have revived a small handful of older topics though, so maybe it's starting to bring back a few subjects that had become buried in the depths, so to speak. And you'll have to tell us a bit more about "Brenda of Bristol" some time.... Wink Cheers
