There is one on the left too, but:
a) That links to the first post in a thread, not the last. Which is annoying if the thread goes on to more than one page.
b) "The sticky" icon doesn't change much when there is a new post.

If Korexus would quit making everything "Sticky" he wouldn't have these problems.

The problem of more than one page is pretty easy to deal with just scroll down to the bottom and click on whatever page you want. For people like me who sometimes go a few days between visits I might miss more than 1 page of posts if the topic is a good one.
There's no need to fear...........

That must have been some praying you did there :)

Oh, and while on the subject (of football) what is the deal with this Healy character???? Cant he just calm down for one single game?

I was in front of the TV going all Frankie when they played Denmark.

(Oh, for those of you that might be younger then me I am referring to the hit "Relax, dont do it".)

The meet-up /WokCon was great!

We were probably all thinking I'll give it from noon till about 4 or 5pm. We were still there after 10pm ... , even though some had to still get back to Bristol and Oxford.

Brilliant. Lots of hilarious chit-chat about past games, past players ... current players ...

We must definitely do it again. Let's look out for the next time one of our foreign-based friends happens to be coming to London, build it around that, and invite everybody else to try to get here. Or does anyone have a villa in Tuscany?

I think we had a player from Israel like 8-9 years ago. Maybe we could all hook up in a pub on the Palestinian border. Do they serve beer at the checkpoints?

Actyally I know a guy who has a villa in Tuscany. Actually, I think he has two! Lucky guy...

Anyhow. It was real fun meeting you guys. Unfortunately I had to leave early (around 5) for we had reservations at a musical and at a restaurant and I had to be there. But the pub was great, the beer was wonderful and you guys were ... fun! :-)

For the next WokCon we should plan more time than just a few hours at a pub. Maybe that villa in Tuscany isn't such a bad idea. Or maybe you all want to visit Norway? 8)

Heh. The beer is insanely expensive, but you are allowed to bring your own into the country and we have lots of Russian boats here bringing cheap booze... 8)

Either in summer would be fantastic.

Personally I'd perfer Norway as I'm sure most of us have been to Italy...

In 4 to 5 yrs time you can all come visit me in my French retreat in Le Bas Coreil. There'll be plenty of room for all present WOKers. You have all got tents right?!! :lol:
