I looked at a problem this morning for a user and their settings were wrong so as suggested in my previous post the above settings are what most people should correct to.

Re: Swiss Manager - Help Needed

Roger, except for creating a new entry in the ECF grading list. We have already beaten this topic to death at the start of this whole thread. I will leave the thread here, as it is now in danger of becoming yet another forum deja vu all over again retread. You are close to taking a break again Paul.

Topic closed refer to the Take 2 thread please.

When I'm logged in, Forum posts are timed in GMT, but when I log out, they're in BST.
Curious.


(Edited to get it the right way round!)
Check your board preference in your user control panel - it "should" be pretty automatic now at UTC+1

Following confirmation of Kirsan Ilyumzhinov's withdrawal, I have created a new poll at viewtopic.php?f=31&t=9730.

Carl, please would you close the poll at the start of this thread.
Done seems you have to just limit the number of days rather than close.

Further evidence, I also think, that Malcolm has disproportionate influence on the Board.
