Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Nothing wrong with the policy though. If it has the TV Ark logo on it for example, and it's not from TV Ark or it's associated social media channels, then of course it should be removed. That watermark they use is there for a reason.

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I’m not convinced anyone actually bought pick n mix from Woolworths to be honest. It was just there. You'd be lucky to get a look in for a scoop in Nottingham on Saturdays or during half term, the place was always full of kids filling up cups on their way to the cinema and whatnot. Wilko was the sa...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

Everyone calls it Smiths, so changing to WHS seems daft. What nobody on either tweet chain has suggested despite that coming up, though, it that maybe they can't just call it just Smiths, because of Smyths Toys. Maybe they should've adopted a logo with a similar layout to the old BBC One branding. A...

Re: The Barclays and other non-Lloyds/TSB Bank thread

Yeah, the TV advert acts like they are a bank, not a building society. Are they planning to demutualise?

Re: High Street chain collapse sweepstake

Re: The Technology Thread

Non-user replaceable batteries should be banned on the grounds it creates more e-waste.

And it's odd - top of the line phones lack the 3.5mm port now, but my cheap one bought only last year still does have it. Cheaper phones wouldn't normally be expected to have features expensive ones don't!

Re: 🥳🥂 20 years of Metropol 🎂🎈

The usual branding for the forum actually looks more dated than this one - due to it being based on the London 2012 Olympic Games logo. So I'm inclined to agree.
