Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I also think people are sometimes forgetting there are already more options for your TV forum needs:- MediaTalkForum - consisting of about 10 posts this year since they popped up on here to spam it and then fled. A mix now of spam posts never removed, 'Nobby' asking repeatedly where the admin has go...

Re: The Very Official McDonalds (and other fast food outlets) Thread

I've always assumed the increase in the amount of these peel promotions has been testing the water around whether to continue the Monopoly game at all. If they're getting a reasonable enough response from running their own inhouse promotions without the name, continuing to pay a licence fee to Hasbr...

Re: The New Real Thing

I'm sure I remember Lemon Diet Coke being out a while back. Like most of the flavoured Diet Cokes, it worked really well then as it hid that very 'artificial' aftertaste plain Diet Coke has always had, but which Coke Zero somehow manages to avoid despite their ingredients being so similar. Now that ...

Re: Another High Street Rebrand

I'm getting distinct vibes of that time eons ago where Pizza Hut rebranded a small number of their stores to Pasta Hut. Which was definitely a permanent plan and not just someone in marketing had calculated the cost of replacing a few shop signs for a few months was a much cheaper way to get lots of...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I forgot that March had started, but for anyone who remembers it means we're now at the point three years ago Asa posted his closure announcement on TV Forum after 20 years in which he said: I don't often subscribe to the 'things were better in the old days' mantra but I do think there's been an inc...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

I'm more interested in NiKepp. Who are they? What does NiKepp mean? Is Ni short for Nigel? Until recently I used to think it was either short for Jonni, or alternatively just something that only knights would say. Then one day I received a shining beacon that changed my life in the form of a privat...

Re: With all the recent inflationary price rises, is there stuff you just won’t pay for now?

I would go into detail on some things, but most of the big changes I've made are just a carbon copy of WillPS above. From Netflix Turkish Delight, to Lloyds Disney+ to cheap off-season caravan parks. This is also where most of the impending cuts are likely to be. If Netflix close the Turkey loophole...

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

EasyInternetCafe - Now there's a blast from the past I'd managed to forget all about! Sudden flashbacks to those dark days when I still had to go outside to get online and mingle in a room with some of the strangest people imaginable, as having it in the home seemed like a luxury reserved for only t...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Welcome to Pres Cafe Anonymous. There's some milk and cookies on the side there if you need refreshments. And if you'd like to join the circle to share with us more about how it feels when you aren't able to post exactly as you like over there, I think there's still some room to pull up chairs betwe...

Re: Pres Cafe Watch News and Information Board

Ha, I went back pages and pages looking for that, and there it was only at the top of page 2 all along! I thought most of the arguments around DigitalSpy used to just be taken to TV Forum's websites forum instead, and then we'd all see how long it took for the padlock to come out due to people bicke...
