Apologies for not being about much over the last couple of weeks. Have my hands full at work ATM and free time is limited.

For the foreseeable future debates about the flatness of the earth (I can't believe I'm typing this) should take place in another thread.

I don't like banning people but the behavior of certain individuals really is cutting down my options. It might be best if one of the regular contributors puts his hand up to run it as a moderator. Although I'm always open to fresh ideas.

Nicely done chief, it's a thread I like, to learn from people who know about these things, despite the bloody clouds every time something happens.

Probably the best option. Barring any catastrophes I'll sort it out this evening and PM you.

If not it'll be done in the next day or two.

Ta muchly.

How about giving 'Wanderer' a nudge to start doing some moderating? They're active enough in that weird game thread.

A great resource for anyone interested in the night sky is a free download fully-working planetarium program, Stellarium, which you can download here:
http://www.stellarium.org/en_GB/

(the download links for various different OS are the icons along the top)

You can set it up whichever way you want, but I would recommend downloading all the star databases -the more you download, the more there is to see when you zoom in.

Here's a screen grab of the view south tonight

Puts hand up and admits to being a computer thicky.

Which should I download for use on an Android tablet?

Since you want to criticise publicly, I will respond publicly.

Moderating - Not all moderating is obvious to all posters but you would only need to have read the Terrorism or Night Sky threads to see evidence of moderating.

Game threads - There were game threads in the Sin Bin long before you surfaced and there may well be after you have disappeared. If they don't appeal to you that's fine but equally not all threads need to be about debate.

This is your third dig, the previous two were simply removed. Not sure why you feel the need to have a pop but I suggest that if you don't like or approve of the game thread then you simply ignore it.

Now, if you want to contribute re Astronomy, then you'd be on the right thread ...
