It would be good but would come at cost and effort.  Too hard to compete with Facebook groups as well.  So unless we are all willing to chip in some funds I can't see it happening.

We have recently tested Aussie Lapidary Forum on the latest version of the software, looks promising. An advantage of upgrading the software ALF runs on is that we should also be able to employ a site Theme, if we wish, that is responsive, another word for mobile-friendly. Whilst not an App per se, it would enable easier interaction with the forum via hand-held devices.

There's not enough traffic on the forum to warrant such apps. I've seen the forum go for 3-4 days without a single post.

No need to worry Pete, nothing major will be changing but we are working on/testing updates to try and fix a few important issues.
