    This Forum's purpose- please do not misuse

    This "Users" Forum is now available for all LZ members to use.

    However, it will be more severly moderated than the others. It is only intended for users to post about (and to discuss) forum use and technical aspects of LandlordZONE as a whole.

    Any non-compliant material will be deleted or moved elsewhere without notice.

    Editor/Moderator-originated posts will be 'sticky' (given precedence on the newest page of the threads listing).

    Moderating posts in this Forum

    New threads by many inexperienced LandlordZONE members are often mistakenly posted in How to Use these Forums.

    To avoid the need for corrective posts asking that they be re-submitted to the correct Forum, a new procedure is now in operation. All posts here, no matter from whom, will be Moderated. They will not appear on screen unless and until approved by LZ. This procedure has been modelled on other larger websites (for example, those of the BBC) and will, it is hoped, ensure that new threads are correctly placed.

    This procedure applies only to How to Use these Forums.

        Please bring back the original, friendly little 'rolleyes' emoticon. In fact, I would like to suggest that LLZ bins the current set of feeble-looking emoticons which are virtually indistinguishable from one another. Other forums have much better ones - we need to compete!

            Anybody else having a problem with this site on Android?

            The standard browser will not connect to it, you get a "not secure site" message.

            I've put Firefox on the phone and that will connect.
            But I'm not keen on Firefox for android, it's nowhere near as good...

            I'm working on Firefox for android and have a few addons installed which has speeded things up.

            Might even make it the default if I can get it quicker than the standard browser.

            This one's much older than that, Android 4.1.2 on a Galaxy S3 mini.

            It just seems odd that the standard Android browser can't connect to here because its "not secure" when other browsers have no problem.
            I also have no problem connecting to other fora from the standard Android...

            Hi everyone,

            I have had a tenant in my property since novemeber 2013 on a assured shorthold tenanancy.

            She’s payed 1100 PCM since then with 1100 deposit. I served her a section 13 notice around 12 months ago as all the other apartments are rented for 1300 PCM. She flatly...

            That's a good offer by moderator2.

            Personally, where I moderate I also have email notification of moderated posts turned off.
            There are just too many, which would swamp your email inbox.

            I do check everyday there by logging into the moderator control panel and looking...

            If people see a message that their post has been sent for moderation then please send me a PM and I will then receive an email notification. I do not receive notifications of moderated posts automatically, and would not want to since many moderated posts really are spam. Remember that the action to...

            I've used and written systems to detect spam, it is possible to make systems user friendly without compromising the security model. Though no system is 100% secure there is a level of tolerance
