Still not working this evening, I did get the error message immediately instead of waiting around for it.
Bus driving since 1973. My advice, if you have a PSV licence, destroy it when you get to 65 or you'll be forever in demand.

There are at least two pepipoo members who are proactively attempting to deal with this problem.

There are known knowns which, had we known, we would never have wished to know. It is known that this also applies to the known unknowns. However, when one attends a hearing, Mr Rumsfeld's idea that there are also unknown unknowns fails to apply because, anyone who is in the know, knows that unknown unknowns are purely a deception otherwise known as an aleatory experience or also known as a lottery. I know that I know this to be a fact and, in this knowledge, I know that I am fully prepared to present my case but, paradoxically, in full knowledge that the unknown unknowns may well apply in view of some adjudicators' lack of knowing what they ought to know through no fault of their own.

do you mean the current issue or the ongoing failures?

Maybe too simplistic, but why not just merge Pepipoo into this site? Not necessarily 'technically' but move the membership and be done with?

There could be significant data protection issues with moving membership.

Not if done voluntarily by invitation there ain't? I'm not talking about a data merge, just an invite that there is a parallel universe that actually works!

I think that has already been done. lots of PPP members are already on here (we'll the ones that matter  ::) lol )
but there has been a warning posted by MJdev/Fredd/whoever it really is that anyone directly poaching contributors either in forum or by PM will be banned for life. not sure that will be relevant if PPP dies tho.

That threat won't trouble me of course!! I'm not sure about 'lots'? The Speeding section is barren here and blooming on PPP. This seems to be morphing into a parking forum primarily - hence my suggestion.

Hence "could" not "would". But if it were done by invitation for example a breach may already have been made if the data were passed on in order to make the invitations.

If those invites were made by the ppp owners I imagine there would be less risk

(From a personal perspective I don't think it should be a breach but that's hardly material).

Many key contributors were invited (because we were in touch off of the platform anyway) and when pepipoo members' user IDs were usurped by someone else, we moved the cybersquatter and gave the user ID to the person we knew to be the rightful owner of the username on pepipoo.

I don't see any need for anything more than that, this site has been up for around nine months and pretty much everyone who was on pepipoo and who wanted an account on here will have made an account by now.
I am not on the "motorists's side", nor am I on the "police/CPS/council's" side, I am simply in favour of the rule of law. Section 6 of the Interpretation Act 1978 applies to everything I post as it would apply to an Act of Parliament. I am a Conservative councillor, this means some people think I am "scum". I am not a lawyer.

Can you offer an opinion on the (very) marked absence of speeding-related matters on here? I've been ****-canned on PPP so seldom visit but they seem to predominate there only.

When they're posted here advice is promptly given, the key difference is that when pepipoo first came back online we made a concerted effort to get council OPs over to the new site.

Pleased to see PPP is back online this morning, it came back at about 11:10 if anyone's interested.

It came back somewhat earlier than 11:10 this morning I think...
It seems to be back up and running now.
