Hi Dave, there used to be a feature whereby a poster could quote law (as opposed to a common or garden variety quote). Is this still available?
Cheers.

Hi @Dickie E ,

I think it is still there, i have to add them in to the system. Ill look at them and make sure they are all up to date, dont wanna be quoting any of them out of days laws, like" the ball must be fed straight into the scrum"!!! ?

Can you remember how this was invoked on the old system?

Dave it didn't quote law, you had to paste in the law, but it produced a different style of quote, so it looked different from a normal quote

this is back up now, next to the quote button. I may change the image, but at present its the rugbyrefs.com logo.

Thanks for the suggestion @Dickie E , please keep them coming.

This is not a law!

My profile identifies me as a rugby club member instead of as a referee. How do I change that? I can't access the referee only forums identified in no.43 above

And as if by magic, you are now a referee. ? you just missed the check when you joined, sure there are others I’ll get around to changing too

would other groups like images, such as your club image, under there name, as the refs do?

I can add these, it will take a while, but im willing to do it if users want it?

We seem to nearly all be down as ‘referees’. Are we able to change our descriptors to something a bit more accurate like we were in the previous forum? I.E. Advisor/Observer etc.

That’s changed now for you, but the descriptions aren’t set right, so I’ll get them edited.

Thanks Dave. I can see a few comments being made about me being a ‘rugby expert’! :)
