I hope I am not opening a can of worms here.... It would be good to hear what you think about the ish forum, blogs or main site. It there anything you want here that isn't, anything you would change, anything you love?? Any feedback really would be nice.

A great big thumbs up (well, two actually) from me, this is an amazing site packed with well informed and well writted information for the newbie and more experienced Isher alike.

The board is filled with people with experience of all kinds who are wonderful and friendly and share their experience with us newbies.

... just... brilliant... thankyou for all your time and work, it is really appreciated!

Ditto SPS!

After drastically cutting down my online time, Ishers is the only forum I visit now!

:thumbleft: :thumbright: You're doing brilliantly Andy - :cheers: The forum is lovely

Only problem I have is with the search, takes me to a google page not a list of threads
I have heard talk about blogs but it's deffo outside my understanding (as is downloading music and MP3/iPod)

I found the site by accident not so long ago this year - and I confess to enjoying the 'social' aspects of membership as much as the advice.
It has been reassuring to know that you are not alone with your 'wacky' ideas!
The members who post regularly are friendly, practical and come over as good people - in the best sense of the word.
It is a credit to the founders so long may it thrive. :sunny:

Ok the search is powered by google, click on all ISH search and it will bring you to page where you can search either the main site or the forum. There are google ads above the search results when you search, if you scroll down you will see the acutual instances of the word.

So for example I searched forgoats and got a few pages of results on the forum. There is also an option to search the main site or the forum if you look above the search box. Again a search for carrots just on the main site brings up pages of results.

Hope that explains things a little better for you.

The blogs are simply online diaries written by myself and Dave.


Good to hear that we are still getting it right though!

Fantastic , I love the site and the forum, The social side is fab as you say glad I'm not the only one with ish ideas.
Also the wealth of knowledge is amazing and I never cease to be amazed as to how much people put into their ishness thanks for keeping me going on the ish side of life probably would have given up a long time ago without having stumbled on the site.THANK YOU :cheers:

I love this place.

Having like-minded folk to turn to in times both of crisis and just as importantly triumph is so important.

Long may ISH remain.

you're doing great, the latest changes were an real improvement.
one addition I am still missing is a wwoof-ish section.
there have been a few people already asking/ willing to travel and work for bed and board and since we know each other a little bit on Ish, I thought it would make a nice addition......

Another fan here! I don't post that often, and am relatively new, but I do lurk a lot! And I love reading what other creative, self-sufficientish types have been doing. There's a lovely feel to the whole site, which is no doubt because it is visited by many lovely peeps, but it's very rare! Whatever you're doing, keep on doing it... :salute:

Dear Fee. Fairy,

I totally agree with you about the site, but -shoot me down in flames if I'm wrong - your opinion of the admin could be construed as tending somewhat to a slighly biased view?

Love and Peace
Jim
