I reckon it would be a good idea to have some programme reminders scrolling across the top of the page say, 10 minutes before TG, 5th Gear etc starts. Graham said he can do it but wants to know if we all want it or not??

Why not just press the series link key on your Sky+ remote? then you never have to be reminded, can watch when you want, and fast forward the adverts!:huh: :huh: :huh:

Not all of us are posh enough to have Sky+.



Mine's excellent though.

I concede that,but if you were a wealthy Midlands based transport mogul, I think you'd probably stretch to the 49 it costs!:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Set a reminder on your own computer or mobile.

I think it is easy to remember a programme that is on at the same time each week.

A more appropriate one would be a reminder telling users they have been online too long and that it is time to do some work/get back to the other half.

p.s. Christmas day is on the 25th December.

:p

Not laughing at Hazy's mogul status, the phrase just raised a smile

I may be able to add a setting in the user options control panel to disable all such banners, should the majority vote that they want them.
Don't hold me to this though because it would be serious head scratching time to link it all together, but I'll do it if I can!

I'm in favour, though it will make us look very parochial.

My vote is in.

Good idea but is it feasible?

It can be done but I'm not sure there's a way of restricting it to UK users. Would look a bit silly if somebody logs in from Australia and there's a banner telling him that Top Gear is on in 5 minutes

I can query if a user's time zone is set to GMT but that's no cast iron guarantee

There isn't a UK section, you're thinking of an inferior site, we are the global village personified (well computerified actually):smile: :smile: :smile:

I think we should avoid too many bells and whistles and I agree with whoever posted earlier - use a TV guide. And if you miss top gear, drop me a PM and I'll download it for you or tell you how to get hold of it.

I'd go with the yes votes if it would be possible to have the option of turning it off or minimising.
