Hi all,

As last year, I've again registered for the Oxford ride.

How do you go about joining the forum team?

Hi Tommo903
God I hate their website.
I think I have found it the ride and the team appear to be different things so, you can register for a ride and join a different team. To join the forum team find the forum DGR page https://www.gentlemansride.com/team/bsaaa0forum and press the ‘join our team’ button.
I then checked on the dashboard page that the ride and the team looked OK.

I think I might have joined the team but I'm not quite sure.

I also think we pretty comprehensively disliked the web site on previous years, but given that it was all for charity we would forgive them using students to put it together.

G'day fellas.
I still only see 4 of us. It took me a few goes to get into the team. Keep trying till you see your name on the team page.
I'd imagine they use a web hosting company for the site. Like forum sites there's some brilliant (like this one) and others you give up on due to difficult navigation. I persevere only because of the Cause. My nephew committed suicide at the age of 26.
Cheers

Hi Musky, when I tried to register with the forum it wanted me to register again (I have already retested with Busselton) is that what you did?
Cheers

To join the ride... hit "Menu" at the upper left. Search for "forum" ride team. Once found, click "Join Now".

Just realized that "upper left" for Menu is on the mobile device page.  On a PC (can't speak for Apple), just hit the magnifying glass at the top of the page and search "Forum".

Bob,

Jammed up for the next hour or so, but some time after that I could create a screen shot video of all the moves.

ALL HAIL THE PERSEVERANT!  *respect* *smile*
