Congratulations: New Member(s) of the Month

AUGUST NEW MEMBERS OF THE MONTH!

How has another month flown by? We’ve had a huge influx of new members in August, so competition has been fierce, but our clever bot has chosen the two lucky recipients of the New User of the Month badge. They are…

@Mike a brand new member from Jersey who asked for recommendations for his first order! This is EXACTLY the kind of thing we built The Community for so we’re chuffed to see so many fellow members giving suggestions. :smiley:

and

@Alexander_Lomas, who posted a popular entry into our 200-word writing competition which got a lot of ‘likes’ (it was another favourite with the judges, too!)

Welcome to ALL our new members this month - don’t be shy, introduce yourselves and say hi! :wave:

OCTOBER NEW MEMBERS OF THE MONTH

Our clever Community bot :robot: has picked out two more new joiners to win our prized ‘New User of the Month’ badge.

So a big congrats to October’s winners, who are:

@JD1892, who got stuck straight in and joined us for the Fine Wine Trade Secrets virtual tasting, gave some great skiing advice, among various other lovely chats. Great to see you posting so regularly!

and

@AWomanwithaCellar, (fab username!!), who we’ve enjoyed getting to know in the Introductions thread and who - funnily enough - even joked about getting a badge! :laughing: Well now you’ve got one, and very well deserved it is too! Looking forward to you joining us at the November virtual tasting!

A warm welcome to ALL of our new members this month - if you haven’t already, why not ask a question or Introduce yourself? :smiley:

Sadly if you go on your order history page the cold reality is all too visible…fortunately my wife hasn’t found that one yet.

Ah yes, I’m very careful with the scrollbar on that page.

You mean you can’t get the whole year on one page? That is a worry…

I can, and plenty more besides - it’s just that I try to avoid looking at too many of those numbers in that middle column!

There’s a simple solution to this - just invest in a cheaper, lower resolution monitor. That way, less lines appear on the screen. It works for me…
