Many will know UKSB was locked down for 24hrs yesterday.
in order for me to do this i had to change many different access permissions in over 40 forums, one forum at a time…
Re-activating was the same process…
If anyone finds they don’t have access to areas they had prior to yesterday, or simply think something is missing. then please reply here telling me where/what? I will, then check and alter to suit.
and please… if you don’t have a level of membership and you are trying to access a members only area. DO NOT reply. 🙄
thank you in advance for any feedback…

I applaud you Rob for closing the boards yesterday…a very fitting tribute for one of our missing members. :clap3:

Echoed. My thoughts were with everyone yesterday.

I agree totally. Nice one Rob!

Weirdest thing is that I woke up at 3.30am looked at the clock and thought ‘Johns probably being buried now’. A sobering moment at that hour. I never usually wake up in the early hours, must have been my sub conscience giving me a prod.

Likewise, well done Rob.
Our thoughts were with the family and friends yesterday.

yes it was a very fitting tribute…it was a day of silence.

I sat up in bed about 5:45 yesterday am and was just saying to the mrs how nice a touch it would be if we all had a day of respect, I was really chuffed to see the forum closed altogether.
I was about 40 miles away all day yesterday but, right next door to a pub so at lunchtime i popped in for a quick half, which i duly raised to John. just as i was finishing i received a call from a fishing mate in devon, a good friend from swansea who we were due to meet up with in a few weeks, had had a fatal heart attack that morning. He was equally as prominent on the fishing forum as JC is here, tireless dedication to raising money and awareness for the rnli following the death of his son in a boating accident 5yrs ago. so, i duly ordered another half, for me this time as Steve had been tee total for a year following drinking probs after his sons death.
it’s always those who seem to make a difference who are taken without warning. maybe that’s the reward?

Nice touch Rob, Well done..
I raised a glass to the great man last night and im sure he`s looking down on us with a smile on his face…

That was a very fine gesture Rob.
A fitting tribute to John who is clearly well admired and respected. I’m sure many were thinking about John yesterday afternoon when the funeral was being conducted.

The forum lock down was a very fitting mark of respect for a man who made this forum what it is and was without question the voice of wisdom and reason.
But knowing JC as much as I did as a friend, I know he’d now be saying, ‘right, get on with it now’. So as a further mark of respect that’s exactly what we should all do. Keep this place a fun and informative place to be. After all if it wasn’t for here then I and many many others would never have had the pleasure of knowing Bikerjohn.

A fitting tribute as others have said

Lynne: Sorry, can’t reply to PMs at the moment. It was good to see you and Pete yesterday. What a beautiful spot to be laid to rest in, don’t you agree?
MemberMay 13, 2010 at 10:24 pm
under the tree perfect and the views across the country side.
although I think it may be a bit quiet for John
MemberMay 14, 2010 at 12:14 am
A very sad day for all. And yes Lynn the place where John was laid to rest was beautiful and perfect for a man with so much respect. It was nice to see Martin, Andy, Nicola yourself and Peter there. I wasn’t surprised at the large turnout and the sound of the motorbikes was a brilliant tribute to a well respected man. Rest in peace John. 😉

You are quit correct. He would be back on track and moving on if it was a friend of his. As hard as it has been, we are all finding strength by moving on together as a team.
Wednesday was a brilliant day which sounds strange to say for a funeral but John would have loved it all. Many friends and family present and the cavalcade of bikes would have brought a tear to his eye. To Peter, Lynn, Nic, Martin, Andy, Dewi and Karl and his wife, many thanks for coming. It was appreciated by all.
Thanks to Rob for the most generous gesture by closing the boards as a mark of respect.
Thaanks again to all.
