original.pngHi guys,


Welcome to the first edition of the revamped 'The Gaff'. A community newsletter we used to have on the blog, which unfortunately closed due to the members invovled leaving or lives getting busy (Hope you're well whereever you are!)


As Neil (Oldyorkie) puts it, "The people that were involved with it can take pride in the knowledge that something they introduced has risen from the flames and become part of the new look forums. :smileyhappy:"


I've been doing some work on our Contribute Board today, and found that Friday's are our busiest days, with the weekend seeing more action than the week days. So the Gaff will be posted by a yet undecided member on a Friday to coincide with 'The Week that Was' on the blog.




  • Daily Member Debate - Discussing ways to improve the quality of help on our Help Board, started by the lovely Pockets What do you think?
  • Members Weekly Promoted Thread: Welcome to the MADhouse, - a brilliant discussion on all things giffgaff and a place to test out views first or brainstorm for ideas and Contribute focused threads.
  • Posted by Zobia: Be apart of our new blogging series based on you. - We still need feedback and volunteers for this to get started.



  • A spelling mistake was flagged up by Endo55 on the Port Your Number Page - this has now been raised and will be fixed in the next release.
  • Nellisere has flagged a concern about Image Compression - add your thoughts here, and it's been raised within our team for an official response.


New Members Spotted Today:

  • geekcubed (as well as having a brilliant username) - joined us about a month ago, made an outstandingly amazing post in the daily debate - view it here.
  • docwho49 - made their first post in Contribute on Zobia's Blogging Thread - it's already got two Kudos, great way to join the Contribute board!

Welcome guys, put your feet up, stay a while - you r0ck Heart


Have a nice week guys.

Yes but many members are not tech at all and need it all nice and simple and straightforward ( that's the hard part )

Like the mythical Phoenix arising from the ashes signifying a new birth.   The colour associated with the Phoenix was classical purple so perhaps the newsletter can reflect this in terms of paper colour or accessories in order give due reverence to the occasion.       Smiley Happy
