    On desktop I have 20 pages under Recent Topics, the oldest being posted 12 days ago, presumably the first post to the Forum by Rhys. Do you get less Recent Topics on other devices?

    I see 20 pages, but I think the point that @NorthernLass was getting at is that anything after the first page of recent topics is really buried.

    My proposal is doubling the number of recent topics per page so that users don’t have to click through as many pages to get ‘caught up’. I know I’m much less likely to look at anything on pages 2+.

    It seems all cards images are just a generic creation card now.

    The application page has been removed entirely too.

    Maybe IHG don’t want to be associated with a company with such poor antics?

    The optimistic part of my brain wants to believe this IHG are going to switch to a different provider for their credit card.

    The realistic side of my brain reckons it’s just Creation being incompetent.

    The pessimistic side of my brain fears that Creation are giving up and nobody will want to step in and take over the card at all.

    Oh what a shame! I have a stay booked from Dec 31st – Jan 2nd so will just miss out. 😞

    Had an interesting experience with a restaurant on the shop small map the other day. Went to pay and tapped my amex card to the machine. Transaction went through fine and receipt printed. It was only then did the restaurant owner realise I’d paid with an amex. He said something along the lines of “we don’t usually accept amex because they charge fees which are something like 10x more than visa/mastercard.

    Argh, that would have infuriated me. I don’t know what the business model is like these days. I reckon a lot of businesses are only legacy contracts and perhaps do still have really poor rates for card acceptance.

    I received the points separately to the 3x points. Not the most intuitive way of displaying this but it did come through a few days later.

    in reply to: Discount for multiple rooms at IHG hotels?
    dst87

    This is an opinion not based on fact however it would be good to ask just for peace of mind if nothing else. In the past asking has worked for me in Las Vegas however it’s down to how many rooms are empty in the hotel at the time. They all have to reach targets.

    That’s a fair point, thanks! Doesn’t hurt to drop them a message and see what they can do. 🙂

    in reply to: Email address
    dst87

    Email addresses aren’t case sensitive (neither are URLs for that matter).

    It would be nice UX / usability feature to accept mixed-case email addressed and normalise them to lowercase during sign-up and sign-in.

    I don’t think users should have to know that email addresses are case insensitive to sign-up for an account, and for those who don’t know it could easily result in them abandoning the sign-up attempt.

    Wonderful! Someone has managed to include some sort of character that changes the writing direction of the remainder of the thread. 😆

    Maybe this will fix it: ‪

    Or this: ⁦

    Also, IHG have an unlabeled version of Open Table, never used it but I think it qualifies

    I have used this. Points post relatively quickly after meal, and do count for status.

    Glad to see nested replied removed. As Rui said, it just brought back the same issue finding recent replies to a particular post as we had in the comments on the main site. Quoting makes more sense in the context of a forum.

    I haven’t received any shop small notifications, but have had one credit.

    The other place didn’t credit automatically. Apparently they’ve switched to using a payment aggregator. CS said they’ll credit it if the place is on the map, but they really need to find another way to track these (or remove them from the list if ineligible) as it would take someone with fairly specific knowledge to identify what type of payment system a retailer is using.

    Some really basic stuff missing.

    You can edit your messages – there should be an edit button in the top right of the message card.

    Here’s a screenshot showing the location of said buttons.

    Actually it does work – you’ll just need to force clear the cache for the website. If you’re on iOS, go to Settings > Safari > Advanced > Website Data > swipe left on the headforpoints.com row and tap “Delete”.

    Argh, I did that earlier and it didn’t work. Now, naturally, it’s working fine. 😒

    Thanks! 👀 Nothing to see here.

    You can top up Monzo at a Paypoint with a credit card – the fee is low enough to make it worthwhile.

    I thought Monzo topups at Paypoint were only for cash deposits?

    Rhys: I opened the forum on mobile this morning for the first time, and it appears the changes you made haven’t been applied to the mobile stylesheet, which still has the same white background etc.

    Fixed now!

    Looks great, thanks Rhys!

    Quotes are not clear as to what part of the text is being quoted

    Me and a few others mentioned this in the Welcome thread. Hopefully a fairly simple fix once they have a chance.

    Edit: Ah yes, I see that’s working now! 🎉

    Actually, it looks like this is still problematic for nested quotes like in this message, or this screenshot from the welcome thread:

    I mean, it’s only a matter of time, right?
