It has come to our attention that some users may have been "banned" when they tried to change their passwords after the site was hacked due to a glitch in the old vBulletin software. This would have occurred around the end of February and does not apply after the site was converted to Xenforo.

How long did you stay at your destination and how much would parking have cost for that time?It cost me €2.20 to travel 3 miles on a Dublin Bus last Saturday.
