    The migration to the new home of the Fan Forum and Picture Gallery is now complete! You can login using your existing Username and Password. If you've forgotten either of them or both, simply click the Lost Password link in the login box.


    There are lots of bells and whistles which you will come across as you begin to use the new functionality! A couple of items of interest are worth mentioning though.


    Copying and pasting YouTube, Vimeo or Daily Motion videos is now as simple as pasting the video link into your threads. So for example:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6kQDwO-GM4 or https://youtu.be/C6kQDwO-GM4 is all you now need do to post a YouTube video. You can even Preview your post before Submitting it! You can also paste Instagram photo links and Twitter tweet links and have them display seamlessly within your posts.


    Along with the new forum's modern looking Smilies, we have brought across our popularly requested ones for you to continue to enjoy. You can also now post .mp4 video files into the Picture Gallery along with video links from YouTube, Vimeo and Daily Motion, similar to how you paste them into forum threads.


    There are file size restrictions in place for photos and videos, but they should be more than adequate for your needs and should you ever run up against them, you can always ask for more space! You can view the limits when you go to upload either photos or videos.


    Google Maps is also integrated into the new forum. This allows you to paste location maps into your threads and probably more relevant, is you can now specify the location of where your pictures were taken when uploading them to the Picture Gallery. You can also create Albums for your pictures. For example, if you have a bunch of photos taken at a gig, put them into an album labeled with the gig venue and date, so everyone can easily find them.


    Private Messages (PM's) are now called Conversations - these are private communications between you and your recipient(s).


    Just as a reminder, you are unable to create threads in the News & Updates and Tour Dates & Appearances forums - but you are able to reply to any of the posts within them. Also, the Announcements forum is read only - you are only able to view the threads.


    So enjoy the new Fan Forum and Picture Gallery and should you run into an issue just start a Conversation :)


    Have fun :thumbup:

    Beginning on Saturday, July 24th, 2021 the Fan Forum and Picture Gallery will begin to migrate to a new platform. We will be closing down access to the current forum on that date. Since it's been over 12 years since our previous major overhaul, we are going to take time to ensure things are migrated as smoothly as possible!

    The Fan Forum and Picture Gallery will be inaccessible for a number of days during the migration process. When things are ready, it will look very different to you, but at the same time, feel very familiar - more of a modern twist and certainly more mobile friendly!

    In addition, we will also be updating the entire website to support SSL throughout - this provides for an extra level of security for both you and us.

    The good news is your Username and Password will not change - so when prompted to Login to the new forum, you can use your current credentials.

    Feel free to send an email with any questions, otherwise see you on the other side!

    RIP Sheila Hughes ~ condolences to Glenn and Gabi and the rest of the Hughes family... you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    RIP MOM Sheila passed away 7.15 UK

    RIP William Hughes ~ condolences to Glenn and his Mum, Gabi and the rest of the Hughes family... you are in our thoughts and prayers.

    [video=Message from Glenn Hughes - June 2009]93[/media]

    Only when a Glenn Hughes concert/appearance is officially announced on www.glennhughes.com, can you take it as being 100% confirmed.

    Some venues recently have been announcing dates that were/are just tentative/pencilled-in/speculative dates. If the venues choose to announce the date, advertise it or - worse still - put it on sale BEFORE it is announced on glennhughes.com, then please be aware that they are doing so without approval, authorisation or confirmation. This doesn't mean that the date won't happen; it's just that until you see it posted here, then it is not absolutely confirmed and could be liable to change.

    Always check the GH official website, specifically; the Tour page, Fan Forum and Newsfeed. You will also find 100% confirmed dates on the ever-growing list of external and officially sanctioned networking sites. So, if you are unsure about any Glenn dates you may have heard about or seen on a venue/festival website, those pages and glennhughes.com are the places to go get things confirmed!

    Separately.....a European tour, including UK dates, is being planned for Sept/Oct 09 and when the tour is organised and confirmed, we will have the details on the official website(s).

    I missed the part about no politics! (though it's probably here somewhere!)


    Sorry, my bad. I didn't realize.

    No worries guys, it was purely a reminder of the rules here, which you agreed to, upon your Registration. You can also refer to them in the FAQ which is available at anytime, in the navigation bar at the top of each page here on the Fan Forum.

    Coinciding with our Christmas theme here on the Fan Forum, Glenn has just made available a specially recorded Christmas message for us all. Be sure and checkout the front page of the web site to watch it now :cool: :singer: :thumbup:



    While we're both here, we want to wish you all a very Happy and Merry Christmas everyone. We hope you're enjoying the new site since we took over the reins, here's to many more years, eh! Guess what!! It's going to be 10 years old next year, just a bit younger than our original baby, GHPG.net!

    How time flies :eek:

    Hope to see some of you next year as the F U N K continues :claphands

    Cheers,
    David & Shirean

    We'll let the majority rule on this topic, if we see others who agree it is not appropriate for the Fan Forum, we'll go ahead and close this thread out.

    For the record, our thoughts are mirrored by what both Iain and Todd mentioned earlier.

    Cheers,
    David & Shirean

    What planet are you from ???



    FCinella, I am from Planet Earth. I presume you are, too. And if you meant your question to be a disrespectful one, then I immediately love and forgive you.


    OK folks - let's all calm down and let each to their own - we're all here because of GLENN and his music - so that, we can all agree upon.

    Respect to all please, thanks :)

    David & Shirean
