That is a manual operation and I think that we forgot because it was 
part of user testing.
Sorry, sorry, please forgive us. ;-)

Too simple for me. ;-)

Thomas and I will talk this over. In truth we don't want to ask the 
developer for too much as we are lucky when we gets his attention.

Hmm! that is a good idea. In the same vein,  I would like to change the 
voting page as well so that we can vote for everything at once instead 
of one at a time.

But as been mentioned before. The site is almost a charity case. When 
Steve Paget started TC-RTC as a temporary replacement for the IRTC he 
contacted a local web developer to set it up. When Steve died Thomas and 
I took over the running of the site. The cost is a peppercorn rent which 
means that I am wary of asking too much from the developer as he is 
often distant and does not reply to emails. Since we have his attention 
atm and I will certainly put this suggestion to him.
