Not sure when you were last here Wavell ave.  But the forum was dominated by a small group who took over
most posts and either turned it into something personnel or a debate about brexit.   Which was compounded
by there being no moderator.  All of which resulted in most of the decent regular posters  leaving.  On a positive
admin is back some of those responsible have been barred.  However I fear too much damage has been done
I hope I am wrong and the forum recovers.

There is more activity, it's basically replica topics taken from here yet discussed amongst 6 tryhard users in their very own echo chamber.
It's taken over a month to gain an extra 10 signed up members and, as I warned on my other thread over on General Chat, the whole site has gone kind of stale.

As I've stated, again and again, the traditional "forum" is dead, you can try and make a success of a spin off, but even stealing users from here will not keep it alive.

If people are happy on the clicky thingy then good luck to them all, but I cant see the point of el caballo's post, seems to be trying to cause a stir as far as i can see.

I'm quite liking it on here at the moment. Nice calm atmosphere, civil discussion, no finger pointing.

It's no good keep harping on about the recent problems, get over it... move on.

If people have dispersed to another site then others in time will take their place. That's how it's always been.

Those that were barred need barring again.  It was pleasant on here while they were gone.  I like the other forum - it is pleasant unlike this one.  This one used to be pleasant.  It needs several active Moderators.

Some of us prefer the Original. You prefer a copy, so just accept it and move on. Your contribution here seems pointless.

There was nothing wrong with this forum prior to maybe 6 months ago. It has always provided good communication, info & help. Hopefully we can now get back to that. I don’t want to see this forum wither any more than a lot of other people. There will always be differences of opinion & that in itself is good, except when multiple threads keep getting highjacked & end up as mindless drivel. Let’s all pull together & try to get back to where we were

If my memory serves me correctly another contributor on this forum used a lot of similar animated posts.

Schoolboy would relate to the mentality of the two bellends who ruined this forum banter it certainly was not. I am afraid this forum will never recover, but admin must shoulder some responsibility for not acting quicker to stop it escalating despite being asked to by several contributors

Its because of people like you that no one bothers on here anymore,
Malabu, it's a shame that your replies are always hostile

Never liked FB, nor used it, signed up to Twitter in 2009, before Brown got kicked out of No10, but used it only twice to tweet to Osborne to put personal allowance to £12k p.a.

Looks like George heard me, bless his little socks!
