Do those guys who left here realise it’s back up and running?

I should imagine the Stockport County fans will be back next season to post in the 4th Division section. Looking at that other forum Ican't understand why they left this one ?

do people only look at their own league forum or cast a butchers hook at any interesting posts across the board and contribute accordingly ?

Looking at the other forum it’s very dead, shame they jumped ship.

There's a post on the L1/2 Forum here almost every day. On the other board you can go a week sometimes.

Outside the Premier League Forum(Mainly Liverpool Fans), the Off Topic Section was the most active and that seems to have a died a death until the last few weeks when some regular posters have come back.

One of the main complaints was the number of adverts, well a certain club forum is riddled with them.

Pretty much just Premier league and Championship really with the odd core posters elsewhere.

Opposite to how here was really .

If there’s something that piques my interest I would look at it for definite.

That other forum is really just a Premier and Championship forum and frankly not got the inclination to be patronised by a supporter of one of them. The L2 section is nothing more than a prediction league.

I’d say 90% of those who have moved across are sick of the forum being run like a cash cow. The NL section there is far busier now and easily replicates how this one was. Can’t speak for the other forums across there but why would you now post here if everyone else is across there?

Different owners now on this site.

No point in posting there in any of the L1 or 2 forums.

Same could be said of this forum, only the L1 and L2 forums are keeping it alive. If all you lot moved across then the forum as a whole would be way more active.

Don’t try to confuse me with logic for heavens sake.

Unacceptable.

This site kept going down for short spells so a load kicked up a bit of a fuss and started/joined what they thought was some kind of revolution. I've not seen the other forum they migrated to for a few weeks but whenever I looked it was like a cheap imitation of what here was like. Dried up old shite and as you say they've cut themselves off from interacting with L1/L2 fans which was a good link in this community in the case of promotions/relegation, player transfers, managerial appointments, general opinons etc. It's a shame but they made their choice.

If Wrexham and to probably a lesser extent ourselves go up the place will be absolutely dead from what I recall. Notts County had a few good lads. Chesterfield fans get quite busy if they start winning again. You've always got some decent posters from some of the so called smaller clubs like Wealdstone, Grimsby, Yeovil etc but they're not enough to keep it vibrant like it was on here.

Nothing much seems to happen on the Nat North Forum on the other site. I joined, but don't bother with it anymore. That said, the traffic on this site certainly seems much less, and with the exception of losing the nob from Halifax, it seems to have all been rather counterproductive. I've never had a problem with this site, advertising etc - but I use my desktop not a mobile, so maybe it's worse there?

Other site is far busier on every forum other than L1/L2 than here. Its a simple choice unless you are in one of those two leagues. Plus it doesn't go down every other month with no explanation.

I think the move was led by the BELT fans who saw the move as the promotion they couldn't get on the pitch.
I dip & in out of here, but of course we've been in a league of our own this season :)


All that was needed was a banner saying 'this forum is down for maintenance' when it was offline, people would have lived with that even though it seemed to happed very other week

So let me get this straight:

This forum used to go down every month (which is true)

It ends up under new ownership, some members take umbrage and move to a different forum, calling this place a "cash cow"

This forum no longer goes down

Petty battles start over which forum is better

It all seems a bit pathetic to me. As a fan of a NLN club, give me a good reason to move over. The current NLN thread on there has about 7 fans of NLN clubs on there, and nothing of interest.

This site hasn’t gone down for a while now and when the the new admin were given feedback regards the adverts they’ve removed them completely. There is absolutely no reason to move from here whatsoever.

Except everybody already moved before that, now there is no reason to come back as everyone from non league is already over there. I personally prefer it because all the other general forums, sport, off topic etc. are very busy, its like the old TFF. Here nothing is posted except in lge 1/2, unless you are fan of a club in those divisions or one of the few NLN fans and have your one thread, there is no reason to post on here.

Be interesting to see how long the new ownership keep it without ads etc. especially if it continues to be a ghost town everywhere except those two forums. Already see from the increased twitter activity they are trying to advertise the place, if it doesn't increase traffic, wonder what they do.

I still keep an eye on this forum, but there isnt much activity. Heard that this place had new owners, but as Gladders says, a lot of the off topic forums are a lot more active than on here.

also as I type, there are presently 3 people in the Conference sub-forum

Pretty much this, pop over occasionally but it's still quiet. Hadn't clocked the adverts had gone until now though

It’s far easier to lose custom than build it up.

The other place has 11 threads with new posts today compared to two here (three now with this one). I look for activity first in a forum.

It's busier than here obviously but not as busy as this forum was before they migrated and they've cut themselves off from L1/L2. Banter's gone to shit aswell.

If ourselves and Wrexham go up, the place will be as dead as a doornail. I just hope that Hatter86 guy doesn't come over and doesn't know about this place. What a pain in the arse he looks and I only glance occassionaly.

I'm glad he's back -- Makes a lot of sensible pots/comments. Think he was the first poster to notice the upturn of our league form this season as well.
