I've been away for 3 months, only popping in to use the prediction game. I've noticed a drop off in posts and one or two mentioning that the site is losing patrons.

Just wondered why?

Gone elsewhere

Quicker, slicker, not plagued with ads. This site got ridiculously anti-user a few weeks ago and people voted with their feet( or fingers)
This fucking site won’t allow you to enter new site name. What a bunch of wankers.

To be truthful it is not a new site but a different site and not as good. I have been a member on there since the early 2000's and after lots of problems with the mods at the time transferred to this site which I consider a better site for football discussion. It is a pity a lot of good posters and some idiots have left . But these are mainly from the Non league section which I used to read a lot but must admit in recent times there has been quite a lot of "willy waving " going on with the big NL teams supporters. So most won't be missed.And I see it is still going on.

Certainly this site was/is better for talking about the lowers leagues - much busier .

It's killed this section off successfully but it's a pale imitation from what I've seen. I predicted ultimately there would be very few winners for this section as they've isolated themselves from busy L2/L1 sections on here. There were posters from L1 and L2 who enjoyed coming down to here to get involved. That's gone and the last time I looked over there they were just trying to force it and make it a carbon copy of what is/was here.

Gone to another forum, like this place but much better, without ads and mods/owners who care about the place.

This forum is now just a lge 2 forum, as no one posts in any other part of it.

Hi all,

I am discussing the issues raised with the wider team and will communicate any decisions/possible changes.

Please do not use other threads in this section to discuss this, to keep the individual threads relevant to the thread subjects. These will be moved/removed.

Feel like it's difficult to find the right place.

The forum is absolutely dog shit and has been for years. Too many decent posters left. The general chat sections are dead. No real point posting on here.

League One and Two are strong .

Basically the opposite of the other forum where PL and Championship plus general forums are busier .

The general partizan nature of many forums are not attractive, it is too easy for established members to be aggressive towards newer members and thus making them unwelcome. Non members see this and it doesn't make an attractive proposition for them. If you have a culture then it should be open for all not the few. I have been on a few of these sports forums and my experience has not been nice. Yes, I was on big footy and someone DM'ed me saying he wanted to gang rape me with his friends. I reported if but the mods stated he 'was only having a laugh' for real!

I'm guessing if I say too much it will upset the bedwetters but if you want an opinion then take it and somewhere along the line we can make this a great forum for the many not just for the few.
