Wouldn't creating something new be like exchanging them for a pair of cold leather moccasins that rub your heels? :?

Love the imagery! :D

I'm still ambivalent about changes. Change for its own sake is wrong IMO, but change to bring about an improvement (or even an intended improvement) is a good idea.

Let's face it - this forum is pretty stagnant. Comfortable - definitely, but only comfortable for a small active membership. We need new members, and we need more of them to join in the banter.

The question is, how do we accomplish that? Simply changing the colours and fonts is not going to bring us any nearer that goal. Integration with other social media may well be the way forward, but the concept makes me uncomfortable. I don't use Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any such media; and I have no intention of doing so. My hope is that we can reap the benefits of closer links with these formats without losing the identity of this forum, or forcing people (like myself) to use formats with which we are uncomfortable.

But I trust John (and Fish) to come up with something that ticks all the boxes - even if it does take a while!! :twisted:

Knowing your dress sense maybe you'd like a more sexy forum in high heels :lol:

What's stopping them? :? - I'd welcome anyone joining in. - Unfortunately, as has been stated every few months when this subject is brought up, most people use Facebook and Twitter for banter nowadays and Forums have become old-hat. - Sad but true. :(

It s hard to have banter on FB and Twitter unless you want the whole world to know what you think.

This is just a small community of Fish fans where there is a core group which changes occasionally and other people drop in and out.

I'd prefer that there was a bit more discussion than just the games, weather and what we are eating ;) - however when we are dipping in and out during the day sometimes that is all we can manage and at least it shows that we are connected.
