    I am assuming James that it was your intention to avoid some of the more extreme posts and personal insults that were all too evident on the previous board. In which case so far so good! OK not as much content (yet) and quite often several days pass before anyone posts anything new, no doubt things will build as posters feel more confident that a counter view or opinion is not going to result in them being vilified!

    Got to say gaining access in the early days was a bit of a nightmare, with some fun and games with passwords, but that seems to have settled down now and I am sure more people will sign up and post!

    So thanks for tidying things up and getting back to Widnes Vikings stuff!

    Agree Wirral!

    As regards logging in, I’ve said many times, I must be the least tech-savy person on the planet, but with (a lot) help from James, I’m back on!

    I feel the same as you too about hoping that those who were posting the personal insults, and seemed to revel in it (the very few know who they are) have learned their lessons, and this board is lively, informative, amusing, but 101% free of the agro that (more than) occasionally s(p)oiled the previous one!

    Spelly.

    I don’t want a board where everyone agrees with each other, healthy debate is good and others can see something you miss and are able to enlighten you too this. However personal insults to board members and disgraceful comments about some players and staff  is I am now hoping a thing of the past.

    I’d agree that it’s nice not seeing all the insults and the fact that some people seemed to dominate the old message board and have a go at anyone who disagreed with them. It’s not healthy and, I am sure, stopped a lot of people posting or even coming online as it was getting all too much. That was certainly the case for me.
    Hopefully we can have healthy debate without the personal insults and enjoy talking about the team we all love.

    I agree with the above, but one thing I’ve noticed, and I don’t think it’s just me, that unless you log on you can only see the posts up to when you last logged off. And other people who haven’t joined the forum have told me they can’t get on the board just to see the posts.

    i posted as much in the feedback/help section, unless you log in theres no update and even then the main forums screen doesnt reflect the updated posts within that forum

     

    im sure it will be sorted soon but it is a teeny bit annoying

    Yeah I noticed that too. Very frustrating.

    It looks likes there are no new posts or replies to posts until you log in.

    Regards

    agree there, you need a sensible debate, but as others have pointed out we do not need the vitriolic comments and I told you so content

    onwards and upwards

    Apart from the famous three, there does seem to be a lot of people missing from this new message board, and very few posts compared to the last one. Anyone got any idea why? I thought once the season started it would pick up again, but it hasn’t done yet.

    I think a lot of the old crew that stopped commenting because of the problems with a few don’t know its changed. I have enjoyed the new site and still no problems to date

    I think the issue is those of us who know anything about the game have stopped posting.

    Turns out it wasn’t us stopping people posting, more the tedious nausea inducing backing of criminals and poor players from the “true” supporters.

     

    Enjoy, looks like this forum is essentially finished 🙂
