I don’t know, you would think with all this self isolation, and nothing to do, there would be lots of people on the message board. I would have thought there would have been loads of replies to the You thread, giving their favourite players and matches.
I wonder if James can tell us how many people we have got registered on this new board compared to the odd one?
Unfortunately quite a few of the posters on the old board just wanted to insult or make fun of people they didn’t agree with them and have found that they can’t do that on the new board, so have stopped coming on.

But what is there to talk about? No players, performances, coaches or board members to slate (which let's face it comprises 90% of the content in normal times😆). I'm being forced into dire alternatives like talking to the wife and painting the shed.

Raking moss out of two lawns for me which really is dire!

I don't think the re-vamped board is as user friendly as the previous one. I personally don't like it, but still enrolled on it's inception.

I agree there’s not much to talk about at the moment, but even before the rugby stopped the amount of people posting on here was small compared to last season.

That is the top and bottom if it, there is little to discuss except maybe the twins exercise videos. The amount of people posting on here is similar to the last website except those that took over every thread are no longer with us. It will grow as people find that its no longer a problem to have different views to others or your not going to get insulted to like a player that others don't.

There is nothing to talk about at the moment. Hopefully people obey the rules, so sooner we can get back to playing rugby.

I think the issue is that the new board may still have a few issues.  I tried to post in the off-topic area and it wouldn't let me do it.  I then was able to in the Widnes Vikings area but I think there are still a few glitches.

I also think the route you have to go to post an Avatar is a real faff.  I have done it but had to register to a site I wouldn't do otherwise to do it.

This message board has gone awol

New contributor to the board but long time visitor and while it may not be the snazzy looking forum I find it OK. What I do like is the lack of hysteria that was seen on the previous forum, all much better. Difficult to make many comments when total lack of rugby. Hope for better soon.

#stay safe
