BFUSA you have my 100% support and I'm happy to chip in a few $$$ also.

The site is a mess and I can envisage an Egypt-style celebration at Moorabbin oval with our Saints flags once your faction gains control.

Well past needed.

Thanks and good luck!

I don't think forum elections for mods is a great idea, I'd suggest you listen to feedback and make the call, much less complicated.... And I could see that potentially getting very 'complicated'.

Happy to donate for any upgrades, too.

Sounds good, should make the main forum read only for a while after a game,

leave the "fight forum" open though, then all the drunks can bag each other and the club and the coach over there...

You have my support also.

I'm hoping one of the changes can be that the site is phone and tablet compatible.

I'll kick in some money also if it comes to that.

I thought that was how it was now? So we get the banner changed. Okay by me.

For anyone who gets upset by an outdated banner…

A work around is…

Go to the
USER CONTROL PANEL
then
BOARD PREFERENCES

In the "My Board Style" button, change this default to another colour scheme like "IDLaunch_Black"*

then click submit.

I find it easier to read this one anyway and tehre is no banner pic.

Support from me.

Please keep the ignore button so I dont have to read anything from any abusive troll

One other thing. Is it possible to ban multiple nics?

There is one clown on her with at least two nics (who actually talk to each othet).

Sure fire way to wreck a forum.
Lance or James??

There comes a point in every man's life when he has to say, "Enough is enough." For me, that time is now. I have been dealing with claims that I cheated and had an unfair advantage in <redacted>. Over the past three years, I have been subjected to a <redacted>investigation followed by <redacted> witch hunt. The toll this has taken on my family, and my work for <redacted>and on me leads me to where I am today – finished with this nonsense. (Oops just got a spontaneous errection <unredacted>)

Why not make newly registered posters unable to start a thread for a period of time?
And we simply need more mods, possibly we could all share the duty for a short period, then pass it on - eliminating the likelihood of posters abusing the position to remove others they don't care for.
The site does need someone who is prepared to invest some time and care on it, so good luck with it BFU.

I have always argued for a more "community based" forum. I think it is wrong that a single person can direct the forum as it is at present.

SS is in such a condition that any revamp is a good revamp, and on that basis, BFUSA has my support.

Good idea, even just a limit for new threads (5?) per day for everyone would stop the recent attacks.

why on earth would you go back to being an open forum?
if you want to be part of the community you join and you participate by being a member
you should not be able to just waltz in and read
you login as an active member, then you read
\the members cannot make threads until they reach 50 odd posts, wouldve stopped the d**khead last night and the other day, who i still see the mods have done nothing about as all the threads are still on the front page....report the thread report the thread, yeah well fat lot of good that did huh hsv

facebook/twitter links
inbedded you tube
donations tab that you donate via paypal, donators get a members area to talk
non donators get the era that runs adverts....mwhahahahahah :P
have a chat room function
its in the last thread we had about all this
listed about 20 things this place is behind in and needs

Because BigFooty, an open forum, is smashing us for hits and influence?

Yes, we'd have trolls so it would need moderation, which we don't have at present
