Bring back former posters

Postby BackFromUSA » Wed 29 Jan 2014 7:29pm

I believe that there are many posters from the past that may have left because of the behaviour in the past going back even a decade or so ... They left because they were either:

- subjected to baiting
- subjected to abuse
- offended by material posted
- sick of reading ongoing bickering
- etc

I do realize that some people may have been attracted to Saintsational for those very reasons.

However I am interested in creating a list of these lost posters and then I shall mine the database to try to track down these firmer posters and invite them back to what I hope is a more friendly fan forum ...

So who has gone AWOL?

Any hints on where I can e-mail them ... Please PM me.

It would be great to get them back pre-season.

May the list begin!

not sure Bubba qualifies as a 'firmer' poster.

unless u can vouch for his lack of creativity , spontanaity , cheekiness
'n humour appreciation.

SS was in its prime in like 05 or so, then the threads became less about the club/footy talk, and just people arguing pointlessly.

If you take a look at the StKilda section of BigFooty you'll see some familiar names.

Serious question. Educate me. What started in July that prevents people from joining?

If you are referring to the inability of people to read without registering?

I thought that started well before July last year?

I have asked admin to alter this and make it open to view but registered to post.

I am awaiting a response for this request.

I seriously hope it will be changed.

I don't gave the authority or access to do this as a Mod.

Only admin can.

Really?

Ok PM me their details and I shall help them through the registration process.

Of course if we had a website with features like

- how to register PDF
- how to set up your view options

AND

- contact for assistance

Well this would help.

Here is a big part of the problem IMO. Admin do not seem to be actively managing the site. I know for a fact that they can take weeks or even months to respond to PMs. The site is a ship without a rudder. Who owns the site? Is it possible for the owner of the site to come on the board and participate openly in discussion and listen to poster concerns and what they think might help improve Saintsational?

If the owner and/or administrator of Saintsational takes weeks and some times months to respond to PMs or requests for assistance as it stands now, I'd be curious to know how the new website will improve that?

Nah - you're correct (which is why I made a comment about putting out some bait). We hardly need it back as Nexus anything given that it's still here masquerading as citywest,

There are a couple of others that have been mentioned that are also still here, just with different names.
