simon should make the call himself
he has been put in charge as admin
otherwise he might as well hand in the admin badge to the owner and let the owner never make a decision

besides, yourself and kozi are here at least once a day now and i cant see a poll asking weather you two are complete peanuts
i mean who is going to do that and cop a ban for life nad lose a post count and have to start again?

but we couldve had a poll on 'who do you think will be delisted' etc etc eg



Like I said, not sure about BFUSA asking Damien. That might not be true. I've PM'ed BFUSA asking him about it so will get back to you when he replies. Or if he sees this thread he might reply in here directly. Agree with you that there's no reason they can't be re-instated. Good idea.

Any feedback on this? It's possible on most forums.

With the draft coming up there's numerous highlight reels of prospective draftees. At the moment we are forced to leave this site if we want to view them.

Have also forwarded this suggestion to BFUSA as site administrator. Will come back to you about it. Alternatively you could also PM BFUSA if you want to.

Have requested polls be activated (please understand that I don't do the techy stuff myself) ...

As for the embedded video ... will ask BUT I am scared about what videos some people will load!

Dont we have report buttons and mods for problems. If it is porn then just get rid of it. A 5 year old can accidently see porn on the computer. By the way what happened to the GF getting rid of sub forums. I thought no one wanted the sub forums.

so youre worried about what someone might embed (dont worry i dont think it will work anyway) but youre not worried about links that people put up?
its exactly the same thing!

good lord
how many porn links have you had to delete from people being peanuts????
prob none
so why think someone will embed a porn vid?

i cant believe we're still running s*** past damien :roll:
but anyway
cheers for asking the owner who never shows up 8-)

Actually it is the owner making the changes.

I believe he has activated the polls now.

I see your point re embedded video vs video links ... Question is how quickly as volunteer moderators we can remove such posts.

I guess we can see if it is possible first - then discuss possible pros and cons.

As for the General Forum - I am unsure how we merge old posts into one single forum and awaiting an answer because I would hate to accidentally delete old posts.

Embedding? Cool.

Here's one to embed... not quite porn, but maybe worth an MA rating...?

Im sure if we had a poll as to whether we merge and we accidently delete posts the answer will be try and bad luck if we lose old posts. They can just be started again anyway.

Nike I say.

I watched this great highlight reel of Plugger kicking 10 goals the other day on youtube, and thought how great it would be to post it on this site. But I can't.

Posting a link is just not the same. On virtually every other forum I peruse (including bigfooty etc.) you can post videos.

Right now people can post pornagraphic photos if they want to. How often does that happen?

There should be two tabs below the submit button. One says options and the other says polls.

from memory they cant be embedded in this format that we are running
sorry...they are running.
its been asked before from memory
could be wrong tho but am fairly certain

but agreed
it looks so much better and is just one click away
we really are lagging behind in ability over here a little compared to other sites most of us would frequent

I tried reading the phpBB forums and it seemed that it needed to be activated in admin, allowing the [youtube][/youtube] code which is not currently an option.

more than two months ago , a committment was offered , in this very thread , by the current Admin to come back with further discussion points regarding the pros and cons of video imbedding.

You got NOTHING.

... but as everyone clearly saw in the 'Look at us , the poor suffering bickered apon silent majority' thread in the Ham forum ... the decision to continue to fear the future has already been made , executed and now propagandised AND followed up with another vote catching round of ridiculous petty board warnings



Forget blaming the 'owner'.
This Admin guy is the one who's playing politics with ya.

Its playbook 101 of this Administration.

( shoot the messenger , AGAIN , lol , if u have to , but it wont fix your well earned perception of pomposity )


Community consultation looks good when written quickly.
Shameful thats its just piss n wind , though.

just saw that its been a year since anyone posted in the cheer squad forum
not bagging them as they are great people who support our club but maybe its time to have a look at that section of the forum?
maybe a cheers squad sticky on the main page and all stuff re cheer squad goes in there (get rid of the lenny tribute one which is also out of date)?
i mean seating stuff at grounds etc gets asked in the main forum anyway so everything else could possibly just be asked in a cheer squad thread???

just an idea
