For now at least could the sub-forums be put to the bottom of the page and the old general forum be put to the top (with the removal of a couple of the stickies)...?

Or is that just as technically complicated?

So without consultation, Simon took it on himself to split the forums.
In the middle of the night,as I recall.(?)
Then says not my problem when the general consensus is clearly to put it back.

And as for saying there's too much work, well that's what happens when you do nothing for so long.

i think it was more 'consensus' didnt match what was the New Plan
for the rabble rousers who infested the General.
(who , imo , were unfairly blamed for SS's 'seeming' woes)

What about just deleting all the threads and starting again if that isn't to much work.

Firstly the GF change was via consultation - just after the fact there were objections.

Second - I am not deleting any threads. That is not an option. If they don't breach rules they have every right to remain.

Lastly I shall try to do the other stuff.

No idea why this is so important to you all - it doesn't impact on your ability to post in the forum or forums and it certainly allows readers (maybe other than you) to find areas of interest to look at rather than the way the old gf lumped it all together.

Anyway I am not here to argue rather to let you know that I shall see what I can do.

This is not my highest priority in life.

Simon, first you stated you didn't see a need for a GF. You weren't a user or a fan. Next you decided to split it - why you had ideas to change something you weren't a user of I don't know. Then you informed us of your idea - almost everyone was against it as I recall, but you went ahead anyway. A bit of effort involved in doing so no doubt.
Now you can't be bothered as it's not important to you - yet important enough to change in the first place? And you even denigrate users to suggest they shouldn't care - the equivalent of 'get a life'.
It's forum where we share ideas. We use it and enjoy it.
Go and split the main forum into subforums and see what happens.

I reckon no one care if old threads were deleted if it is easy to do and would make your work easier to make the GF one forum again.

.. sub forums moved to the Bottom of the page
... remove the word 'New' from the title

Basically , gives us our General Forum back , does it not.

... then , i would expect it would be the subs that die their natural death
simply by non posting below the line.

And ... if their was any fair dinkumness about this whole
(imo , disgustingly manipulative) episode ,
it would be written into the 'Rules' of usage ,
that it is each posters RESPONSIBILITY , to leave BEFORE they are offended.

Which removes the dobbers & wingers from the Community
without any further involvement of mods or admin
needed , required or desired.

Everyone wins & we can start letting go the resentment 'n bitterness created
by the bullsh1t we have endured.

i for one , will never post in the sub forums again ,
be they above the line or below the line.

and its a pity i'm so disallusioned about it all ,
that i struggle to support Sen & Markp in their practice of seemingly** already doing so.

i could be wrong ,
but thats how it seems to me.

Well said.

Don't see the need to denigrate.

So it's an obscure tiny community within a bigger obscure tiny community.

Having a dig at it from the lofty height of admin of a half-a*sed fkn Aussie rules footy fan forum is like a Star Wars freak taking a crack at a Star Trek freak.

Beam me up scotty!

The GF has returned to normal.

Now let us all reflect on the phrase, "if it aint broke, don't fix it....."

I don't know why you went out of your way to help posters who only abuse you. You obviously are a better person than any of them
