New forum announcement
« on: March 29, 2020, 08:33:56 PM »
Dear TV Smith Supporters, TUTS!

in order to make this forum full functional again and get new members etc,
we are going to replace this forum with a new one.
We won't migrate any messages or accounts.
You actually have to create new accounts and rebuild your reputation.
For some this might be the chance for a clean cut. ;-)

Please comment!

So, that'll be the third version I think?!

When are you looking at doing this please Klaus?

Also, will this old version still be accessible? Some sections, like those about Dave and Alan, mean a lot to some of us.

Stay well, Fred.

When will this probably happen?

Well I do welcome the idea of making it possible for new members to join! That's been missing for years.

I'm ready to make the cut - at least for the first few months, I'd prefer not to be a Mod on the new one.

Maybe I can hide my identity behind a new nick?  ;)
But I will probably be posting about the Cure and then Fred will know who I am.  ;D

Hi,
I am one of those that have been absent from this site for a while as my excuse is that there is just so much going on in life that I really haven't had much time to be honest.
I do appreciate this site that has a small but loyal fan base and do their upmost to maintain it, long may it continue in one form or another.
I would just ask that all the useful, informative, and historical data is not lost forever and is somehow transferred or accessible to new and old members alike.
Best Wishes from North Wales and hope to maintain a part of this family.
Dave

I've see things you people wouldn't believe on this Forum...

All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.




Unless this old Forum is mothballed but still accessible to view I don't think I'll bother.
I won't be able to remember all these things.
Wiping all the history seems like vandalism.

Sad.

Welcome back Dave - and I hope things are going as well as they can be with you and yours at this uncertain time.

I'm with Ken on this one. Can you lock this Forum, but still make it accessible please Klaus? I remember you doing this with the old Forum.

This current forum is FAR easier to navigate/find old posts on than the original one, so I do think that people would appreciate this. I must confess that I always smile when I post in a thread started by, or containing posts from, Dave/C5 and Alan. It makes me think that they are still with us somehow - even if it's only virtually.

Agree with Fred et al, would be great to be able to look back on the older stuff whilst being part of a brave new dawn. Stay safe chaps x

Thanks for your feedback!  :)

Yes, the old data will be kept available in read-only mode.
I might set up the new forum next weekend.
There's another surprise in the works by TV.

Cheers
Klaus
