1 Congratulations Devil's Advocate! on Mon Dec 01 2014, 13:14

After making a quick observation I think congratulations must go out to Devil's Advocate who yesterday became the leading forum poster of all time, overtaking TRM! DA now leads by 4 posts. Come on Rich, you're needed back on here to give him some competition!

DA is the only poster who has made a high number of posts that is a regular on here these days. What has happened to the others?
Keep it up DA, we need you on here or yet another SFC forum will die a death.

As mentioned in other threads, I think it's the case of a good number of former regular posters now being reluctant to post anything on the forum to avoid the wrath of the management/committee. Particularly those fans who are now close to management and directors. At least 3 posters spring immediately to mind! Laughing . It seems such a shame that in this day and age some people are scared or cautious of having opinions just in case they may upset certain individuals. The forum is for just that, opinions. As has been said before, if people who have posted on here are 'warned off' or feel slightly 'intimidated' then the club must immediately do something to avoid appearing dictatorial.

That's fine Jack, it was just a hunch. I wasn't really suggesting any maliciousness from the club in any way, just that those posters who used to post regularly and who are close to Andy P through their work for the club and personally, such as Ulster Jim, DY9 Stour,TRM,etc maybe opting not to post to avoid getting involved in any scandal as it were or get caught up in a debate. If this isn't the case then I sincerely apologise but no offence at all was intended. I suppose it's because I miss the banter as much as anything why I'm sad that those people don't post their comments which were always articulately put across and highly entertaining. I loved the passionate and often highly amusing and witty conversations. Yes at times we all disagree but that's life! As far as I'm aware nobody has ever been offensive and personal in their opinions on here, it is good natured. Some people are naturally more critical of things than others,that is just down to personality!

I for one have always looked on the negative side of everything,that applies to everything I've ever done, not just on here! I've got a very depressive,anxious,stressed personality, for which I'm receiving continual treatment, which occasionally comes through and is obvious. Other people are always positive, would never complain about anything in their lives and would never express a critical opinion. It doesn't mean one is a horrible bloke and the other one not, it's just the way we have been made.

Maybe the admin could make more efforts to bring those posters back to the forum?

TRM had over 1000 posts and now doesn't post. I assume he has either fallen out with the admin or feels he can't post because of his new official capacity at the club as social media rep.

Come back TRM this forum needs you.

Neither theory is remotely close, Paul.

Nope, Rich and I get on perfectly well. Moreover, another poster who now doesn't post I get on with just as well. It's got nowt to do with the club, or myself.

OK TRM, many apologies for getting this wrong.

Can I enquire as to the actual reason then?

There are a few actually, don't think it's right for me to name names. However as far as I know, its got nothing to do with me or the board.

Please elaborate as I think admin should try and attract them back?

What is it to do with?

It's got absolutely nothing to do with me. I don't have the right to talk on behalf of fully grown men older than me.

Its also not my job to attract people. I took the job of running the forum.

But you must know why people don't post as much/at all now? At least disclose that?

And how will you feel if yet another forum crashes and burns?

Yes I do know. But it's not my job to tell others what others are thinking. If they wanted the greater good to know, they'd come and explain themselves. The only reason I know is because I get on quite well with them away from the forum.

And to be honest, I was asked to do this and I run it. I don't get a lot if any enjoyment. Just stress.

Is it TRM, Redpike, Stourboy and Dave the Glassboy? I think they are all nice people who wouldn't mind being asked.

I post sporadically on here. Thats simply down to the number of games I actually get to attend. I can't really comment on games I didn't attend. Nothing more. What's with all the conspiracy theories?

For what it's worth, the reasons for my drop in activity on here have nothing whatsoever to do with either Jack or the committee.

Jack does a great job running this - much better than I ever did - but it's not his job to go round hassling people who have been a bit quiet recently.
