:?

Do we have the original team running the site from conception?

I am trying to fathom how it went through such a huge and drastic change from Oct 1999 though to March 2000???

The whole concept of the site and its users changed from being nationwide to locals in a period of months....???

Any info anyone??

Be safe! :wink:

It's not just restricted to locals, you just actually have to register to post, no more anonymous slander.
The board is also under constant pressure from idiot spammers, hence the need to keep it more restricted.

I understand the concept of having to register before posting, it does cut out the random idiots just surfing and leaving inane comments.

My point was that there were dozens of posters from all over, then suddenly over a period of 3 months it shrunk to nigh on zero?

Having to register surely didn't deter all of the users from regular posting?

Anyway, i like the site and its a shame it is underused after claiming such good and vibrant posters as it has in the past.

Good luck for the future!

random comment seekers
