I was around these parts when this board was first born many moons ago.
Gradually falling off over time.

Nice to see you, whoever you are.

This board has only been completely wiped out once, unlike others ...

Must admit it's very quiet

Hardly anyone posts on here any more

I think most are on some kind of social media

Yeah, the place literally only exists for the 5 a side. If that could be done through an app it would be pretty dormant in here.

I'm as guilty as most for not contributing, but there seems to be zero Boro talk, no other sports talk. B17 predicts gets updated once in a while ( :embarrass: ) and even the gaming forum is pretty quiet now.

Pity really as its a good format for a message board and not chock full of clickbait like t'other place. I guess it's like everything else and time and technology have moved on.

I see there's 185 registered users, including some who have never posted. Is it worth contacting them and encouraging them to give us another look? The superior functionality over other boards and non-confrontational nature must count for something.

I think the thing is a lack of content; it's easy to get involved if it's busy - if it's not, then people don't - which means it's still not busy.

The lack of a good mobile version doesn't help; but there's a lot of time, effort and money needed to fix that; so it's not going to get fixed unless there's a good reason to do so.

Tough situation :(

Oh. Not being a mobile user I wasn't aware of that.

But there's 37 who have at least looked at it i the last 5 minutes.
