Having not been around here for a while, what the hell happened?

The long version?

Berg was run over. Berg was in hospital for a while. Berg came back around Xmas 2008. Berg vanished again. Site continued with no admin. Site suffered from spambots etc, attempts to contact Berg failed. Contact MFF to see if we could regain control of the boards as Berg had been absent for about 18 months. MFF said yes - we held a poll, Slapshot and Berck won the poll. SS became new owner of the forum.

Someone then sent off a letter to MFF threatening action over something someone had said on these boards (we have no idea it could be libel or copywrite). MFF said to SS - do something or the forum gets unplugged. So SS wrote the new guidelines trying to stay within the original idea of the forum - ie moderation free. The upshot is the same as before but we have 'McQuaid's office' which is members only (you have to be logged in) to view, for anything naughty you might want to talk about.

Hope that helps.

Hi all,
Since the guidelines were posted on the 12th of March thing have been good around here which is pleasing. There have been a couple of threads under the new guidelines that should have been moved but I felt it only fair to allow people who maybe don't spend half their sad lives in here (me!!) to see what was going on.

I've had a fair few messages from site members who don't spend much time in here welcoming the changes and one damning them completely (and no it wasn't MJM or Sooty Wink ), that's disappointing but you can't please everyone.

Anyway as everyone's had enough time to see what's going on as of now we'll apply the rules a little more stringently therefore if you want to post something that's guaranteed to get the blood boiling put it McQs office, if it appears anywhere else we'll put it in there. Please use McQ's office for what it was meant and keep the other forums for what they should be used for,

Cheers

Slapshot

Good to hear that you are doing well. I'm surprised you could still login. I thought Slapshot took your old account over.

Hey Berg

Great to have you back - we were all worried about you.  These surprise controls can be a bore - but now you are back I'm expecting a Bassoesqe return to your former glory.

Made my day!

Great to have you back Berg.

Nothing much has changed since you left- really. Same old good bunch of folks on here, some old, some new!

Great to hear from you again. compress

As I remember that you had a cycling accident in Spain (was it) and were in a bad way so I have thought the worst.

Good to hear from you Berg, stick around mate.

I'll drop you a PM shortly.

Like me (betarider account) there was another account Berg had sitting, it was only the ownership account I had to take on.

Right, the Thought Police expands by 1!!

Not really, as Berg has returned it's only correct that we restore his admin rights which I've done. He's registered a new account in the original name though if it's acceptable with the hosts I'll restore his original account, post count's that sort of thing.

If anyone has any objections to this please email me...........and I'll completely ignore it! Wink  Wink
