It's embarrassing.

The fact you are having to ask the question suggests you feel the same.

I personally like it, but each to their own. If the majority don’t like it then we’ll get rid.

I like it, but it could be better used.

Scrolling insulting comments about other posters would be more entertaining.

You're all stuck in the past. I had scrolling banners like that when I was playing on my Commodore 64.

It's a great idea. Showing the latest match results and next fixture is a great idea. Also the fact that the latest big news on there is handy.

If this is a news site, yes.

Now fair enough, if your long term goal is to copy & paste the whole of the BN then I guess it's fine.

But this is a forum. The mods should stop wasting time on bullshit like this, and actually write some original content.

Every thread is a copy from the BN. Why would anyone stop by? No one goes on forums to read news, they want to read opinions.

For example, instead of re-posting the BN report on the match and marks for each player, why doesn't a mod do their own?

it's in a seperate section so you don't have to read it if you don't want. I actually prefer to read it here as the BN website is awful with all the pop up adverts and video's.

As for creating more threads as the self crowned Queen of this forum then get on with it then! No BEL's for our last 2 away wins i see.

There's as much copy & paste in BW Banter as there is the news section. All the match reports and ratings are ripped from the BN.

I'd rather read a wanderlust armchair report on a game than a copy and paste job.

Got to say I’ve never understood the logic behind posting a mundane BN article with no comment or opinion attached to it. I’d make that a rule if I was the mods, only post something you can start a debate or conversation of interest with. Quality over quantity.

I originally started posting the articles to try and provoke debate on them.

Perhaps I don't have time to help run a forum and create articles as well.

Perhaps if you stopped posting your usual agenda bending bollocks on the Brexit and Trump threads etc and helped out a little in contributing some own written stuff on BWFC?

Just a thought!

Get a grip KP, the site runs itself.

And it's a bit rich to ask the members to write something original when you can't be arsed yourself.

How is it a bit rich? It’s a bloody forum where people come to chip in their 2p worth and talk all things Wanderers!

Not sure why it should be the sole responsibility for back room staff to create all articles?

This thread was asking for honest feedback. I gave mine in a constructive way. You’re an adult Karl and should be able to take that onboard, time to grow up - seriously.

Fwiw, since we've started doing this all the other BWFC forums to a greater extent or another have followed our lead and do the same.

The articles are put up there to provide both a news update and for the basis of comment and debate.  If we had a magic ball and could tell the articles people would respond to, then we'd just put those up - but we don't.

Experience has taught us that some articles that we certainly expected comments on have not produced any, whilst others that even we wondered whether it was worth bothering about - have produced loads!

Our aim at Nuts is to facilitate comments, opinions and debates.  It would be of benefit to us all if people bring something to the table with them when they comment rather than say start a thread without giving any background to it.

Whether we like it or not most stories originate from somewhere and a great deal of them for most of us at least originate from the Bolton News/Marc Iles.

Originally people would start threads giving no background source as to what they were commenting on - nobody knew if it was genuine or just some made up bullshit.  I got so fed up with having to find the source of all these stories - in order to give other Nuts posters and viewers some context as to what was being said that I decided it would be much easier if we put up the articles as news items in their own section as a basis as easier for all to see what was going on at the club and as a basis for informed discussion and debate - whilst on every occasion giving the Bolton News/Marc Iles full credit for their articles that were seldom if ever credited before (and still not on a regular basis at some other BWFC forums).  Full credit to Karly who has since taken on the vast bulk of the work ever since.

It's easy to be glib and state you prefer quality over quantity - I'm sure we all would - but papers need to fill their pages to keep people returning to them and similarly people flock to busy forums rather than dead ones.

At the end of the day a forum like ours is dependant on people posting - even then some people have issues at what others views and opinions they hold and state - hence the personal abuse and flouncing off and deletion of accounts at times.  We at least are making an effort to provide a minimum daily news feature on the club we all support which hopefully will lead to discussion and debate.

All the mods and Admins on here have their own real life families and careers to deal with and donate whatever free time they can spare that they have left to making Nuts as best as it is.  

We are always looking for others to help and volunteer their time and efforts to make Nuts even better for us all.  We've asked multiple times publicly and have also contacted a number of people privately if they would like to help Nuts by becoming mods and having a direct influence on our development and future for the benefit of all Nuts posters and readers.

Many hands make light work as they say.

So until then we'll continue doing our very best for Nuts with the people who do  want to put effort into the site and apologise to those who don't think we are doing the right thing but don't have the time or the inclination to want to help us themselves.

All good Sluffy, I don’t go on other forums so if we’re inspiring others that’s great. 

It’s your forum to run as you please, I was just giving my opinion on the matter nobody under any obligation to read/take it seriously.

And the members don't? You make out being a mod is a time consuming responsibility when, in truth, there is fuck all modding to be done.

At the end of the day, until we (the members) see some effort from the people running the site we're hardly going to bother ourselves are we.
