I am hoping he knows how much I appreciate his contributions but it takes more than that. Twitter is our best tool. One Tweet and we can double the amount of people online. It's making them want to register which is proving the challenge.

Yes, take your point again. You're being very reasonable today. xx

Aww thanks Wink

So it begs the question why? We obviously know it could be any of the below:

- Too many forums
- Too complicated for your average Blackpool fan (find that hard to believe though)
- Content
- Bad language
- Too quiet at times

Obviously I am focusing on the 'negatives' but I have to in order to improve things.

I have been online loads of time where people arent posting because no one else is. There is normally enough people online to keep things ticking over if they posted!

I would have less sections and just simply put O/T before a non football post. The forum seems busier and it will encourage other people to post rather than having a quick look.

2 best kebab thread!
3 hobnob or custard cream! Which is best thread?


All the above get large run chases on avit!



Seems the best option is to merge with avftt. if you want the traffic and the same settings

Merge never, rather get a half season ticket at hugely discounted price.

As someone pointed out earlier! Out of both sites there are less than 150 regular users! Out of 10,000 + regulars at Bloomfield road . I get the feeling most people just aren't interested in forums at all!

Looks like your suggestion has worked. There are two threads on there about it already!
