    As you might recall from a few months ago, I ran a poll on whether to make the forum more neutral and include other teams, somewhat like footymad. It was a landslide vote in favour of yes, but I've only just gotten the time to implement the change (trust me, it's taken many, many hours!)

    So, this is the new site. It's no longer just Barnsley anymore. All the old TykeTalk threads and posts have been preserved and brought forward to the new site, but there might just be some missing from May 23rd to May 24th.

    Take a look around, invite your love/hate relationship Owl and Blade friends & colleagues, and let's see how quickly we can get this up and running :)

    Cheers Allegrif.
    I'll admit to being a bit baffled at first, cos I couldn't remember the vote at all (but goats are easily baffled at the best of times and don't have much in the way of memory). So when I came on here yesterday this all looked a bit odd and I thought at first that the loss of the "recent posts" sidebar would be a problem. Then I realised that the Barnsley section was exactly what I'd always wanted, just a straight list of topics without all the confusion of multiple folders, just the same as Tykesmad.
    Shame that we've lost the reference to the Rimmington Suite, as that was a nice touch, but maybe we could dedicate the BFC section "in memory of Rimmo" or words to that effect.
    Slightly concerned about the timing, as the previous format was just starting to burst into life again, with some new posters and some old faces reappearing. Hopefully the loss of the last couple of days posts won't put them off. Main thing is that we get posting again, get the show back on the road and build the whole thing up. Not sure how much appetite there will be from established footie communities to relocate to this place, but time will tell.

    Question - in the past we had occasional glitches when (I think) we might have overloaded the place. Is that right and could it be a problem if the other teams sections start to blossom? Or is capacity not aproblem?

    Yes, perhaps in hindsight a bit more forewarning might have been appropriate. My apologies, I'm actually autistic so sometimes things like that fly over my head. Sorry if anyone was a bit taken aback.

    We'll get a reference to Rimmo in, I was hoping for some input on how we could go about that.

    Capacity shouldn't be an issue - Tyketalk had some bugs in it which are not present in this newer platform.

    You could try contacting them on FM with private messages Roma, but I dont think FM would like any of us plugging a rival site on their own boards. :eek:

    Adam Le Fondre ? Now theres a forgotten man if ever there was one.
    In fact who is he, I cant even remember. :p

    There are loads of FM fans who I think I could trust to give it a go on here but Im not sure if they would be interested as its so quiet right now.

    I'll be working on some free promotion methods this week. Some of my Facebook stuff yielded those Wigan fans, but it looks like there wasn't enough content to keep them yet

    Exactly Griff, thats kind of what I meant.
    Basically this is still the old Tyke Talk isnt it at the moment, between us Barnsley lot. I hope this works out though, and that some new inter-board banter with fans of other teams can start. The best thing about this site is NO ads. :)

    Agree with all the above, I guess its up to us to keep things ticking over for the next few months. Maybe a few OT posts would help - I shall put my thinking cap on.

    As much as I like Roma's and SBReds's ramblings, it does put other posters off as they don't understand "SPEYK" short attention spans and they cant be bothered to work it out
    Last of the Summer Wine :D
    But seriously my own kids won't post on here because 1) it isn't facebook 2) they can't understand some of the language and humour (well they are teenagers) 3) They are like their mother :(
    But they ARE Reds fans :D

    Most forums are being killed by Facebook now, but to be honest I much prefer the feel of a forum. It's more orderly and less hectic
