Proposed restructure of the oneBoro Forum

Well it's about time they stepped up then. 

I dont want to have to sift through hundreds of topics with only a few posts on each just to get to the good content. I know where the decent discussions are with the megathreads.

The Cream always rises to the top!

I'll point out if the mods got harsher on moving/deleting posts, the outcry from this forum would be immense.

It always is; every time. You know that full well D.Z, we've both been a part of it in the past.

It basically comes down to what you are used to and feel comfortable with and proposed changes to individuals are slightly annoying.

I do not like the countless threads on the same subject as seen on fmttm, it makes no sense and the shelf life is often short with very little posts.

Moderation is what it is on this forum we have great members who generally get on well and therefore it is not needed save slight deletions that sometimes are never seen or registered.

You can tell though when drink does the typing!

All for the changes so give it time and what you like the best will always be there

Sorry must have missed some things Rob but the Boro Youth's and Reserve sectionot has all the other main Forum thread's as well? 

I'm looking at in mobile version. 

Sorry if this has already been mentioned 

@Maccarone, this has been retained as a redirect to point any search traffic (or users unaware of the changes) to its new home. I'm going to move these redirect forums to the bottom of the listing and eventually remove these 👍.

I think user engagement is a key metric. if people can't be bothered to move between sections, then they might still end up derelict. 

As an example, there is now a section for "All Things Non-Boro" and this section is "Boro forum"...but there is still a sticky thread in here for Music, Films and TV series. Thats a fairly broad catch-all topic too that takes all conversations on those mediums into one place, which might not pique someones interest. Then there is another one for "All things non-football"  - both these seem to be at odds with the restructure. 

 

When discussing having non-boro football and football in the same forum - or even all content in the same forum - the chief measure I would be looking at is the oldest date of pages on the front page. As it stands, there are 5 topics that have not been updated since October 22nd which is 7 days, then a bunch that are 6 days old. To me, that suggests that conversation is just not fluid enough at present to support many subsections, and by dividing it up you keep a line of separation but you also put off potential people from getting stuck in - and anyone viewing the forum for the first time will see old threads on the forum and think that it does not get posted on much. I don't think there should be multiple topics on the same subject, but that also doesn't mean that every topic relating to TV series goes into the same pot either imo.

I think when you get to the point where all of the posts on the front page have posting activity that day then it starts to make sense to have specific sections to diverge as that stops content getting lost amongst other parts. Until then, its over-dividing it.

I don't really understand why we still have archive going back 5 seasons? nobody has looked at some for 5 years, just seems a little strange to keep? I thought we were looking to smarten things up, update things? can't really see why we need to keep these visible?

 

Maybe it's just me?

Apparently it's so matchday thread authors can look up past results.

 

Now, if only there was a website you could use for that...

The  legacy posts will come up in search rankings though so even if its unused, as long as it is out of the way its beneficial to still have it there.

    • I was just reading over the summer transfer window thread and I had one or two things to say about this in the summer 😡😀 I also found these two old posts of mine which I feel deserve to be highlighted for their prescience: From the 25th of June: I suspect that if Woodgate intends on us being a pressing / passing team (or whatever his intentions may be for us), that the majority of the players who are already here will be the players playing the bulk of the games.  I think we also have to consider that we must be desperate to get rid of some players and maybe we need to do that first before we sign their replacements?  And you've got to think that the likes of McNair, Tavernier and Fletcher are going to be used a lot more.  I wouldn't say they are like new signings or anything like that but I would see McNair as an obvious replacement for Besic and Tavernier to be used possibly in a variety of ways.  Fletcher takes one of the wide attacking positions and what are we looking for, another wide attacker and a full back or two?  I'm not saying that's how I'm looking at it, I'm just trying to look at it from the club's point of view.  So if we're only looking for a few players then things are more likely to be quiet as compared to previous windows. And even earlier on the 14th of June: It's part of our new philosophy.  Instead of having loads of right backs and one left back we are going to have loads of left backs and one right back. It's all change at Boro.   Absolutely nailed it, hurrah! ✌️ People really need to stop arguing with me now and just accept that I'm always right.
    • I think its, we're having to throw young players in desperate to make an impression and overdoing it
    • The bulk of the money the club owes is to Gibson O'Neill so he won't be putting us into administration.  Our outgoings are too high and really administration isn't going to help much with that.  We either have to reduce costs or increase revenue.  It's easier to do the former than the latter although selling some players will obviously help with that.  That's what we're doing at the moment.
    • The possibility that Gibbo is gradually winding things up in preparation for administration has occurred to me. I've been trying to push the thought away since the summer. There has been a lot of "woe is me, I've been doing everything by the rules and all these other mean clubs are cheating and making it impossible for us to compete financially" stuff coming out since last Spring. If he spins a good enough tale then a lot of fans will still see him as a hero for saving the club in 86 and giving them all these extra years. We get annoyed on here about all the lies and spin which come out of the club, but there are a lot of fans who lap it all up and believe everything they are told.
