I remember when I first came across that forum and noticed at the bottom of the homepage that it had nearly one million members... I was like "WOW!"

Then I registered and realised 99,99% of them were fake users Laughing


haha there was a time when the spam accounts were deleted on a daily basis but in the end it was like pushing water uphill. in the early months there were no mods and you could post without having to join... what you got was loads of spam accounts posting porn. in some ways it would be good to go back to that but without the porn but i can't see a way around it.

continuing on from what i just said about joining the forum... what about opening the forum up say for a day or two. so you don't have to sign up you can post as a guest. and if the guest wants to stay and continue to post we could upgrade them to a member... the problem with this as i have said is porn. it would mean we would have to delete a lot of it but that means being online more of the time for that day. this is just an idea to encourage more people to post... so if you are reading this ...i would love to hear your opinions on graham's music on other music or anything you want to say... just look at what we talk about.. you don't have to agree with anyone just post what you are thinking at the time.. just go with the flow... i think we would all like to see the forum continue... even people who just come on to read... we have something here that is worth continuing with and i honestly think that if we no longer had it we would all miss it. anyway just thinking out loud

sounds like a good idea. I'm not sure if i think it will help any, but why not.

I don't want to moderate (what is there to moderate anyway), but as some of us check in here daily, it wouldn't be a problem, for me at least, to delete the occasional pornlink. Embarassed Embarassed Rolling Eyes

Let's face it, nothing much happens here these days. I think I've only had to moderate two posts in the space of 18-months!

My only concern is that it could invite troublemakers to air their grievances anonymously. Do we really want that again?
