 I'm not sure what the point of locking threads is  Hmmm apart from people not being able to use them. Could some one explain what the desired outcome might be.

 Perhaps News Monkey should be released from her cage  Smiley  or the Ralphy forum revived.

To dissuade people from using those threads i'd imagine. Yes it may seem ironic; locking threads on a forum but it should encourage people to start a thread which doesn't deviate too frequently. Obviously there is nothing stopping you Reg from starting a new thread with the title, Trivial things.... Pint

I don't have the Solomonic wisdom to resolve this.... I wanted to note the passing of Bill Maynard, as I'd met the fella.  One line in the generic thread, would have sufficed, nobody much else would have been interested... Selwyn Froggitt was a long time ago

Agree with Reg on this, locking the generic threads will do nothing to improve the forum - possibly quite the opposite.

In spite of the 80% bollocks / 25% football tag line, this forum takes all its energy and enthusiasm from what's happening on the pitch. At the moment we are shit on the pitch and in our collective heart of hearts, even the most optimistic of us know that in all likelihood we are going to be in L2 again next season. The Club is in the doldrums at the moment and this is reflected here. We can but hope that will change in the near future and if/when it does, it will most definitely be reflected on here without the need to lock any threads.

The benefit of the generic threads are that if you have no interest in the subject you can steer clear. Other threads, for example the Telly Program thread is useful, and well used by many including the mods who suggest getting rid.

It's a good point... I don't watch telly, so don't think I've ever posted anything there.

I was really looking forward to the response from Hobodan, to my genuinely sincere questions  Soapy Tit Wank

I'm not so sure you could handle my response. I believe you are impervious to facts and reason, i suspect i'll get the dummy at full force.  Baby 

I do miss those of you who are of a leftist persuasion getting all salty over my opinion of islam, yet ironically you'll be voting for this guy.......

Likewise, I haven't watched telly for years. I first joined the stfc group on yahoo groups which was an email thing, I think it's long gone.

When the forums started I used to look in at myonlyswindon and thisisstfc . Also the fanny forum which was funny. I'm sure there was another forum too, quiet, but with a character called Dr Zoidberg? That was good.

TEF is great, I read some things on twitter, but avoid Facebook like the plague. Keep it as it is/was, love reading some of the comments. Haven't posted much in the years I've been here, but cheers to those who do.
