It's not the cost - we've had a whip around before and raised more than enough to keep it running.

It's the time commitment and knowledge to manage, maintain, administer and moderate it that needs to be taken on by someone else.
I would imagine the occasions where the site fails and everyone is moaning about it makes it a thankless task fior anyone to undertake.

If a committee was formed (a group of volunteers), this Forum could be run so much better than it is (organised better).
You're 20 years too late, forums in general are dying. There isn't enough traffic to sustain two niche forums for a club like ours. Several posters who used to post here have moved to the AllThingsCounty forum and have said they won't be returning here.

If you think you can get enough interest to form a committee and make improvements then good luck to you, but I can't see that happening.
You can never say never. If you really want something to work, it can be done. Look at our club for instance, who really thought that Newport County would be back in the Football League 25 years later?

Would echo other sentiments here - I find it totally useable and an easy interface. Would be interested to know what anyone struggles with

We should really try and get behind the new site as the only present alternative. I think it’s a valuable and interesting site and not everyone wants to use Facebook

There is that it’s true and I find the appearance of the site most unattractive. Even when it’s clunky I find this site much better. Like B&H I doubt I’ll bother as much anymore, still it’ll be a whole lot better for my screen time and will free up time for more useful pursuits.
