    I am registered on 5 different farming forums. Clives one I look at every day, the others 2-3 times a week. Nothing you or anyone says will make me choose one over the others. In fact, if you tell me to forget the others, I am more likely to stop using the one you are pushing.

    If someone doesn't like a forum, then they can just walk away and never log on again. It's really that simple.
    Forums grow, pick up membership, pass the magic number which means they have some sort of momentum. Then something happens, they fade or get shut down and die.
    Ten minutes on google will produce a score of moribund forums where only the spambots post anymore
    A forum where the main discussion is about the nature of the forum is a waste of time and people will walk away.

    So at 10,000 posts I believe that would take the Duck 5000 days/13.7 years to achieve.

    I also agree but name calling & personal attacks is another territory all together.
    Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results.

    Re: 2 forums again.

    You've got to have a sense of humour in life. Whether mine is always appreciated is another thing. Sometimes feel I'm casting pearls before swine, but never mind that some real swine have crawled out of the mire to post here recently.

    Who ever you think I am, I can assure you If i had something to say i would say it in the open forum or not at all, I would certainly not send abusive private messages to anyone, so please do not accuse me of doing so.

    I you think I am a banned user, I suggest you tell either the forum owner or the moderators.

    I agree entirely Jim.

    BFF started because people were dissatisfied with the Farmers' weekly site, if people aren't happy with BFF then they will likewise go elsewhere. At the moment i think it is still fit for purpose, and may yet improve as some new people come on board and contribute. Sometimes a bit of competition is no bad thing. Nothing is forever, especially on the internet, I belong to a number of forums, not all of them farming related, I read them for a bit and if I get bored, I go elsewhere.

    Re: 2 forums again.

    I don't want to see the forums joined as it seems clive is doing a great job of keeping all the motormouths and previously banned muppets entertained on his forum. I don't care why previously some people were not able to join or not and I dont need an explanation for what has gone on before. I don't care how many posts and threads the other forum has got as it is all about quality not quantity at the end of the day. I dont want to read offensive jokes, stupid comments and remarks by people who are ony interested in telling eveybody how great they think they are. Some people seem to think this is all a race or a numbers game on post counts or number of threads but it isnt.
    This forum seems to be well organised, pleasant, informative and with the exception of a few who have crept in, very friendly.
    If people really like another forum then go there, its a free country. If there are 10 or 10,000 members on BFF then thats fine because hopefully people can get the best out of it and its members and looking through the various threads so far thats exactly what people are doing and thats great to see. This is only one of thousands of farming or machinery forums on the net and if you like it then use it.

    I'd write plus one to Dragline's post, but then I'd have to shoot myself.

    Re: 2 forums again.

    My final contribution to this thread. I guess like many i miss the old forum as it had so many on there some of these seem to of drifted now. I was not aware of free email problems as i dont have a free email account. All i said was its a shame that its gone to two but like everything things evolve and i had better evolve with it, This has always been and will always be my farming forum. Some of the comments have been very good and enlightening to the state that i think well thats right the fittest will survive. Some comments have been down right rude, there is no need for that. I sincerely hope that over time we get back all the fantastic contributors that have made this such a good place.

    Re: 2 forums again.

    One or two posts have had to be removed.
    I don't think there is too much point continuing to rake over this issue, so I'll close this thread now.

    We'll just have to see how thing pan out.

    Cheers everyone.
