    The one thing I noticed about these forums is how many different forums/sub forums there are, everything being spread out kind of gives the impression that this place isn't very busy. and could benefit from being more condensed?

    Thoughts?

    Breaking it down a bit could make it more lively and fun.

    I'm in complete agreement. In the Premiership forum get rid of the club forums for a start.

    They're not.

    Move a couple of Liverpool threads and a couple of Man Utd threads into the main forum and you can do away with the entire lot of club forums.

    You could get even more of a community feel if you limit the forums I believe, I'm not really feeling the passion with the way things are at the moment, and that's no disrespect to anyone, I'm guessing this place was a lot busier at one point?

    If you want to feel the passion you want a trip to the cave after Rock has had some making up to do with regards to the missus

    edit: Or is it commission in english for the german Provision? Anyway...

    I think Rock will give me 15% off any roofing work I need doing to my house.

    For sure a lot busier judging by the amount of old threads.

    Really? I'm happy to discuss Liverpool in the main forum. It would literally be moving a couple of threads as far as I can see - or rather move all the threads but only a couple would really remain active.

    Liverpool and United could even have their own threads for discussion if needed.

    Well we tried to merge the League One and Two forums but didn't go down too well!

    Fair play. I think this would be less drastic though?

    Part of the forum?

    Thank you

    Do you disagree then? I feel it would make the forum better and less diluted.

    Many moons ago.

    After 17 years away a new account isn’t a deal breaker

    if a lot of people felt that way it might be something to look at, a small number with a hairy arse over it probably not so much so :)
