Just a thought.
Then the Brexit board wouldn't have any football or Boro related interruptions.

Agree, this board is awful now, majority of posts are politics.
I only check here out of habit really because I used to find it a good read but there's rarely anything of interest anymore as I don't post about politics or Brexit.

It's true..

I used to enjoy reading the odd thread about politics (not that i ever got involved, because, well, what's the point?), but this is ridiculous now

He should just sticky a Brexit Thread to the top of the page and everything must go in there.

Trouble is Brexit is something that will radically alter peoples lives, sometimes some things are far more important than football, like the country about to disappear down the tubes..and this place has always been much more than just footie...

I think it's partly because it's been international week.

I'd imagine there will be plenty of football related posts over the weekend.

Marvanelli, I got involved with Brexit, which I regret totally, it just seemed the name calling which I took to serious & then hit back, apologised & moved on, people who post either for remain, or leave about Brexit are as angry & concerned as everyone, this board is good, as it covers many topics

There are topics posted that people are asking for advice, help, in need of something & someone will pop along & help

Leave it as it is, post what you want & open to read what you want, this board cant be policed to make it just football

"theres always the option of you setting up a purely dedicated boro football forum...

What? Like other clubs do? Pretty obvious someone was going to come out with something like this. I hate to say it, but look at the mackems board, lovely lay out, looks easy to post pictures etc and purely football!!!

As a long time poster, this has long since become a community for Boro fans to talk to each other,not just a forum about the Boro. I've seen it used for so many positive things over the years.

It you only want to talk football, just click the football threads? What you're doing is the cyber equivalent of going into the Nops Club before a game and telling off any table of Boro fans who aren't talking about the match!

Woodgate press conference yesterday, not one mention on here.
Multiple interviews with him discussing players and the team in the Gazette, no mention.
I posted a thread about player injuries the other day, 6 posts in it and 2 were my own.

Don't even think I've seen it mentioned on here that Robbie Keane's son is with our youth set up now.

SteelRiverReds, its irrelevant what other boards look like, this one, for all its faults, looks the way it does...

it gets lots of hits from people posting anything from drivel to fantastic musings of crazy minds...

it covers football and social issues and anything else anyone wants to post...

Ive been on boards that have topical subdivisions and the general chat is usually much more used than the actual topic of the board as a whole...

its not great but its obviously doing somthing right as even those complaining still come back to read it...

like has been said, people have been saying its not as good as it used to be, in that case the place must have been nivarna back in the day...

I'm not really into politics, I'll read some of the threads but not contribute. Doesn't really bother me though, I tend to just look at the threads and click on the ones that interest me.

Don't see why it's so difficult to just not click on them or why it annoys people if there are 15 out of 50 threads on politics on the front page.

They have several subforums, and even have a subforum dedicated to Politics.

One thing I noticed on there is they have a big thread entitled 'Newcastle', as I think admin got sick of people constantly starting threads about them spamming the board.

Maybe it would be worth creating a 'Brexit' thread on here and having it as a sticky, although obviously it would be different on here as you can't just jump to a page number.

The problem with having sticky threads or sub forums is that the board set up doesn't really allow that to be done successfully.

For example, you can't simply click and respond to specific post. You need to copy it, paste it into a new post and then write your own musings. Not easy on a phone, especially if you then try and proof read your post as only a section of it is viewable.

Simple things like that would make this site much, much better.

Here’s a thought.... just open the threads you want to and ignore the ones that don’t interest you. Just walk past all the Brexit, political, music, travel, finance, health, mortgage advice etc etc. Or should we stop all those as well? And if there aren’t enough Boro threads...start some? If you’ve anything interesting to say people will respond.

I think this forum is all the better for the broad variety of topics in between the usual Boro related fighting.
There are often as many angry threads with people arguing over Boro managers, formations, players etc as there are angry political threads.

As William Cowper wrote in his poem ‘The Task’
“Variety is the very spice of life, that gives it all its flavour.”

So true [^]

Many threads are clear what the subject matter is and people do not need to open them up if they are not interested. I bet curiosity always gets the better of many of them though [:D]

There are 50 threads on the front page, less than 20 are about Middlesbrough FC and about 5 are about the football club right now.

There are very few threads to actually click on if you're not wanting to discuss politics.

brattleboro, as I mentioned earlier on this thread, I did let it get to me but as I also pointed out, this is a very good forum, as is oneboro, just ignore posts you dont want to read, each to their own, this forum is only as good as the posters who post, post away, evety day, fill the board with stuff you want to see & contribute to

I was recently registered on twitter but binned that, I do like flyme & even though i spat my dummy out & said im off, Im glad I seen sense, you see every topic under the sun here & can't really say you can post this & not that, the only thing that spoils is when certain posters get personnel, but they can get personel on the football threads, just enjoy it, read what you want & post more often

Dont think theres a bad poster on here & if you look at certain non football threads certain posters have actually gone out of their way to offer advice, help others, thats whats good about flyme
