Will hit all the existing mods as it would be good to have them come over as well.

Nae worries. If you boys need a hand with anything just shout. 10+ years web development here but no experience with forums as such.

Great effort by all, but realistically what do you expect to change by moving to a new forum? If its just to get rid of fudge then sure it will work, but aside from that you'll have hardly any members and this forum was always very lightly moderated so not too sure what can be gained by jumping ship?

A less shitty site, better notifications - a more pleasing visual situation etc

Was just thinking that this whole situation reminds me of when David Moores (in our case, Brad) waited fucking ages to sell Liverpool FC to the 'right' buyers, and then ended up selling to the worst possible candidates, Hick and Gilette (Ed). The new owners showed a lot of money at first and made promises of changes like new stadium and big name signings (mobile posting and competitions), but nothing happened. The fans (us) ended up hating the new owners and started demonstrations (this thread) until we ended selling to FSG (moving to a new site, kinda).

Cool story bro.

New forum will still be shit. The decline in quality is poster related and I’m not actually referring to the retard twins. Old fuk - WAYWT was crammed with heat now that’s few and far between. The posters were all a lot funnier. It’s just gone downhill and I don’t think it’s Redtedwhatthefuck’s fault

If new users can't even sign up then yeah, the forum will be stagnant

I think Fuk has evolved to more than a fashion forum, and I don't think that's a bad thing. I'm equally likely to come on here to find out about denim as I am about documentaries.

Fuk is more like that old bunch of mates where you repeat the same old gags and same old anecdotes but still appreciate it.

Some of the gang you don't actually like that much and you'd never go on a one-on-one pint with but they've always been there so they're still your pals.

Newcomers are treated with suspicion but the odd few are allowed into the fold after a rigourous hazing.

Are we starting a political coup or something?!

We've got older though, so our interests and priorities slowly shift, and a new younger set didn't really come into the fold to carry the flame.

Metaphorically we are basically Giggs/Scholes trying to carry a dying Manchester United.
