Talk about everything Essendon. Past, Present and Future if it's about the Bombers this is the place to be.

Gee,I thought we all swore to stay here,given the things you can’t say on Bomberblitz.

Or who they didn’t want there,like Bruce(Francis).

WTF is the point of this?
If ppl want to post great, if not, maybe they have not much to add or have a life off these boards...
Helps me decide if I'm gonna keep paying for this place.

To that point Bonce, can you shed some light on the numbers? It does appear that we are a threatened Species. I would hate to lose this forum as I am not at all interested in the chaos that is Blitz.

Would it be possible to promote the forum through some of the Facebook fan pages? A small, but vibrant Essendon fan Community should be the vision for Bombertalk but I fear we are borderline extinct.

Boncer - Possibly more to the point, without asking you to spill personal information, would it help to do a fund-raising drive to help with fees?
Call me naive, but I hadn't really thought of the/any costs to run this site. Maybe members can all "chip in" a bit?
I'd be in support of recruitment efforts too. Can't remember how I found this place originally, but I'd much rather be here than BB.

I can't even remember how much it is Nudder, think its only $60 a year or so. I got no issues paying but I mean if we only had 6 people here is it worth it?

Windy I tried recruiting but nobody here showed any interest in helping.

Well damned if we let it die.

Let’s do something as a group to add some life to these dusty but venerable pages.

Our other problem is the thousand of spam bots that descend when we try to fix the registration process away from needing manual approvals.

I'm still here too ...

Unfortunately, none of my kids are interested in a threaded forum like this ... possibly because they can't see nudie pictures or get game cheats from here... sad.

Afraid I have no idea about the technology or technicalities of what you're saying there Boncer, but sure I can learn it pretty quickly, and I'm willing to help in any way I'm capable of :) Manually filtering approvals maybe???

I'm still around. Don't post often, but excited for next year so will try to contribute more!

I improved the sign up process a while back to integrate with an anti spam service. Will have more of a look at some point :)

Doesn't cost too much to keep it going. About 60 or so a quarter.
