Just to let you know I've just done a slight rejig of some post and moved them to different threads.

So if you've been posting your pre-season thoughts on the 'Transfer Targets & Rumours' thread, just switch to posting on the more recent 'Boro's squad starts to shape up' one

I noticed this morning that it was getting a bit confusing to follow the pre-season build-up discussion as people were posting more or less the same discussion topic on both the now three-month old thread 'Boro 2021/2022 Transfer Targets & Rumours' which had entered its 11th page and the recent thread I setup to see how the squad was building ahead of the season kick-off 'Boro's squad starts to shape up'. 

The other problem is that the Transfer Targets & Rumours thread no longer appears on the Recent Threads list so depending where we are in terms of where posts were being posted, people dipping in may end up missing of some of the recent posts. So I've moved the recent chunk of those posts onto the latest thread.

I also move a batch of around a dozen posts from that recent thread that were not about football but a general contemplation of life in general to the more appropriate place of 'General Chat' that exists in the 'Members Lounge' for more personal subject matter. Interesting and enjoyable as they are to read, it could probably confuse a few of our general readers (such as a few local journalists or footballers or even managers perhaps) when they stumble upon a page of existential conversation in the middle talk on the merits of Matt Crooks and the future of Lewis Wing - even though Bill Shankly may have had a view on life and death it probably does need some context for those outside our loop.

There is life outside our loop?

Surely it must be meaningless for those on the outside looking in?

@redcarred

I think I'm not even inside my own loop sometimes...

Just to let you know that Diasboro was down for a few hours earlier due to a technical problem at the hosting end.

It seems the domain name of diasboro.club was not pointing to the site so it wasn't returning a web page when people entered it into their browsers. Thankfully the hosting company's support resolved the issue fairly quickly once I'd called them.

Exmil Challenge 2022

I thought it would make life easier if I moved the Exmil Challenge and entries to a dedicated thread as with previous one in 2020 - since it was posted in the Barnsley thread and the discussion is moving to the Spurs game then it may get hard to find

Here's the link to the new thread, which is also listed under Recent Threads

Thankfully, the site appears to be back up and running after the automatic renewal of the diasboro.club domain didn't happen as expected. Anyway, I've just manually renewed the domain so everything should work as normal now.

Thanks Werder. I thought it might have been an attack by Sheffield United "supporters".

Hi Werder 

I’d like to start a new topic, but I can’t see how to do it. Can you help?

Hi

if you go to the lead page and hit the heading that you want 

eg

General Football 

you will se a prompt that says add topic 

hit that and enter topic as text then post 

it will then come up on as a lead topic 

Hope this helps

OFB

Thanks OFB. As it happens, a friend had helped me work it out.

Just popping in on the site during the quiet pre-transfer window June period to check everything is OK.

I noticed the new thread 'House Hunting Help' by Martin - nothing wrong with that but instead of being posted under General Discussion it is better to place these type of posts under MEMBERS LOUNGE - MESSAGES as posts in the Member's Lounge are not visible to non-members and therefore is safer in case any personal information is inadvertently posted that could pose any potential security problems.

I've moved it there...

Thanks for moving it - sorry I put it in the wrong place.
