Re: Unwanted posts on here

There we go, deleted and banned all those accounts. They were all registered in 2015, by the way - before we really started ramping up the efforts to stop them signing up. Just sat there.

I've half a mind to purge old accounts if I can find something in the admin panel to do that, actually...

Maybe it'll give us the penetration up front that we've been crying out for in recent weeks? We certainly need something to get the blood pumping.

Then they'll start posting on the other forum's, it's getting beyond a joke. Hopefully something will be done sooner rather than later.

Re: Support Uncovered through Amazon

All sorted now but I have to create a new tracking ID, so I'll sort that over the weekend, update where required, and make a new thread. I'll probably have to delete this one as - without checking - I would assume people have quoted my original "offending" post and I won't get time to clean it up.

Re: DFC Board very quiet on the Fundraising

I have found our twitter to be strangely quiet in general recently. Other clubs at this level seem to push home games constantly, whereas our twitter account doesn't seem to mention much at all until the day before/day of the game. I appreciate it will be run by volunteers, but considering we have ...

Re: Next seasons playoffs

They would only be single games rather than two legged affairs, so there wouldn't be any extra games:

Current system: 5v2 / 2v5, 4v3 / 3v4 + Final = five games
New system: 4v7, 5v6 + 2v(A), 3v(B) + Final = five games

You can appoint a proxy to vote on your behalf by firstly finding someone willing, and then e-mailing the SG to let them know, per the instructions in the e-mail you may or may not have received by now.

Excellent summary Mikky. I know it's not the same thing but Salford's owners appear to have a 50/50 split between Peter Lim and the class of 92. Perhaps this would be possible for us?
