Not to be arselicky, but I think the mods do a grand job. If I was in charge I'd go ban mental over the throbbing weapons on here - and that's not just the Poolie obsessives and bottom-feeding Northern league yokels.

Hope the Twitter thing gets sorted and match updates aren't in jeopardy for the new season - they're very useful.

You mean like:

edit: botrash removed fuck and bugger from this post.
reason: offensive words like fuck and bugger were used.

I moderate another forum where swearing isn't allowed and anything close to a descent to name calling is harshly dealt with, I've not been on any forum that is more lenient than this one to be honest.

If something is deleted or changed then maybe a PM to the person who wrote it should be done but thats it, no need for the whole forum to be knowing.

No mention of Bellsy, Gotto, Leonseo, Thommo, Tez, Bez, Jez and AJ, so I suspect not.

I have to admit I'd like to see a bit more transparency from the supporters club in respect to how much fans money is held whether its in a high interest account and how and when they intend to next make a payment as if its last payment was February to me that's surprising as obviously doing the 1883 lottery I thought my money was bring paid monthly directly to the club. Anyone know?

If anything it creates a feel good factor and doing some PR on the cash transfer is another way to increase visibility and transparency.

A high interest account :lol: - whats one of those these days?

At the last fans forum I detected some annoyance that the club itself wasn't in control of the 1883 draw and Martin Jesper talked about setting up another lottery.

I think the draw is a great idea, and done well over the last 18 months, but it seems to have stopped growing over the last 6 months or so. I'd guess there are only 125-150 members currently so there is certainly potential to increase it significantly. I was amazed that info on it wasn't included in the season ticket leaflets for example.

The supporters club & DFC should get together and come up with a plan on how to grow the lottery over the coming season.

Yep, its a great little incentive which must take next to no administration. Things like this should be pushed as much as possible.

Pretty much echo this. I am sure it could be done, if they take away the option to pay annually and only have the £5 s/o option then it is less likely that people will stop entering.

I'd like to know the status of the Uncovered Fund too. Any ideas when we are going to be updated on this anybody?
Come on Darlo!
