John & Mike

I agree that more interesting topics of conversation and discussion are required, any suggestions? It can't always be left to admin to start new topics.

I don't know, I have a day off from the forum, to do a bit of microprocessor coding for my next product, and the place starts falling apart.

Make no mistake guys we all know who does what and when. Nothing is compulsory, this just a wake up call to everyone.
It would be of no uses to anyone complaining when it's too late that is all.
Yes of course the answer is new members. Then we have to keep them interested. we have some very good contributors to our forum and we have to keep each other interested too.
John you say you are not much for chatting, but as our South Coast correspondent and Photograhy expert you do your bit, as do you Mike as our Chief archivist. SB

Adoo everyone. just got in from the pub, had a wonderful day chatting and doing the Times crossword, brain fodder, don't let this little forum go
it would be a shame to see it end, although we don't know each other, I think we have a fair idea of what we are about, I do look forward to reading the comments each morning, but after saying that, there's only so much you can say about the weather, blah, blah, we need some impetus, so come on you youngsters, ask us oldies some questions, Phil has a wonderful collection of photos, surely you have got questions to ask about your family, past, or anything related to such.

John

If there is one thing I don't want to know and that is about my family history. The little I know about it's modern day history I want to keep quiet. I will agree with you we desperately need new members and we need to keep the momentum going.

Morning all,
Sunny and dry here today on the costa del Brighton, I'm off to Eastbourne for a ramble around and maybe Hastings.
Where are all the ladies lately,Denise and Lyn have not entered the photo competition, is it because of the subject content ?
I made a huge bread pudding on Saturday, soaked in half a bottle of Jack Daniels, and gave all our girls slices, a hangover in every slice,
I'm sure Rachel and Angie were staggering, mind you they did have 2 squares each.
Have a nice day .

Hello all.
Just been reading the last few posts. Hope this forum doesn't fold it would be a shame to see it go. I know I don't say much on here ( I don't say alot any where ) So I will try and put some more input onthe forum in the future, work permitting.

Hi Chris

As I keep saying nobody is expected more to put more time on here than they can spare. Everybody has their own life to lead, I'm luckier than most because I have so much spare time (if you can call it luck). The main problem as I see it which I have also stated before is a shortage of members. So if anybody has any suggestions how to remedy that then I am willing to listen. If we could only double our regular posters I think this would put an end to our problem.

Hello Phil.
Personally I think there are to many threads going on within the forum.
When I first joined I was a bit overwhelmed by it, I didn't know where to post at first. most of it could be done on "Open all hours thread"
Well that's my humble opinion any way[Let Me Think]

Frothy

In my opinion there is some merit to what you say, and I did ask in my last site survey if anybody thought that the the site needed to be trimmed and the reply I got was it was fine as it is. Though I think if we are still around in June I will trim one or two of the boards and threads not being utilised. Though if you look at some of the other Forums they have as many if not more boards on their front page than we have. I would like it however if our front page sat comfortably within a computer screen without the need to scroll up and down.

Started off nice and sunny, turned grey and chilly in Hastings, here's what's left of the pier, can't see much to restore, looks like a Weston-super-mare job to me , a complete re-build if they can raise the money.

Phil, believe it or not ,it was owned by some piss-pot company in South America who no one has heard from in over 5 years, they don't know if it was insured.
