You absolutely know which people with very little football knowledge and a distinct lack of thinking ability will usually make their way to the post match forums.

They know so much about the game, why the manager is way inferior to their extraordinary knowledge etc etc.. Despite the fact that this is essentially a football site why would any one want to debate with them.

Such people have always existed but in the very old days of the terraces you could walk away from them, now just ignore their posts?

GCC is shadow of its former self, used to be fast paced could take an hour or more to catch up on active threads now it's a few minutes.

Wasted so much work time in the early days reading it.

Without some of the Mods and some great people that contribute helping out the BBS (If they like decisions or not,which deserves a pat on the back) you would be reading the HOL right now if they let you back.

That's probably why you do not have much attachment to this place plus it's a political forum for you,not Palace.

We are trying to keep the old bird going,moderator or poster I prefer this place over others,hobby no.

That's what we are trying to get back again not just one or two threads dictating the atmosphere of the whole place,more of a friendly place to come to like it used to be.

We see that slowly creeping back.

In all seriousness the modding on here is bloody good. Sometimes things get out of kilter but are soon rectified. A hobby? More a ******* nightmare I would have thought.

However having said that a separate 'Politics forum' shows what a bunch of ***** they are (The PR exercise of putting 'Things I have learnt today' back in its rightful home does not deflect from this).

It is. The only thing I would say is that moderation posts ought to be visually distinct from ordinary posts.

There is no comparison between the moderation here and in the other place.

Doesn't say a great deal for the strength of the characters and arguments of the so-called 52% then does it, if they can't hold their own in a backwater like this.

Looking at older posts, it’s amazing how many members don’t seem to post anymore, be it flounced, banned, bored, got a life, or God forbid passed away. Probably inevitable due to the age of the site… it really is creaking around the edges a bit, but still head and shoulders above any other football fan site I have ever seen, be it Palace related or any other teams.

While working I was told that 65% of our company workforce was over 55… I suspect this number is pretty consistent with cpfc.org’s membership at this time.

Maybe we need another administration to stir up the masses!

Thoughts/observations?
I say the BBS is what it is. Come in here or don't come in here. It matters little whether it gets bigger or smaller. IMHO.

If the loss is £1,500 per year, then the overall cash drain will soon mount.

Thinking about it, I don't see why Palace and football related advertising shouldn't be allowed? Probably easier than subscriptions.

Or even ask the club for funding? They could easily afford to subsidise the site, perhaps in exchange for some free advertising?

I have used this site for years but have only posted the last 4-5 years. I’d happily stump up some cash. Looking forward to more info on this per Adler’s post.

Re: funding and costs. What’s the PayPal use? I’ve not seen anything to buy but then I’ve not been here long.
Crowdfunding?
Or ask the club to finance the site as we pretty much select the team every week and keep Dougie informed of potential transfer targets.

We want to be independent from the club plus with some of the abuse they get for not being in Europe yet or winning a world cup I don't think they would want to touch us with a ten foot barge pole .....We are going for an Ad free BBS first where it's down to contributions if not then maybe ,if that does not work
