Yesterday I made a short polite response appertaining to the post by `Angel`. This was removed, not looking for a war of words
just curious why.

Ps, Angel doesn`t look very angelic..

Clothes pegs make excellent hair restrainers. Perhaps @Dave would like to investigate Maggotdrowning branded versions.

Unfortunately a lot of fishing forums have come and gone over the course of the past 20 years.
It's not that hard to launch a forum. it's maintaining it that presents the challenge and dealing with the growth if it takes off.
A great hosting package and the associated technical support is an absolute must, and increased traffic and the ability to handle it inevitably bumps the cost of that. couple that to a user friendly platform that's easy to use on a range of devices and you're heading in the right direction.
Above all though, It's the users and their interaction with others that make any forum what it is. as they are the ones who provide the content which generates the interest.
Inevitably members come and members go, it's maintaining an upward trend over a period of time that dictates the success or otherwise. ;)

VIAGRA !

Hello 'Pomp' sorry I didn't see your reply so can't comment, btw looks can be deceptive they say, you don't look very 'pompous'.

And i.m.o what caused TF to go downhill as quickly as it did was a handful of posters who in the end were injecting their own personal vendettas into virtually every thread whatever the subject matter.
Thankfully this forum is much better moderated- at least two of the main culprits from TF have been banned from here.
my problem with both TF and MFS was the clique that surrounded Keefy Arthur and were utter sycophants.
He really wasn't quite as big an expert on everything in the world as he made out.
