Thread: What's happened to this forum

  1. #41
    I have been reading a forum for a long time, but I do not feel the need to write and discuss with people. In my opinion, there is one sad reason, people from forums are moving to facebook. Of course, specialist knowledge can only be obtained on forums.
    I watch this on football forums, my favorite EVE Online game and on the forum related to my work.

    Fit you talking about min, the OT Board isn't dying, it's thriving. Check out the cricket thread where I basically talk to myself and make garbage predictions

    I wasn't here when this site was in it's prime so don't really have anything to compare it to but I don't feel it's that bad. Plenty ways to avoid the adverts no matter what platform you are using to view it. Usually quite busy on match days, it's got some pretty clued up posters here (it's always the first place I check if there is some gossip doing the rounds). We've got kong with all the stats we could possibly need and the Europa threads are always fun although the recent one has turned in to a petty argument of sorts for some reason.

    Off topic is a bit slow but could be good fun if we can persuade a few lurkers to join in.

    Ach this place is alright. Keeps me busy offshore

    As said above there is a fine mix. Some annoying as f@ck and I did bite big time at on point. Nae looking at anyone in particular "Mr Coefficients are magic Celtic must win". But there are decent folks too.

    There is so much social media these days something was always gonna give and this place has taken a hit as its a stone age social media

    Ach this forum is okay. Much prefer this to the other sites. Read it on my iPad and Laptop, Ad-Blocker saves all the crap coming up. Definitely a lot quieter than a few years ago though.

    For me this is probably the best of the 3 sites being talked about but it's far from ideal. For a start it's completely dead on here after 11pm nowadays, which is no use to night owls like myself, but then again, there's nowhere near the number of posters there once was.
    I've got to say the anti-McInnes thing also gets a bit tiresome, especially when quite a lot of the posters still feel the need to justify their hatred of the guy even when we've just won a game; there's no enjoyment in that for me. It's good to discuss the positives after a victory as we've had more than our fair share of shyte to put up with in the past 20 years or so, but I'm also happy to criticise when it's deserved i.e. not every week.

    AFC Chat has quite a lot of the original posters from here but it's also full of numpties and I can't be arsed with some of the nonsense being spouted on there.

    Dons Talk has potential but the last time I looked the posts were far too slow to get any kind of banter going.

    Quiet at moment as most of the regular posters are staking out Greggs to be first to identify and confirm new signings.

    I still think it is the best Dons site although some "Morrice the butcher's brither 2018" lavatorial literature would be a welcome addition.

    I still much prefer this forum to football on Facebook or twitter ( especially twitter which I will never understand - relying on wee erchie to tell me the team on way to the match )

    I do despair sometimes with the pro Aberdeen anti Scotland stuff but perhaps if Shinnie makes his long deserved Scotland debut in a couple of hours we might see a bit more positivity ,especially as we are seeing Aberdeen and other non glesca clubs players getting a look in.

    Whilst this place has lost a few good posters recently (it went downhill a year or two back when it was murder to log in due to technical issues), its the best of the 3.

    AFC chat is choc full of roasters talking absolute sh1te.
    DonsTalk seems a bit slow?

    So Id say this is the best one.
