    We have no figures for Queen Mad as data dumped during last update - we are just holding our head above water with around 500 visitors each day - we like pie and bovril are being hammered by twitter and facebook - you have a choice if you wish an independant voice on Queen of the South then this site provides it - we have been running for 17 years now so we hope for your continuing support !

    Seems a bit like flogging a dead horse here . Some hard core fans have tried hard to keep this going but seems to be in vain. I remember the last ' call to arms' with lots of people vowing to keep the site going . They then proceeded to do the opposite and dissappear again , just as I thought they would.

    I am repeating myself here Shanty but I pointed out previously when FM made alterations about a year ago quite a few
    regulars could not get back on to the site for some reason - GB1, Toffeehamer, Gordon Harper are 3 that I personally know and there will be others I suspect.

    No one has approached me about unable to get back on the site - if they contact me I will do my best to get them back on.

    This is utter nonsense - there have not been wholesale bans on this site - there is freedom of speech on this site and everyone can have their say if they obey the rules of decency.

    I would much rather post on this site than some of the others which consistently appear to descend into petty shouting/bickering exchanges between ignorant individuals which has no relevance nor interest to the rest of us. As far as I can see there are also no issues with the freedom of expression on this site and generally attracts higher quality posters than the more public orientated sites.

    It seems to me to have swung back and forward over the years whereby one site or the other has descended into the realms of abuse and bickering for a while while the other has flourished. This site seems to be on the up just now and long may it continue. I like the way this site is divided into threads. People also seem to be better at including the op in replies. Find it harder to keep track over on P&B.

    I thank you for your support Spike - For those that prefer constant slagging and abuse of players and officials using vile language then this is not the forum for you - there are plenty of other avenues including facebook/twitter which cater for this sort of thing.

    The reformed Truthhurts echoes the comments on here. The smug "P&B" site is crap noo.

    Youíre welcome. I of course will continue to post drivel on both. Iíll avoid the bickering though. Itís tedious and not worthy of genuine fans.

    On a further note, as an Ďexpatí albeit only in Fife, Iíve found this site to be a great way to keep up with and ask questions about Dumfries past and present. I know there are other fora for this but the feedback on here for OT posts has always been good.

    I enjoy this site (and not just the predictor). There were IT issues a while back which meant I would get get engulfed in ads but this seems to have got better recently. Thanks to all who keep it going, I'll try to add my tuppenceworth from time to time.
    I tend to look at both this site and Pie and Bovril. The advantage of P&B is that opposing fans can join in and make contributions. The disadvantage of P&B is that opposing fans can join in and make contributions......
    Keep up the goodfwork

    Thanks for your support - the issue with ads has been dealt with and various IT issues are being addressed by a new editor of the group which runs the Footymad sites.

    We are always willing to listen to suggestions as to improve the sites.

    The main problem is that fans have forgotten/mislaid their passwords and also in some case usernames - it would be prudent in the future to look after the security of such information - Footymad have been contacted and are aware of the situation.
