    Apologies if there is a forum suggestion's thread and I can't see it.

    Just a personal gripe - I think there are too few threads on the Board and there is a tendency for an awful lot of discussion to be confined to larger threads, which I don't think aids discussion. As an example, our NFL Campaign was confined to one thread and yet there were seven different games. I'd like to see a separate thread for each match.

    Another example is in the Club thread. We have a thread marked Senior League, when in reality there are two leagues within - Division 1A and Division 1B. I personally think they should be separated, as would be the case for the Intermediate.

    By the way, this is no reflection on the Admin / Mods, as it is clearly a members / posters issue.

    Anyone any thoughts on this, or am I a lone voice?

    Certainly each division / sub division should have its own thread

    During the championship a per game thread would be good

    Possibly close threads a month after they've concluded e.g. NFL

    Hi @Rufus T Firefly .

    Thanks for the suggestion. Never apologise for trying to be helpful. If it something that's not possible or practical we'll give you an explanation why. We will never take these personally even if it is something that we have done wrong. We're just delighted that you have an interest in how things work.

    To that end I have created two separate threads for each of the Senior and Intermediate leagues. I'm not sure doing the same with junior would be of any benefit. If I'm not right, then someone please feel free to do similar if they wish. I'll edit the titles where necessary.

    Anyone is welcome to make suggestions about what we do or don't do. This can be public or by PM at any time. We've said from the get go that this is for the members and the topics for discussion and how it runs will be determined by the members. Yes we have final say, but we try and stay out of it and let you all get o with it.

    Just a heads up though when I'm replying to this, we are looking at having sponsors and adverts on the site to pay the bills. It'll not be randomly generated ads, but people we have spoken to to bring on board. Three have been lined up already and the rates were extremely attractive to them. Because it is a revenue stream, we will have total control on that.

    Thanks @JoeH I think we'll let the NFL run until a week or two before the Championship begins, but thanks for the suggestion. It's something we talked about doing, but weren't sure if closing them was a good idea. I know on the old county forum, they tended to be a little trigger happy and closed them seemingly just for the sake of it and we want to be more user friendly.

    Again thanks for showing an interest.
