This needs to be taken down by the mods, how can this be allowed to happen. (Just registered!)

Sad but I think a new forum is the way forward. No new members for ages and two deeply unpopular mods will eventually kill this forum.

Personally have no issues with any mods. I do think the new members situation is an issue for a growing community though and do see why this has been done.

Already there are people posting on the new forum who have been waiting to have accounts activated on here for the past year. rolleyes.gif

Perhaps attitudes like this haven't helped matters!

I am shocked at the alleged number of posters under bans and the large amount of people waiting to be regsitered.

This idea has been mooted for quite some time now, so not a surprise. I am very surprised that Krankie didn't address the issues many posters had. Perhaps after all the time he gave to the start up of the club, he's lost some of the passion? Also XXWB gets to finally change his ridiculous name!

Indeed.

This forum was fantastic back in the day, but for whatever reason the Admin have decided to let the board wind itself down.

In the past 24hrs there have been more posts, and more new members on the new site than there have been on DC in years.

This place is dead.

Yeah, just as well I've picked something nice and sensible this time!

It's sad, but it's not dummy-spitting - it's a valid point that no new members have been accepted for over a year and too many people were getting bans and posts removed for trivial reasons.

From a technical point of view as well, the new forum is mobile friendly and a bit more modern and user-friendly in terms of customising your profile.

Why doesn't the new board break with tradition and have users use their "real" names?,now that would be ground breaking? rolleyes.gif

It's the norm for people to use usernames rather than real names on websites such as Devachat. Any posts revealing personal details such as addresses, telephone numbers etc are usually removed ASAP to help try and protect a persons identity.

All kinds of Spambots regularly visit Devachat and they are capable of harvesting any data they find, for example, to build mailing lists for sending unsolicited mail, also known as spam. The best way to avoid spam is to avoid getting on any spam mailing lists in the first place.

Please take care of your personal data.

I don't see the advantage that either, NFBF. Anyone can use their real name if they wish, but bear in mind that you should be generally careful of where and how you use your real details online. If all people have to do is go into the 'Members' section of the forum and see a real list of names of people using the forum, I think that could be used for nuisance or malicious purposes. I'm willing to bet a number of people on here use 'chester' or 'chesterfc' as their password for something a lot more sensitive than their Devachat account.

I don't think it would change how people post either. Some very vitriolic and stupid stuff is posted on the club's Facebook and Twitter pages, and that IS under their real names!

I'm all for a new forum, not least because it will allow me to waste even more time when I should be working.
BUT, there should not be two Deva Chats. It's confusing. Other clubs have multiple forums, with different names.

How about The Real Deva Chat, or Continuity Deva Chat???

I love that it's also called Devachat and has stolen the logo. Stolen the best mods.
Tens of thousands of views already and hundreds of posts.

It's a new world after Brexit and Trump, the people know they can win against the liberal/Canadian elite be it political or moderational and those who refuse will be left behind.

The real test will be on a Saturday night after we've lost and some of the less able posters have had a few Special Brews and the vitriol stars flowing. Ditto rival fans.
