Quins have abandoned ship!

Left Sportnetwork for pastures new.

TTFN

Are people as hacked off on this board? Any lurkers who would read/post more often if on a different no advert platform?

Whenever I look at this site without an adblocker the ads are annoying and incredibly distracting. And, I have to say, the new Quins board is much better looking than Sportnetwork, which I don't remember having much of a makeover in all the time I've been a member. (Just checked and I joined in 2007, so that's a good long while.)

Only if we made a rugbynetwork part two with all the other clubs joining. Would likely require an effort from all the admins from their respective club sites. Anyway I'm unsure if Quins' departure is all due to ads however, have a feeling there's more.

I did suggest to the Mods on OTIB that a rugby subforum might be an idea. The build of this website is so dated its painful.

Bristol Rugby is not a subset of Bristol City and does not need a subforum on a City website.

If there's a rebrand to TTIB, sure...

The dwindling user base suggests otherwise.

Didn't see that come across, who did you suggest it to?

Understand that the rugby fans should have their own forum etc, but for those who have not seen the football one, compare www.otib.co.uk to this place

I mentioned it ages ago in fairness. I think the rugby should have their own forum, absolutely, but given this seems to be the only one (which they also don't own) an alternative on OTIB which uses technology from this century might be more encouraging to new users than this one.

It was just a suggestion anyway, not sure why Dave is having a cry over it.

Do you mean a dwindling user base on here? Is this true? It's always very quiet in the summer

Agree completely, I'm not sure who looks after this site, but would be well worth them having a chat with Tom that looks after OTIB

It is always quiet in the summer, we don't put out any news and we don't have an ongoing world cup to talk about. No new departures or signings unlike City as well.
