Let's ignore the multiple usernames per person and have automated e-mail notification for posts like 'other forums'. Without checking feasibility. Sooner or later you have to get off the roundabout. I'm going off now to another forum. It looks mighty and I'll get e-mail notifications if I tick the box, but they know fk all about sports."
Verifying ID isnt a good thing. There is only so far private companies should be allowed access to info.
Other forums far bigger than this can manage without verifying ids.
What forums are you suggesting know f all about sports?
Better features allow better discussion. Allowing instant posting is better than pre moderation. have report button to report posts that people feel breach the rules of the forum. very simple.
why would people not want that or have all moderators listed?
Nobody knows who are all the moderators on the forum?

You dont have to subscribe to the emails if you dont want. You have the option to.
Do any of ye not use any other forums? Have ye not seen what other sites have and here is lacking?

What does that mean?

Why are so many scared of moving to a format for the forum that brings it into line with the majority of forums worldwide. Why do so many want to stay stuck in the past.

Admin any chance you could shut this thread? Absolutely painful stuff. Suggestions have been made. Leave it be.

Nobody is 'scared' about using a website. There's literally 12 pages explaining this. You don't like the simple format, others do.

Why is everything for you painful? Are you able to use other words?
Why cant the moderators respond in the thread to the suggestions of various posters. Then at least you know what the admin/moderators think about it. If they give a response i may stop but until then who are you to say what should and shouldnt be posted?

Why do people not want to have better features.
Improvements would see more join the site. Is that not a good thing?

Why do people not want better features though as it stops many others from joining as the site is terribly outdated. Have you ever used more modern web forums?

I am not the one who set up 2 usernames to back up my own ideas. And using one of those fake accounts to accuse me of bullying again. Tiresome, painful, that's what this thread is now. Painful, painful painful.

You can read the previous 12 pages for those answers. Remember, your opinion on what is 'better' is completely subjective and not a universal truth.

Alternatively, you could spend that time learning the skills needed to build the web forum you want and are passionate about. There's a mountain of tutorials on YouTube.

I realise there's a perception out there that GAA people are backwards mucksavages but amazingly, yes, I have actually used 'modern web forums'. In Westmeath we've been using Google since 2017 and haven't looked back since :)

This is hilarious. How is any account a fake account? Do you not mean another word as how is the account fake in any way?
And is your vocab that limited that you can only use 'painful' to criticise people.
That the thread is still continuing shows the forum needs to be revitalised. Are you really saying websites like boards.ie, gaaboard.com etc are not better looking and functionally better.

Even how to post links is outdated. Surely that could be updated.

Sure Ormond. These random people just haooend to join and support you. One poster went into remarkable detail putting forward his suggestions. Amazing since he is a new poster. Some would say unbelievable.

Also when I use the same words or phrases that annoy you a smart man might wonder why I keep repeating them?

Lastly the last time you tried to give a lesson on grammar here it went spectacularly wrong for you. Here you are suggesting I expand my vocabulary. I would suggest you read the first 2 lines of your post and perhaps rewrite them in English. Thanks.

Which poster are you claiming is mine?
You are seriously obsessed with me Its rather strange how much you are obsessed with me.
I will again suggest you expand your vocab as you use the same words over and over again. Why cant you say something else? Are you capable of doing it?
I have made mistakes and admitted to making them. Something you have never once done on this site so get off the high horse you love sitting on
