The old Gasroom was never taken seriously as a barometer for fans' opinions, as it was I believe, always seen as a forum of the few. It seems to me that this new version has been a great success so far...are you able to say how many have registered, so we really know the strength of it??

  • Seems like 163 have registered so far from looking at the activity page.
  • Furthermore, does this forum have the capacity for polls? It strikes me that the club could do a lot worse than to embrace a community like this now that a lot of the nonsense has hopefully been cut out. A poll every now and then might really give them some useful (if somewhat informal) statistics to gauge what fans think.
  • Does it matter that the Gasroom wasn't taken seriously as a barometer for fans' opinions? It'd be disappointing to me if Gasroom 2.0 became some sterile horror with everyone agreeing and being reasonable.

    There's always room for a well argued row or 'bit of nonsense' to keep things entertaining.
  • One minor thing I think would be useful - although it may not be possible - is the ability to quote other posts (without having to cut and paste manually). Having lost the nested replies feature from the original Gasroom, this would give a good indicator when you're replying to a particular comment.
  • If we can get up to 400 registered and active users, we will have approx 10% of our regular home attendance posting on this forum. I don't think that should ever be dismissed as a barometer for fans' opinions!
  • Can I suggest some forum subdivisions?

    Wind Up Merchants - for pre-match banter

    Tucker Chump's Tactics Truck - for pseudo expert post-match analysis. May want to check with SMBU whether they will allow their meat purveyor to sponsor it!

    Brownie's Camera - for historic archive pictures and picture competitions.
  • Good call Tory. I was thinking that would be the best way myself.

    Probably need none football related one as well for all the Power station, Piers and Music related stuff.

    I also need one on Coal mining and the eternal damage Thatcher done to the countries Mining communities.

  • @drcongo I really should do more work, but its even more addictive as everytime I see the Yellow flash new I have to read it and that's makes me more inclined to respond!

  • @Tory_Goon for Tucker Chump's Tactics Truck section should there be a sub folder for those who want to pontificate about failings despite 'not being able to get to the game'?

    @drcongo top stats!

  • Reading other peoples forums mainly to get opposing fans opinions on how we played before vital posted them i see a lot of them have "off topic" sections
  • Exactly what @M3G said - those darned yellow NEW icons really do make it almost addictive to click on the thread to see what wonderful new nugget of information/tedious drivel has been posted since last checking.

  • I think an off-topic section might be a good idea. Saw some really interesting things on the old gasroom that would promptly be shouted down for not having enough of a connection to Wycombe Wanderers.

  • Ive Been on the receiving end of the "purists" and am still recovering

  • Who the hell is reading this stuff in Iceland ? (Presumably that's Iceland the country rather than the HW branch of Iceland purveyors of frozen cholesterol )

  • edited February 2015

    Can we call the off-topic section "Piss drenched chinos", rightfully putting it where it belongs?

  • If Monsoon ever appears on here there will have to be a Yoyoyoyoyo section, covering away kits and Sky adjusted kick-off times.

  • Can we have a section purely for Tattler and Devon Chairboys?

    Your wish is my command.

  • It's like magic this new forum

    But I still can't fathom out the Activity thing .

    Wowzers, top stuff! Don't suppose there's a winning lottery number predictor feature you could enable for us, or maybe a button that displays a random Rachel Riley picture on screen? I'm a simple chap, I don't need much to make me happy...

  • I think someone asked in a different thread if you got the Christmas light box off the Gas Man?

  • I haven't got the xmas lights box I'm afraid. It was stuck behind the water tank.

  • Prepare for the backlash to begin!! ;)

  • I'll pick up some budget secular holiday lights from Lidl and put them up in June.

    I'd vote for the Rachel Riley button

  • A sub section for tatics would be nerdtastic, and probably my new home. Also a section for players of Football Manger, they can discuss how they have brought messi and Ronaldo and if they can do it why can't Gareth.โšฝ

    I pity any female visitors who stumble on here to view close ups of KeithBarret's chest wig ... You can almost smell the brut 33 dripping off the page

  • I also second a football manager sub section. I'm currently battling to keep Wycombe in the Championship in the year 2020. The only original player I have left is Pierre, although I only just shipped Ingram out this season.

    Sorry. I just nerded out to the max there.
