Oh to be honest I haven't checked. I will have a look later.
I was hoping to retrieve all the content but although it looks like that is possible we cannot find anyway of loading up to a xenforo site - other than cut and paste - which could take a long, long, long time. I wonder if anyone at all has any ideas.

Largely depends on the format of the data. If you can get hold of the database itself then it should be fairly simple.

The less structured the data the longer it'll take and the more difficult it will be.

The builders were in this morning. Sorry you don't like circular avatars - got to admit back at the start of the site everyone posted before I could press the setting no avatars - there is always one spoilt sport. ...
I approve of avatars. And the board seems to refresh itself better now.

Has fansonline gone for good? It wasn't just Boro - there was Corridor of Uncertainty for example.

Am really disappointed about it for Corridor of Uncertainty - there are major problems with working on it through the old server. We are still trying to find a way.

Scrote - All the articles are in csv format - not sure about all the message board threads though.

Hi I have a problem posting using Chrome on Android. Sometimes an advert pops up suggesting i might want to install some software. It's positioned below the text entry field, but when it appears it overlaps the post reply button. When this happens my keyboard is still active but what I type doesn't appear in the text window. If I press the 'window' button in Android ( sorry I don't know its technical name) select a different app and then repeat to return to Chrome the text I've typed magically appears. This is very frustrating as usually I think my keyboard's not working and type it again. When I remember the solution and it reappears I often have the same sentence x3.

We have articles now - am hoping we might be able to put together an archive site of sorts in the near future of articles rescued from the old site.
But the next task now is working on making this site fmttm.com again. We are investigating the best means to do that now. Am told it should not take long to achieve.

If you have a look at the "To All The Tory Voters" thread a "new" poster has appeared posting as "Ricard 19" the account has three posts all on that thread yet the account was created on Feb 22. Is this a way that banned posters are able to re-emerge as the rhetoric and trolling are familiar?

The poster, Ricard 19, has engaged in discussion in a reasonable manner, albeit from a point of view not universally popular. He (presumably a 'he') hasn't been abusive. If you don't like it then use the ignore function. Do we want an echo chamber?

The date of joining is the date someone applies - sometimes for one reason or another it can take many months for accounts to be ratified to be able to post. That could maybe the case here.

Just asking if there's been any progress?
Yes - I had word yesterday - a very brief email from Jez the tech guy in charge that he is working on a new cricket forum - I am continuing to push him on this because it is terrible that it has been down for so long. Poor Michael and all the posters. Am hoping we can go across when it opens and really try to boost it at the start.

I think we should be fmttm.com again sometime over this weekend - it almost feels like an AFC Wimbledon situation.
But back home again soon.

I am sure that someone might have suggested this before. However I do not want to wade through 23 pages. Also I cannot think of the right terms to search for.

Have you considered having alternative responses to Like being made available?

The example I have is that @JaenBoro was talking about coronavirus numbers in the place where he works. A response of Like to that does not seem right.

Be great if we can close threads after 2 months of inactivity. Most times it’s people seeking out old posts for a told you so moment, you can always links back to an old thread if needed but pointless bumping things from 6 months ago.
