Feedback on new site thread

Sorry to hijack the thread but can we now unpin the other posts?

All it needs is the Rules/Admin post & this one
^ this.

Have to scroll past 5 sticky posts and a near full screen advert on mobile every time you go back to main page. The posts haven’t been updated in weeks, some cases months.

A single sticky post with custom title that can be edited could hold links all these threads and have the rules pinned on top

I’m aware another poster has flagged this dodgy advert, but it has just appeared mid-thread for me.

I'm conscious of the fact that advertising generates revenue for this site but for me there is a distinction between genuine adverts for products and services vs clickbait. Too much of the "advertising" on here falls into the later category.
Surely the administration have some control over what they deem as acceptable.

I think a feedback thread is worth being 'sticky' if posters can discipline themselves to use it rather than raising stuff with new posts.

It was probably you who suggested it before but why not one sticky with links to relevant threads in it and no facility to comment on it - much tidier, other threads still available to read/comment on.

It was me, suggested it about 5 times now but think Rob just enjoys having people scroll past 5 dead topics to get to the content every time they use the forum instead of focusing on user interface 😂

Rules in the post, FMTTM subscription info then links to boro schedule, the iCal subscription link, support you can get, sponsoring players and so on

Is it staying like this? I feel like this is even worse as there are still 3 stickies on the main forum

Seems straightforward to me, have one sticky thread called Rules, Announcements & Important Topics

In there put the rules. Links the fixture list, urls to buy tickets, the cal link for fixtures and links to the important topics; then if anyone comments on those threads they rise to the top, if they don’t they fall away naturally

Lock the post then only admins can comment to it and make that the one sticky topic

If you’re gonna do subforum, better to do it for politics so people can ignore that than for sticky topics

Since yesterday, the forum has been displaying at about 60% of the screen width on my Android 11 phone.
Tried various different browsers and all are showing the same issue.

@fmttmadmin how about a quiz and trivia section Rob? Or at least a mega thread for them all, there are like 5 genuine and 2 parody threads on the front page right now Todays wordle, worldle, nerdle, quordle etc obviously it's popular but it's taking over a bit

Can something be done about the search facility please? It took me ages to find a thread because the words I was searching for were common ones which is fair enough I suppose. I could search for all my own posts easily enough but by narrowing it down by putting those 'common' words in the subject line it was telling me that it couldn't find anything because the words are too common even though it was a more restrictive search than 'all posts by me'.
