Replying To KillingFields:  "Im not at all ruining the forum. give over with the hyperbole
I regularly change user name. I for a short while had 2 usernames on go same time but not for some time but there is a lot more than 1 person on this site using multiple log ins at the same time and im far from only person "ruining the forum" if thats whats considered ruining the forum"
Maybe you could answer a question for me? Well 2. What is the point of having more than one username? Or changing the one you have?

He can make a comment, then reply agreeing with himself, adding a green thumb.

I change my username every so often because i lose access to email accounts that i register them with for variety of reasons and to break things up.
I post things that are jumped on immediately because its me who is posting. a second account wont necessarily gather the same vitriol so its handy in that way.

I never jump on a post on account of the poster. And even if people do that to you it's an anonymous forum why would it matter?

Forum is only as reliable as its posters, everything is secondary.

I'm not on too many forums so I'm not sure if it's normal but I find the timekeeping here leaves a queer amount to be desired.
Some posts are put up immediately, others could take two hours, 8/9 hours if you post at nightime, I wonder if there's any way admin could let us know when we post how long it will be before it's displayed?
It's just very annoying when you're debating not knowing if /when your reply will be published.

I do think this is overall a good form but you make good points there, another thing is censorship and editing of posts that don't break house rules for fear of upsetting the sensitive. I'm on this site 8 or 9 years I have 1020 posts now but I would guess a quarter of my posts were not let on the thread and some of my posts were edited which mis-represented my points on a couple of occasions. I feel if someone takes time to write a piece and it's not left up on a forum, administrators should give the courtesy of an explanation why it wasn't.

Replying To Loughduff Lad:  "There are many others out there that are far better, a google search of GAA forums will show you. A lot of old HS posters have gone to them. even some county only forums have a far better layout than this and they wouldn't have the traffic or resources of here. HS is still popular compared to others as it was one of the first and established and that's how it's hanging on."
What forums are these?

TFK "The free kick" is well worth a look..
Its very good, utterly chaotic, and you wouldn't want to be sensitive but at least you can post your opinion on something without the mods sanitising every second word in case some poor dear is offended.
No need for numerous accounts either, just be prepared to stand over what you wrote.

I'm as weary as anyone about the controls being placed on speech and debate in our new "enlightened" society but unregulated anonymous online forums are just pointless, I took one look at that TFK yoke, what a mess, makes us HS posters look like scholars and that's bloody saying something.

What forums are you suggesting are unregulated?
Any of boards, TFK(though i dont have much experience using that site to speak of it) are all regulated, moderated forums just the mods allow all posts and then take action if necessary

Well if they allow all posts they're not really regulated.
I'm sure there's someone running it but from looking at it briefly it wouldn't be for me anyway.
