I must admit I'm not a regular poster but I do enjoy reading the debate and feedback from city fans from games on the match day thread but there seems to be very little contribution these days with the page count barely going into double figures. There was a time when we would get somewhere between 30 and 50 pages which I would enjoy reading on a Sunday. I know we usually get more posts when it is doom and gloom but with such a great start I was expecting to see more. Could it be that more people are using social media rather than web based forums.

One reason. which I myself forgot, is that there are now 20 posts per page, double the previous set up. But I'm sure some people have turned to other social media, too.
It's good that you enjoyed reading the MDT : perhaps you could send in your thoughts more frequently to boost the numbers so that we can enjoy your posts as much as you enjoy ours.

Oh right, more posts on a page, not so bad then. I will try to contribute a bit more.

It's easier to access by phone now, which is far better since the update. Hopefully that'll bring people back too

If you ever happen to look back at an old post you do wonder what happened to many of the posters. As mentioned above I suspect FB and Twitter may have taken over.

It might be an idea for Exeweb to send out messages to posters who have gone AWOL saying that they are valued contributors and Exeweb would love to have them back Many businesses do that, including Exeter City.

Have you seen the firm cheeked one recently ?
No sir. Assuming you are recalling nice_firm_bum_cheeks>3

Guilty of the sin of multitude IIRC. I believe Divvy, Spankers and wemissmoxey were the prime suspects. I did receive info that the firm cheeked one used to play Spice Girls songs with Willy Nilly

Didn't Log used to have more accounts on his register than the average bottom maths set at a secondary school in Plymouth ?

He was banned for serious abuse including threats of physical abuse, and multiple transgressions of the rules. I'd rather close Exeweb than have him back.

There's less to moan about these days!
