I was recently going through some older threads, we've lost some good early posters over the years... Likka, Lidge, Carlos..
Bigfooty is getting to the age where eventually regular posters will start dying of old age. Not quite yet, but in the next 10 years it will probably begin happening.
A poster on the Carlton board called The Cranium also died quite a few years as well.
Crackers as well
I should clarify that when I said "we've lost some good early posters over the years", I wasn't referring to people who had died, although yes Lidge did pass away. It was more a general comment about good posters in the early days who have since left the forum.Asgardian, Toots..
Neither was the presence of social media and other discussion platforms like reddit that dominate today. It's not as easy as one might think to have a fourm survive within the climate but bigfooty has. No doubt phones play a part.
