Make BCB a one page board again.

in reality, all of this has been a total load of old bollocks

Everything should go to Nextdoorland?

Make BCB a one page board again.

Postby Jimbo » 01 Nov 2017, 16:02

I always liked it the old way. It was a livelier board. You check in, see what's happening, music, movies, food, politics all mixed up and then respond or just read. To be honest, I enjoy political and conspiracy banter but I still adore music. Yesterday I wanted to say something about Fats Domino RIP but I was too lazy - or something - acculturated? to bother going to Yakkity Yak. Gave Fats chat a pass. I'm also disinclined to go to the movie page though I always dig seeing what Matt Wilson is up to. Or if I have a computer issue - meh. I don't think I'm alone. Our numbers are fewer now and ---- could it have been the liveliness of the old format which made us mighty back in the day? Did we lose members when we went to the separate topic pages?

Just click on active topics, and you'll have exactly what you want, a mix of topics with a degree of currency. That's what I do. Hardly ever both with the individual boards, unless there's a longueur, or the BCB or Reg Cup is on.
So voted leave it as it is.

Why don't we all just wear animal skins, live in caves and carry clubs around?

Almost brings tears to my eyes. I loved recounting and recollecting sinking my teeth into juicy hamburgers when he'd get on his vegan soapbox.

Memories, good memories.

I enjoyed the one board format at the time too -but that was then.

Because we were started as a music board, the majority of posts then were still about music. We are a very different board now. There are some regular BCB posters who rarely venture into Yakety Yak. If we were to combine the boards, most of the music threads would sink below all the other non-music threads (you'd probably have the word association thread and Sloop talking to himself about basketball permanently at the top) and posters who were here for the music would start to drift away. This way we keep everyone happy (apart from J "start some threads"C).

If you really want to experience the board as one, you can anyway by clicking the "there's always a bit of moaning" sub-header and looking under active topics, like so:

No, you're dead right. Keep music separate, whatever else happens.

To be fair I don't think there is a new posts option is there? There's the active topics we've already mentioned which is the same thing.

I've got a New Posts option as well as Active Topics in the pull-down menu top left, but I think I may be using a different format to most. (??subsilver or something)
