    Wh00t! It's been a while since I've done that!

    Good luck with the forum.

    Bah! Vex beat me to it by a minute! If it wasn't for a database error I'd be in there like a shot.

  • The man beat you to it. :) I call Junior Vice President! Best of luck with the giving up of zee smoking chums.




  • The idea for creating this very board has been shot down so many times in the past.
    So they finally cracked eh?
    Wonder what changed their minds.




  • This post has been deleted.




  • Good luck with the new forum, lads.

    I saw this referenced in the thread requesting this forum also, and am wondering where this impression comes from. This was the first time I have seen this forum requested, I found a request from 2004 with little support but nothing else, any chance you could point me a few of these threads so I can see what the reasons were in the past.

    Thanks

    tbh I couldn't be bothered rooting around for old threads, not with the search feature the way it is.
    As I recall from the older thread no reason was ever given, just a blank 'No. End of story.' then later threads were pretty much ignored by the admins.
    I'm not sure if we even had a 'Forums' forum at the time... you might find it on Feedback somewhere.




  • This is what I found.

    Feedback - Oct 2003 - Ex Smoker forum is requested - Declined

    Forums - 8 Sept 2004 Members helping members - 5 yes including the OP, last post on thread 11.09.04 - thread moved to declined/approved 22.08.05

    Current thread - approved.

    Forums forum created May 2004

    Yeah that sounds familiar alright...
    I am seriously wondering if we need a forum to support [ex-smokers] and those trying to stop smoking.
    The thread ended with what I thought at the time was a very abrupt no.
    I was left with the impression that Dev didn't want to touch this topic with a barge pole.
    Maybe I took it up wrong, or maybe I'm talking out of my arse... it certainly wouldn't be the first time for either.

    Kudos on the forum anyway.




  • No probs, I occasionally see similar comments on other threads, some I can understand where boardies might think we could have an issue , legal highs - and Hemp related forums:), others like giving up smoking I dont understand where the perception comes from. I was just curious to know if there was a History or reason why the forum was not created.

    Like most things, as boards evolves, things change - I could see us removing certain words from the word censor for instance, as online etiquette changes and the use of this language online catchs up with the way it is spoken everyday.
