Hoganstand.com forums

I lurked previously but registered just tonight. I find it utterly bizzare that the forums 'close' at 10pm. I'm fabergasted, the internet has closing times now?

Apparently it used to be a 24 hour forum.

An associate of mine was banned from boards.ie for saying that Hogan Stand was a far superior forum.

I thought it was grand from my experience with it. Helpful posters.

The have a really good forum, very lively and with mostly genuine fans. To be fair it's more specialised than here. Although the GAA forum here has improved immensely.

All comments have to be approved by a moderator before being shown so as to avoid trolling, spam, etc. There'd hardly be a ton of posts between 10pm and 9am the next morning anyway, so you wouldn't miss much, but there's no point having them force mods to stay up all night to approve posts.

He's probably the biggest WUM on the entire forum. He's also one of these idiots who has multiple identities

I think the 10pm limit was put on because 10pm is the bedtime of the average Hoganstand poster!!!

No, its because they all have to tune into Failte Isteach and have Donnacha read out their dedications.

It's actually an awful forum riddled with 5 year old kids thinking they are funny.

The only thing I find it useful for is local GAA results

It's good too a point for underage football from my experience because - all the users are pretty much underage players... - but then you've also got to read all the post saying micky joe smith or bobby mick reilly was amazing today posted by micky joe smith himself to get himself a bit of praise

I used to use it for club results but since a club in the county set up a far superior page for results and fixtures that's updated as soon as the referee submits the scores I've stopped using hoganstand...
