Andy, change the forum style in your User Control Panel settings. Select either of the Subsilver styles. Then you can have the forum back as it used to be!

If I'd been here to vote (as well as winning all the awards, haha) - Patty would've got a few votes from me. I'd have demanded a "member who laughs the most at my posts" award to make sure she won a 2nd gong....

I know what you're saying. The return of the older, user-friendly design option will help get things back a bit (already it's feeling more like the old place again), but the 'net has also moved on apace in the last year; twitter and facebook seem to be the preferred places for a lot of people. Including Miss T herself.

Totally agree. But there was also another important fact: when Stephen left the forum... I remember when i saw his username in almost all topics... :(

(But female version came back some months ago...) :smt023 :mrg:

My observation from an outsider (because I only have been here for a year and 300 posts), is that the participation dropped off quite a bit during the period when KT wasn't making music or doing interviews. I don't think the new forum skin helped, but I don't think it was the main reason. When I backfilled on the history of this forum, it seemed obvious the end of her 2008 tour was a dividing line of sorts. When an artist drops off the radar for an extended period, the casual fans tend to move on.

The reminder to keep threads on topic last week sort of hinted that regular forumers won't post as much if threads frequently go off topic. I'm not sure I agree with this but I could see it being a point of frustration for those who are already frustrated by the forum design, lack of participation, etc. Because I am off topic, I'll stop here. I think it would be good to take Andy's post and turn that into the anchor of a whole new thread.

I know I left, but that was through illness.... typing was an issue... couldn't do it :lol: and the origanal df one drove my eyes mad :lol:
To be honest I can't remember when I left I think it was 2 years ago but its all a haze or strong pain medication...

Thanks you lot!

Well done Claire for putting a lot of effort into this, glad you got some recognition!

Very flattered at getting noticed by a fair few of you lovely people who I've been fortunate enough to get to know in the last year. I actually missed these awards, shamefully enough, but would have gone for Simon and Teena in the newcomer category. A fellow painted baldy and a fully tiger suited lady are pretty hard to beat!

Well done to anyone who won, was considered or just feels part of this place. I haven't been here very long but appreciate the welcoming vibes from many a nutjob whether it's here, other social/antisocial web places(!) or at KT's gigs (naturally, the best place to meet people, or just be!).

Thanks again.

Hello Steve, I must have missed you joining while I was away between October and now, so a belated welcome!

As much as I agree with Andy that this place ain't quite the same as it was in the glory days of 2005-2008, I'm seeing enough familiar faces coming back this past few days to feel less pessimistic about things. Quite frankly, I think the major tech probs from the EMI hack and then the hugely user-unfriendly redesign just put a load of regulars off. Once word spreads that you can use it as before, just by changing the preferences, more of the regulars will return. But in this world of Twitter and Facebook, forums like this will struggle a bit, because forms of 'net communication appear to have moved on (and not for the better, really).

TBC.
