It doesn't make any difference whether you get one or ten new members a day. All you have to do is be on line, if you are running a forum you should be.

Nick as are probably aware I don't do game posts, This is probably why I am on moderation apart from a few other things. The reason I asked the question was, I wouldn't like the forum to close. I did put lots of suggestion to the owner to encourage new and old members to get back on the forum but heard nothing. Also Nick I think it is you who is keeping this forum alive.

Once again I would like to ask the owner of this forum what are his intensions. I can help, I have offered before. I know what this forum needs to be as good as others if not better.

Is there anyone who owns this forum, someone must know. I am here to help if you need.

Hi Tom you have probably tried Ancestry at a guess, but if you can add other names it really works.

Hi and welcome to all new members. I myself am a member of a few forums and think its great way to communicate and have fun with others. You will never know who you might find on the forums, so join in the fun, you never know where it will take you. All you have to do is post and I'm sure someone will reply, the more the better.
Members will look forward to reading and answering all your posts as best as possible.

nickcc Don't get your hopes up. This is a story that goes back to the early 60s. We had a dog can't remember his name, lovely dog but kept running away from home, bit like me. This time it was winter of early 60s he had gone again. Now the story starts My dad used to play dominos for the Harlequin it was a Wednesday because that was dominos night. The Harlequin was playing at the Toby snow was on the ground and it was freezing. There were no buses to the Toby from where I lived and my dad didn't drive. About 9 o'clock my dad walked in with this dog that looked like it had been pulled through a hedge backwards. This dog had someway found his way into the Toby and my dad recognised it and brought it home. Not forgetting it was about 45 mins walk and it was snowing and freezing. My dad liked cats not dogs. Cant remember if he ever walked back to the Toby.

The Hole in the wall. I know I have been in there, but cant remember where it was. Was it Dale end? As for the Toby Jug that is still going I have been told. I got a story about the Toby Jug if you would be interested.

Coming from Shard End my locals were The Harlequin, Timberley, Packhorse, Two Hands, Coach and Horses, Cheshire Cat, Trident. All gone but one. I may have posted this on another thread but it won't hurt.

I have been wondering for awhile now, who is running this forum. On the 19th of November I had an Email off the administrator Aaron stating that he was going to look at the forum, I have not seen or heard of him since. If it wasn't for Nickycc stopping trolls this forum would be in a lot of trouble. As for the owner I cant work him out, I offered to help with the forum but that's as far as I got. Perhaps someone else can shed some light.

Trees? you HAD trees? talk about moneybags!

I never even knew what a tree was until I left Nechells, I thought they were giant pencils.
I mean, if you're going to come on here flaunting your wealth..

And as for Roller Skates, you rarely found a pair of wellies that would fit inside them,
We were REAL men in Nechells, we made Go-karts and nail guns, we made slate tomahawks and nail tipped arrows and bows.

We had to, otherwise the rent man knocked our door for money.

Kandor No wonder everybody moved out of Nechells.

The other Sunday I decided to have a walk around old Digbeth. Bradford Street Rea Street and Cheapside. The Queens Arms is still standing but only just all boarded up. So I thought I would see if one of my old haunts was still standing.The Moseley Arms. When I got to the top of Bradford Street and turned right I was happy to see it still there and open. Once inside my happiness turned to sadness. It had been changed beyond  recognition, Although the owners had done a fantastic job it just wasn't the same for me.
