I am delighted with how busy the forum has been over the last two months. When December comes around we usually have a lull as Christmas approaches but that never happened this year. 2010 is our 7th year and I am determined that it'll be our biggest year yet. With the world cup the year after we have a lot of planning and preparing to do and a lot of time in which to do it. I want to cup my ears, a la Hulk Hogan, to you, members of TRF. You're the reason we're here, you're our present and future, many of you a part of the past as well. What do you want to see from TRF this year? As one of the owners, I'll tell you what I want: - I want to get a decent war chest. I have no money, Mite has no money and Charlie has no money, we're living off donations at the moment. I hate asking members for money but I am going to have to have a big donation run at some point this year because if we run out, I cannot simply start to pay for it every month out of my own pocket. - I want to change the software we use to power the board. The forum software has served us well over the years but it requires a lot of work. I am looking at VBulletin. This is going to be a pain for us but ultimately I am 100% confident that it will improve your experience of TRF as a whole. I refer you to the Liverpool FC website my friend owns: www.liverpoolway.co.uk I intend to keep our frontpage look but the forums will look similar to this. Obviously I will have different skins to choose from. The revamp of the forum was great, 18 months ago, it really was. But it's got things broken that we just either can't or don't have the time to fix it. The problem with the rep system being a perfect example. It might sound like dropping a nuclear bomb on an ant, but I think a total revamp is the way forward for TRF. Me, Charlie and Chris are going to discuss this over the course of the weekend because it's something we need to sort out, but if it can be done I want it to be done soon. - I intend to recruit more people to write articles. Poor O'Ro gets snowed under with them. Give me your ideas TRF. It's your forum.
