      Douglas,
      I haven't banned anything. I sent  an email to your personal email account.

       

      Tom

  2. Were you and I not supposed to have a pow-wow?

     

    Here is my e-mail address: for any other ways of you communicating with me have obviously failed.

     

    [email protected]

     

     

  3. Could you set up a place where I could talk to you off - line?   Frankly you need to talk to anyone, not just me, about powers you assume we have, but don't, and what you are going to do about it.  Your 'complaint' about having your meal in NYC interrupted would be more convincing if you had dealt with devolving authority.  Which you haven't done to my immediate knowledge.

    You need a fora for folk like me who work on this site to ask you questions. They are not onerous, they are obvious, but require your steer.

    Please provide that.

      Fair enough Tom. You probably thought, as did I, that this site is worth saving.  And we both put our names forward. And then we went "Wow!", we have been given a live hand grenade.

      So, I am in an exactly the same position as you.

      I do not understand how this site is supposed to work and frankly how it works. (For instance, I haven't a clue whether this is being read by you alone, you and other moderators, or the entire membership. Neither do I understand what my role is supposed to be. I thought I knew what a moderator was, but apparently not. )

      I would be happy to meet you. I am not at all reluctant to do so.  And will do so, if you want. Maryhill as a place, anytime.  Your call.  Not 19th Dec before 17:00 otherwise.....

      But, perhaps a subsequent meeting should be a tad wider than that?

      It seems to me that a lot of people care about this web-site and the invite should extend to anyone that regularily contributes on here? 

      Can we try to move this forward?

    I could check registered email addresses and IP addresses if I had the inclination to do so. I don't. To be clear I find the desire to provide an actual name to an internet pseudonym quite unsettling and I'm aware that you know who I am. Personally I'd prefer if we all posted under our actual names but that's not the nature of the beast on these kind of things. I'm as 'guilty' as others in that respect. I'd much prefer that people didn't have multiple logins, if indeed they do, but provided they stay within acceptable limits then as strange as having multiple user names is then I'm relatively relaxed about it. Each to their own. What I have a degree of difficulty about is people trying to 'out' posters. To be absolutely clear if we are happy for people to post under pseudonyms, and we clearly are, then I will protect anyone's desire for anonymity provided they follow the fairly relaxed rules of the forum. Regardless of what any given poster's position is on any given subject I refuse to indulge any conspiracy theory. Your request has been useful as it has provided me with a opportunity to draw attention to something. Any attempt to try and provide a name to an otherwise anonymous account will be viewed less than favourably. I'd urge posters to post under one user name and one user name only but I will not get embroiled in dealing with accusations of people posting under multiple user names. I have zero knowledge of anyone actually doing so and I'd rather not have to spend time investigating that further. It's that kind of thing that makes me more and more inclined to delete this forum altogether.
  5. There might be space behind the 5 aside pitches. Basically where the old Petershill Park pitch was. No idea of the logistics involved in turning that but of ground into a decent standard of training pitch. Or whether Petershill Park is even an option being explored.

    This thread will now be locked. Had my holiday interrupted, again, this time from a poster making a threat against this site all because a few individuals can't stop acting like fannies.

    Who will fund the Club under fan ownership we're being asked. The Club will surely continue to be funded precisely as it currently is via: Gate Money/Season Ticket Sales Sponsorship (internal and external) Prize Money/TV Transfer Income The challenge will be, as it for all Boards in all ownership models, in finding additional/new revenue streams. The BoD will be appointed in much the same way all BoDs are appointed. Those with the requisite skills set will be sought to fill positions. Nothing radical there. The difference within this structure would seem to be with the creation of the fans board to provide oversight of the Club Board. Making that work, credible and truly representative of the fan base will be, I imagine, a real challenge. IMO people are viewing this in the short term and are continuing to fight old squabbles rather than viewing the bigger picture. If you are ideogically supportive of fan ownership this is excellent news for our Club. Don't get bogged down in history but see it as a chance to create a positive future for Thistle. Anyway, I'm off on holiday. Play nice in my absence.
  8. Meaning what precisely? I didn't see this comment when it was first posted but my attention has subsequently been drawn to it. You are in very dangerous waters here.

    I'm surprised there have been no conspiracy theories about the site being down given the nature of some of the contributions from the thread's more prolific posters.

    But are you now or have ever been in the past a member of the Communist Party, sorry, Thistle Forever?

    Sigh. How clear do I have to be about things to satisfy some? I have NO involvement with TfE aside from having made my modest pledge. Re communications I provided my email address when making my pledge and have received a couple of generic, global emails since then. I've met Paul Goodwin once when he was invited (not by me) to travel on the Jordanhill Bus to Montrose. I asked one question and posed for a photo with their Thistle Forever placard. I received one message from a individual from TfE, who I know socially, who asked me; in my capacity as Admin here, to approve a member request for this site. I may have commented on social media postings of his on the subject of TfE and vice versa. I genuinely don't recall. And that's it. TfE haven't asked me to be involved with them. Why would they? And I haven't asked to be involved. Of the names provided as being involved in TfE only one would I claim to know socially. I recognise some other names - I think I follow one on twitter. Others are completely new to me. Is that clear enough for you? I don't see why it is important anyway. I've formed an opinion, was actually swayed the other way for a bit but am now firmly a supporter of the TfE initiative. I reserve the right to change my mind at any point. Am I trying to influence the debate. No more or no less than anyone does who is trying to promote a particular line. That's how debate works is it not? Oh and in case you just skip past bits, I have No involvement with TfE.

    I assume you are claiming I'm lying then? Please provide evidence of my involvement with TfE aside from having made a pledge. If you can't remove your post or retract your allegation. You'll not find any evidence of my involvement TfE because there is none. I have no involvement with them. That might not suit the your agenda but it happens to be the truth.
