The Team are now looking into the number of forums which we operate on the site.  We'd be very interested to hear your views if you think that we should amalgamate any of them or if there are forums which you think that we no longer require.  Your thoughts please!

The intention is to transform ATFOTF into a much friendlier and happier place to be, for all our members, so consequently, these "endless announcements" are inevitable I'm afraid.

Can't win can we . Members in the past have stated that the Forum had too many rules and, it wasn't a very friendly place and was run like a dictatorship. We have tried to involve Members in things a lot more since the Team took over and started to change a few things.  I for one thought that we were on the right track, I've noticed that photo posts are on the increase which is pleasing. However it appears that whatever we do  there is a small number of people who we will never please.

What one person doesn't want to have, is nice to have for others. So, when I keep that in mind, I cannot say that there are parts of this forum which should be scrapped or not.

 

However, if I look at the things what interest me, than the Rides list, Transport list, Circus, Fairground Modelling, Themepark  and the Current funfair reports are not things I'm interested in.

 

So those could be put with the trash, where I'm concerned... 😁

 

But I expect to have stepped on some toes here...

The number of forums seems fine to me, but the order of those in the ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR section doesn't seem very logical. For instance, the order suggests that Fairground Transport is more important than Rides. I can see other anomalies too - if Fairground Transport and Transport List are together, then Ride/Show/etc and Ride List should be too. I've got used to the order, but I wonder how new members react.

A better division between Modern & Vintage would be nice. A vintage transport section, and moving the Living wagon page into the main bit. 

 

The circus forum does have a walking dead feel to it as well.

Peter did say 'In his opinion' as he doesn't look at those forums.

We did ask for everyone's views and thoughts after all.;)
