Some of you (very few!) may have noticed that the member count has fallen about 50 or so members. This is because now and again the members list is pruned for the following in order to remove "dead wood":-

- Members that have 0 posts and have not joined recently (within a month) - Therefore they haven`t bothered to post (too lazy or whatever)

- Members that haven`t been active :homosexual: :D (i.e haven`t logged on for over a year - I will probably reduce this to 6 months). Therefore I will assume you`ve died and remove you.


This is not some "toys thrown out of pram" incident cos you don`t visit the site merely a way to remove people who aren`t interested. You won`t be banned so you can re-register.

At the end of the day the site is maintained and funded solely by myself so in order to maintain bandwidth/storage space/and to get a accurate view of how many serious members there are this routine will be carried out now and again.

It is sad to see people leave the site don`t get me wrong.


Finally, on a similar subject it would be nice to see people update their Profiles. The amount of times (I`m sure I`m not the only one here) when you`re trying to remember who it was you were having the "conversation" with but you have no chance cos that person never gives their name out and has no information in their profile. Chances are their login will be the title of a stranglers song ??? :D . Plus it just adds a bit of a human element to proceedings. Go on do it now - stick in a bit of witty info about you. If you stick your county in there it helps people to arrange pre-gig piss ups etc. Don`t forget your signature can be updated as well.


Rant over

Play on

It was around the late 500 mark about a week ago

I think 300-400 is a good indication of how many real members we have on this board even if not all of them contribute! - I guess we have 100-150 people who contribute regularly. Would like to see more!

There seems to have been a lot of new members recently, and a lot of them seem to be contributing - which is good. The more the merrier.

What about another tshirt with something like :

'The New & Improved'
BURNING UP TIME FORUM
www.themeninblack.co.uk


or something similar, to try to get the newer members involved.

I have only been a member since early June, and I have found this the best forum in terms of number of contributors, diversity of opinion and types of things being posted. I will certinly keep posting on here.

I CAME ,I FOUND,I WROTE.

I COMETEMPLATED ON STRANGLERISH THINGS THAT I READ ON THE SITE
AND THOUGHT TO MYSELF. WHY DO PEOPLE USE SUCH DAFT NAMES,
MIB,WIB,CHRISINBLACK,STEVEINBLACK,RATTUS1/RATTUS2,/AWFUL SCRIPTURE,ARE WE THAT DAFT.?

I THINK NOT.
ARE WE PART OF A CULT,OR AN UNDERGROUND CLUB,THAT LIKES TO BE
HIDDEN FROM VIEW,A POPPY MASONS.
SO WILL WE GET OUR VERY OWN HANDSHAKE? THAT REMAINSTO BE SEEN,OR WILL IT BE SEEN?

I am a fan of the stranglers sins 1975 and could never talk aboud it. The people in our villace didn't like The Stranglers.
The had never even heard of the band. The fuw who knew them set to me
a bunsh of trublemakers you better tues an other band. There are olways fighting.If I liked to have anny neuws aboud them it was
in a musicmagazine.But the were never positifly about The Stranglers.
If the writing somthing it was alwais negative.
So after 30 years I am happy now becous I can talk about them
now and averyone knows somthing about The Stranglers.
DANIELLA
