    What’s going on!?
    Is somebody stealing the website one piece at a time?
    I noticed a while ago that the contacts list was gone and now birthday listings have gone from the Community Calendar.

    Hi Dougie

    It’s not being stolen, just growing and changing.

    We thought that the Contact List was stopping this board being used to its potential and since dropping it the Gossip Board has increased in use. It also drops the risk of the list of e-mails being harvested by e-mail gathering programs for spam purposes which was always a concern.

    The Birthdays were dropped from the Calendar because we thought it made the Calendar too cluttered and devalued the important aspect which is the local events.

    Evolution, we’ve gained and dropped excess baggage in many forms since 2000 – anybody remember the good old Bletherbox? 🙂

    This sounds like something that was a lot of fun and obviously before I found this site. Nothing like a good blether.

    Is there any way that I can archive this? Or is it gone forever?

    regards to all.

    Are CC minues some new form of metric fish? or just your usual typing skills showing through?:smilinem:

    Try http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.killin.co.uk. Pretty good idea for a web site.

    CC Minutes are in hand 😉

    The BletherBox was a simple live online chat room CGI script similar to IRC. It fell by the wayside as this forum took off. It was also difficult to find more than one or two people in the chatroom at the one time.

    These forums were actually first called “the BletherBoard” another basic CGI script.

    I, as I’m sure Coonball will, fondly remember our opening night in the BletherBox, locals came in and went on as the explored the site for the first time 🙂 Those were the days nearly 8 years ago.
