    Hello all.
    Banning theMartial Art for that comment, which is completely uncalled for and has now been deleted.

    Thanks – Marshy

    Sorry Roman – can’t have you abusing others like this on here and I think it’s better you are given an enforced break for now. Consider this a temporary ban from the pages.

    I’m all for healthy debate, but your complete lack of respect for other users – and the language you use towards them – simply cannot be tolerated.

    I think it’s in everyone’s best interests if you step away from these pages for now. -Marshy

    Appreciate all your commments, especially those about the user experience of the site. You make plenty of valid points and they’ll all been noted.

    A couple of things: the reason things don’t get done as fast as we’d like….we’re a growing brand of websites which now includes several multi-successful titles under our umbrella (TEAMtalk, PlanetF1, Planet Football, Football365 to name you four) and our devs are ridiculously busy and ridiculously over-worked. In fact, they have a never-ending pit of site requests to fix…

    Hopefully, that puts to bed any accusations too that the sites are dying. On the contrary, they have never been healthier. That said, I appreciate the Your Say forums are a mess and need a lot of attention and your complaints (constructive ones at least) are useful.

    As a final point, however, anyone advertising links to another discussion forum on these pages are in breach of forum guidelines and will be subsequently suspended from these pages.

    Many thanks. -Marshy

    RIP. Thoughts with his family at this incredibly sad time. Taken far, far too young.

    Roman’s Dirty Pants: I understand your frustration and anger and actually agree with you over Chelsea fans who look like they’ve driven Sarri out.
    However, speaking to fellow posters in such a manner is wholly unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Nine does a really decent job in very trying circumstances and it’s thanks in part to him why this board thrives.

    Any repeat offence will leave with me with no choice but to ban you from the forums.

    Thanks – Marshy

    Sorry you guys feel like that, and there’s plenty of valid points you make.

    We can’t sadly magic up new users and would encourage you to point people towards these pages direction if you think it’s something they’d be interested in.

    Anyone who has been banned – and that’s a) no more than a handful over the years and b) at the request of numerous users – has only been for the good of the rest of you and your enjoyment at using these pages.

    Given more time we’d love to get involved more in the forums; sadly market forces means we don’t time or the resources to do so.

    FWIT, I still think those of you still around do a brilliant job in making the forums what they are and, when time does allow, I do enjoy checking in and reading your views. Your opinions, posts and contributions are all hugely appreciated!

    Cheers. -Marshy

    Hi NI Blue.

    We advise posters to simply take a break, rather than deleting registrations to the site. I can put a freeze on your account if you so desire but deleting you will make it permanent.
    Either way, just not posting is the best way around it.

    Let me know if you need further help.

    Regards.

    Hello again all.

    At his own request, Steveosnakeeye has requested to be released from his role as this page’s moderator.

    I’ll potentially appoint a replacement in due course – but needless to say I’ll be watching the page like a hawk and issuing page bans if it’s in the best interest of the majority of users.

    PLEASE OBIDE BY FORUM RULES TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT THE ONE WHO FALLS FOUL!

    In the meantime, I’d like to thank Steve for his efforts and hopefully he’ll continue contributing to the page as a poster.

    Cheers – Marshy

    Hello all – time to interject here….

    Honestly don’t think a topic such as this is helpful, nor would it be right of me to take sides in this issue.

    However, I will remind everyone of their responsibilities – including that of the moderator (who, by the way, I’m not singling out, but as the mod should be setting the example).

    Please be warned that failure to adhere to forum rules will not be tolerated and will result in bans for all guilty parties.

    Stick to matters on Arsenal only – and speak to others how you’d expect to be spoken to yourself.

    As for the criticism of our website, that is wholly not appreciated or will be tolerated. There is a lot that happens and has happened behind the scenes and pressures on our job that has changed over recent years…I shan’t go into details.

    Please take the time to read this and all collectively improve going forwards.

    If I don’t seen an improvement in a week, I’ll simply issue bans in an effort to clear up the site and allow freedom of speech on here to those who abide by the rules.

    Thanks for reading. Marshy

    Understand the language, but it’s worth toning down please…
    I monitor all the pages when I can and the amount of C-bombs on this page caught my eye – no-one flagged it up other than our staff. I like the Beetlejuice comparison though 🙂

    Thanks

    Redblood: your language – and the way you speak to others on here – needs to improve, otherwise I’ll be enforced to issue a ban.

    I can only imagine how you may respond to this, but if you’d like to confirm how you’d like to proceed please….?

    Thanks – Marshy

    MUFC – please can you refrain from using this sort of language on the site? It’s not really what we expect to see and may put off others from using these pages.

    We have received a number of complaints about your choice of language. You make some valid points in your posts, but please try to do so without the expletives.

    Thanks for your understanding. – Marshy

    Consider this a ban, Shanksy. You can’t go on other sides’ pages spouting this sort of thing. Even moreso after you’ve had a warning. Marshy

    Failure to comply will result in you being banned…

    Thanks Bort.

    We tend to encourage people to leave their accounts active as too often in the past we’ve had people late request to reactive their accounts.

    Just don’t use it if you don’t want to participate.

    Thanks. Marshy

    Thanks Ash. Despite the conspiracy theories, they are completely different users.

    And I’m assured by techies that our system makes it impossible for pseudonyms to register multiple accounts.

    I’ve imposed a ‘temporary’ ban as a warning to others… I’ll be the judge whether that lasts a week, a month or 5 years. Either way, can’t be having him acting in this way. Thanks – Marshy

    Temporary ban for Bloggy to be imposed. Checking on people’s other halves in hospital is entirely unacceptable. Joking or otherwise, this is wholly inappropriate.

    It’s not the first time there’s been a warning.

    Please everyone, stick to the football, and treat everyone else with respect
    Other bans to follow if I deem others to be in breach of the forum rules. -Marshy

    Lads (Paxman mainly) – I appreciate this is only banter but please try and adhere to forum rules…
    I don’t think the language – or manner of the language – is in manner of what we want on site. Not exactly welcoming to potential newbees, nor what others probably come to the site to see….

    Thank you – Marshy

    Wonderful Gas – you are entirely right. We’re Leeds based and I’m a Leeds fan. Prem would be far richer for having us back…. 🙂

    But the decision to cover Leeds is also a business decision – we get traffic from Leeds stories second only to Man Utd, Liverpool, Arsenal, Spurs & Chelsea.

    Our system prevents people from having multiple accounts, so any theories that two posters are the same person are simply untrue.

    And to echo some of the sentiments on here – please stick to football debate. Personal insults, attacks or cyber-bullying simply will not be tolerated and bans will be issued if necessary.

    We’re all connected by our love for football, so let’s focus on that rather than hatred or personal insults.

    Cheers, Marshy
