  1. Fantastic Algy - sorry it took me so long to stumble upon this gem!

    I would love to give you a proper Basil Fawlty response but forum rules forbid it. I certainly won't be quitting and the only thing I will be seeing in the mirror is a sour moaning milky who appears to have a very sad isolated life trying to pick fights on forums. Please clear off to the other news site and leave me to run my business, which I am delighted to say is booming since we increased the number of adverts by well over 500 per cent increase in revenue, some of which has been invested back into the community - and if you have the guts to reveal your true identity I may start to take notice of what you say.

    Thanks Asperity - Using this on a desk top and i don't know what the problem is although seeing lots of adverts promoting moaning old geezers

    Thanks Algy - eight weeks of lockdown has taught me one valuable lesson - I spent twenty years being a busy fool worrying what other people think. May be a I should also limit readers to 20 views a month and put up a pay wall as well!
  5. Certainly a big signing! But 12 months out of the game is a long time when you have to adapt to new surroundings, especially arriving in a freezing cold January. But the proof will be in the pudding.
  6. Thanks for sharing Algy - I will share with the Warrington Time Machine facebook group of which I am a curator
  7. And just to put another fly in the ointment - we had mass testing in Warrington with a drive-thru facility - but none of these tests are included in the Warrington figures and will be just added to the national figures. Also most people who have had it, got it or going to get it, will not even be tested for some time yet. So the information we are getting is a very rough guide.

    It is and with out the adverts it doesn't make any money - so I am not exactly sure what your point is?
  9. praise indeed - thank you Sid - I have to say I cringed a little when I read a headline on another site which shall remain nameless broadcasting that Warrington is a "hotspot" for coronavirus - this on a day when there were over 6,000 confirmed cases across the country - and one in Warrington! I am pleased to say I didn't click on it 😉

    The actual readership of the coronavirus facts and figures stories has dwindled somewhat since the many thousands read our breaking news story of the first reported case in the town many weeks ago - I'd say a lot of people have almost got complacent to the pandemic going on around us judging by the many day trippers descending on local beauty spots- but that's another story - and I've covered that one as well! But thanks for the comment it is nice to know work is appreciated - people normally only comment when they are having a go!

    Thanks for understanding guys - pleased to say our traffic is continuing to grow! Must be because we are still free 😉

    AS the owner I have been biting my tongue and keeping quite as there are far more important issues going on for me (my family) the town and the rest of the word. The adverts are our only form of revenue. Running this forum, even with adverts costs me personally over £750 a year, add to that the running costs of the main site (before any staffing costs) and you are talking another £9k a year!. Google gave an option to take over the placement of the adverts on this and the main site. Yes they are a bit of an inconvenience but they are not hurting anyone - all the same news content e.t.c is stll there for you for free. I currently have had to furlough all staff, had no govt grants but am still working seven days a week around the clock providing a free news service and a free forum and free daily news. The new advert placements have enabled us to keep going through what were already difficult times. If you want to carry on arguing with me over the placement of the adverts feel free - but if you are an unhappy customer (Can you be a customer if you don't pay?) nobody is forcing you on here and i am not making any demands of you. P.S Since our new advert placements our revenues have increased over 500 per cent and our website traffic has doubled in the past month, so not many people are voting with their feet. I guess you could always try the other news channel which i believe now limits how many stories you can see and they binned their forum years ago because its dwellers were more trouble than they were worth! I know I have some loyal friends on here who have been great supporters for many years and I thank you all and wish you all well. Take care and lets hope we can all get through these terrible times.
  13. The pollution problem belongs to the whole world (as in we all need to do our bit) but china is one of the biggest causes of it. Is that helpful enough for you old wise one ;)
  14. Spoke volumes that two of the best players on the park were released by Warrington - and Leeds are now being coached by a guy who took all the stick in the past! Warrington have brought in super star marquee players and released home grown players to other clubs. Something doesn't add up?
  15. Took my dad into town centre for a night out at Botanist and Cineworld - great time! Quite a few in Botanist but cinema was pretty empty!
  16. First case reported in Bury - I suspect only a matter of time before it arrives in Warrington if not already here! While it is frightening it is having a big impactyon tackling the world's pollution problem in china apparently, with reports that the pollution has completely gone within a matter of a few weeks. Makes one wonder!
  17. I am sure this article my be of interest to some of our regular forum dwellers. https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2020/02/06/ex-labour-cllr-accused-of-harassing-former-mp-helen-jones/
  18. The big acid test will be Saints at home - if we can win that we can win anything!
  19. I suspect H&W have slightly higher over heads than a market stallholder. I have seen items in JTF warehouse at a fraction of the prices of High Legh and Bents Garden Centres - but the shopping experiences are totally different.
  20. Good to see our MPs and the Council putting party politics to one side for the benefit of our local hospital. https://www.warrington-worldwide.co.uk/2020/01/10/a-refreshing-start-to-the-new-year-long-may-it-continue/

    Foodbanks

    Never judge a book by its cover - the tattoos could have been done years ago and the car could have been borrowed or purchased on a leasing agreement prior to falling on hard times. It is often quoted that many of us are just two pay cheques away from needing a food bank. But I do understand that some people will be getting their priorities wrong when it comes to feeding their kids and buying booze and fags with their benefits. May be a percentage of benefits should be paid in vouchers which can only be used on life's essentials to ensure cash is not misused?
  24. Merry Christmas to everyone who still posts on the Warrington Worldwide forum.
  25. I don't think it will be any time soon - but may be more chance now one of our MPs has a direct line to the decision maker!
