  1. out of interest how far in front of the referee do you have to be to be offside at the play of the ball? Just curious because for st helens players it seems to be about five yards. For all other teams it seems to be about five inches.

  2. A while back Gary posted this. This has always been a free forum but with less than a dozen regular posters, it’s unlikely that your monthly forum costs of £60+vat can be covered by voluntary contributions. Any attempt to do this would almost certainly kill off the forum and none of us here want to see that. So, over the past few days, I’ve been in contact with all but one of the forum regulars to see if collectively we could come up with anything that might help you. This was deliberately done away from the forum and in private so that posters could express their ideas and views in private. All supported the idea of trying to find ways of helping but unfortunately there were few practical ideas put forward. Just two people said they would be happy to pay a small amount towards the running costs but didn’t specify how much or for how long. Three I suppose if I count myself. I thought it might be possible to use spare capacity at my company to host the forum for you, but I was advised by a member that Invision’s requirements for a move and ongoing charges would make it unrealistic and may cause some disruption. Someone else suggested running a free forum, setup to look and work as near as possible to what we have now. No cost but equally no advertising revenue. Doing this would also be a start from new and one member said they were not happy about losing the old posting. So, there we have it, a lot of effort but no earth-shattering solutions. Sorry Gary it looks like we’re stuck with what we have at the moment and the future of the forum is in your hands, but we all gave it a try. Thanks to all that helped with this. Finally, a couple of points worthy of note although you will already know this. Everyone dislikes the level of advertising but said they understood and several expressed strong concerns that not enough was being done to promote the forum. Bill 😊

  4. Just to see where we are on the age scale - market research for you Gary. How many people actually did business with "the stores horse", how many remember the doctor visiting your house on request? How many actually listened to the radio reports of the 'blitz', how many listened to Lord Haw Haw on the radio and Itma. How many remember a traffic circle at Market Gate, Burtons Tailors and the Royal Court Theater? The level crossing on Wildersppool Causeway, 30,000 people at Wilderspool. How many WALKED to Market Gate for the New Years Eve celebration? What is your favorite memory from when Warrington was a ' everybody knows evertbody' town to today. Ok, that's enough nostalgia, how do we attract new people who don't remember the war, or the New Town, or even the IRA ? Here's the question, what, other than politics can provide a discussion platform for 30 yr olds ? Surely our generation didn't hog all of the highlights, although Buddy Holly was pretty good - he was sensational ! Im working my butt off here Gary !

  5. I remember in the 50's they regularly tested the siren on Stockton Heath police station in case our Russian Friends decided to flatten us. What was the point? I would not want to know that in 3 mins I was going to be vapourised

  7. She was a funny and beautiful person. It's sad to hear that she has died. Altzeimers and Dementia are such cruel diseases but alas are so many others too. RIP Babs.... I like to think of her as being up there with the angles now shouting 'Ger Out o' MY Pub' x

  10. Fortunately it only affected the forum so I doubt there was any financial impact, just a few grumpies getting a bit grumpier. Bill
