I must say in haste things could have dealt with a lot better like stowjon and others on this forum whom have been longer before it was sold on,,
player feedback and how to improve more numbers on this forum contributing there input would also help build a feel of community etc etc


I do believe mr b4 and others are doing what they can but to bash them and judge the very people whom work here imo is not helping anyone and this does not apply to everyone on this forum just a minority I would say ,, treat people how you would be expected to be treated with respect

What a fu(c)king ponce. Jon might be a whiney ginger midget [he is], but he happens to be the best whiney ginger midget I know [he is the only one].

This gig's gone to shit. See y'all around.

Never been interested in the added value myself (or rather the time requirement in chasing it), but forum started dying when they were split up imo.

Whole site and database feels to me like it's moving inexorably towards being a purely commercial entity - which is fair enough, GPI aren't a charity, but hardly feels like a community outside of a handful of posters. APAT and Blonde miles ahead in that respect, what reason does anyone have to seek this forum out?

even tho i pop in most days i dont post much, the first thing i bumped into when i visited after a few years in the wilderness was stowjons thread about the leeches/ lurkers in ps games. (thought oh what have i missed )
mr dooofus doesnt see the games/ challenges jon sets or he would get off his high horse..
but hope it gets sorted, i wasnt here for the good times,seems i came back at wrong time because people i see as regs all seem to be leaving.
gl jon was nice knowing you even tho for a short time only.

I don't come on as much any more, it just feels like any old forum now, it had a nice feel when there where all the great posters, and also with Joe and the gang doing probably the best job anyone could potentially ever do with running not only a site but a forum that we could call home.

Since they sold up, it's slowly died, and has lost that great feeling, nice to see that a few remain although one by one they are dropping.

Since then, I give huge credit to Stowjon for actually trying to keep the fun going by creating events, challenges, and looking into a league that we all wanted, and for nothing but pleasure!, yeah he moans here and there, but then when something is dieing that someone loves they are bound too, either way he has been probably the biggest credit to the forum, so to say he brings no value is as big an insult that he could get.

So from the occasional look in and post up until now, I will leave for good also. Good luck to everyone, and hope to see you about somewhere else.


Most of this.

It's difficult to keep the forum going as it was as the Hendon Mob have all left. I thank stowjon for trying to keep interest going here but I think we need a couple of celebrity professionals posting regularly to replace the ones we've lost.

I'm a bit cynical about these things, and possibly naive.

When the HM set the website up, the forum created traffic along with the database, which could be monetized through advertising and eventually led to them selling the site. Without the website and brand I doubt they would have got Prima and then FTP sponsorship deals.

What do GPI get out of the forum?
They're established, the hard work has been done in that everyone (globally) knows that THMF is the place to come for stats. So why bother with it?

People can say that the forum has gone downhill, but that's hardly because Barny, Joe, Ross and Ringo don't post here now. (personally I think there should be a dedicated Ace Kray-moderated forum). The sponsors of events are the same as before, or am I missing something?

Back on topic - the sheer ineptitude of the Facebook message from Alex D made me chuckle.
Shame that Stowjon has left in a strop though.
