Hello .........This is my first post on here, so at least I have managed the first step !!

It looks like I followed just right behind you andersong. I am inclined to make some of my posts a bit too long ...... However, I never go on to a forum to insult or abuse anyone. And certainly never Dundee FC fans and supporters.

I may need a few days to get into the swing of the way of things on The Dark Blue Forum, but looking forward to settling in.

Hope there are many more new members to follow, and it really takes off in the weeks ahead.

Welcome GeDee,

We don't mind long posts (add book to the heading first ;) lol ) and you seem to be getting the hang of things. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. :)

Hello again ........Thank you for the "Welcome Post "

On the previous forum, I have been described by a few posters on various posts at different times as ........."  a patronising, sanctimonious, parasite !!! "

Are yo quite sure this is the kind of poster you want on here !!!

Too late anyhow ...... I'M HERE NOW !!!

Hopefully this site takes off.

The Mad sites are terrible to use, its like stepping back in time and although P&B is a great site there's an unbelievable amount of trolling goes on.

Can we swear?  :)

This^ This is one of the reasons I started up this website. When I first joined Mad I put up with the 'look and feel' because it was very active and fun to be on, but that changed and I hated the 'Footy's' move to drive us out with adverts.

You can swear, if you feel the need, I am working to have a bad word filter that the user can decide if they want enabled or not. Most people will be adults, so we should treat them like adults, but we will not permit foul language and swearing at other users, then that is just abuse and will not be tolerated. :)

I have always equated Dee-mad to Shaded for some reason, so does that mean he actually own those assets? :)

As I am in no way associated with Dee mad, I have no say on their assets or IP, but I will never forget the amazing work Dee-Mad did for Dundee FC over the years and the money raised during the dark years at Dens.

Good to hear.

Most of us swear but reading things like phucking makes my eyes bleed and serves no purpose, either swear properly or don't swear at all but you're not going to come across any better by misspelling a swear word.

I was on P&B more than I was on Dee mad. Dee mad is the first place I'd go to when there's something going on at the club or if I just wanted to get the latest news/rumours. The adverts have completely ruined what was already an annoying site to use. It would be good if most of the users came on to here so we could get an active board, then I'll never have to go back.
 

This site seems to be picking up. Hopefully when it's all up and running we can continue the great fundraising that was done in the past.

I'm not sure I know how to spell swear words properly. I can use them, boy can I use them, but they were left out of school lessons even at Kirkton when I was there.

Edit - the teachers at Kirkton could use them better than I ever could.

Will be refreshing if we can keep it clean and a wee bit sensible.

You´re going to get the odd roaster after a few sherberts but that´s life.

Treat them gently and they won´t get too abusive...

I hope the forum can take off, i enjoyed Dundee Mad ,but recently some of the posting was bordering on the ridiculous,if we can get some of the decent sensible posters across here then things should take off just fine,

Cheers lads.

Decided to sign up.

Don't post on Dee Mad or P&B, but look at both. Hopefully this site does well.

Good to see the site so active and hopefully it continues to grow. I think the Mad site with its annoying ads will die if this is successful and Mad continues with its irritations.

I'm a P&Ber and always will be, love the banter and even some of the trolling from the other teams fans. Great opportunities for GIRU them when the Dees turn them over.

This board looks more usable than dee mad so hopefully I can contribute a bit more here! Dee mad was cliquey and that's why I never used it so if we can avoid that pish I'm in.

Best way for publicity for this site would be through one of the facebook pages.

I never posted much on Mad but would always take some time to have a read of the forum.

But it was getting to the point where it was hardly worth it as it was just too dated. Hopefully this forum kicks off as it looks a lot better and is easier to use.

One of the biggest problems with Mad recently was the political threads. Not a problem discussing politics on a football forum but not everyone agreed. Now there is a political section, all politics can get discusses there instead of the main board.

Agreed. Didn't one of the Mods from the DFC news post on mad before?

Didn't expect the forum to hit such a boom so quickly, but I suppose that's what happens when you get treated like you do on FootyMad. I think the two forums will be running side by side for quite a bit and only one shall remain *dramatic voice*.

Whether DM remains may not be down to the wishes of those who post there.  When you look at the various club forums some seem to be pretty dormant, at least the couple of dozen or so I looked in on.  If my randomish sample is true across their football network then I suspect the subscription model now in place may be a last roll of the dice to keep it going.  The enforced service of ads is a sign of desperation methinks...
