Unfortunately, no one knows what the question is.

        You could meet up with nicnic, Kev and Murdrum for golf and outdoor pints.

        And, no doubt, blaas.

            Good chance i'll be in Clare on holiday when my second shot is due and, by fuck, I'll jump in the car and drive back to Dublin then return to Clare in a day to get it.

            Some people don't know how lucky they have it.

                Haven't seen Murdrum on here in a while. Wondering if he ever got those PXGs.

                          Really? Like with Zuut?

                          They do that themselves then?

                          That's a real pity.

                            There's a decent case we should all delete our accounts every now and again. No harm in getting rid of old data points.

                              Does anyone know an easy way to get rid of 14 internal wooden doors? I don't want to have to get a skip. I have them on Adverts for 70 quid but no luck.

                                  Put them outside your house with a for sale sign on them at €200

                                  Someone will steal them.

                                      Fantastic acting. Started watching City On The Hill, Kevin Bacon, its been very good so far, 5 episodes in. Motherland on Netflix is an easy half hour watch also.
                                      This too shall pass.

                                        I think we need to do something.

                                        The number of active posters on here is diminishing constantly. Some of that is probably just natural dropoff, some of it is probably down to the fact that we have close to zero poker content anymore but I suspect a lot of it is just due to how unbelievably crappy this site is to use and navigate.
                                        A lot of our regulars are now just in lurking status too.
                                        Ultimately the site will just die entirely, which would be an awful shame. Best case it stays what it is, an amusing echo chamber for the few of us that remain active.

                                        I've been offering for a long time to kick in $$$ as needed but no-one ever seems interested in taking the offer up. In fairness, DP and sometimes 5star seem to be the only admins\mods who are still committed to keeping this place up and I have no doubt they do some heroic work with their virtual hammers and spanners for no reward whatsoever bar their own commitment to the community.

                                        It's time to do two things (and I think one leads to the other):
                                        1. Fix the site. Either do whatever it takes to get this site up to the ease of use standards of somewhere like boards or else let's take the decision to move to another platform entirely. This place sucks donkey balls.
                                        2. Once we have (1) done, let's make a serious effort to get back at least some of our dormant posters - get the community vibrant again.

                                              I've counted 7 doors in our house. I guess we live in a mud hut compared to Eoghan. 14 doors ?

                                                                I think we need to do something.

                                                                The number of active posters on here is diminishing constantly. Some of that is probably just natural dropoff, some of it is probably down to the fact that we have close to zero poker content anymore but I suspect a lot of it is just due to how unbelievably crappy this site is to use and navigate.
                                                                A lot of our regulars are now just in lurking status too.
                                                                Ultimately the site will just die entirely, which would be an awful shame. Best case it stays what it is, an amusing echo chamber for the few of us that remain active.

                                                                I've been offering for a long time to kick in $$$ as needed but no-one ever seems interested in taking the offer up. In fairness, DP and sometimes 5star seem to be the only admins\mods who are still committed to keeping this place up and I have no doubt they do some heroic work with their virtual hammers and spanners for no reward whatsoever bar their own commitment to the community.

                                                                It's time to do two things (and I think one leads to the other):
                                                                1. Fix the site. Either do whatever it takes to get this site up to the ease of use standards of somewhere like boards or else let's take the decision to move to another platform entirely. This place sucks donkey balls.
                                                                2. Once we have (1) done, let's make a serious effort to get back at least some of our dormant posters - get the community vibrant again.
                                                                The site is woeful no doubt. There is no threads no blogs to follow many where the content was poor some decent. The reality is the site has got boring maybe it’s Covid related or just the sane conversation rehashed. Only so many wanks a man can have over a cold cuts and cheese platter picture. The glory days were the big meets at poker festivals especially nights out. It’s a bit like having friends if you have to hound them to have a drunken night out hang out is it worth it ?

                                                                      As for festival's there will be no chance for a while I imagine.

                                                                                                                  We can't of course guarantee that fixing this problem will bring people back but it certainly can't hurt and it might also stop us losing more.

                                                                                                                  I've seen you guys make lots of heroic effort to fix this site but in my considered and highly technical view, it's irredeemably fucked and we should take option (b).

                                                                                                                  Can we at least make a decision on this? Then we can get into the discussion of how\who and most importantly, how much? To the last one, I'm sure most members would be happy to kick in $$$ if it meant getting a better platform and being able to revitalise the site.
