Welcome to Rochdale Talk

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 05, 2012 2:27 pm

Hello, good morning and welcome, as Sir David Frost would say.

Sadly, Rochdale Online has closed its forums leaving us with no home to go to so we thought we'd set this up in the spirit of the RO forums which have given pleasure to so many people over the years.

We hope to meet old friends and new so please add this to your favourites menu.

Please read the rules carefully. Most of them are commonsense. We will not tolerate bullying or intimidation but we do aim to encourage a bit of heated debate.

This forum is moderated but we aim to have a very light touch. Please enjoy yourselves and use us regularly. Things may be slow to start with and we will be playing around with the design.

So, it's over to you. It's all yours!

Enjoy.

Well, here I am! and how the heck has my user name already been taken? I've had to add the 2
Had an (almost) sleepless night last night wondering what we was going to do without our beloved RO Shocked
Will take a bit of getting used to a new format but I'm sure we can do it.

No porn, no advertising, (unless it's something I want to buy) no outright racism and definitely no spam or emails from Uganda offering posters an opportunity to get rich quick from a former Minister of Finance who just needs your credit card details to release $10,000.000 from his Swiss bank account!

I think that the RO forums had it just about right. I thought that perhaps the Mods were a bit heavy-handed at times but I suppose these things are a tough call.

I hope we get a good mix of threads. Nostalgia, entertainment, banter with hopefully not too much politics which did tend to take over sometimes.

I really hope that we attract a good few former RO posters. I was a member for quite a few years and made some solid friendships off it.

I'm new to all this so not sure how it works.

Please invite your friends onto it.

14 members and we've only been up and running for a few hours.

Ann Metcalfe has tried to get on several times and gave up in the ends and has gone off in in a huff nursing a bottle of wine.

Trouble is with her, if it doesn't eat hay and fart a lot she loses patience.

Hello Everyone

Post  Striding on Wed Sep 05, 2012 9:59 pm

The memberlist has a few familiar names. I decided to shorten mine a little.

Let's see how this goes. I'm sure that some of the local politicians and councillors would have breathed a sigh of relief at the sad demise of the RO forum, hoping to escape close scrutiny and discussion of their performance and actions, and being brought to account.
