is the Wigan world message board dying
Started by: i-spy (14291)  Report abuse
sadly there are fewer and fewer posts and its the same on Wigan history

Posted by: PeterP (6864) Report abuse
I-Spy more people are posting on general

Posted by: norman prior (817)   Report abuse
WW is certainly not the site it used to be. It does appear to be dying but I hope that is not the case.It used to be such a good site to be associated with.

Posted by: blackrodweaver (538) Report abuse
History of Wigan board just the same ispy

Posted by: norman prior (817)   Report abuse
Is it because the younger element have nothing to say since they have been born with a mobile phone glued to their ear. You see them leaving their front door with the phone or other technological gadget over their ear, oblivious to what is happening around them.

Posted by: dave© (3472) Report abuse
I prefer to put the odd post in the "Handbag" section, I find the general section too anarchic these days, life's too short for constant bickering. If there's a request for help in the "General" section, and I'm able to help, I'll post there. Otherwise, leave well alone.

too much fighting on the dance floor

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
Me to, dave, it's a shame people are attacked, by the same people, everytime they post.

11 posts in June - it's revival time

And now 1 in July!

Things are on the up.

We have lift off

Or maybe not

Posted by: ayrefield (4465) Report abuse
We have lift off - yes I'm off, the forums gone to the dogs.

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
I don't think it's dying, people are reluctant to post in case they get attacked by the "gang" for having an opinion.

Posted by: roylew (3014) Report abuse
Well that sounds like dying...stuff em

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
Only if they are allowed to do it, Roy.

It is they who are ruining the site.

Posted by: lectriclegs (3544) Report abuse
"Only if they are allowed to do it, Roy."

Is that a criticism of the Admin on here Baz?

You're very adept at blaming someone else, it's your trademark.

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
If admin let you and your cronies keep attacking people and trying to ruin the site your going to carry on.

Posted by: i-spy (14291)  Report abuse
Just thought I'd give August a kick start

Posted by: lectriclegs (3544) Report abuse
CPR is what is required.

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
People are scared of posting in case they get attacked by the cowardly gang.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (3076) Report abuse
It is because of all those nasty uns

Posted by: nanajacqui (1882)  Report abuse
TTS Who are the nasty uns ? I hope my names not on your list,I like you & I'm not nasty

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
It is TTS, they go round in a gang attacking decent posters.

Which others are you on that you can compare it with??

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
I don't need to compare it, anything else is second class

Posted by: broady (14105)   Report abuse
Usual claptrap. Do you possess even a single brain cell?

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
Boredy being nasty again, it's no wonder he got thrown off Wigan World Rejects site.

Posted by: fred mason (2731)   Report abuse
I know Broady. He is a gentleman who lives in God's country.

I believe there are good people on here who treat others with respect and consideration.

Posted by: i-spy (14291)  Report abuse
Well said Fred

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
Agree, Fred, but there's a few "nasty uns" who are intent on causing trouble and trying to spoil the site.

Posted by: nanajacqui (1882)  Report abuse
No i-spy it's not dead yet,been a lot of posts this weekend

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
And no cowardly people going round in a gang attacking decent posters.

Posted by: nanajacqui (1882)  Report abuse
And repeat,repeat,repeat

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
Definitely better, just a shame "some people" still keep causing trouble

Posted by: momac (9621)  Report abuse
Basil,just look back at your comments.."Nasty Uns" "Cowards" "Spoiling
the Site"..it's all the same quotations you're using all the time..I'm sick of
reading the same old lines.

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
But that's my umble opinion on the people that go round in a gang attacking, decent posters, like myself, and spoil threads

Posted by: momac (9621)  Report abuse
See Baz you're there again,just forget about other people and quote else,
or start another thread,not like I start many myself..I don't like falling out
with anybody Baz so just be a good lad and drop all this nasty uns,cowards
etc,and then we can all live in harmony.

Posted by: nanajacqui (1882)  Report abuse
Momac have you ever thought that it's like banging your head against a brick wall,how on earth does his little wife put up with him ???

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
So are you saying I can't have an opinion of people

I definitely don't want to fall out with anyone, but I'm entitled to my opinion and that's what I think of these people

Posted by: MarieM (5291) Report abuse
He spoils nearly every thread with the same old boring rubbish.

Posted by: nanajacqui (1882)  Report abuse
Glad you think so MarieM

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
Boring rubbish

It's the truth, just look on the general, and see how one of the gang as got nasty to me.

Posted by: momac (9621)  Report abuse
Baz stop quoting "Nasty" and maybe folk will stop being "Nasty".

Posted by: mortarmillbill (438) Report abuse
I can't understand why you don't put him on ignore

Posted by: basil brush (10779) Report abuse
I really wish they would, bill, it would be nice to post without the "nasty uns" attacking me everytime

Posted by: nanajacqui (1882)  Report abuse
mortarmillbill you'd think if he thinks we're nasty and all the other names he calls us,that he'd put us on ignore.Then again he'd only have three friends left so that's the reason it's not rocket science !

Posted by: momac (9621)  Report abuse
I give in.

So, folks, what kind of posts do we want on Wigan World?

About life in the town?

About jobs in the town?

About people in the town?

Schools, Church's, Pubs, Shops????

Posted by: momac (9621)  Report abuse
Hello Fred..

Posted by: fred mason (2731)   Report abuse
Hiya, Mo...

Question:? On WiganWorld.....

Who remembers the old Wigan, circa 1950's and how does it compare to today's Wigan?

Posted by: momac (9621)  Report abuse
The old Wigan was magical..so much to do for everybody not just us then
youngsters..every shop you needed,you knew what you wanted without
Supermarkets telling you ..leave one job on Friday,walk straight into a new
one on Monday...go to the pictures or dancing etc without somebody
looking for trouble and getting blind drunk...and as for music..well say no
more,Elvis,Bill Haley.Bobby Rydel,etc..that isn't to say I don't enjoy today's
music,I certainly do..all kinds..but the 50s music I think was the forerunner
of all good music...all in all the 50s was a brilliant time to be a youngster.

Posted by: fred mason (2731)   Report abuse
Excellent, Mo...

Anyone else want to keep this thread alive...????

Mo...

I didnt really think it was you Joanne, I was just guessing because it seems you always around town but this woman didnt have a dog with her.
She looked a bit rejected, with grey hair and wrinkly face , and she walked off down towards Gidlow lane, just as I was passing her a again she noticed me coming up and quickly flicked her coat hood over her head so she didnt want to be seen

Not bad.

But Peter says it all when he points out that most people post on General.

Let's say that Wiganworld site is for other types of posts other than General????
