We will have occasional site news bulletins like this, when we have some things to share with our readers.
- We are pleased to see that since we have moved to Tiger Technologies, the site performance has improved and is now very stable, from what we can tell. We are pleased we have now been able to address the increased traffic flow on the site, and we’ve had terrific support from Tiger on this.
- Over the last couple of weeks we have tried various functions to support our mobile readers.
Right now we have the specific one in operation that supports most PDAs and IPhones, so please give us some feedback using the contact form, on how this is performing.
Thanks to those readers who have already been helping us, with their feedback on this.
- The comments are starting to get out of hand again, and we will publish our Comments Policy, and have it always in a prominent place on the Blog.
This site can be made or broken by the comments, and of course it’s much more difficult to manage a site where comments are allowed, rather than having a closed web-site where traffic is just one way.
We again ask our readers to be civil to each other, and remember we have young fans that read the site.
The purpose of the comments is to allow Newcastle fans and others to express their views on the news of the day concerning Newcastle United Football Club. We ask all readers to respect other reader’s opinions and views, even though they may violently disagree with them.
We have removed the editing capability for comments because it was one of the things slowing the site down, so from now on any comments that contain any foul language will not make it to the blog.
Let’s also respect fans from other clubs, and remember they are only supporting their clubs as much as we support Newcastle, so there’s nothing wrong with that, so let’s have some civility to all our readers.
In general, we’d ask you to be civil towards other readers and refrain from obscene remarks.
The key to all of this is to have something valuable to say, and as we’ve stressed above, it will help if you can be respectful in expressing it. We want this site to be read by our younger generation of Newcastle United fans around the world, which is one big reason we cannot tolerate bad language.
Let’s make this work – and let’s help the Newcastle United club become great again – even in the midst of the mess we seem to be in right now – this too will pass – and we’re still dreaming of the good times ahead.
