The Newcastle United Blog – Site Update


nufc-crest4

We have one or two points to update our readers on, for the Newcastle United Blog.

  • The registration system seems to be working well so at least we have single user IDs with passwords. We have had over 1200 readers register on the site in the last month.
  • We’ve finally put out what looks to be good function for our iPhone readers, and it was activated yesterday, and according to one of our iPhone readers – RyanToon, it’s working unbelievably  – that’s his own word in an email Ryan sent us yesterday, so please check it out. We know this has been an improvement our readers have been requesting.
  • Also we want to ensure our Blackberry users are still OK, so please can one or two of our Blackberry readers tell us if it’s still working well. Use our comment form for this.
    We expect Barrack Obama to check the site out, once he gets security clearance – although his sport is basketball. 😀
  • We are asking on behalf of one of our readers, Lisa, if anybody has any video of the 1962 game when Newcastle United won the FA Youth Cup with Bobby Moncur and David Craig (and her father) in the side. Please use the comment form to let us know if you can help out.
  • Finally we also want to again point out our comments policy, since there continues to be criticism between readers, but we’d discourage any talk about Religion, or Politics on this site. And please respect other reader’s opinions and their heritage. Remember that even if you completely and utterly disagree with them, we are all different and our only common thread is we support The Newcastle United Football Club.
    We welcome people of all colors and creeds to our site, the more the better, since we’re all in this together.

COMMENTS POLICY:

===================

The purpose of the comments is to allow Newcastle United 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 at all 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 United, so there’s nothing wrong with that. In short, let’s be civil to all our readers.

In general, we’d ask you to be civil towards other members and refrain from obscene remarks. religion or politics.

The key to all of this is to be respectful in expressing your opinion.

We want this site to be read by our younger generation of Newcastle United fans around the world, which is one big reason we will not tolerate bad language.

Please let’s make this work – and let’s help the Newcastle United Football Club, which we all love, become great again.

That’s all we ask, and why we created this site.

===================

Let’s hope we can get a win tomorrow, at WBA, because we need one, and it will be a great reason to celebrate.

Howay The Lads!!

That’s all for now – thanks.

Ed Harrison.

    Yes, a good mate but have totally different perspective on the situation.
    On many occasions, we have been asked to keep the noise down cos the other patrons are getting annoyed.

    My 1000 texts don’t last me the month!!

    @ betty ( you called me Sayers before)

    I love anyone who has a go at Stardust. He drives me up the wall with his views.
    Equally, we drive him up the wall.

    Do you not think it would be class to meet in Shearers or somewhere and had a pint with any bloggers willing to come along.

    It would be great banter!
