It could have been worse, although not by much.

Just read this on another forum.

" He is a gnats cock above plankton "

What kind of thick dumb arse comes up with stuff like that. :lol:

Europe is well on the way to imploding .
The new President of Austria is a good right winger , and is pee'd off with Brussels .
Italy is hinting at a referendum.
Poland , Hungary and other former eastern bloc countries are showing signs of unrest , and are refusing to take "refugees" - You know , the 30 year old "children" with beards.

The E.U. is going to fall like a house of cards , and the sooner , the better ! :D

Ketron, you don't half talk crap, and you can't bother to make even the most rudimentary trawls via Google. The following is from Wikipedia (underlined and bold type by me):
Van der Bellen has described himself as a centrist liberal and supports green and social liberal policies. As discussed in his 2015 book, he is supportive of the European Union and advocates European federalism. During the presidential election, he appealed to the political centre and was endorsed by the leaders of both the conservative Austrian People's Party and the Social Democratic Party. Van der Bellen is the second green president of a European Union country (after Raimonds Vējonis of Latvia) and the first to be directly elected by popular vote.

As usual Mrs Nelson ....You are having trouble grasping reality !

The countries that are disenchanted , are "because" they can see the rotten , corrupt E.U. for what it is .Nobody mentioned immigrants , but at least Poland , Hungary and Bulgaria are refusing to take any more .

The reason it`s been a success is because of you guys and of course the fair and robust moderation by Gary.
Term is, it WAS a success. It is now a failure. Little traffic or helpful posts. If you look at the type of help people offer on other local forums (one in Quesada springs to mind), helpful & no 'in house' fighting.

Gary does not have the time / energy to moderate - so as PeteKnight mentions - fallen into a state of disrepair.

Social media for one, has given this site a kick in - namely facebook and its many local groups. For any forum to succeed now, needs a lot more marketing & social network integration. This site would need a ground up rebuild.

A friend of mine works for Anglo Info - which is one of the worlds biggest expat sites, with multiple forums in countries & areas - twice in the last 3 years have they 're-invented' the websites in order to wrestle back traffic. Spent fortunes.

I for one, if moderating this forum would probably have kicked off half the posters in the politics section - just nasty, but that is what happens when not moderated.

Hi All

On the 8/12/2017 we will be closing this forum down!

I have tried to convince Gary to keep it going even on our cheaper server but I dont think Gary wants the hassle any more and I cannot blame him.

I have made several suggestions and I have several idea but without Gary's consent I cannot use any of the information here. However, if you guys want me to set up an alternative forum where you can start afresh then let me know and I will have a look info it.

Email me at forum@gohost4u.com if youre interested in this and or able to help with running/moderating/financing it.

Thanks for all your support over the years!

Hi Mark,

So many people get their information from this forum and it would be a shame to loos it but I do understand why it is happening.

Thanks for the offer of doing something, may I suggest starting a Facebook page and post the link here.T he page would be used for people to find the new web address for the new forum if you do get it up and going. I am sorry but I wouldn't be in a position to help but I do wish you well with it.
