    Default Whatever happened to...

    Some of the old posters/contributors. Had a quick squizz through the dusty archives earlier and pulled out

    • Hopwas
    • Filo
    • Youngie
    • Tilly-Miss
    • DPV
    • Manky Badger



    Anyone know their whereabouts? Hopwas, especially, posted quite a bit.

    Whatever happened to...?

    Hopwas is based in Tamworth. I wonder if he's up for Nottingham? Maybe we could PM him

    Manky Badger is still about, but doesn't seem to go to the pub as much. Our paths almost cross:he's got friends in our village, who I vaguely know, but I've never met 'im!

    I think Hoppy was last seen trailblazing across some non-league footy forum spouting the merits of AFC Tamworth.

    Excluding myself, I think that at the end of 2009 these were the names of the 50 most prolific posters on the gnarly piece of tat I used to call home. I’m sure I’ve missed a few, but I think I’ve pretty much nailed it.

    How many now post on here and are there any names on the list that post on here under different monikers that we may not know about?

    As Roger has said, Hopwas is currently posting prolifically under a different moniker on the Conference Forum.

    Beeronaut and Rainlight are the same person, for what that's worth. Reassuringly, a good number of the monikers are over here with us.

    It seems that once we get people over here, they don't go back!

    Wonder if it might be worth PM'ing some of the above? I know I did a handful a while back.
