I know that there are people who say it does good things...rallying support for good causes etc, but to me it is mostly vain and vacuous.
Not for me.Anyway right now I am busy with things in real life.....that is why I have been less active on here.
Have you ever tried Facebook?

So no, I haven't tried it.
I haven't tried tripe either, but I know from the look of it that it would not be to my taste.

Re: How the mighty has fallen

Why does anyone have to have to make a choice between Accyweb and Hyndburn Chat? I'm quite happily a member of both and so are a lot of other people. They're totally different animals and are both highly enjoyable and worthwhile in their own separate ways!

I don't like tripe either, but I tried it when I was a child. Facebook is what you make of it, just like Accrington Web.

I am sure that many of the converts to Hyndburn Chat(that name puts me off right away) were the ones who did the slanging, swearing, etc that they do not get away with now.

There has always been a choice and those who have gone over to FB have made theirs.
Hi Margaret. No they weren't poached, they had just got fed up with all the slanging and back biting that goes on on here, and the way its run there is no need for any of them to try to chnge it, and none of the trouble makers on here are members of Hyndburn Chat, sorry you don't like the name but what else could we call it.

I just have not got the time for both in my life.......and if I did have time I would not choose to spend it on FB.
For those who have the time (and the inclination) that is fine.......but it does seem that some former members have chosen one over the other.

I don't know what they could call it.
And it doesn't really matter because I won't be part of it.
The back biting and slanging was done by those who have now left and Garinda would freely admit that he could be as acid tongued as the next person,(he was a past master of the put down) but hey he won't have it on his page of FB...that strikes me as being a bit hypocritical.

There has always(as far as I am aware) been a channel to deal with those who are unruly and it has been used.

Re: How the mighty has fallen

Facebook is all very well as an instant chat thing but forums are far better for archiving material.

I operate several website on which we archive material from years gone by and we have been asked to open Facebook versions. Have you ever tried to find material, on Facebook, which was posted last year? We have and found such searches to be impossible so we will stick with websites where our archive material is easily found by the next generation of interested parties.

you are correct you do not get invited you ask to join by clicking join group


also there is bickering etc its just dealt with quickly

usually the person been an asshole gets a temporary ban which leads to a permanent ban if they continue

people tend to speak more carefully on facebook not because of any special rules but because its in their real name when they post

Re: How the mighty has fallen

I have now become a member of Hyndburn Chat, to see if I am missing anything, and I have quickly come to the conclusion that it is just a dis-jointed collection of day to day life. This is all very well for folks who have nowt better to do than gossip all day but for normal folks, I suspect it is just a passing phase. The only problem is, there is no means of reference to past events or comments.

Re: How the mighty has fallen

If you don't like Facebook, don't use it. If you like Facebook but don't like Hyndburn Chat, then don't use Hyndburn Chat. I like both, so I guess I am someone with nowt better to do than gossip all day, unlike normal folks.

Re: How the mighty has fallen

AW has its uses and hyndburn chat has its uses

you get from it what you want

perhaps sunday night at a bank holiday weekend wasnt the best time to join a group to see what its about but iv been a member since it started and have yet to hear anyone spreading gossip on it..

theres talking , some brief conversations that others jump in and contribute to which was the whole point of the internet been created

communication and bringing people together

possibly porn too

regardless if folk dont like it they can tick the box to leave the group..No ones making anyone stay who dosnt want to be there

one thing it does have is more of a councilor presence and mp presence as well as the ex mayor so if your interested in local events they get mentioned more there so information is more up to date on local things
