Congratulations to all concerned on setting up a message board which is free from annoying pop-up advertising. The old site became too difficult to use because of this. I accessed clarets mad usually every other day to catch up on the latest clarets gossip and banter. I am sure the new site will go from strength to strength and be a great place to access all the latest news and find out everything and anything you wanted to know that's claret and blue. Hopefully I'll be posting messages now. Up the clarets!

Well done, delighted you have done this.

I used to lurve CM, but bit by bit, they made it nigh on impossible to use. Shame really, as the match reports were first class, as were quite a lot of the features. It's not like they weren't warned or owt!

Nice website. Well done all.

I have a request/suggestion, which you may have considered. For the messageboard, I wonder if you'd consider at some stage splitting it in to categories by subject. This is a fairly common practice on some other football messageboards and I've always thought it works well. Categories could be things like 'Squad, Games, Non-football, etc'.

One of the great things about this community of users is how active they are but from time to time I do think it makes it hard to follow threads and things quickly get lost - there are often many duplicate threads which categorisation could help. For instance, it may be nice to have a 'Scott Arfield' thread which could grow over time with people adding to the conversation, rather than people feeling the need to post a new thread every time he scores a worldie.

May not be possible and appreciate there are ups and downs with any format.

Anyway, thanks to the founders and administrators of this new site.

Well done to all those that made this possible. CM had sadly become nigh on impossible to use thanks to those at FM with there stupid ads plastered all over.

Here's to a new beginning for us Mad Clarets :)

Well done folks. I was a former clarets madder under a different username but site got too clunky and very tedious. Early signs are that this could develop into an excellent forum.

Brilliant CT and Co.

My heart sank this morning when I visited CM. It reminded me of when CT finished with the cisa site.

CM was built up superbly and I know this will likewise.

Great to see so many of the original cast are here. Thanks to all involved. UTC.

I didn't often post on the old site, but lurked a lot and agree with everything that has been said.

Uptheclarets is already a great improvement and I hope it's a success for all involved - as well as the wider Claret and Blue community :D

Hello!! Sorry it's taken me so long to write my first post as I signed up a few weeks ago. This site is so much better, I'd given up trying to access CM on my phone and tablet because of those darn adverts. Well done to those who've worked to find us a new, cleaner and more accessible platform.

Hi All, was a long time lurker on CM after being active for a while a few years previous - agree with the sentiment that this is a much better platform all round. Heres to hopefully a very Clarety future on and off the board :)

Also, Is there a way of seeing the number of the post?

:oops:

Edit - Think I've sorted it.

What do the little icons to the left of the posts mean?

First thoughts on clicking on here - "Oh, thank God, they are using phpBB". The old forum was pretty horrific, even with an ad-blocker. I'd pretty much given up.

I'd echo the request for different forums for Off Topic, match tickets/travel etc, but having run a couple of phpBB boards in the past, it takes a bit of getting used to from the admin side so I think CT will have enough on his plate for the moment.

Oh, and if jordan12rhodes turns up, tell him to **** off, will you?

Apparently, FTA, a site has to be in existence/ operational for six months before NEWSNOW put it up on their site.

He and others have done a fantastic job over the years keeping us exiles up to date with developments at TM and long may it continue throughout our Premier League years. :)

Thanks to all who have worked to start up this new site. Like many other, my visits to CM were few and far between due to the 'user experience'. I was on that site for 11 years and for most of that was still in the RN, now I work in London and I really appreciate a good site to keep me up to speed with happenings at TM, the banter and ability to still feel part of the Claret world whilst being away. Great work everyone and UTC!

p.s. Despite being a 'civvy' for 4 years now, I just couldn't bear to change my username ha ha!

This site seems to be an answer to that and reflects the local, family, community biased nature of our wonderful football club - well done to all involved in setting this up.
