    Welcome all of you 'newbies' from RTG

    Your visit might be brief . . . . you might not like it here, but I/we hope that you enjoy our (mainly) friendly forum while you're here :emoticon-0148-yes:

    It's nowhere near as busy as RTG, it's much more relaxed and you may become bored, but hopefully not and you stay and contribute long term, which in turn would enhance the overall enjoyment for us all :emoticon-0105-wink:

    Anyway, you're all welcome <hug>

    It'll be canny if it stays away from the pure football slagfest.

    Welcome one and all - nice to have some new blood on the board. Look forward to arguing points with some and agreeing with others no doubt!

    Hi. I'm one of the new members. Any way I can stop getting emails to alert me when someone interacts with my posts.

    Hello all. Seems strange being a newbie instead of an old timer.

    Cheers Gordon...

    I'm sure that you will soon find the argumentative ones out from the genuine posters who are only interested in all things SAFC...

    Thanks for the warm welcome:)

    Have tried loads of forums and this has been my favourite (not cis I’m a mod, far from it) We have occasional idiots and you’ll no doubt get to know some of the posters over time. Been dead easy modding this board as the people get on and, when they disagree, act like grown ups and accept opinions differ.

    Having had a look at RTG that comes across as a crazy busy pub in the city centre whereas on here its like a nice country pub in the Lake District. Full of the old regulars with the odd village idiot (no names).

    I followed the crowd like a sheep.
    I hope the boring stalkers of the esteemed Reiver/Smug in boots are dealt with ruthlessly here.
    Looking forward to a civilised forum.

    The difference on here is that we can have disagreements without slagging off and being called a Mag..
    Loads on here have met up for beers over the years and have managed not to punch each others lights out..

    Hi thanks for the welcome.

    I'd been lurking over on RTG for years but never registered as I don't have a company type email address, I just have msn.com. So I recognise a few names and posting styles already here.
