Hi I just want to say how pleased I am that lots of new people are joining. I have noticed over the last week that there are always more people online. This makes the forum more diverse & interesting. There's always someone to chat to, which is great!
I hope everyone enjoys the forum as much as I do & all of the new people get to stay long term.
Long live the big fat RSPB forum lol
Indeed so :-)

Do you think the cold snap is getting more people roped in so to speak?
When I saw the title I thought you were commenting on how much I had eaten over Christmas. ! ;-)

In reply to Neil:
This is a great forum to use the way it should remain forever for wild birds
The former RSPB Forum was nothing but full of people who where using it as another forum of their own.
I still think a Forum membership (or a contribution) should be part of your RSPB membership

Lol Juno, no you are not looking podgy :-)
Blackbird, I can see your point, that way only serious bird fans would use the forum & use it appropriately. It would prevent spam. Sometimes we may go off on a tangent like discussing our pets etc but that is because we are a small society & are finding similarities amongst ourselves. Some people on here may be using the site appropriately to discuss birds/wildlife but do not contribute RSPB membership. They may still be interested, concerned, need advice so should we deny them them their needs for the lack of membership? I think as long as we support the staff to 'remove' inappropriate discussion the forum will remain fair.
