Does anyone else think Wiganworld isnt as good as it used to be its such a shame its gone down hill

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
In what way do you think it's gone down hill, Winnie?

Posted by: momac (10106)  Report abuse
Yes Winnie,I don't enjoy anything on Communicate any more..not like it
used to be,I just look at P-A-D and Album and that's about it..I and plenty
of others are fed up with the sniping at one another..what must others that
look into these boards think of Wigganers..I just don't want to be part of them.

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
I don't really know what it was like before only that there were some good posters on from what I have read and they were removed or left for some reason or other so I'm told. How is it worse now if people aren't getting banned or leaving and not posting?

Posted by: baker boy (14908) Report abuse
momac
years ago when jay 1 was posting he/she had plenty of posters who used to give him/her tremendous stick.
walshy who still post's under an alias of the fox,wanted on many occasions to see him in the white swan at pemberton.something he vigorously denies doing,both the challenging and being walshy.we with long memories know better.
that is just one instance of the former perfect wigan world.this forum as always had its fair share of clashes between different people and ideologies.
that's life.

It still has a good mainstay of knowable and helpful people that are willing to post interesting and entertaining topics from around Wigan and surrounding areas, In contrast it has the 'back benchers' who post boos and nay nays to every thread in an attempt to spoil the experience of contributing and partaking in social interaction,

bit like a room full of owd women really

Posted by: britboy (6773) Report abuse
Same here momac, I just look in on P-A-D daily and occasionally add a comment.
The members who contribute to P-A-D all power to you, keeps an ex-pat in touch.

Posted by: jouell (4693) Report abuse
Same here Winnie, Momac and Britboy, I look through on here, but it isn't the same. I do go to Downall Greeners on Places, that is where I am from, keeping up with people I knew who are also from there.. P-a-D and Album daily and that's it...

Best wishes to you all and stay warm britboy, getting a bit chilly up there..

It depends on if yoo like falling out a lot, if yoo doo, then Wigan World is for yoo .................

That rhymed

Maybe this is the topic to announce that Wigan Rejects has a new owner now, and I am not going to say who it is, but it is not me.

Does anyone who is in the know, know who it is ?

A cloo is that he is very well known on these forums, and he is a gentleman

Thank goodness most of the silly, childish bickering has eased off for the moment; especially the threads which develop into vile, vulgar name calling when a civilised argument/ debate cannot be sustained.

Posted by: momac (10106)  Report abuse
I know but...no telling tales from moi.

Posted by: jouell (4693) Report abuse
I'm pretty sure I know, very much a gentleman and very much missed...

He isnít missed thatís for sure.

I don't know what you two daft buggers are on about, but he is still very much on here .....

Posted by: firefox (77) Report abuse
I can only concur with the original poster. Few post on the boards for the same reason, the peurility of the regular culprits.

I do wish the moderators would start to crack down on them, they are destroying a very good site. A site that is open to the public. God knows what their grandchildren of think of the immaturity of their grandparent's petty sniping

WW as had its peaks and troughs over the years and at this time is in a deep trench

So some think it has gone down hill

and some do not.....

Will we be having our customary food fight over this difference of opinion?

Posted by: gaffer (6135)   Report abuse
In the early days it was a collegiate message board. It was respectful,interesting and informative.
Nowadays it is marred by a few whose bitterness and ignorance would be more at home adding comments to a toilet wall in an approved school.

Posted by: broady (14978)   Report abuse
Why? If someone is missed does that not mean they have gone?? So conversely that means they are still here. Comprende?? See the said person's earlier post!!!!

Wiganword = "borough"!

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
When they got rid of the "nasty uns" bearing in mind that people were being attacked, and even threatened by these lot, it did go quiet but i preferred it that way'

Then a few months ago it started again, and its continuing, for any poster that as there own opinion.

Nobody is going to post on a site were "some people", attack you, get personal and threaten thing, all because you have a different opinion or you stand up for yourself.

Anne, i have the feeling it won't last long

Oh forgot to say hello peepers👀👀👀👀👀👀

Posted by: priscus (7464) Report abuse
With respect to the Wigan-Rejects comment, he certainly will be missed if his new commitments preclude his valued input continuing on here.

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
So may I ask those complaining about the bickering who are the ones doing the bickering? Names would be helpful to the moderators/owners if they knew who you actually have complaints about. It's not much use if you just complain about them without naming them.

Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
Do you do any bickering Terry?

Take your time answering if you have to

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
Of course I do.

Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
So why ask for names when you know you are a guilty party?

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
Because there isn't just me is there?

Anymore names folks?

Posted by: 0 years (3519) Report abuse
Winnie,

Do you think it's beacuse some posters start threads in an attempt to light the blue touch paper and stand well back to watch other posters bicker without having the good grace to answer questions asked of them within said thread?

Just asking like.

Posted by: tomplum (5249)  Report abuse
Terry is allowed a bicker because, he posts a lot of interesting stuff where as the bickerers we are talking about just bicker full stop, for instance if I post,

" I saw a black cat today" sledge would say, " no you did't, I saw the same cat and it had a while nose "

Posted by: broady (14978)   Report abuse
Tomplum,
Presumably you understand what I said about you not being missed.

Posted by: tomplum (5249)  Report abuse
yes of course broady, Mrs Plum often asks, " did you miss me Tom" to which I answer, " I never threw anything at you dear" Its all fun in our house,,

Posted by: broady (14978)   Report abuse
Keep it up.

Posted by: jouell (4693) Report abuse
I give up

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (3813) Report abuse
jouell

Do you not know who it is ?

Posted by: tomplum (5249)  Report abuse
the language of the bickerer, is bicker bicker bick
its all very repetitive, and gets on folkes wicks
don't suffer theses fools lightly
don't let them cloud your day
get over to the rejects
where people smile all day

Posted by: baker boy (14908) Report abuse
SD you don't like to bicker do you.never defamed any poster.

Posted by: kathpressey (4984)  Report abuse
I just can't see the fun in bickering and there are obviously many who see his as a pleasant past time. Life is too short to spend it being nasty to others.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
There's a difference between bickering and what "some people" come out with.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (3813) Report abuse
A bicker a day keeps the doctor away

"Life is too short to spend it being nasty to others."

I have most of the bickerers on ignore and only have to read the nicer posters

Posted by: Anne (3561)  Report abuse
I wouldn't put them on ignore. That would be admitting they have defeated me.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
That's why I don't put them on ignore, anne

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
Good thread, Winnie. It certainly got people bick...talking.

Thank you Tomplum, even though I've only been on WW a relatively short time I do consider myself a worthy contributor, I'm always willing to debate anything with anyone until the use of profanities start being used or being asked to meet people for a fight as has been done on several occasions, with being called a racist thrown in for good measure, which I am not and I don't suffer fools lightly.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
Not as many posts as I thought 🤔🤔 🤔 🤔

Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
If anyone uses profanities with me, or describes me as racist or offers me out I just ignore them.

Reason?.....I am above all that.

You should try it sometime Terry

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
I'm surprised the ones that do attack people have not posted, well not all of them.

Posted by: jarvo (29310)  Report abuse
What an utterly ridiculous thread this is.

How sad.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
What I find ridiculous is the people that attack people and get nasty haven't posted there view... Probably guilty conscious

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
Well I've never known this before.

Posted by: baker boy (14908) Report abuse
i have no poster on ignore,why, because if they seem fit to post their views that is their right.whether i take any notice is another matter.people keep posting "mr kipling"whoever he may be. i have never had any connection with the baking industry,but small minds like to think they are amusing,well let them smile at my seeming expense.
they are completely wrong.

Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
Did Mickyeast ever have a connection though?

Hhmmmmmm?

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
Kipling, doh!!!

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
I don't think "some people" have posted because they no the thread is aimed at them.

I'm still here , I think most of the posts start ok, then its like a pair of leaking wellies, very uncomfortable

Your not one of the "nasty uns" dave

You not got nasty, personal and threatening or ripped into folk when you first came on, when you've not got your own way

I'm enjoying posting without being attacked

Ive nearly been on ten years basil ,never fell out with anybody ,well I dont think so, thank you for that ,lifes to short and all that, ha .

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
Well me and Mrs brush bicker but we don't get nasty and personal, like "some people" on here, do.

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
No more names added of the culprits who are bringing the site down by those complaining about the site going down hill I see.

I take it then that the site isn't going down hill and very little bickering is or has been happening, the moderators must be satisfied with the way things have been and are or they would have stepped in.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
Guilty conscious, that's why none of the people, who attack and get personal, haven't posted

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
It's certainly gone down hill over the last few months.

Posted by: firefox (77) Report abuse
The biggest antagonist/problem to this site being more userfriendly has posted thirteen times on this thread alone.

Will certainly try my best.

Posted by: Anne (3561)  Report abuse
TerryW..... twice you have asked for names of the disruptive posters, quoting it would help moderators/admin. OK I will name whom I consider them to be but only for the ears of admin. That is what the complaint button is for. One poster has identified a certain person in all but name but this method is not the way to deal with this problem.i.m.o.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
OMG, I think the sun, and the thought of sun, is having an effect on these 2, normally they have a go at me as soon as I post.

I wonder if they've Backtracked, life someone else on here, and are trying to come over proper, again like someone on here as tried to do.

Posted by: firefox (77) Report abuse
Anne, that is a good post. Naming the individual will only lead to a barrage of abuse. I will follow your lead and notify the Admin. If everyone affected made a complaint, maybe the problem will be removed.

Posted by: broady (14978)   Report abuse
What a pathetic specimen. Goading people all day.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
We all know who spoils the site with their attacks on certain people, it's just a shame that "some people" won't actually admit to being nasty to people who have a different opinion

I still use Wiganworld a lot for my family research but my pet hate about this site is when people ask for help with family trees then dont acknowledge the research you have done fro them ,i dont think people realise how much work is put in too it and i do it for FREE !!!!

Hear hear Winnie...there are some very ungrateful people.I don't think
thank you is in their vocabulary.

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
Good post, Anne. I appreciate your input and on second thoughts your way maybe better. I did actually email the admin to complain about being goaded and being named as another person who wasn't on WW any longer. It was suggested I put him on ignore, for this I have been goaded with the name of Tiny Tears or cry baby by him, it doesn't bother me but it just shows the mentality of the person. As you can see he's continually posted on this thread just to goad people.

Posted by: basil brush (12644) Report abuse
Well if the people who you have been nasty/personal to went to admin you would have gone a long time ago

Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
Interesting comment Terry, but it begs the question. If being goaded doesn't bother you why do you feel the need to complain to admin? The only other consideration could be vindictiveness maybe?...

Me.....?

Several people goad me and say I am someone else practically every day , yourself included but I have never felt the urge to complain to admin.

Are you not man enough to rise above it al?...........like I do?



Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
I'm man enough to use my real name what say you?






Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
What say I?

I say I am man enough not to criticise someoneís behaviour then behave in the same way myself, furthermore I say that I am man enough not to complain to admin when people say things about me that are not true.

Posted by: TerryW (2521) Report abuse
No you're not. You can't even tell the truth about who you are even when you were caught out.

Come back with your real name and I may take you seriously. You can't, won't, daren't so stop wasting peoples time with your drivel.

Posted by: Stardelta (6956) Report abuse
I did actually email the admin to complain about being goaded and being named as another person who wasn't on WW any longer.


I have put up with this for years Terry, including a fair share from you.........correct but I don't bother admin about it.

I could add a lot to this, but I won't. People can draw their own conclusions as to what sort of person you really are.
