1) Is it possible, now that most people are logged-in, to have the article and mail bag headings highlighted in a bold blue if further responses have been added since you were last within that submission?
2) Also, how about an out-of-ten rating you can give at any time to allow supporters to register their satisfaction on all things Everton. Just a small box that would give an average 4.7 or 7.2 on the happiness scale. It would chart the rise and fall, be it post match result, injury update, or BK BS. Retrospectivly, matched up with specific dates/events from the season, it would be very interesting information to view.
3) You could also on clicking the box and have a duel rating, divided by fans' pre-stated position ? be it Anti-Moyes Brigade or Moyes Apologist.
Of course, you superior fellows who run the website have day jobs and do what you can to bring us this great site, so feel free to slap me down.
Be gone with you, Entwistle!

A permanent thread called 'IT DIDN'T FUCKING HAPPEN YOU LYING CUNT'.
I detest the way newspapers (particularly in the summer) get away completely with printing 100% invented stuff.
"JAGS SET FOR GUNNERS" (nb: 'set')
"RODWELL IN CARRICK SWOP DEAL"
Total, total, total bollocks and apparently, no comebacks.
The thing, coz we only read one paper at a time, we seem prepared to overlook one individual bullshit item per day.
However when you see hundreds of articles together in one place, ALL bollocks...well if it saves one child from buying the Mail it'll be worth it.
(plus, we could have a count up at the end of the year, find the worst offender).

Why not call it The Kenwright Column !

- an agony column
- a readers wives page
- some sort of safety mechanism that wont let you log on when you are pissed & make a fool of yourself

You could have a lovely 'Totaliser' graffic (Viewable 24/7), showing how much we've raised, next to an empty space showing our chairman's personal contribution.

Brendan, I wish that they could do a computer with a breathaliser. The number of times I have logged on bladdered and made a tit of myself is unbelievable.
Don't need the angry column, we already have a site full of angry heads, me included.

1) Re flagging threads with new stuff you haven't read... A question for Lyndon. Sounds difficult but I know they do that on some threaded discussions boards.
2) The rating thing... I thought this was something like that aewful "Thumbs Up " shite from the Official Site, but I think your intent is closer to the idea of the ToffeeWeb poll; however, we tend to let them sit around too long... and then don't get new ones up ? like now! [BTW, suggestions for TW Poll questions always welcome.
3)... errr.. Nar.
Some other good ones...
Eugene (#2): This was pretty much my original intent of our Rumour Mill; however, it's hard to implement this kind of kick-back until you know the outcome, which can be weeks or months later. We could add an Outcome Box: [Lie / Total Lie / Complete Lie]... and the totting up would be informative, but far too labor intensive! Maybe someone could pull up last season's Rumour Mill and process it for us?!?
Alex Baker (#8): Sorry but I personally can't stand reading the same thing 10, 15, 20 times on those threads that do it automatically. The numbering system works well enough for reference, methinks. The selective cut-&-paste that some do is just fine. So, sorry but that's a No.
Dennis (#10): Clunkier versions of the site from years ago had a lot more of those buttons. I guess they don't fit so well with the sicker design ethos of the WebMeister, but the web browser itself should have a way to get back to the top, where our main menu is always available. Safari does that on my iPhone, but not on the PC.
Keep 'em coming!

Now I can imagine the fun or embarrassment of all this when Tony Williams (#13) comes in gassed and posts up a video ranting on about something.
Or are we all too shy and retiring types all with imaginary identities, which means I've been posting comments to a bunch of strangers?
16 Posted 04/09/2010 at 17:40:15
What about Skype recorded messages sent through as post match reaction etc? Is that possible?
... and a GPS tool to track Big Dunc's location at all times...

Mispelling each other's names (mine is actually Antony, not Anthony) should perhaps be introduced as our equivalent of the funny handshake.
Unless anyone can think of another way ToffeeWebbers can identify each other in public (e.g. pink shirts; nervous tic at the mention of the word Kirkby; vomiting in public at the sight of red; foaming at the mouth if anyone ever whistles a tune which involves walking alone.)
Suggestions on a postcard.

26 Posted 05/09/2010 at 12:07:03
How about an old school type ToffeeWeb tie or cufflinks, or maybe a ring with a secret emblem on it, only known to the elite.

Sadly, on the downside, it would be used as another ad hominen factor in dismissing contrary arguments and views. There is already a bias toward the position that people who attend the games in the stadium have the clearest picture of proceedings, and that those who "only" watch from afar by the miracle of television are disadvantaged, biased by commentary... blind, etc.
Other locational factors could impinge, like we've already seen regarding being Irish or American... and as for living in Leeds, Hull, Newcastle, or... god forbid... Birmingham!!!
I'd vote Yes in part to try to reverse such bigotry... recognizing it would be a big ask for some.

At end of each season, there is a ToffeeWebber of the Season award for the person with highest ratings.

Robert (#26) Like the ideas. What about being able reproduce a ?Screech? pirouette, or organise a Duncan Ferguson burglar welcoming committee. And you?re right, why shouldn?t we have Toffeeweb rings? After all some people think Kopites identify each other by rings, though generally these are through their noses.

In addition to the above suggestions, could writing #23 (for example) not automatically create a link to that post? And purely because using my phone in the site a lot more... All comments fit perfectly on screen, but I have to scroll left to see who wrote what, so any chance of tweaking this slightly so name post no. And date/time above on small screens?
35 Posted 07/09/2010 at 07:14:01
This page could link to all the TW articles that they have written. Plus, like on Linkedin the individual could reveal some more information about themselves. I think this would be a powerful additional aspect arguments being put forward - especially if the Club are reading.
There are many people who write on TW who have normal professional lives so if they were to reveal a bit of this, I think it just adds more credibility to debates, specific points being made, the site and maybe Everton to read a bit more intently.
Ooh that's a good idea, no it isn't, yes it is, no it's not. I said it first, he's rubbish, no he's not.
Yeeze, it's actually harder to type like that. No it isn't, yes it is............

- A longer text box. It's easier to proofread what you write if you don't have to scroll up and down a lot.
- The removal of the html text. The auto-generated tags are quite irritating. A normal formatting style, something like what is found in MS Word, would be brilliant.
- A colour tag (based on geography) for each member. Evertonians come from all over the globe. It'll be nice if we know where one another comes from.
The number of posts each member contributes. Just for info purpose.
38 Posted 10/09/2010 at 22:50:32
You may have noticed I've posted quite a bit on TW in the last week on various articles, writing comments about this and that, based on my spontaneous reaction to a comment made.
However, as time goes on, I can find myself forgetting sometimes what I've said and which article I've said it on.
So for many regular posters, I reckon a summary area of all our own posts where they can see in list format all the posts we have written during our ToffeeWebalholic-ness addiction would be very useful to each of us.
Then if readers wanted to more about our train of thought, and the point we were trying to get across, they could refer to all the things we have said on TW in an instant. And we would be able to recall all the statements we've put out there on Toffeeweb.com
