Welcome to the TalkSwindon.org online community forum
« on: March 30, 2006, 04:13:26 pm »
Welcome to TalkSwindon.org, Swindons newest online community.

The TalkSwindon forum is provided as a meeting place where enquiring Swindonians can discuss pretty much whatever they like.  At present there is a fair bit of discussion centering on Swindons two Labour MP’s, and those who wish to replace them at the next General Election.

Don’t be put off by political debating or members having a good moan at the council/traffic wardens/speed cameras etc…. all of those topics, and more, will live down at the other end of the forum, in ‘Speakers Corner’.

All the lighter, general interest topics and chat will be up at this end of the forum, the shallow end, and the heavier topics will remain in the deep end……lifeguards will be on duty to rescue those who flounder there.

The forums scope of interest will expand as its membership grows, so if you feel there is a need, or demand for a particular forum, e.g a ‘Pets Corner’, or ‘My Car Won’t Start’,…..then please, by all means suggest it !

I’m sure we will want to add much more to this post as time goes by……so check back every now and again for updates.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the TalkSwindon forum.

Good site - though the name is almost identical to the already established www.swindontalk.com ?!

Yes, there's a funny story behind that.... it was entirely accidental that talkswindon.org bears a similar url

However, what's done is done and we don't see it as presenting a problem, Talkswindon has no intention of poaching members or sponsors from other forums :angel:

The forum seems to be growing nicely with many diverse and interesting suggestions for new categorys and boards  :)

Membership is growing steadily, helped in part by the recent local elections and good quality informative campaigning by groups like no2id.

The forum software is working well, (touchwood), and everyone seems to be getting to grips with the mechanics of using the forum...although there is a good 'onboard' help section, useful for beginers and experts alike...a lot of good information and 'tools' can be found there.

We'd like to thank everyone who has contributed so much to Talkswindon.org in such a short space of time.....it's proving to be a worthwhile venue for many people, the admin team included.

Tell your friends !

Thank you.  :)

Today we published the:


The 2006 Talkswindon Chrimbo Quiz


Its purely for fun, and gives us a chance to gently test-drive the Talkswindon survey site.
