As most people know although Nuts does have our own Facebook and Twitter sites, we aren't the best in the world at using them, as most of us behind the scenes really just like to use the forum itself to share our news and views of the team and to have a laugh or three along the way.

Well we would like to grow the forum to attract more people and posts - to continue to make the site better for us all - and we know Facebook and Twitter would help on this by getting us more widely known.

We have from time to time requested volunteers who do have an active interest in FB or twitter to step forward and help us but as I suspected, most people who post on forums like forums best - those who post on FB similarly like FB best and the same applies to twitter.

So I find myself delighted to announce that we've discovered a bloody good Wanderers Facebook site called Reebok Roar, who are happy to promote Nuts on their site and obviously we are more than happy to do the same for them on here!

Funnily enough there does seem to be strong similarity between our two sites, both were set up by the request of others who were unhappy with the sites they were on before; Both were established mainly through word of mouth; Both are in it for the love of it, with no intention of trying to make any money from it.

The Admin of the site is our newest member 'tunnsterbwfc', who I am sure will be more than happy to welcome any FB users we have to his site and sort out any teething troubles you may have.

It is not our intention to shelve our own FB account and if there is any interest in helping us out with it please let me know - but we want to take this opportunity of working with 'Tunnster' now whilst it is in the best interests of both our sites to promote each other (Hope we are using much more of the 'promote' word in the next month or two in a different context!).

Reebok Roar is a friendly and welcoming community some of whom meet up to go to games together.

So any FB fans out there please join the site and pass the message on to your family and friends (and don't forget to tell them about us at the same time!

The link to the site is below.

We would like to encourage that any news we have on our forum is passed on and shared with 'Roar' and similarly Roar will share any news and views they have with us too!

Enjoy!

If you have any sort of a problem Glos, pm 'tunnsterbwfc' on here and he'll be more than happy to sort things out for you.

It's a very decent site to be honest and I'm not just saying that for effect, I really mean lt.

Hi Dave - Welcome to Bolton Nuts

Glad you have signed up here and hope you post some of your match reports here Smile

Thanks for the welcome, yeah, we're quite proud with what we have done with the Group, its started to grow a lot recently, more than we ever expected really. Me and Richard who joined me early on to start the group put a lot of time into it and its starting to all pay off now, we also have Stephen who has recently been 'promoted' to admin to share the increasing load. I do match reports for every home game, their nothing professional and purely my thoughts on what I've seen at the game, people seem to like them though so they'll keep on coming, if your on the group, you'll find match reports for every home game under the files tab near the top of the group.
Never been a big user of forums really, so still finding my feet around here, but it all looks like good banter and a lot of love for the club!

Hello and welcome Paul.

I can change your user name on here very easily if you would like?

Anyway, appreciate the kind words about 'Nuts' both on here and on 'Roar' and look forward to a long and hopefully mutually beneficial link-up between our two sites.

Maybe the sites should merge, I'm not on Facebook, but it sounds like Roar have a big community on there, maybe we should become Reebok Roar website and forum and they stay the Facebook face of the operation?

*I suggested we become Reebok Roar forum as opposed to them becoming Bolton Nuts Facebook as it sounds like they have the more well known "brand", if you know what I mean!

Just a thought, anyway.

Heck, we have a brand?! Its something to think about, personally I dont want to get too far ahead of ourselves and I think Rich would agree, we're still very much a fledgling group. Its certainly something to think about and something we would have to put to our members as well i think. I'm happy for now to just be mutual 'site' friends, promoting each other when it suits and the like, and see where we go.

Yes, I agree, maybe one day but we need to get a lot more comfortable with each others community before that happens.

Hell and welcome by the way Rich.

I personally think we operate in different spheres anyway in that I think people tend to stick in the medium they feel most comfortable in anyway - Facebookers tend to stay on FB and forumers tend to stay on forums.

We (Nuts) have been trying - and failing - for sometime to raise awareness of our site to people who may not even know we exist, one way of doing this is by spreading the word on FB.

We do have our own FB site fully established but the trouble is that non of us are avid FB users (I don't even use FB on a personal level) so the next obvious step was to find a good decent Wanderers FB site and propose a mutual raising of our profiles on each others sites - as a benefit to each other.

I don't personally envisage many people rushing to join the respective other site, because as I've said above I think if people wanted to be on FB they would already be users on there already and visa-versa for forums too! Same logic applying to twitter as well.

We also have, if the 'Roar'ers' haven't realised it yet, a number of shall we say 'characters' on here, some of which may take some getting used too if you didn't understand their 'humour' - at least I hope they aren't being serious with some of the things they come out with!

I can't say I'm proud of every post that is made on here, so I'm sure it may seem at times a bit off putting to people who don't share or history, some of us dating back on various forums a decade or more.

So for now I think the best way to progress is a warm and friendly promotion of each other’s sites for our own respective mutual benefit, as Paul suggests.

I joined the other day at it seems like a very good FB page - I have purchased a Kevin Davies mask after reading a thread on there yesterday. Pitch invasion on Saturday if we make the playoffs? Come on!

I'm not a fan of this 'Roar' page.

1)Admins picking and choosing what topics can be discussed
2)Deleting threads on a whim
3)Banning people who question their decisions
4)Having some fat bird as an admin

Poor move, Sluffy.

Points 1-3 are why people become mods. It's to be expected!

Shocked Nobody is making you read it. If you don't like it then why not just ignore it?

I read it on the recommendation of this thread - and then detailed my reasons as to why I haven't read it since.

It's quite straightforward.

I have seen no evidence of the four points you have made regarding this thread. Shocked

Oh dear, sounds to me as though you've been banned from there!

As I've said above I'm not the greatest fan of Facebook as a media, I much prefer using forums but what I've consistently seen of 'Roar' is that it is run by really decent people wanting to share news, views and opinions on our club and who aren't tolerating any trolls or personal abuse on their site.

From your reference above to one of the admin on Roar it is quite obvious that you fit into the category of person that they clearly do not want on there.

Roar is an active and rapidly expanding site run by genuine people and as such my recommendation still stands and we are proud of the continuing and ongoing links and support between our two respective sites.

No Sluffy, I am not a member, but as I said on the recommendation of this thread I took the time to check it out and found it to be a bit childlike and run in a way that I don't agree with.

You could maybe draft a letter to the cops about that, if you like?

I don't see your problem with them, I think it's a decent fan page they got set up on facebook.

You get the odd daft comment but I have only seen one topic removed and it was for good reason.

It's not a problem, it's just an observation.

If you post there, good luck to you. If not, then it's no skin off my nose.

I can understand why the Roar isnt to everyones taste and Facebook itself is very like it or loathe it. But, we've tried to build something on there and a lot of people get something out of it so we're happy with how its going. We rarely remove topics or threads, only when things get particulary nasty or heated, which we found last week with the sponsorship news. We try and keep everything as friendly and positive as we can, we want people to join and get involved so sometimes certain discussions get too personal and we dont want to put current members or new people off from contributing. If you've joined and liked it then great, if not and its not for you, thanks for looking anyway. Keep up the good work on Nuts everyone!

Hi Kane, Thank you for your feedback and it is sad to see that you didn't take to kindly to the group.
Following on from what Tunnsterbwfc has said its not everyones cup of tea and we understand that. We have recently had to remove some posts due to people being aggressive,rude or insulting people and at the end of the day we are all meant to be one big happy family Smile . I would like to say that people can talk about what they want and they can but rude people are not welcome, who are only there to cause trouble. Me and Tunny we in a group before and it was full of hate and negativity towards people not just the team and we don't want that. To every 1 bad comment we get 99 good ones and people can see what we are doing. We have had our First Meet which was a great success and people had a laugh, also 8 of us went on Soccer Am with the help of an ex member called Emma Davies.
We respect your opinions but your 4th point is....well what can I say, something that we don't like to see

Thank you for the reply - one final point - why is it not an open group?
