I barely recognise the people running it.

Although we do have names. Unlike pres cafe which is just looking out of the darkness like some sort of secret society

A ban for a member less than 24 hours before the closure. Not that it'll do any good as they'll be back on one of the four replacements.

Andrew Wood/The Ident Gallery + others. He alone has a profile similar to Rob's before TVF's demise IMHO.

Considering that Pres Café had got around double the registrations of TV Talk Forum at that point, it did seem like an attempt to try and not lose their status. The reason given for the PM spamming was ridiculous though, that was at least slightly amusing.

Having someone as well known as him being a major part of Pres Café inspires hope that it'll be well done and well run.

The people running TV Talk Forum couldn't be more anonymous if they actually were all called "Anonymous".

I'm just wondering who "Westcountry Plus" is...

It is interesting to see this mini 'Wild West' era for TV pres related forums come about. I've signed up for both TV Talk Forum and Prescafe, and will ultimately stay active on the one which catches on and has more interesting discussion. Its also interesting to note that the hole left by TVLF has left a vacuum for these new forums to pop up and vy for users. I certainly didn't see this in the case of TVF.

Either way, I wish both Pres Cafe and TV Talk Forum luck. I do believe, in time, one of them will unite the community as the long term successor for TVLF and TVF.

A name I remember literally right from the start of visiting pres sites back in 2000, a very long standing member of the community.

Not a huge fan of the "TV Pres" group personally after they ostracised Rob and his site for not self-hosting videos.

That and allowing "him" to be a member on there, even if he is on a one strike and you're out policy.
I didn’t get a PM ☹️ In fact the only PM I’ve ever had on TVLF was from someone called Patty O’Chair calling me a prick.
Thought this was a nice forum, clearly not.

I do find the whole war on "websnatching" a bit dull tbh.

There are times when having a YouTube vid is a lot more convenient, not least when the website hosting disappears temporarily or permanently.

It basically seems to come down to making sure they get all the plaudits, which is somewhat reminiscent of fighting over who gets the commendation at primary school.

Surely all that should matter is that you've enabled x many people to see something they're interested in, right?
