    So, what is it?

    Clearly it’s the biggest clue-hint yet as to what’s coming at 4.00pm on Monday…

    Or a bloody big Red Herring…

    For anyone who didn’t notice it’s at the end of todays ‘The sound of smeggers’ update’

    Oddly, I read the update earlier and whilst audio CD’s are a damned good idea, they are not really my cup of tea.
    Something made me pop back later though and I now wonder if the ‘all new’ registered somewhere in the back of my mind cos it didn’t click at lunch time…

    More cunning than a sack full of Polymorphs if you ask me

    We’re all gonna get sucked into a black hole. That’s what’s going to happen.

    I was half expecting a barage of speculation about what ‘all new’ may or may not actually mean. Instead of course, the webboard shows little interest in what’s happening around it and continues to spiral ever closer to mediocrity and a general lack of interest in anything new regarding Dwarf.
    Many of the regulars have been there for years and seem oblivious to the fact that the site they frequent, often daily, could change beyond all recognition.
    Obviously we wont know until Monday what changes will take place if any and whether the board will be effected at all but I cant help feeling come Tuesday, several people will wake up and find their world has changed and not have the faintest idea why.
    Having been slightly dubious about change and the need for change, I have to say I’m actually looking forward to this.

    Yes, the fact that people can ask questions on the Webboard that are quite readily and clearly answered on the main TOS site has always staggered me somewhat…

    A while back, Andrew reported huge numbers of weekly hits on the main site but few of these hitters arrive on the webboard it seems and those that do, seldomly stop long..
    This could be due to a number of reasons and I guess most of these are interested in news on Dwarf rather than being sociable which is perfectly natural of course.
    As a result the board has become more of a general social area than a Dwarf forum and I think this is quite noticeable and has been edging that way for some time.
    I’m as guilty as anyone when it comes to going off topic and talking crap but the scales have been tipping towards generality for ages. What does surprise me though is the feeling that many of the regulars dont even bother reading the Friday updates judging by the responce when someone does mention them…

    It feels as though the BBC comment and subsequent news about the Movie and the Series of Red Dwarf killed the casual fan. But it could be that a generation of fans have grown up so to speak, and moved on, married, baby’s and work have moved them away. I think the constant questions has nothing to do with lack of intrest on the forums, people have been asking about the Movie every week for years! I think they want a personal responce from someone in charge; Andrew. Just looking doesn’t fill everybody with the information they need.

    If indeed it is a new site, I’m sure this could only do more good for fans. The navigation is ok on co.uk but as you get deeper the Time Hole section and the Black Box section could be as one, you get the feeling it’s duplicated even though it’s not. I could go on but I’m sure if it is a new site the people in charge have already thought about every detail.

    We get weekly updates from a show that finished 10 years ago. I find that amazing and have massive respect for GNP for still taking the time to do this. A new home to place the history of Red Dwarf. Yes please!

    Hope to Cloister a new forum is included. WebBoards are unusable. Hell, they were unusable at the turn of the millennium in 2001 and haven’t developed at all in the meantime as vBulletin, phpbb, etc have…

    I stay away from the WebBoards because of the horrible, horrible interface. So far as I’m concerned, G&T is the official Red Dwarf Forum.

    There is a possibility I’m being secretly ironic here.

    the clock on the countdown seems to be timed in with local time- it’s already past the time for me, and of course nothing has changed…
