A new interactive site has been under consideration for a significant length of time.

It is hoped that this site will provide much more functionality for the visitors who truly want to contribute to the site.
The motivation is to replace the Guestbook facility which, in days gone by, was a happy playground for the true fans. The openness of the guestbook was ultimately its downfall. Spammers, self-appointed wit-merchants, and those engaging in defamatory activities made it unusable.

It has become too risky to host some material on the server, what with litigious activity becoming more normal on the 'net. The moderation work (removal of dodgy material) generated a low effort:reward ratio.
That said, the new advantages outweigh previous problems - for the real fan/visitor who want to value-add or even just take part in this site.
Believe it or not, this is more about protecting the site for use by the true fans, to protect the site from closure by the hosts, and to protect the band from legal action, (ok and reducing the amount of work for the admin.) It's your site – you’re fully invited to use it.

OK, there's actually only One Forum, and Four Message Boards within this.

One was decommissioned having had only one topic in a month.

This concept was based upon the idea of one interested customer. It's an attempt to compartmentalise the site for quicker access to stuff the reader wants to get to.

One Message Board is for the discussion for Horslips Related stuff.

One for general arseaboutology - anything goes.

One is to permit potential users to discuss site problems (this may get moved or deleted as the Frequently Asked Questions takes more shape. )

One is to permit the occasional viewer the occasional post - this will be removed as soon as it is misused by the casual, unwanted visitor.

One is to give some guidance on the usage of the site and "rules" - this will also disappear when the FAQ takes proper shape.

Technically there will be two Message Boards in normal Use.
