I spend far too much time here. And probably piss off far too many folk.

But I enjoy that so go fcuk yourselves.
You sound like the kind of weird old guy that thinks trading in an Audi and replacing it with a Volvo is a good idea!

You cants are worth the watching🤨



*Unless I'm stalking the wrong beardy weirdy and have mixed you up with someone else...

The Bounce is one of my first stops in the morning, and periodically throughout the day.

And now that I'm over the pond it's only 1875s Just Back is the only match report I read

Sad to say but I think it's largely an age thing.
Message boards are VERY old school.

Most of the younger Hibs support generally post on Twitter, Instagram etc - some still even comment on Facebook threads, but only ever in a totally entitled, overreaction, hysterical manner (just read the comments after any official Hibs post for reference).

It's pretty tragic patter really. No-one can have a discussion/debate anymore it's simply a case of "I'm right, you're wrong". These are same morons that DEMAND that they deserve better after any random Hibs defeat - cos they've been hardcore Hibees since 2016....

To bring things more up to date for those of us that are still here 💚 I'd suggest a combination of the close season, lack of signings and the unprecedented last 18 months has probably taken it's toll on some posters.
And I include myself in that category!

the Hibs chat on twitter is shockingly bad from what I’ve seen and I am a regular user of it for work

It’s an interesting topic. Digital engagement is talked about regularly at my work (falls on my pad that one 😅).

I joined this site at 17 and have remained since. Most on here will be the same regardless of age - we’re all the messageboard/online chat era. Younger ones have more instant means of communicating that most fans forums will be bypassed. Experienced generations will be using the newer communication tools too. Will it all come back together later down the line? A hink so.

Hopefully a get together at some point this season ✅
 
For a Cup final i'd reckon we'd struggle to fill 2 buses these days , back in the day it would be 7 or 8 . Not quite sure what that means but one of the things i think has changed

Brilliant young Brian, your auld pal G is totally on your page and agree amigo. Ye cannae communicate with me on Twitter or Facebook amigo as I have never ever been on them, thank fuck. The stuff I posted about the draw today, was sent to me, I took a photo, which at 68 years auld I can just about manage and passed to this splendid Hibernian forum.

I think we’ll probably be at the younger spectrum of things on here. I’m 32, not sure what age you are KP but it probably won’t be much of a difference. I think the message boards/msn style chat rooms died off slightly after I used them. I do enjoy the bounce but did feel that it changed a bit between the relegation years when things were heated and maybe people drifted away from it.

Auld Enuff Tae Know Better This Radge
It has lost its community feel. Don't know why. I still enjoy it. I use a lot of Twitter & Facebook for Hibs related stuff. Most of it not too bad. However, the first place I go to for proper Hibs analysis, debate and discussion is here. Because it's traditionally been raw and brutally honest. Lots of members have stopped posting for a number of reasons who are missed. Thankfully there's still many I enjoy. Just not as many!

I feel like most of the folks on here are the type I could have a pint and a blether/debate/arguement with - then shake hands at the end of the night and go our separate ways.

The Twitter/Facebook comments I read on Hibs sites make me truly despair.
