Hi All,

Please visit https://forum.fgr.co.uk/ to see the new FGR forum.

Hopefully you'll be able to 'sign up' in the top right, and go through the registration process.

Once you have an account you can post comments or start new topics, your first ever comment/reply will need authorising before it appears.

Have a look around at the New Forum, there are a few threads based on recent news at the club, just so it isn't completely empty. But there's lots that still needs adding. We can create polls, embed video and photos, all sorts of fun.

The rest of this forum is now locked, but if you have any issues signing up please comment on here.

N.B. We're fairly confident about the migration of topics from this to the new forum, that hasn't been done yet but it's next on the list.

What is the 'private' box on the sign up page for?

Do we have to tick it so that our names and birthday details etc aren't visible on our profiles?

Also, where is the general section where we can play forum games and talk about non-football things?

Correct, 'private' means only you and moderators/admins can see that info.

The 'general updates' is supposed to be the new area for this, I've renamed it to General Chat again. once you're registered we can discuss moving/renaming things if it makes sense. thread here: https://forum.fgr.co.uk/post/new-vs-old ... 1312445303

Don't be too impatient waiting for the 'verification email' - it can take 10-15 minutes.

Would it be possible to make the new forum section and thread topic titles black? I struggle reading green font.

I've made it a darker green, hopefully it's better.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
