Official Hereford United Forum to close

Mark Farmer has made the following statement:

The administrators of the official fans forum have taken the decision to close the Official Forum after 11 years of continual existence.

Taking certain recent events into account, and with ongoing work on the official site increasing, the forum administrators no longer feel that they have the time to moderate the forum effectively, and as a result the forum will be closed with immediate effect.

The moderators have also taken into account certain personal abuse aimed both directly, and indirectly at them, something which they feel is neither acceptable or fair. They have no wish to endure further abuse into the future.

We state very clearly that this decision has not been made by Hereford United Football Club or by any employee of HUFC, but by the moderators themselves who have increasingly less time to moderate a forum that is requiring increasingly more man hours.

We would like to thank all of the contributors to the forum over the last 11 years, we have journeyed together through both rough and smooth times, and we have come out the stronger for it. We have made many lasting friendships through the official forum and we are very sad that a few people have ruined it for the many.

The Official Hereford United FC Website will continue as per normal, supplying fans with up to date and independently sourced news, interviews, match reports and much more.

Thanks

Mark, Paul, Jamie and Jon
