Is that how it works? I can't ever get in. Not that I object, you're quite entitled to ration the bandwidth to those who actually stump up their fiver.

You have just been hit by the new PFP - Patron Friendly Policy.

I don’t think it’s fair that all the Patrons who contributed to this forum/server come on and find 600+ members and 400+ guests on, try to post and view, only to find their forum has slowed down.

Members are welcome to join, view and post where permitted, but with this policy Patrons will come first and if a patrons account starts to slow down, the server will kick in to lock guest and member accounts, thus ensuring Patrons accounts and forum viewing is kept smooth.

This lock might last for two minutes, or it might last for two hours. It all depends on how many Patrons are on the forum.

If you wish to become a Patron, the fee is only £5

That OWC board has been closed for unregistered guests for ages, 6 or 8 weeks?
I have to admit there was entertainment in the disgruntled threads about the November play and the eligibility issue.

That's perfectly fair. As the man (woman?) says, I can pay my fiver if it meant that much to me. It doesn't.

How can norn iron suppose to attract supporters from throughout the province whenever their fan site is blocked to view?  ???

A few things

1) I presume you mean OWC when you talk about 'their (sic) fan site'. This is only one of dozens of sites and is owned and run by a private individual, so he can let in (or not) whoever he wants. The official IFA site http://www.irishfa.com/ is available to all.

2) OWC is not blocked all the time. It has a system where it allows people on depending on how busy the server is. If it's not busy then anybody can view, if it's a bit busier then only members can view and if it's very busy then only patrons (who've paid a fiver towards the running of the site) can view. The server has been upgraded several times in the last few years but still can't cope with the demand (over 6000 members and nearly half a million posts) so this system was introduced.

3) We already have supporters from all over the province and beyond. OWC is only a small percentage of the fan base.

So after all the singing and dancing is done, both the north and south end up in third place in their groups. Both have the identical goals for and against record, with the north gaining 3 more points than the south.

Surely there is a shout that there should be one team representing this island, with the combined player pool  we would have a far bigger chance of reaching major tournaments.

Both the north and south have failed to qualify for the last FIVE european championships. Pathetic record.
