Any jokes about or related to Albufeira anyone...?
 
Sorry but we've been getting PMs from people feeling this topic is not what they expected to find on a Forum about Albufeira.
 
Although this is of some fun, this isn't quite the place to post jokes or personal comments and feelings. Please, use Private Messaging for personal matters or unrelated to the topics of the forum.
 
There are tons of places on the Internet where people can find and share jokes and stuff.
Don't you agree?

Please understand were not telling anyone to quit participating; its just a request from several users and visitors not to wander off so much from the information theyre looking for and that many have found through the very valuable posts made by regular users on this forum.

I hope everyone understand our position and point of view on this issue

How about losing the Euro 2008 section, not used since July and a bit dated now, and have a topic for natter etc as has been asked for before.

Surely a visitor realy seeking info would not bother clicking on a topic headed Avril wants a joke and would click more meanigful topics.

If the Euro 2008 is replaced, maybe it could be given a name to reflect the not so newsy and info related content that would appear.

 Admin : Or would it be ok if we carry this topic on in the Wish List  section under either "Good polite fun, informative natter" or "Miscellaneous Chit Chat".

I can agree with Petes post that surely a visitor seeking info wouldnt bother clicking on Avril Wants A Joke. Obviously someone complaining is being picky I thinks, but never mind.

Goodness gracious me !  what is up with people, have they not got anything else bettter to do than to complain, if they dont like what they read then go to another website. we are not forcing them to reading the forums.
If we all stopped the fun and the contributions to the forum then the what would happen, this forum and its users would just dwindle off into obscurity. its the people on here at present what make the forum what it is today. without these people the forum would be rendered useless.
maybe if we all put Albufeira down and gave it nothing but negativity like some folk have done recently then thats ok but to have a bit of fun....oooohhh a big NO-NO.
