hi all,

I was wondering if, given that many of us are registered at R2OK and jezza's exiles, whether it would be worth trying to build bridges between the two boards. This board is obviously more aimed at the non- NACA boards.

What do you think?

What sort of bridge?

I mean there's a link somewhere and we have a News and Affairs if they wanted to share something, so what else?

Apparently a lot of their members don't listen to Jeremy Vine, indeed don't listen to Radio 2 Shocked

Hi Id,

As far as I know there is a good relationship between the two boards.

We set up this board a few days after the exile board was set up: The exiles boards primarily catering for the old NACA patrons, and this board catering for the Shows and Music patrons (with a board or two for the books and theater users too.)

While we were setting up, we had some helpful support from BDG from the exiles board, and have at no point been in competition.

We are both here to stay, offering completely different boards and there is absolutely no tension between any of us. I wonder if I have misread the sentence 'Build bridges.'

I think Iain meant a link of some kind rather than building bridges.

yup. i just wondered if a more prominent place could be given to a link to the other place so that those like me, become aware of it more easily.

Ian and all,

Well, we can improve our links to the Jezzasexiles board this weekend as we have been invited to join in their Sunday Quiz. Our own VictorLaslo is the quizmaster. Anyone logged in to Jezza's at 8pm can join in this Sunday at 8pm, Victor has a prepared list of HIGNFY-type news-related questions and folks just answer or respond.

If enough folks from here get involved them we might have a team event at a later date.

Anyone interested? If so you'll have to register at Jezzasexiles:

Just a bit of fun folks.

We did a few of these quizzes on the old R2 boards, but they've taken off quite well over on Exilles.

Pop over and have a look, join in and enjoy it, no prizes of course, not unless you count the virtual packet of pork scratchings and the everlasting admiration of the other participents.

See you in the Drum and Monkey at 8pm on Sunday the 7th.

Vic

Ps Check out the rules beforehand.

Toggy, being a member of both boards has it's advantages. It's like having two locals!
