I like that idea. I hadn't heard about the GC forum! That's sad news :(

Shame about the Coxon forum. I hope everyone had some notice before it shut. :(

Was it run by the same people as the old Blur forum? What a kick to the teeth. Forums are still the best way for fans to interact online.

It was shut without warning, but it was less busy than the old Blur forum, and there had been murmerings that 'management' couldn't really see the point of it. It's their call and it's fair enough really, there were only a handful of active users, and they'd support Graham's solo antics whether there's a forum running or not.

There's talk of setting up a spin-off forum, but I'm inclined to think the logical thing to do is for this board to point everyone this way. If you drew a Venn diagram and had a Graham fans circle and a Blur fans circle you'd have a fairly big ellipse in the middle, I reckon.

Apparently the forum was deemed a 'security risk' so got put to sleep like a ailing dog.

I just happen to like pornbots, but you can't please everyone. :?

They've setup a new site now. If anyone wants to talk Graham, or anything else for that matter, they can find it here:

http://www.grahamcoxon.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

At the time of writing it's got about 7 members and about 4 posts, I think. It's more micropub than Wetherspoons.

Doesn't seem like an awful lot going on.

for NINE YEARS I think it was, if it lasted just one year longer it would have lasted just as long as the Manic Street Preachers' Forever Delayed billboard that was put up in Staples Corner, London, in 2002 and abandoned until McDonald's replaced it with directions to their nearest in time for the Olympics.
