It was suggested that I replace the official Doves forum with a modern version at facebook using their groups feature. After 17 years the website based forums have had their day, whilst social media has made it easy for us all to be lazy at social interaction on anything other than fb or twitter.
A Doves fan forum group page has been set up here. Feel free to join, all are welcome! The website forum will stay up, it costs nothing to keep anyways so for those of you who don’t facebook its still here to use.
Whilst I’m at it, here is a snapshot of the official Doves forum through the ages from the brown board in 2001 to the lights out forum of 2006. It was brutal at times as you can see.
