Unitt.net set to Close
« on: October 08, 2008, 12:37:24 PM »
The fan site Rachel Unitt.net is set to close in the new year its just been announced so if there are any pictures or messages you want to keep nows the time to go in and get them...

In a recent e-mail the site moderator wrote...

"At this time, I would firstly like to thank Rob, Stu, Sarah, Pj, Luce, for
their help with the site over the past 3 years, without your support and
help, id have probably given up in the earlier days...
Then a big thank you to everyone else who contributed to the site or the
forum - its you that made the site and forum the success it was...

Finally, keep supporting Rach and Woody and the womens game

Best wishes

Martyn"

It was very busy at one stage with people like PJ, Freddie and John (gooner4ever) posting a lot but then it went downhill once those three stopped posting.

Actually quite a few people posted on it and it was more active in its heyday than this forum is now...I think Unitt not appearing in the World Cup probably put paid to it...maybe hoped if she had paid that might have generated new interest for it but it wasn't to be...

Not according to the user list I looked at just now. Only 7 users had 1,000 or more posts with it rising to 22 users for 100 or more posts. Not a lot really when most of the users with those figures were posting between 2005-06. The site went live in 2005 remember. For a while now it had only been you posting. I stopped posting on that site a couple of years ago and I'm still listed in the top 3 of posts lol

If you go through the membership of this there are only a few people with a lot of posts.  Even at the end there were more on itthan just me but it was a shame that the forum died away but it did have brief sparks of life during the WC and the PL Cup final...I don't think Unitt dying her hair has helped much though...

I'm not sure its that many...you obviously, me, Dowiefan, Rob who comes on here from time to time used to be a Unitt fanatic, I think Laura is on here but thats about it...Titchy made a brief appearance here then left she also used to be a Unitt fanatic but has drifted away from forums altogether...I suppose things change and people move on.  I've been going on to the Unitt site and copying a lot of the 'Diary entries' and other stuff before they all go.  Pity the  picture gallery isn't excessable theres a lot on there I would have like to have got, oh well....

Oh I didn't see that....Certainly taking the site down pretty sharpish that all the Unitt threads away already, its just the Woody stuff thats left...strange why go to all the effort instead of trashing the whole thing in a oner when its set to go...Spare a thought forthe sites newest member jamesmilne1983 who joined at the start of Sept just in time for it finishing, ha...
