    Your website needs you...

    Nae photie of Jamie standing in a cap, moustache and pointing a finger at you all...so you've all been spared already.

    Okay, here's cutting to the chase.

    Many were disappointed to hear that Just Back would not be back and expressed their gratitude and sadness in equal measure. Mark is rightly getting his life back after delivering a thankless tasks for the majority of the last few seasons and, having stood in for him on many an occasion, I know a bit more than most about the toll it takes. The odd person has suggested I simply take up the reins but that would not actually solve much. The many posters who suddenly emerged from viewing but not contributing to the boards to tell us how sad they were about Just Back going are part of the problem. Part, I said, before anyone gets too upset with that. We've become lax of late and the site is in danger of going down the pan at the expense of social media and contributors taking the site for granted. Recently, it has condensed down to Just Back and not much more.

    I don't know where EGB has gone but his disappearance has hammered the Cowshed and it has become the echo dome he often predicted it would become. I hope he comes back soon but nobody can force that. In terms of Hibs related stuff, I will volunteer this weekend, as a one off just now, to cover the Dingwall game. Partly because the likes of Mark and tricky (who I chatted to about this briefly yesterday) are out of the country and would really like caught up with events up the road. I had already committed to doing it before Mark hung up his typewriter.

    However, moving forward, I have a suggestion. We have 13,000 season ticket holders. Many games are on the tellybox. Most Bouncers saw the game last weekend via one of those means. So, the reality is there is nothing to stop any of you doing the home matches. We could get a volunteer for each home game without problem, indeed tricky has already offered to be one of them. So, as Delia once said under the influence of alcohol, let's be 'avin' ya?

    If we can get enough people to start contributing for home reports then maybe, just maybe, I'd be willing to consider doing a bit more on the away from home. However, that has to come from us all starting to contribute a bit more than has been happening. I know for certain the current status quo can't continue and was something that has contributed to where we find ourselves re Just Back.

    If you want the site to survive and you'd like match reports to return, then reply to this thread and we can take it from there.

    Id be willing to go on a " reserve " list of just backers, and do one if requested. Trouble is I don't go to all games due to work commitments , and don't normally know until a few days before the game.

    I think we should all do what we can to preserve the bounce. It's a great place , with lots of decent peeps on board, and would be very sad to see its demise. There is still a lot of decent posters around to make it work IMO. It's still an absoloute go to place , especially compared to .net which defies belief sometimes, very rarely do I check what's going on in there. Even more reason to save this place.

    I go to all home games, and would be happy to do at least 4 "Just Backs", say? @SKII , you could simply allocate certain games to me/others, maybe?

    As a regular poster, I've got more of a vested interest in the site surviving, and am more than happy to contribute.

    Hello, I'd be happy to try and contribute to a "Just back" also. Could be interesting to see each other style.

    I must have been delirious at the end of the Kiltwalk yesterday when I volunteered..

    would be happy to take a turn at match reports

    in general will try and post more to help keep the forum going as it's my main port of call for any Hibs news / debates and met some great folk through the bounce.

    it's a real shame to see forums like the Tartan Army message board shutting down
    until the sky turns green

    I'll be back in Edinburgh over Xmas & New Year and intend to take in 3 or 4 games over that period, so would be happy to cover one of those.

    I'd like to have a go. It could work as a shared role and I don't go to enough away games. Perhaps agree who'll do it in the run up to each game?

    This is how feel too. I'm as guilty as anyone else for not posting as much as I'd wish, for what it is worth. I love this site and the people on it though and it means a lot to me - as much as it ever has since I regsitered a few days after it began in 2002.

    They say you never miss what you've got until it's gone, I don't want to be in that situation with the Bounce, it's been a part of my life through thick and thin for so many years and I'd like to play my small part in seeing it buck the general trend as social media, whilst enjoyable, could never replace the Bounce for me.

    Thanks to all the people volunteering to contribute 'Just Back's, it's appreciated. I'd like to relay my thanks also to Mark and SKII for the great reports which keep us distant fans in good touch.

    Looking for a volunteer for tomorrow?
    I'll do the next 2 away games and Hammi on the Sheep. If folks want to identify a game that suits them, let me know and I'll draw up a calender

    My love for all things Hibs has been on the wain for probably more than 18 months and to be honest despite having a season ticket it's almost a chore. The statement last week did nothing to help.

    The Bounce is great as a concise version of dotnet and there's the tight debates!! and I love it. I'll keep my subscription going as my contribution.

    That's about the most unusual description of the Bounce I've ever witnessed!

    Completely different animals for me, Jack.

    I'll not particularly disagree but when you want to gauge the feelings of the support you'll get it in 3 posts on the Bounce or 3 pages of dotnet.

    That's not a criticism of either site.

    I wouldn't particularly disagree with that statement either. A few years ago when I used to post regularly on hibs.net I found that by the time I'd got to a subject there were already six pages of comment and everyone had said practically everything there was to say about the subject already.

    That's not a criticism either.

    The "just backs" are the first thing I look for after a game. I appreciate them so much!! With me not being able to see very well, they give me a great report on the game I have just been too.

    You might be the guy who used to sit behind us in the East years ago - I remember one game when he shouted "McCann you're $#@!e!" every time Wotherspoon got the ball. When I pointed out his error and explained McCann was out with a broken leg, he replied "Aye well he's $#@!e an aw."

    I need Just Back while I'm here in the Netherlands, and will desperately miss it if it goes, but I worry it's just a symptom of the real problem.

    And that problem is that forums just aren't the way news is spread in the modern online age. I know a lot of people here dislike social media, and that it's poor for communication, but... Perhaps a facelift for the whole Bounce is becoming necessary in order to not only retain the members we have, but bring in new ones.

    Just a thought.

    I'd love to.

    Funnily enough, I was recently sketching out a couple of concepts about how to possibly modernise aspects of the Bounce. Like @Stu and others, I suspect, the Bounce is a real lifeline for those of us that can't get to matches.

    I'd hate to lose it.

    I'd be intrigued to see what kind of ideas you might have. I totally agree with you regarding the site being a lifeline.

    I visit here every day and I don't want that to ever change. I'd go even further as I haven't had family and friends in Edinburgh or anywhere nearer than Lanarkshire in many a year. My habit previously was to go to a game on my own when back home. That all changed with the likes of the Bounce. I've made many important friends, friends that I consider to be lifetime ones and reforged links back home that made me feel close again so I feel particularly grateful and attached. May it ever be thus.

    Now that you mention it, it may well have been . . . although I'd have to agree with his judgement on that one.

    Reminds me of my favourite from a guy behind me many years ago.

    However, moving forward, I have a suggestion. We have 13,000 season ticket holders. Many games are on the tellybox. Most Bouncers saw the game last weekend via one of those means. So, the reality is there is nothing to stop any of you doing the home matches. We could get a volunteer for each home game without problem, indeed tricky has already offered to be one of them. So, as Delia once said under the influence of alcohol, let's be 'avin' ya?

    If we can get enough people to start contributing for home reports then maybe, just maybe, I'd be willing to consider doing a bit more on the away from home. However, that has to come from us all starting to contribute a bit more than has been happening. I know for certain the current status quo can't continue and was something that has contributed to where we find ourselves re Just Back.

    If you want the site to survive and you'd like match reports to return, then reply to this thread and we can take it from there.
