Welcome Back
« on: 06 July, 2017, 10:43:43 PM »
Hi all

I found out yesterday that the forum is back. Great news. Nice to see a couple of the old faces are still here. I hope others will return soon.

 I found out about the return of the forum via west ham groups I wonder how others did it?.
I think it will take a bit of time before all of the old posters find their way back unless there is some way to get the information to them.

Harry, Please see my post on June 17th 2017 under Memories and Nostalgia/Is the Newham Story Open Again? The task of contacting former members should not be too difficult if you only contact those who were "Helpful Users" and above under the old regime.

There may be problems regarding attracting old and new members. Firstly the Newham photos page is still stating that the forum is not active.

Secondly the Newham page that I used has two links. One mentions forums, http://newhamstory.com/forums  but takes you to a page that is nothing to do with the forum. The other link does not mention the forum,  www.newhamstory.com but does get you here?

It is pure luck that I found the forum up and running.

Hello Harry.
I have emailed Jenni at Newham Archives outlining the suggestions that Doug made and she was passing my email onto the IT section to sort out.
