Hi guys

I've begun moving our conversations to 606 - starting with a thread about the weekend predictions and one about the cup finals.

You can add your own threads and - finally - tag your own conversations as Downs League.

All you need to do is go to www.bbc.co.uk/606

To start a conversation hit 'Create 606'

Select the type of content you're making (article, match report etc)

Select the sport as football

Next, ignore choose team and select the 'Choose competition' drop down. Go all the way to the bottom, hit 'Other'

In the next box that appears type Downs League

Give the article a headline and type in the post

Hit preview, then submit if you're happy ...

And there you go! All sorted.

You'll find the conversations here:

www.bbc.co.uk/dna/60...

We're looking at fancy ways to add it to the Downs League homepage - hopefully that'll be sorted soon.

Give me a shout here or via bristol@bbc.co.uk if you have any problems.

I should also point out all of your current logins on this messageboard will work over on 606 - so no need to sign up again.

Rumour has it that these boards are closing down Fasty. Never been on the 606 boards but from what I gather from bits I've read about them some of the comments on them make the conversations you and Dan have look like Booker prize winning literature;)

Hiya Fasttopedo - check out the posts above for why we're going to 606. Obviously we'd like your participation over on the new area. I'm hoping we'll make the route in to the site a bit easier in the coming weeks - watch this space!

Afternoon Bristol Host,

As you are making preparations for the shut down of these boards can you shed any light on why they are going?

Thanks

Was I writing in Hebrew or something? No answer I see <erm> I take it we won't be made welcome or tolerated as the football threads were on here!

Should be interesting Board though - the Bristol Host and Fasty ;-)

Astro, have you been to look at it. I'm not surprised the footy fans never liked it. it is so slow and cumbersome to use. Cannot converse as such as each posting is hidden in its own box. :(

Won't try hi-jacking it I don't think. <laugh>

I've used 606 for years, both in its present form and in its prevous incarnation.

Although it's mainly used for talking about the professional scene it can cater for all facets of football.

It's like many boards on the web - fiddly to begin with but once you become used to it it's easy.

Guys - one more notice on moving to 606 - we're going to STOP tagging Downs League threads on this board from Friday, 14 March ...

Like DonnellyYates says - 606 is very easy to use and a few of you have started posting over there which is great. If you haven't yet, we've added some instruction on how to use the new board here:

www.bbc.co.uk/bristo...

You'll find the new home here:

Well fasty, it does require a modicum of inteligence, but the others seem to manage.
Seems you have found your level and given up ..<laugh>
