Manchester United is one of the most iconic football clubs an predictably because of its large fan base, its sprung up many unofficial fan forums. manutdtalk.com is free fan forum for discussing all things united. Design wise, the website is nice to look at as it use XenForo, webforum design. Its not over crowded with sub forums, and it does have front page. It does have user avatars. The main forum is not over crowded and every forum constructed nicely but, and mostly level headed discussion form its regular users. But it only has some 1500 registered users, an probably only less than 100 ever active user.
Because this forum run by corrupt moderators, because the main admin/site owner is never around. Which undermine the credibility of the forum. How this forum is moderated is very inconsistent, so its impossible for regular users to know where they have the moderators. IF they make any decision its mostly based on arbitrarily decision not on common sense. Most often they don´t do anything about offensive post by long terms users, while new user seems to get warnings and ban with out any proper and valid reason. So it alienates new members form wanting to stick around.
The rumour has it that they have private moderation forum to analize decision making, but no regular users can see this forum. So this is opacity is probably the major reason why moderators on this forum are as corrupt it is indeed. Thus the number of members has not increased much despite 7 years in existence.
Score: 2 stars, I wouldn't recommend it, despite its nice design.
