I am so sorry to read this. Was never much of a poster, but I have read the site daily for over a decade now, ... . Thank you very much.
Ditto from me. Thank you Drew for all you have done.

Can anyone out there who regularly posts elsewhere suggest the best place for those of us not in the know to aim for? Thanks.

Echo the sentiments of the above. I only started posting in last few weeks, but have been reading daily for years. Another relocation to convene, or a way of keeping this going would be great.

Hey Drew, I’m really sorry to hear this. You have done a brilliant job of hosting this forum, and the QPR universe will be a poorer place when it is gone.


I can only wish you all the best, and send my heart felt thanks.

Sad news. This place, and the old dotorg, and the old, old .org, has been my main go to for well over 20 years.

Thank you Drew. I know you have put a lot of yourself into this site for years, and through this site you gave me the chance to go to a sponsors do many moons ago.

The internet will be worse off for not having the dotorg to visit every day.

Drew, I really wanted to echo the sentiments of the other posters. Having checked out other boards and thinking to myself "What an absolute cluster pribbling idle-headed giglet. Surely Rangers fans aren't like this" - it was an absolute pleasure to stumble across Dotorg and see all the characters that reside here. Thanks so much for providing and maintaining this forum.

Cheers to the lot of you for the insight, laughs, debates etc.

New to this site, and as an oldie fairly new to the internet. I would imagine it's very difficult to run and maintain something like this so, a big thank you to Drew who alas I don't know, and a big thank you from me in my short time on this site.

As a long time user of this and the old org, it's a sad day. Not been posting regularly myself for the last few years, but lurked in the background still.

It's been a fantastic community, have met some really decent and lovely people through here - I will greatly miss it.

Thanks Drew for all you've done on here.

Being an older overseas supporter, dot.org has been my QPR meet up place for many a year now. I always felt that dot.org attracted a more cultured kind of supporter and I will sorely miss this place, especially on match days.
Thank you very much Drew for all the work you have put in to this place and I hope you will be well in the future.

I’ve just seen this. Wishing you all the best and heartfelt thanks.

This message board is neck and neck with where I get my news as the page on the internet I’ve visited most in my life over the last 20 years or more!

Visiting here for just backs, transfer rumours, opinions, debates and club gossip has been as much a part of my years as a rangers fan as anything.

Wow DG I am absolutely gutted to read this, for well over twenty years I have looked daily on the dot.org for my fill of everything QPR. I have looked at other sites and not liked the the layouts etc. A life changing moment for many of us, by habit we shall be looking for the .org long after it has gone!

However your personal situation is of course of far more importance and I wish you very good luck in quickly resolving your issues mate. Thank you.

So sad to see this place is going. Was a member from back in the 90's and spent far too many hours/weeks/months of my life on here reading every post and replying/arguing with various people over the years. Haven't posted much in the last few years been using Loft for words a lot more but gutted to see this is going. Hope Drew is Ok, this board has been a massive part of my QPR supporting life and will miss it when its gone

Wow that is indeed the end of an era; I was watching Ray Wilkins and Michael Meaker at Loftus Road about the time I started reading either this site or its predecessor.

Your work over the years is much appreciated Drew.
