Throughout the various seasons, PON has made significant progress. Despite the turmoil both on and off the pitch, this has been a pleasant place to visit and discuss Notts. The content produced is also of high quality. I appreciate that it’s a substantial undertaking for the team.

Being a part of the Pride of Nottingham has boosted my confidence. There are so many members whose views on Notts matters I eagerly await. It certainly fosters a sense of community. When I joined as a young teenager, I mostly kept to myself. However, being invited to moderate was one of my proudest moments here.

I am very proud to be part of the PON community of Notts County supporters.

Before I joined, I checked out the site for a while before joining and I was so impressed by the content such as the articles & threads plus the very high calibre contribution from the members.

The PON site is growing from strength the strength with a great team that look after it & the members that contribute to its content. Long may it continue.

i have been here since 2012, i was not much into football as a youngster but i felt at home at notts. those free tickets that notts would give schools paid off, joining pon was the best decision i have made. i have seen members come and go, but the community is great. @super_ram, @Piethagoram, @Fan of Big Tone are three of my favourite members.

also credit to @Chris who does so much, he makes pon shine.

like @Joshua, i have grown and i find people accept me which i have found difficult over the years with being autistic.

I’ve been here since 29th December 2012, which was a bad year for me it’s the year my world fell apart when my son took his own life, I was in a bad place, it might sound silly but PoN helped by acting as a distraction from some of the bad things going on. I had tried other Notts forums but non matched the friendliness of PoN.

I was a regular poster for a few years and saw many members come and go, amongst them some good friends, I took some time out myself for a few years before returning like the prodigal son a while ago. 😂

@Chris has done an amazing job along with members of the team to make this place not only very friendly but a really amazing community to read and talk about Notts County, football and life in general.

There’s only one downside and that’s the fact that we have to put up with @super_ram but I suppose nothings perfect. Only joking mate you know I love you.

Oh my, things are heating up now! Forget about Usyk vs Tyson. It’s Fan of Big Tone taking on Super Ram. Come on, Super! Don’t let this slide. 😂

My money’s on @super_ram! Apologies, @Fan of Big Tone. I know you’re fond of your jogging and exercise, but I’ve heard from an unnamed source that Super has strength and a bit of a mean streak.

To tell the truth, I find great pleasure in contributing to PON. Being a writer can sometimes be exhausting, but this is my outlet. I genuinely feel at home here.
