    Where would you put something like this? There is only one venue and thats open discussion.

    The open discussion section was for threads that didn't fit the boat design criteria and for chat threads. I dont think its either sensible or very considerate to chat on every thread started here if they are not intended as general chat threads. I'm not sure what the 'Dungeon' is but you can start any number of idle chat threads for sociable banter without filling someone elses thread which ultimately just destroys it. Some of the more 'inane' posts just amount to graffiti style 'tagging' . However since we are a community I know there will be other opinions too. But is it really hard to consider whether the thread is for chat or serves a more useful function to the forum as a whole?

    Frosty how about a decent picture of you on here ? Then we could get this thread back onto its original track.

    It was really good to see pictures of the people that have contributed their photos so far, but lets encourage more people to contribute rather than sinking it in a sea of drivel.
    Please

    MikeJohns, OK here is what you do, in the bar at the top of the page is a row of buttons "Boat Design Forums | Boat Design Directory | Boat Design Gallery | Boat Design Book Store | Thanks to Our Site Sponsors | Sitemap" click on the first one, then you will see a list of 10 main forums and some of the sub-forums, select your favourite one - one that equates with your interests, say, for example, Powerboats, so click on it and enter that then create a thread in there called "Powerboat Faces to Names", then post your own photo and a brief bio or whatever, inviting others to similarly post if this is their interest - - All too easy...

    If a thread is not "kept alive" it becomes buried and difficult to find. I had to go back quite a bit to find and revive this only after about 40 days....:D:D

    Mike with al due respect, your not often seen down here in the dungeon -normally too serious for that! OK that's your perogative, there's plenty of forums and things upstairs where you can mix with your own kin to your hearts content! some do! some stay there, but few slide into anothers world and whinge about his world -you come into my kitchen, you sit by my fire, you drink my coffee the way I make it! Your more than welcome anytime, just please don't t4ell us how to suck eggs, down here we sucks 'em out way! In your world you sucks em your way! Jeff knows this and accepts it so why don't you!

    by al means come down anytime it's great to see you, but play nice?

    thankee' kindly sorr!

    Hi Mike, never mind these hooligans :D

    We just keep the thread going to get a picture... oh wait a MINUTE !!!! A DECENT picture of Frosty.

    Well now you see, I have to really go dig to find a decent picture of me. Have a better chance of the ex have one :rolleyes:

    He he Frosty... did you mention one you're stripping on stage with the gals ? Now that would make a pretty decent picture I dare say old chap what.
