What's buzzing in the world of cricket....

1. DFM, AC. BN, but so few posts from that gender neutral poster of late.
2. I would have to say Bhavesh/Dr Cricket has set the pace for this one this year.
3. Either Ashes Brisbane, Ashes Perth or Ashes Adelaide.
4.
5.
6. Sussex and AC. Two contrasting characters - one shines like a beacon and one hides it under a bushel.
7. Our two India supporters, Adi and Bhavesh
8. Stats may lie, but not in this case - AC.
9. I will have to give this to Durham, purely for the large number of fantasy leagues he runs - and just how amazingly quick he gets the scores up. (it's almost as if he enjoys the interaction with technology)
10. Many. Sussex for his wide and varied knowledge as well as weird travels; Arthur for the unique way he has for looking at things; Durham for how so much of his character/life comes out on the forum; Budget as a character study. Others too.
11. I would really like to wander into a pub (it would have to be in England, and it would have to be in the North) and find a large group of regulars to this forum all together. It would be a late night....
To name up a few though: AC, Durham and Budget - I have often thought Budget and I are similar in a lot of ways.

12. To complete the fawning hero worship, Arthur. By a fair margin.

Thanks, one and all. Another good year.
Maybe




I think I won something, sometime

Happy new year all.

Given that I have received so few responses I am happy to give it a little longer to see if we get more through.

Shall we say the 14th?

5 is pretty pathetic really.

I don't really monitor the number of posts on this forum, something that Aidan used to take an interest in, but I'm guessing the numbers are steadily declining.

Avatars not working, posters not posting, is this forum's days numbered? Just saying!

I hope it's not the writing on the wall....I agree that the avatars and smilies need to come back,...just looks dull without them....posts are defintiely declining, but that could be for any number of reasons...for example, i used to be up at 30 posts a day, but then i went travelling for ayear, and since ive been back (about a year or so), i haven;t had the time to keep posting, but i've taken on extra FL'S to keep them going...people stop posting for multiple reason, i wanted to vote on this, but sadly never got round to it :( hopefully it's just a lull and that things will pick up again soon

The forum features are not good imo. Cannot post pictures properly, the smilies are limited and not working. Even the limit for attachment to be uploaded is not proper. No compatibility with Tapatalk. The forum platforms nowadys have changed with a lot of excellent features.
