We have a new leader.
In the comp not the poll.
Are you going to tell us who?

Hopefully Joey. :grin:

I hope that tone does not suggest you are going to ignore the democratic vote of the members.
And don't pretend for a second that you don't think Paddy used up every multiple in his armoury.

I think there should be a minimum but not anything high

It’s just common decency, anyone can fudge 20 or so posts to say hi or talk darts before they enter a competition

It’s why I liked the worlds one, if your paying money you tend to have to have an interest in the forum

Which reminds me we should do a big uk open comp for money, guess every game

Yes - 25
No - 18

A commanding lead for common sense, despite the freeloaders turning up en masse to vote for continued scrounging.

Given it wasn’t a binary choice then ‘No’ is clearly winning with most votes at 18 but don’t let democracy get in the way eh!

Still 25-18 for yes.

We'll decide the number of posts needed democratically later. Or we could attempt a weighted average of the "yes" votes.

Lovely stuff.

Oh dear.

There are four choices - you can’t mix three of them to get a majority, there.

The results are in:

No - 18
Yes 50 - 16
Yes 20 - 6
Yes another - 4

The winner is No with 18 votes.

I'll lock the thread as the forum has spoken and have agreed with the moderating team in voting for no restrictions. Thanks to all those that voted.
