No no no no people will enter the comps and then contribute to the forum!
Hotchip180's contributions since his arrival have been a breath of fresh air on here.

Anyone other than current leader, Sally would be a good winner.

What was / is “the rule”?
Only lasted a couple of comps last year, there was a minimum post requirement.

Was seemingly scrapped after ONE lurker publicly complained.
No, No, No! Removing the rule will encourage them to post in other threads!

Just look at our current leader. And how the current World Champs threads both BDO and PDC have given these darts fans the opportunity to contribute that they've all grabbed with both hands.

Oh, wait......

If you concentrated more on your entry and less on trying to reduce the field of competition you might not need to moan so much ;-)

Erm... reducing the field DOES increase my chances of winning.

Genuine question - what happens if this one post fly-by-night wins, is then uncontactable and never posts again.

Will you then accept that there are serial freeloaders who bring NOTHING to the forum but are happy to take the prizes that perhaps should he going to those who actually make contributions?

And those are the reasons I want him to win, as it may get the powers that be to reconsider.

They won't. It only took one lurker to cry to get it removed.

We know who they are. Always listed in the results tables, never on the forum. Absolutely no shame in them.

Because he doesn't post. Same for all the lurkers, he's just a great case in point.

Why have posts been moved? Surely it warrants discussion on the main board and not tucked away in the Rambling thread?
