Edited out?

The 'new' TB Forum is very strict indeed.

There's not really, but I'd rather the posts be of a quality that would encourage, rather than discourage, serious performance boaters to return to Boatmad, they are after all, our core business.

It will be great that posts will only be serious from now on.

I think you're doing the right thing.


Good for you.

Perhaps a rename of this Forum is overdue so people will sense the new emphasis.

No one said anything about 'serious', humour, and fooling around are good for forum moral, but pictures of fairies and other such 'utter bollix' will simply make any new comers to the site think 'what a load of rubbish', and they'd be right.

Is that a direct criticism of Willowkis?

No, It's a direct criticism of some of the posts posted by Willowkis and yourself.

Willowkis is into computer graphics. Her fairy graphics are 'girly' in the same way as , say, The Cannonball Run stuff may be more male-orientated (your avatar for e.g. )

Well I would imagine there are plenty of forums for 'computer generated virtual reality fairies' out there, but they don't really fit into performance powerboating as I see it.

Well, from personal experience , on a recent trip on a powerboat Fi and I had two mascots. One was a leprechaun and one was a fairy.

OK such images are not very macho (like the racehorses we saw on the Brighton Boat or the Cigarette logo or Apache or even the image of a monster (Leviathan) but they mean something to some of us.

Well I honestly didn't think JF and TD would censor/edit anything never mind two nonsense threads on the nonsense forum. The end of the world must be nigh

I wouldn´t want to be connected nor related to the animal "Uttern" but suits TD well indeed.
