No I hadn't.

Freebie = "something that is free (usually provided as part of a promotional scheme); "the road map was a freebie""

Competition = "contest: an occasion on which a winner is selected from among two or more contestants "

not the same thing.

I think that statement comes across as like someone explaining to a child, the differences are pretty dam obvious & didnt need explaining to anyone on this forum :shock: :?

At the end of the day, the subject was already in hand & has been for some time, admin was kind enough to create a poll on it... & the last word is ultimately admin's, when ready...

It would also mean quite a considerable workload to take on in spare time to sort out all these posts too if the need arose... so wait & see...

mhuk - Please add your voice to that poll as it's there for the exact request you had!

By the look of the poll we'll be separating into two sections though as it seems to be what most people want. There'll be a couple changes happening in the next few days like that.

Thinks LoneCrusader is having too many late nights :lol:

Maybe mhuk was just trying to get over the point straight from the dictionary, but typed words don't have the "tone" so are a little misinterpreted.

At first glance it is rather "classroom like". So I see how it made you lose your cool a little there.

Anyway, I just heard a bell ringing :? :shock: Breaktime over already

I think we all need to be patient, as you say "when ready" the forum will be sorted in good time.

Admin. is also busy trying to sort out the December promotion, along with the season to be jolly, he's probably wearing a red suit + a white beard. So there'll be a nice pressie to aim for if we're all good

Guess that rules me out

:lol:

It wasn't meant to be patronising or rude... to me the word Freebie doesn't "enter a competition" =
