  • Wizzo: Its not a problem Cal, its better than waiting for your pictures to be approved.

  • Calman: Hi Wizzo ... I am trying to understand the system, not change it, so appologise if my attempts to add to the gallery are causing any unessesary stress!
    April 09, 2018, 05:56:12 AM
  • Wizzo: To be honest its a very long time since we had any issues with members photos. I have changed the permissions so that images no longer need admin approval
    April 08, 2018, 03:14:05 PM
  • Calman: Thanks for the info and approval on my 1st photo Wizzo, really appreciate it.  So, who is the best member to contact for photo approval (as I am aware that you mostly appear online over the weekend).

  • Scott: When I do my GG picks, I get a warning that the website is not secure up on the browser address...using Safari.  Anyone else get anything like that?

  • Wizzo: Yes the gallery does not inform the admin when a new picture is posted so we either have to check everyday or its just easier when you post a picture to let one of us know. Yours has been approved.
    April 07, 2018, 06:56:03 PM
  • Calman: Can anyone shed light on why an image I uploaded to the gallery 24+ hours ago is still pending approval? ... thank you.

  • Calman: Took a HUGE gamble with my Bahrain Race predications, so let's see how crazy a race it may be!
    April 02, 2018, 11:26:21 PM
  • Calman: Lovely, will have to think about some predictions for Bahrain in the next few days!!
    March 29, 2018, 01:02:51 AM
  • Wizzo: Grid Game countdown all working again. Don't forget your predictions!
    March 28, 2018, 12:11:49 PM
  • Scott: Bahrain countdown appears to be pooched
    March 26, 2018, 06:03:26 PM
  • Wizzo: The 2018 Grid Game is now ready to play. Place your predictions for the first race now!  :yahoo:

  • Scott: I haven't abandoned GPW, just need to shift focus a bit during the off-season.
    January 27, 2018, 08:17:01 PM
  • Scott: Nice score getting an Amazon ad up there, Wizzo!   :good:
    January 03, 2018, 05:39:05 PM
  • Scott: Fraid I won't be around for the season final...we have groups at the hotel lunch and dinner and we are moving Monday am, so barely a minute to sit down...perhaps I can pop in for a minute or two at some point.

  • Wizzo: Hi Greg, you're better off telling us about your concept in a written post on the forum for all to see. I'm sure you'll get a few opinions.
    November 07, 2017, 05:37:04 PM
  • Greg_82: Hello, anyone online to discuss?
    November 06, 2017, 05:51:35 PM
  • Greg_82: the best would be to go on skype to discuss the concept, would that be possible with some of you guys?
    November 06, 2017, 12:31:49 PM
  • Greg_82: I'm new and I would like to know if some of you would have some time to spend with me because I'm launching a new concept about F1 and I would like to have your idea

  •   And really...we are talking about one point.  Nobody is suggesting making it retroactive, so really a simple fix.


    Actually it's two points Scott, but whose counting.  ;) :tease:

    By the by, no one actually picked the real pole sitter in the race last Sunday - who also happened to be the fastest in Q3 as well as the driver starting on pole - so isn't all this rule re-writing a tad premature?   :confused:

  • Pole points should be awarded for whoever starts on pole not who is fastest ion Q3.  The grid game rules make sense because consider what happens if the fastest driver in Q3 is disqualified for some reason, such as the Michael Schumacher parking stunt at Monaco in 2006.  Such a breach of the rules should result in that prediction not being valid for pole.  It's the same for all these gearbox and engine penalties.  The penalties are the problem, not the grid game rules.

    I suppose I thought our game could adapt quite a bit quicker than the FIA, and add a dose of common sense for other if's, and's or but's.
