Delighted this sponsorship has ended. Don't think it was good for blonde.

Can someone pm me with some info as I know 2 people with poker related companies that might be interested and would not mind any negative feedback on their offerings.

Thanks Mr Cos,

Have asked Richard to reply to you.

Hope you are keeping out of trouble, wearing a vest, not messing with girls & stuff. 

According to Facebook Mr Pap has become a proud father of a beautiful baby girl yesterday or today Smiley

Many congrats to him.

Really?

Good Lord.

Congrats Cos.

Just found out about this. Shame from Blondes point of view but hopefully it is good news for Tighty. For a lot of us who just sort of lost interest in the forum due to a lot of info about DTD which just didn’t seem relevant to us it will likely mean that some people post on the forum a bit more. Will probably start looking back at this site now to see what gets posted and will hopefully start posting again.

throughout there has been masses of non DTD stuff on the forum. Still is. For example you like Dartsand i see you talking about it a lot on social media. At any stage in the last five years you could have looked into a busy Darts thread but chose not to. Thats nothing to do with DTD

Just because the darts thread is nothing to do with poker doesn't mean it wasn't part of the DTD dictated Blonde Poker forum.

Some people who didn't like the way the forum was shaped following the DTD takeover chose not to post on any of the other threads. If it wasn't for a few very good friends I've made on the forum I'd have cleared off myself at one point because of a DTD related matter.

I'm sure this break up is bad for Blonde financially but if it had continued there would have been a steady decline until eventually it just died a death.

Hopefully a new sponsor can be found but if not then maybe we can pull together as a forum to fund it ourselves. Be interesting to know how much money is actually required to run the forum, I tried asking earlier in this thread but got pretty useless responses.

Can anyone tell me about the blonde censorship of swearwords that I recently accidentally discovered and when it was introduced.

If it was a DTD mandate would it now be possible to reverse it as it seems over-sensitive(it ****ed out c n u t), unnecessary and overly dictatorial.

Hi Ralph,

There has been no software change to censorship of profantites, before, during or after DTD's tenure.

I am aware that a word you typed earlier this week was inexplicably censored, but I have no idea why. It was certainly nothing to do with DTD.

I wasn't aware of it, hasn't been formally put in place and nothing to do with DTD. As it happens, I quite like it.

Hi Matthew,

I'll try & give you a proper reply tomorrow. I've been a bit waylaid recently.

As an interesting curiosity - & I'm not trying to make a point for or against anyone or anything - the end of the DTD deal was announced on November 20th. The December post count was the highest for 4 months, rebounding some 30% from what was, admittedly, a very low point.

Forums generally are on the way down and have been for a while, I’ve been the member of many over the years and they have all become quieter over time. Don’t 100% know why, but I suspect FB groups carry some guilt at least, also specifically for this forum, poker is probably past its hay day for the casual player as it’s not as fun as it once was and harder to win for us lot that don’t take it too seriously....more interesting pastimes around these days....

Personally, this year i have played the least poker for the last 10/15 years,( due to restarting old Hobby) but used/read the forum prob more than before.
Hope you can secure a sponser would hate to see it die, some really great threads/people on here.

censored word has dated back to the early days of Mods on blonde
