Maybe rebrand as poker and sports forum? Lot of the traffic comes from lounge/diary/sports rather than poker specific. Would probably increase traffic, easier to get advertising revenue that way too is imagine.

Good idea, especially as there is a bit of wonga being thrown about at the moment with all that Daily Fantasy Sports stuff.

Why not just "Blonde forum"?

Thread for Blonde poker
Thread for Blonde sports
Thread for Blonde blogs (the diary thread)....

The poker side of it was hugely damaged with the DTD sponsorship as it was too specific to DTD (understandably) and I'm afraid it's never going to get back to where it once was.

Maybe now that other tours can be talked about we could try to encourage some of the old members back. It'll be an uphill struggle but if they know that they're allowed to speak openly without having posts deleted or ban sticks waved at them they might make the odd guest appearance.

Out of interest how much does it cost for the forum to operate without moderation? Absolute minimum running costs so just the server costs.

I would imagine we could have a whip round to keep things going for a while. I'd be happy chipping in as I'm sure would many others.

Perhaps this would be a good opportunity for a staking company to sponsor as it should have the right audience.

What about Sky if there isn't a conflict of interest for you Tikay.

Or BITB. Both would seem ideal sponsors.

Good luck Tighty

I would also be prepared to chip in if necessary. First place to start would be live updates, they are the one thing that I and I’m sure others really miss. I never really understood why DTD didn’t really embrace the blonde updates, I definitely felt more compelled to play live tournaments after I followed them. It’s probably the main reason why I haven’t been to DTD for a year.

Think this is kinda good news. Haven't really seen the forum explode forwards under the sponsorship.
