What kind of fuckery is this?

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.



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.



The streets of Baghdad were really quiet but when they pulled down that statue of Saddam it suddenly got busy cos everyone bowled out of hiding and started bashing it with their flip flops.

Going on me holidays so looked into this thinking Dunning-Kruger was a cool brand of flip flops.

What a waste of time! Turns out it's some geeky philosophy about how people with no sense of humour think they're the funniest guy in the room?!?

It would be a shame if you didn't read it all though. It's very funny and explains perfectly how you came to be such an expert on such a wide range of subjects. Have a great holiday!

Hey Blonde, you know that your sponsorship with DTD is over? Why is the whole homepage still covered in DTD sponsorship and articles? All old news and reviews, all old DTD stuff. Gets my goat a bit when enterprises say they're struggling, less poker players, forum dying and don't control what's controllable. Get some fresh stuff up there and purge history. Just trying to help like.

I’d suggest they’re actively looking for a new sponsor, but in the meantime have an informal agreement to leave up as they don’t mind the association to a relatively big brand name in the poker world.

Mate, have you reached out to the forum for assistance before concluding that no one else will support? I thought mods donated their time gratis for the benefit of the forum so why is such a notion inconceivable? You might get a bunch of members who are happy to submit articles and material so all you need to do is simply upload them. Infinitely better than old news from years gone by with free advertising for a sponsor who dropped you.

There remains a whole host of coolness within. We have Best in the Business where forum users have access to golden info from a world name, would pleno not be willing to contribute advertising for his stable and a link to his diary? There's Tips for Tikay, Racing Thread & Betting Emporium, all +EV betting resources, really nobody would contribute? Tikay Diary and new Vegas Staking Adventure, the dormant Staking Forum. Reaching out to all the casinos and cardrooms out there to take a section to promote their latest tournaments/photos?

I've read lots of times that members would donate money to keep the forum going so why not time and content? It needs fresh impetus to build momentum. Don't take it personally as I'm not having a dig at you but if the people responsible for Blonde are shrugging shoulders saying no time, no resources so we'll do nothing there is zero chance of attracting a new sponsor and zero hope for a future.

Incidentally, nobody paid me to contribute this slick commercial advice, I have a full time job and did it all in my own time for free.

most of all what we need is a webmaster Tighty has done his best but none of the mod team have the skills and blonde doesn't have the funds to pay for one. Since bongo left wee have had several members have a look but no one able to take on the task of fixing the faults gratis. i am sure if someone with the skills came along then we can easy get things rolling both on and off the forum.

I would be happy to help with this from a finding sponsorship for the Blonde Site.

I have a few contacts from the Aspires, Grosvenor and Genting casinos who are always looking at ways to improve the number of poker players coming to there venues.

There isn't really a UK poker hub which displays local tournaments and perhaps runs promotions for those tournaments. 

I know there is a App for it... Cant remember the name. But that doesn't run promotions or able users to comment, arrange meet ups... ect, ect.

I'd be happy to donate some of my free time to this.

Powers to be- Just let me know.
