...I just had to do it! (There was only one forum left!) ;-)

I was waiting for coins to drop out of the bottom of my screen...

That's not fair! Us three have six wheels to spin...

...if you really must know it's so Andrew, Dave and I can talk about you all without you knowing....tee hee...

...seriously, it was of great use during the spam bombardment at the end of last year and the beginning of this. This additional forum did help eradicate the problem, well, at least for the time being...

Has something been edited out of this thread? As it stands, it doesn't seem to make sense - at least to me, anyway.

... or maybe I'm just missing something - wouldn't be the first time!

Nah, you've not missed anything Dave, nothing worthwhile anyway, it's just that, by pure coincidence, I had the last post in each of the first 4 forums (I guess things are quiet on the NBTV front at the moment), and I just HAD to add something to this forum to complete the set - if you played the slot machines at all (and I hope you don't!) you would know that lining up 5 of a kind generally results in a jackpot with (in my day) coins falling into the tray below the reels - hence my allusion to a jackpot.

Just a poor attempt at a little humour - but, as you can see by the title of the thread, I did apologise in advance ;-)

Steve, are you sure that the 6th "secret" forum isn't actually a repository for more of this kind of NBTV material?

Sorry to get your hopes up, but it's actually quite boring, just items mainly relating to the spam blitz of last year and other forum management items. e.g. the "Culling Members" item of Andrew...which was a result of said spam blitz, we had a quick discussion between us if it should go ahead, which it did.....and just alerting each other if a new member looks suspicious...things of that nature.

Behind the scenes we do keep a close eye on what's going on...but as you can see the last posting was nearly a month ago...so apart from the odd thing it's generally very quiet in there. It's nothing unusual, most forums have a similar arrangement where mods and admin can keep in contact and provides a record of what was decided which might be lost if otherwise conducted by e-mail or PMs.

Thank you for the explanation, Gary. I hadn't made the association with slot machines (or "one-armed bandits") - not being into such things.
