OMG I thought this was all a convivial fraternal thing. We'll be required to take drugs tests next.

Just sorting out my TUE.

Personally i think any number of entrants is fine. Of course there could be more and maybe on another time of the year there would be, for what ever reason.

I also think it is not very helpful for the forum when a mod openly states that the BotM is a joke and we shouldnt have it, and thinks that the few should speak for the majority!? lets be postitve :)

I see your concern. The BOTM is a prestigious title and current participants and past winners can rely on that the mods do their utmost its stays like that and perhaps it is not something to address in the forum.

It'd be nice if BOTM was promoted and shared beyond these 4 walls. Actually it'd be nice if they were promoted on the front page...

Look at the sheer quality of the four entries this month - congrats to all. Never mind 1 or 2 votes, I could've used four 8) :lol:

Like the idea of 1 + secondary 1/2 vote or points equivalent system. Dissapointing there wasnt an early FAT, as they used 531 tubing. Two stood out for me and one in particular.
