Is it me, or is BoTM a very divisive activity - it almost destroyed VRC and every time is poke my head in here to see what's up, there are mean-spirited jabs being taken in BoTM...
Or it could just be gm123456789...
BoTM COULD be so much more, without all the bellyaching and bicker (he said, ironically adding to the bickering)
oh well. as you were.
Of course any form of Competition has the innate ability to be devisive - but BoTM was and is 'competition' with a small 'c'. The true value of the exercise is to encourage all folk to show their bikes as they would have us see them - and this has been proven to be successful for many years.
The fact that VRC tried and failed could indicate an lack of understanding of the subtlty that has been maintained here - that 'winning' ain't the thing - whatever, that episode is history.
You say every time you 'poke your head in here' there is 'mean spirited jabs' at BoTM - I'm here all the time and I just don't see that at all. Having said that - citing the 'two picture rule' to a newbie is harsh... The two picture thing matters not a damn as they get trimmed down to one for the poll anyways.
Am very interested on how you think a BoTM could be so much more though...?
