    I am happy that my posts in those threads are representative of my views. Laughing at Athers getting run out on 99 being a particular highlight.

    My only disappointment is that there is no mention of Mike Garnham in any of my posts.

    As an aside - what will you do with posts that consist only of smilies or photographs not taken by the poster in question?

    There is a selection of 25 threads to choose from where Mike Garnham gets a mention. May I suggest one of these gets added to the list?

    As a coincidence, I appear to have posted in every one of those threads. How bizarre.

    Posts that consist solely of smiles have been edited out along with off-topic posts that don't specifically relate to the thread topic. A lot of work has been done on this both by us and by the publishers as there is a strict 75,000 word limit on the book.

    I appear to have contributed 2 posts out of approx. 10,000. Do I get 0.02% of the Royalties? Of course, I expect this without having contributed anything towards the costs.

    The aim is April next year, but this is still up in the air and not 100% finalised.

    Should definitely include a thread related to other part of cricket - e.g the politics, history, race, etc. Some good discussion in those threads, and really shows the breadth of topics. Obviously have to pick one that didn't end in a flamewar.

    The threads have already been selected and edited etc; they're not looking for more thread suggestions.

    It's a really neat idea and all but I'm just wondering, since this is, after all, a book involving majority of us, why wasn't the wider forum input taken regarding the choices of threads?

    It would have made a great thread even if none of our opinions were taken seriously. If nothing else at least it, would be full of nostalgia for the veterans, we'd get laughs from reading some of each other's older, misinformed selves, and the newer guys like me (in relative terms) would get to see some of the quality posts made in the past. Pity imo, feel this could have been more of a community effort.

    That's a fair enough point, and I can see where you're coming from. Certainly, if future books were done if this one proves successful, we will definitely consider going down this route. The reception from the publishers and from book distributors has been extremely positive to date.

    A team of people was put together to help choose and edit the threads so it hasn't been a one or two person effort. The publishers also initially wanted us to keep this under wraps until later in the project, and of course with any book, it isn't until later in the project when you're sure it will "see print".

    Personally, I see this as a community effort regardless because it's hundreds of individual people's thoughts and opinions brought together into print. The book will acknowledge the CW community as a whole up front also.
