    Interesting idea and I wish you the best of luck with it. Not sure about the threads chosen but I'm sure there are good reasons for their selection. I can't imagine I'd be thrilled with a gift that has TEC and Richard going at it for pages when I wouldn't even spare the time to read it for free but then each to their own.

    Aside from the, IMHO, questionable choice of content this is an impressive project to bring to fruition.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits

    If I'm not mistaken, most of the dual-poster arguments have been massively cropped and cut.

    Did the book have any dedications in it?

    If pictures were posted in one of the threads, did these make it to the book?

    How can I put people on ignore in the Written Word?

    EDIT: And thanks for the pageys, Freddo. Very interesting. The third example you've shown, did Richard post that picture of Warne, or was his post 'empty'?

    Hmm. Content issues aside, it looks good and the illustration is cool.

    On a separate note, does anyone know what on earth is ANDMARK is talking about the first example page?

    One thing I do like is that it looks like typing mistakes such as "were none exactly bad" from the second page have been kept in which gives it more of the forum feel and a nod to its roots.

    1. I did want to include a dedication to each of my ex-wives but it would have meant excluding two chapters so no

    2.No - the only pictures are John Ireland's drawings which pop up at appropriate places throughout the text - at least I hope they are appropriate!

    3. By not purchasing? But that isn't recommended

    This was a deliberate decision, although idleness would probably have made it the default position anyway

    I was thinking about this the other day. While its supposed to be a light hearted project, I don't think it'd be too sentimental to add something about Craigos and Fardin in the foreword.

    I also do hope that the book isn't full of quotes from certain members who in the past have been guilty of inserting their opinions on every topic regardless of relevance.
    RIP Craigos
