  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Competition by LittleEmma on 1 August 2010 8:39pm
I just thought I'd note that there hasn't been a competition on MP's website since 2007... and back then the first prize was a signed copy of his latest travel book. Also the chatroom should be more appropriately retitled 'silence' or 'shhhhh' since that hasn't worked since I first visited this site. I know times are hard, and I may be revealing signs of my pedantry, but... well I wanna free T-shirt!!! ;D

Yes Emma, the chatroom is deceased. I think it was due to a mixture of cost, abuse and under use.
Competitions ? I seem to remember that the last one had a winner and runners-up who had never been heard of on the site before or since.

It wasn't underused, but it was abused by many who bothered and abused other members here. Only takes one to ruin it for everyone. And of course, they don't see why anyone would care. PhhfffffT

I only ever spoke to Ken in the chatroom. If I had shouted loud enough, he would have heard me anyway !

I miss the chat room, it was brilliant.

Give an alternative title to my latest photograph.
As the photograph is difficult to find and the site is quiet the closing date is sometime next year and the prize has yet to be determined.
Re: Competition by Spursfan on 30 December 2010 10:34am
Which photo is it Ken? It would be easier if you gave YOUR title for it.

Can I suggest a closing date of St Valentine's Day and a prize of an all-inclusive trip on the Orient Express for the lucky winner and spouse/partner/friend?

Longannet Power Station, Fife
I like your suggestion for a prize, Spursfan - all I need is a sponsor for it!?
