Hi peanut

qotd suffers from h2g2 apathy. Nobody sends in quotes.

I used to be in charge of updating it, then it passed to geggs and finally to Magwitch. We all found the same thing.

Weird. I can't reach this thread in Pliny. It redirects to the front page. But I'm sure this is known, so no point in me putting in a bug report.

I wouldn't be so sure, I've never seen that happen before. Please go ahead and post the bug report. Thanks for pointing it out.

It is not apathy I struggle with it is finding quotes

I am sure that 2legs and TC have sent in quotes

I have.

If there is a not the volunteer capacity to do it then that is understandable.

Maybe a quote of the week would be manageable?

I gave up doing qotd at the end of last year. For purely personal reasons, really. I've taken on larger responsibilities at work and at church, and I simply needed to free up some time to fit the rest of my life in and, truth be told, qotd was the thing that I could most easily give up. Not that I wanted to give it up, and I agonised over the decision for several months, but I didn't really have much choice.

So, you see, my reasons where nothing to do with the site, and entirely to do with finding time to breathe.

Hi Geggs

You did an amazing job with QOTD, smiley - applause and thank you very much.

I hope all is going well with and you are finding time to breathe. smiley - goodluck and best wishes smiley - magic

I can see that it was a difficult decision for you but it was the right one. smiley - ok

The reason I asked was that I was wondering if quotes were still wanted and if someone had taken on the role.

I miss random quotes and lurks like

(Jack) not in a mood to work today, though, because he managed to eat an entire four-pound molasses and corn treat lick last night. We cantered around in a circle for 20 minutes before he'd walk, it was like that episode of Father Ted with the bomb in the milk float...

I have sent quotes in, so have other people but it doesn't change, so I have been sticking to odd one I see here.

When I were a lad, and played for my school team, we just wore a t-shirt the right colour.

Mind, we used to have to lick pitch clean wi' our tongues before 't match as well.
