  1. To my knowledge gamera has not once mentioned his place on the forums by name anyway, not in his posts or in his signature.


    The article about gamera is a totally different case. We wanted to interview him as he had an interesting story to tell.


    There definitely is a business aspect to a lot of sport. And if a company wants to advertise to the many thousands of people that use the site/forums, they can contact us and we can talk about it. Registering on these forums and just promoting themselves is not something we will accept.

  2. No need to worry about this one - Tsuchitaru is a tiny tiny 300 meter long one run type of place deep in the valley nearest to Gunma.... they only used to get visitors in the low thousands for the whole season even in peak times.


    Apparently (and this is not confirmed, just what I heard from some Yuzawa people), the reason for having it was that they had a cunning plan to have an I.C. made on the Kanetsu Expressway directly from Tsuchitaru through the mountain to Naeba, and Tsuchitaru was strategically placed if they were going to go ahead with that. That plan never went ahead of course and is extremely unlikely to!!

  3. Over the last few months or so, we’ve been busy working on some new stuff and changes for the site in time for next season. You’re going to have to wait a while to see those changes online, but in preparation for that over the next week we are going to be doing some fiddly technical work on our server which will affect the site and Forums.


    So what, you say?! Well, most of the site should be unaffected, but it will mean that over the next week or so there will be times when the Forums are either:


    - turned off (in which case you won’t be able to read them)


    - you will not be able to post new messages or reply to any messages (in which case you will be able to read the Forums but won’t be able to add anything).


    So things will probably seem especially quiet during this period. As usual, we’ve picked one of the least busy weeks of the year on the Forums to do this work to cause the least disruption.


    We’re hoping that from around the 23rd, things will get back to normal again.


    Anyway, continue posting (you’ll easily find out if you can’t when you try) and we’ll try to get all this done as quickly as possible.


    Sorry for any disruption!



  4. OK, again thanks for the designs that were sent in for the competition and thanks for all the votes as well.


    There were 3 designs clearly got the most votes (the three shown in this post below).


    So now it's time to vote for a winner.

    Basically each person gets one vote.


    There's also a second question to answer in the poll - please be honest.


    Also note that while comments in the thread are of course fine, "votes" posted within this thread will not be counted - if you want to vote, please make an official vote in the poll!


    Many thanks!















    Info on the original comp:


  5. Just thought we'd mention another change that has been made.


    Until now when people registered on the Forums, there was no email address check to make sure that the email address provided was valid.


    We have now changed the settings so that people who register on the Forums receive an email with a password - and then once they have been approved they login using the password that thet have been provided with. (Basically verifying that they entered a valid email address).


    This of course doesn't affect people who are already logged in. However, because we require that each email address now be verified, any change of your email address will result in an automatic change of your password by the system; this new password would be emailed to the new email address that you list in the form. (And of course you can change the new password to whatever you like once you are logged in to the Forums).


    This has been changed to increase security on the Forums.
