    A couple of times recently, we’ve had a few new people coming on here and attempting to use this forum to advertise their stuff. It hasn’t gone down especially well, as people have no doubt noticed.

    I really rather let forums moderate themselves as much as possible – over-moderation kills too many forums – but I think it’s worth clarifying our position on this one:

    • We have no issue with established forum members advertising the stuff they’re doing at the moment, as long as you don’t over-do it (and I don’t think any established forum members have).
    • New people should refrain from just posting links to various forums, websites or projects they’re involved in, until they’ve posted a bit here first.
    • If anyone who doesn’t post here seriously has something they think we’d be interested in editorially, drop us a line at admin@ganymede.tv, and we’ll make an editiorial decision on it – and possibly post it to the front page if we think people will be interested.

    Thanks!

    Does this apply to bread-based products?

    What about pimping someone elses stuff?

    I’ve listened to this podcast on and off for a few episodes. It’s not the greatest but I like the pitch – A British sci-fi fan remembering old British sci-fi shows and a North American discovering them for often the first time.

    Anyway the last ‘cast is about a show we’re all quite fond off.

    Funny enough Karl I was on that site a few weeks back and I was looking for a Dwarf one, I could not find one and decided not to bother with it, hmmm, I will give it a go.

    I don’t know it’s one rule for Karl and another for everyone else… just because you love him Cappsy

    No, it just didn’t make sense to draw our attention to something possibly interesting in a thread completely irrelevant to it…

    I’m confused. I thought It sort of connected to this one. In that I was ‘pimping’.

    Sorry Darling.

    It’s not your own stuff, though.

    You see that bit in my first post where I said “What about other people’s stuff”…

    Hey, you may not have heard of this, what with you being in the depths of Nottingham and all, but there’s this thing right – people say stuff and they’re not always serious! Sometimes they even over-react for comic effect. Honestly it’s true, I SWEAR!

    As for you Ian and you Cappsy… I’ll deal with you later, just you wait till I get home!

    It’s the curse of the internetz though isn’t it. It’s not always clear what someone means. I point you back towards my Lost/SFX moment which was read in a totally different way to how I meant it!

    Oooh pardon!

    Guess it would be a bad idea then for me to pimp any of my albums. But in posting this, I may have just pimped by accident. Hmmm. PIMP!

    Sorry if anyone considers me a total, total, whatever it is I am… by coming on to promote/pimp the Aigburth Arms Red Dwarf party! But I really need to reach you lovely fans in order to make the night, want us all to have fun! :) “Fun, ah yes, the passage of time in a profitless and non-practical way.”

    Promise I’m not going to be a one-time only visitor to the boards! Let’s posse! :) Ange xx

    It’s alright if you’re posting something Dwarf related… plus, we were going to write a blog post on the event anyway, so you’ve saved us a job. ;o)

    Funny, I thought the Aigburth no longer existed?

    Not sure where that idea came from. A few of us went about… *gulp* six/seven years ago. There’s no pool table though. Which could have major repercussions for continuity.

    It’s been renamed, but it’s still there.

    (in fact, it’s the renaming that has more significant repercussions for continuity, I suppose. Although that said, people still refer to pubs by their old name a lot of the time. Most people still call the Doric Arch in Euston the Head of Steam, for example.)

    It’s OK, it was changed back to the Aigburth Arms in 2079.

    That comment and your avatar CONFIRM my theory that you are, in fact, a time-travelling robot from the future.

    Thanks Ian! Oh but please do still mention us in your blog if you have the time? If you do I’ll be in my quarters, covered in taramasalata… ;)

    And haha, it’s to be hoped it will be re-named back to the Aigburth Arms one day! We’ve actually asked the landlady whether she would mind installing a plaque to commemorate The Aigburth Arms’ place in Red Dwarf history! Watch this space, there may well be an unveiling on the 11th April :)

    Oh and there is definitely a pool table in there now, saw it with mine own eyes last week. :)

    Three weeks to go!!! Any of you goits planning to come along? Want an idea of numbers for the proportion of curry we’ll have to order :)
