Are we sure cobbles wasn't another account of James Martin? 😛

This ‘Donald Trump bans media from nomination’ thread by Ne1LC is surely one of the oddest ever, with precious little relevance to TV presentation!

I think current circumstances just mean we've had a longer than usual period with a reduced signal to noise ratio. It's like an extended summer holiday period, really. Eventually the newer posters ought to get the hang on the netiquette; get bored and leave; or get the ban hammer.

There's still enough good stuff there to keep me returning - largely posts from people who work in the industry, plus a handful who don't but have been around for long enough to know the ins and outs. I still find out the occasional thing that's going on at work from the forum before I hear it through official channels...

I agree, I particularly liked the recent set design and lighting thread. Also, some of the international presentation and classics threads interest me as it's obviously a quiet time for new presentation over here, and in general.

I just don't go near threads like Presenter Counts, Rotas, GMB or BBC Breakfast as the conversations just go round in circles. I mean - how can anyone still be surprised by The Express publishing clickbait crap about TV shows? Just ignore it, don't post it then discuss it!

Read the above post carefully, or there will be consequences.

I swear the ITV 2019 thread has devolved into talking about someone's signature and someone's mock than relevant to the actual branding itself. Granted, the mock is great, but it feels like the thread has changed focus.
I'm that guy from that forum. No, not this one.

I see the gallery has turned in to mocking the TV Forum logo now. Are the kiddies really that bored from not being at school?

EDIT: Complete with mocked up graphic in Powerpoint!

Who the heck rated that 5 stars?!

(actually a question I've been asking about many of the recent mocks)

The gallery seems to have been taken over by that Nancer person and that BiggieSMLZ person. I haven’t seen a design from anyone else lately.

I sometimes mark mocks with a lower or higher mark then I actually think I should give them if I think the average is off.

I like the idea that someone would need to Asa what he thinks of it, as if he wouldn’t see it for himself.
