    Toys and games.

    Last week, when the UK shut schools, every board game, every jigsaw, every Dungeons and Dragons set, every arts and crafts kit, flew out the door. Flipped from two really poor weeks when we started shutting things down, where people weren't buying much, to last week where everyone was trapped at home and suddenly everyone wanted anything to keep their kids entertained.

    As BH said, it's a silver lining at an awful time. And there's a little worry that Amazon aren't letting sellers send stock in currently, so next week could be dire, but at the moment, I know I'm extremely lucky to say business is going very well, considering how many are struggling.

    Linky to your store?

    I super appreciate the sentiment, but I don't share it on here, cause it has my address linked (Amazon require an address to be displayed for return addresses), and I've reasons to want to avoid that on boards :P

    No worries at all Lord, I wouldnt mind throwing you some business considering Ive a little one. Sure you have my number if you wanna share it that way too. Glad business is doing well.




  • My write-up will be pretty much only the matches. I had most of the show written and cannot find where I saved it. I have one save from earlier in the process but no chance I will

    A. Get the time

    nor

    B. The desire to do it again.

    Ah yeah, I was planning on giving one week maybe reading post deadline.

    I suppose I had best ask the question, does anyone want a one week extension on submitting the write ups at this point?

    I wouldnt mind a week extension because with this Lockdown i have officially gotten addicted to Netflix and spend most of my time on that. Will aim to get my pre ppv show up this weekend

    Sure. If there are no objections and since it's Easter I'll give a one week extension until 18th April.

    Is that ok with everyone?




  • Happy wiith extension. Not sure if i’ll get a full write up done I’m afraid, but I’ll throw up a PPV card anyway!




  • Same as Daithi for me.




  • I'll be posting a close to full PPV anyway. Might not finish every single match based off my current speed of writing but it'll be pretty in depth at the very least.



    Anyone here understand Youtube analytics ? This one surprised me

    You might have noticed a Youtube video in my build up show called The Worst of WWF in 10mins. I actually made that video about 4 years ago by crudely chopping together different videos for this draft. I ended up not getting the roster I had planned on getting (Hogan, Vince, Pattterson, Snuka etc) so never used it until this year. It has just sat on youtube with about 10 views for those 4 years.

    I posted it on the draft thread this year (and nowhere else) on the 23rd of last month... the exact time the video started getting more views. Suddenly the past few days I keep getting emails telling me I have new subscribers (had 0 prior to this) despite the fact that every other video of mine is even older than that one and worse made, back from the boards Efed days.

    Now I have 57 subscribers, the video has 174 Comments on it (up from zero ha) and 37,394 views!

    edit: might as well include the video




  • +1 on the extension please.

    Thank you Necro and Happy Easter all




  • almost finished my last show but lots of editing needs to be done on both my Word and then changing the fonts/colours on here




  • Preview post done. Hope to have it posted tomorrow night with images. I hope you all have time to read.




  • My last show is done and hoping to have it up tonight/tomorrow




  • Here is my main PPV 'WWC Clash For The Kingdom'

    https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=113157199&postcount=271

    had a great time doing this, best of luck to everyone else :D:D




  • My Preview post is up

    https://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=113161400&postcount=272

    Lots of blood sweat and tears went into this, and not just Ric Flairs!

    Hope you all enjoy and can't wait to read other submissions.

    Thanks for the extension Necro, which was needed as I don't have as much freetime as I am still working from home; and most of all thanks for talking me into taking part. I think I re-found some of the old fire.

    PPV will be up before weeks end and won't be as long.




  • I've everything ready, just have to upload it as text. Will only do one post, since COVID 19 has made my work busier than ever!




  • Gonna upload mine this evening some time and also make a start on reading the other cards.

    Apologies for my barebones effort. I had a horse load of stuff written but cannot find it anywhere. I think I might have accidentally saved over it and I honestly have no desire to re-do it despite the extension.




  • tenor.gif

    Thankfully cos I split it over 2 posts because of number of pics etc half my PPV is in the can but I just lost so much due to my computer crapping out on me when stuff was not saved!

    Gonna have to re-write all the Vince/Trump related stuff / matches now and fear the other bits (primarily the tag team situation) from that half of the PPV might be bare bones as I usually have very little time each day for myself atm.

  • I have two matches written and am pushed for time so I'm likely going to have to do very bare bones for the rest myself. Weirdly struggling this year when normally I love the write ups portion.




  • What was the new deadline date?

    Oh Can you be a dear and extend it until Sunday?




  • Can I second that request? Working from home wasn't too bad but I'm after getting a lot of tasks the last couple days




  • Sure, no problem.

    Let's say midnight Sunday the 19th.

    I'll then allow a week or so for reading before I open the voting.

    Cheers Necro. A week should be plenry of time




  • What's the story with regards announcers? Are they eligible to everybody?

    I am doing a Hogan promo on my PPV so I'm wondering if I can do the 'You know something, Mean Gene' line.

    If not, I'll improvise. Mean Oisin maybe. :pac:




  • What's the story with regards announcers? Are they eligible to everybody?

    I think if they weren't drafted they're communal property. So if 12 of us want Michael Cole commentating as an eg then that's fine imo. Similar for undrafted backstage people like Mean Gene.
