    Where has my thread gone?

    That's because I keep getting BSF advice messages that there are Posts, I respond, and most seem to be from you!

    That was my late dear wife.

    As previously commented: hours of wasted time being created and now all forgotten. As much on the BSF also will be.

    On a rare occasion I agree with you iris123. These old forums were horrendous. All they created as can be judged were hours of wasted time and effort.

    I had forgotten about all that. It was as can be seen a dreadful boring task. Facebook is far superior and as a member of its leading speedway forum I enjoy visiting it very much.

    I was actually pretending to be Jack Keen.I used the name "in good faith" then worryingly recalled there had been a rider of that name. Here's some more old long vanished speedway links that might be of interest. http://subedei.proboards.com/board/54/speedway-links I can't be bothered with that sort of thing these days. Much prefer the very active FB forum where I enjoy - and get praise sometimes.

    This was at least six years ago. There was a REAL Jack Keen who was a New Cross junior in 1946 and rode briefly for Exeter at the start of 1947. I think the group yu refer to was one that ran for some years and was controlled by the respected speedway artist Jim Blanchard. I have also found a Link to a Proboard group[ that I ran with little member support. I think it was initially The Weird World of Speedway, then had a title change as shown in the Link. What a waste of time that was. http://subedei.proboards.com

    That was the BSF in about 2012. Poor old speedyguy and "other then post members" were justifiably kicked out of the BSF. It must have been a year gap before I was allowed to return to the BSF.

    I did indeed have groups on Proboards sites. As happened with the welcome advent of Facebook they lost popularity. They were among other Proboards sites outside my jurisdiction that also 'died a slow death.' I am a member of FB forum that has a membership near to the same size as the BSF. It is a pleasure to visit there.

    Yes Proper Speedway is really attracting attention. As I calculate it's massive two posts average daily!

    As I mentioned previously you lose all substance for attempted comment when you need to revert to semi-abuse.

    Where has my thread gone?

    The guy you refer probably will be lucky. I appear to be blocked by the group - I tried twice for a renewal membership and have been told elsewhere in this thread not to apply!

    Wimbledon's final meeting

    Many thanks indeed for a responsive reply prodons. It's sad how many years have passed - all too quickly sadly - since when we were in contact at Wimbledon. In regard to your excellent reply - and my poor maths skills - how many seasons in total; is that for each motorised formats. I make it 60 seasons for speedway and 55 seasons for the cars.

    Both the past tense and the past participle of 'to learn' can be written as either learned or learnt.
