The most progressive backyard place in the country?
Not backward these days.

Cutting edge tourism spots all over state, wine trails as good as any, most diverse in landscape like a mini NZ South Island, most famous weekly market in Australia, highest rent to salary avg in Australia.

It's just more boutique not backward.

Just a query about postal ballots. There are a bunch of 'new' Big Footy members at the retirement village across the road who indicated they would like to vote for POTY. There was a bit of disappointment when they heard GR, Snake and Zondor had been rubbed out but they were reassured that I was still eligible despite a bit of a minimalist COVID-safe approach to posting in 2020. The issue is that they prefer voting by HB pencil, so I said I would facilitate the postal ballot process for them. We might just pop them in the same envelope to save on stamps as Choppy hasn't provided prepaid envelopes. And do they need to arrive before the 31st or just postmarked?

Is this the correct address:
Overlord Choppy
c/- Mods Table
Chaddy Food Court
Chaddy Shopping Centre
Chaddy

And what was the prize again?
Im sure a bit of a pisstake which I like but if Mods are happy with collecting of have a PO Box then sure thats absolutely fine.

More votes the merrier so that sounds great!

$250 at RooShop. I decided to increase it as 50 wasn't enough.

I wouldn't be comparing to NZ.
The place that has a near on 100% domestic violence rate across the nation when the all blacks lose.

Should I invoke a rule that all posters with Aliases that mods are aware of (which they would be) are automatically suspended?

It has merit as it should be one vote for one person. Maybe it's too late.

Thoughts the esteemed North BF community?
Why not just ban all posters whose name does not start with “G”.

Heaps of posters have aliases Choppy. I have three. It's only against the rules to use them when one is banned.

Alt accounts/ multiple accounts...
What is the motivation behind this?
What purpose does it serve?
I guess I’m too old school to understand

It varies. Some would solely be gimmick accounts, played for a communal laugh. Others exist more nefariously for sockpuppeting purposes(to deceive/manipulate the discourse by making things seem more/less popular, or to attack posters etc). Some exist simply to evade bans.

The majority of alt accounts would exist for one of the three reasons above.

Yeah actually I'm surprised they're allowed. Imagine someone being attacked by three or four posters and made to feel like sh*t but it's actually the same fu**en poster. Not saying all would use it for nefarious purpose but some I have no doubt would.

The mind boggles.

It will get you votes Ferbs and you may very well beat one of my aliases for the POTY Title but sadly you or the club won’t see any money from Choppys. :stern look
Considering I've asked the money (in case anything happens to me) to be put in trust on my behalf I think you may simply be full of sh*t.
