Arrow Update to Wrist Twisters

Hey, just to give everyone an update about Wrist Twisters.

I plan on being more active here in the WT community. All I did was ride over the summer, spent 2 months of it just riding the United States and Canada, and came back to a job that didnt wait around those 2 months. I'm a single guy, so my holiday season time right now is just focusing on Wrist Twisters and with that I wanted to say:

I'm currently working with the staff of this forum, as we identify some problematic areas, and we are creating some solutions and community guidelines to handle these areas. Expect to see a post about this in the days ahead. The moderators here have a thankless job and their effort and energy toward WT is admirable.

You will also see more contribution from me in the WT community. At the end of the day, I'm just a guy who likes motorcycles. I love to ride them, talk about them, motorcycles is my language.

I completely understand that for the lifetime of this forum, just like any forum, there will always be something that needs to be done, some feature to add, some bug in the software to fix, some function that doesnt work quite right. I plan on working through those as they arise, but at the end of the day, my heart and passion is to talk about motorcycles, so expect to see all of that from me.

If you have any questions, comments, concerns, feedback, thoughts, gripes, complaints, feedback, spam, hate mail, love mail, poems – my email is always open at lash at wristtwisters dot com and I’ll respond as I read them and I really like poems, but they have to be good ones. Haikus are ok too, but I really like poems.

thanks for keeping the site running and thanks to all the moderators for the time and effort you all put into this site.

Good to see you back Lash, we've barely gotten to know you. I think everyone will welcome a greater forum presence from you.

Welcome back, I know a few people wondered where you had been.

Hopefully the changes you make will make this a better place.

I wish you the best of luck, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

I almost achieved a negative 60,000 rating, so I for one am glad to see it go.

It seemed biased and unfair, good move IMO.

Hi Lash, welcome back

Flying down the road,
Insect hits the rider's eye
So poignant you splatter, bug
Better you than me.

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Yep. Currently you can still leave +/- rep and comments for someone, and you can still view yours like stated above. That may disappear altogether as well.

The donate button is gone also.

There's more changes that will be rolled out very soon.

Hmmm....I....well....hmmm, not sure about all that. So no donations wanted or required? And no more cumulative rep power points? Worked hard for those 10,000+ points, and POOF!

I would suggest you barter for casino cash equal to your rep.

Ah, but I'm not a gambler. Have given away all my casino cash many times, have better things to do with my time than sit and watch imaginary money disappear.
