Hi!
***Some say you should live each day like it was your last... but who wants to live each day in wild panic and extreme death anxiety?

The universe, look at the hugeness of it... it is a dizzying thought that little ol' me is the centre of it all!***

Hi. Might as well formally introduce myself

I'm James (quelle surprise). I'm 19 and from South Wales, although I'm currently living in Coventry while I'm studying History at Warwick University with an eye on going into motorsport journalism

I've been following various forms of motorsport since I was a toddler - F1, WRC, touring cars, endurance racing et all, pretty much anything really. I'm particularly interested in motorsport history

I offered my services to PT for the new website and hope to contribute articles. So I decided to register on the forum as well. Seems to have a nice atmosphere - hopefully I won't get whinged at for posts longer than 3 lines :tongue:

Hope to be constructive in my contributions here

Welcome and thanks for signing up as a contributor to the main site :thumbsup:

You mentioned yourself as being infamous, does that have something to do with writing long posts? :wink: I haven't been an "active" member of TBK for 5 or 6 years despite somehow having admin permissions over there.

Welcome to the fold James, and dont worry, we can all get a bit wordy some of the time.
And some of us can get a bit wordy most of the time..... :blush:

Yeah, certain members over there don't seem to like it if someone sticks up posts that are too long for their attention span, or if someone posts something that goes against the grain. I'd like to think I don't come across as arrogant or anything as it's not my intention...

It's a shame as there are plenty of decent people over there and I don't plan on leaving. But there has always been a minority there who think they're above everyone else and like letting other members know that

There are also the people who don't think before they post. I admit I can be a bit guilty of that at times, but not all the time. There seem to be people who do it all the time.

Only a minority like you said though.
