Hi

Postby gninnur karona

Have enjoyed reading much on this site.

Hope to make an occasional positive contribution.

Generally easier to say what's wrong in the snooker world than to suggest how to put things right.

Once in a while the answer appears to be a no-brainer.

And on those other issues there's always the snookerisland community to find a collective solution.

Welcome, what's your shoe size?

I have never had to give mine, but if anyone is interested - I wear size 10. Though, my shoe size is actually nearer 9 and a half, but not many shoe styles come in half-sizes that high, so I have to slum it in tens.

Hope this helps... <ok>

Your on the list.

Does that mean you’re like... anti hot? :chin:

Chengdufan I'm chuffed you were the first person to welcome me to snooker island. I'm sure I'm not where I want to be but hopefully I'll get there one day. Your 'rankings revisit - a trip through history' thread is an awesome venture. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading the story so far and I look forward to future posts. I'm greatly interested in rendering the ranking system more just. I've experimented with my own ranking system but one of the flaws I've discovered flows from arbitrarily selecting a moment zero. By going back to the beginning of ranking events you have overcome that. There are other difficulties I've encountered. Airing those is for another day.

Running Side thanks for asking. A girlfriend long ago told me that women buy well-fitting shoes because they buy bras. "Think beyond the numbers" she said. I've never forgotten that profound advice. Falling back on the numbers should be a last resort. Kinda like the QSchool order of merit. Maybe you'll strike lucky but the odds are against.

Prop, Dan-Cat, thank-you.
