New Members and Mini Coopers

Postby ash » Sat Jun 25, 2016 9:44 am

Just vaguely intrigued as to why so many new members have Mini Coopers as their boat type.

You can't see existing members profiles until you log in so you would need to have already registered.

Lots of lucky guessing? Same guy?

Does Nick run a Mini Forum somewhere else?

Does BlueMoment have a significance to car owners?

I seem to remember a thread somewhere where they were discussing how well they go to windward, could have been TOP.

I thought this was a reference to Mr & Mrs Cooper's recent family wedding and the reason why you normally keep the top tier of the wedding cake.

That old chestnut :D

Ours either had too much brandy in it (or not enough). It was well beyond edible for it's intended 2nd life!
Disn'y matter since both boys have turned out fine :)

So the latest is ClintonHum, who is from Mongolia and who has a Mini Clubman D boat type.

It's a bit of a gap in the software. You can't see their posts (believe me they've nothing to do with cars or boats :) ) but you can see their profiles - at least until I delete them.

Ah, didn't realise that they were actually posting too.

You must be kept busy, I take a glance at the Latest Member name when I'm on, and it seems to change quite a lot. I don't always look at their profile.
