Re: 2010 Photo Thread: Because Love, Beauty and Bespoke Tailoring will save the world

guys, I really don't see the need to go to such lengths to discuss where pics can or cannot be posted. Now that we're expecting less traffic in this forum and marat doesn't "appear" that often anymore, unlike in previous years where we get tournament pics every day, I don't see any problem in posting older, "rarer" pics.

Having said that, I sometimes like to scroll through the old piccies thread to see all the crazy things we said when the pics first came out. and all the dumb things I used to say I think sometimes the things we said were crazier than the pics (actually, make that everytime)

and no, we really don't need a poll for this

By all means, I surely will. And I hope the photos I post aren't just "any pic".
Sory about the "any", my english ain"t perfect. I really meant I don't care what year the pics are from anyway.
MMm, but I think you missed the joke about 2010 here. I saw these old pics and remembered my first intervention on this topic, on first page received this comment from you :

Perfectly put! I don't think this is a particularly heated discussion - just some suggestions, it's a shame if that's taken wrongly. I like seeing old pictures and appreciate the effort it takes to post them, I just would really like to see a thread with purely new 2010 photos.

Thanks, Penny, I didn't think so either, my tongue was firmly wedged in my cheek when I made that suggestion!

Just to say, at no point have I taken anything personally or amiss, or felt any heat in the discussion. I hope I addressed people's points rationally and logically.

But I find it unusual that, whereas forum members were quite happy in previous photo threads to post or enjoy pics from different years (even in this 2010 one, to post pics from 2005 and 2009), suddenly now a wish is expressed to restrict the 2010 photo thread to current-year-only pics.

I'm guessing this wish is not widely held, although I may be wrong, but given there will be comparatively fewer new photos of Marat to post from now on, to place such a rigid restriction makes no sense whatsoever to me.

I don't know about that, although I think you might have missed my reply! Here it is again:

Re: 2010 Photo Thread: Because Love, Beauty and Bespoke Tailoring will save the world

I'm a new forum user. Personally, I find it good to see not only the (rare) 2010 photos but also some of the rarely seen older photos. Perhaps if we had a "rare photos" thread, then all the 2010 photos should go in that too, since there aren't that many of them! (Joke - people). I do look at the older threads, but I do that in little bits, because there really are so many older threads and some of them have so much in them. So I'm with the idea that we continue the "Because love, beauty and Bespoke tailoring" thread with both the rarely seen older photos and the rarely taken 2010 photos.

If there weren't "2010" in the thread title, this conversation would never have happenened.

Re: 2010 Photo Thread: Because Love, Beauty and Bespoke Tailoring will save the world

Hi everyone! I hadn't been here for some days and I read all the discussion, and saw all the pics right now.
As I'm a new user, it's exactly the same for me, I have to explore all the threads little by little anyway but I undestand both oppinions. For me it's just the same so I hope you guys come to an agreement
all the pics, which are great. I am always amazed at how PERFECT Marat is!

Oh, Mer, this photo!!!

One crazy Romanian bitch literally died in here trying to figure out just what’s your connection with Mr. Safin.

I know, I know… I’ve made this speculation before…and you said that you are in no way related to him…but…well, let me put it this way: such photos arouse my imagination.

I wish..but in fact nothing intriguing. One of Marat's friends posted this pic on his page long time ago.

Re: 2010 Photo Thread: Because Love, Beauty and Bespoke Tailoring will save the world

Well, Mer, then thank God for that friend of his posting such a priceless photo…that booty surely deserves proper worldwide recognition and hopefully this will be just the right kick!

And now - as I suffer from split personality - I am forced to allow Miss Marple in me to ask you: then why have you edited the photo, then why have you edited the photo, then why have you edited the photo??!!

Thx again and hope you’ll take my joke for what it is (after all, I’ve heard great things about Russian humor)

hehe sorry to disappoint you but there is nothing really juicy on the pic. I just thought at first I shouldn't post it because it's kind of personal, with other people on it... on the other hand the guy put it on his page so why not guess It's silly I know
