Points & Miles Blogs forum will pass...

In accordance with the guidelines that means we'll announce if a motion has passed or failed once enough yes or no votes have been recorded by TB members, this is the public notice that this motion will pass as it has secured 6 yes votes.

Please note that not all TB members have voted yet, and so a final announcement with who voted yes/no will not be posted until all 9 have voted or the voting period ends.

Congratulations, Kokonutz. I did weigh in early on with a newbie's opinion and I am glad to see the new forum will be formed. Thanks for your effort. Much appreciated. See you in the new forum.

I believe this should be 6-2-0 (with one not voting) -- unless we've somehow added two members whilst I wasn't looking!

IMHO not enough members bothered for whatever reason to share their thoughts on this topic for it to gain real traction but what's done is done and hopefully the forum becomes a circus in the British traffic sense of the word as a crossroads or junction rather than in the more common American context of a circus as a entertainment spectacle with clowns & animals.
