Roger DC– How many chess players does it take to change a light bulb?
Paul M – I do wish people would stop bringing light bulbs into this it's total ****
Krishna – That's a lovely question Roger and I think you should write a book about it and feed the worlds poor
Ernie – I don't think this light bulb got blown on it's own. I wouldn't be surprised if the secret underground light bulb blowing mafia are responsible
Professor – FFS
Alex H – The light bulb rule compendium 2012 stipulates that chess players should not change light bulbs unless:
a) They are wearing rubber boots
b) They have passed the arbiters rule 10.3 “How to change a light bulb course thingy” and read David Welsh's most up-to-date diagram/example booklet
Carl H – I don't see the point of this and am seriously and keenly thinking about possibly some time in the future closing this thread down until it's dead (unless anyone objects in which case I will change my mind)
Stewart R – I remember when I was emperor of Persia in 398 BC. Although we didn't have light bulbs we did have candles which resembled them in many ways and I solved the changing candle problem by arranging very hard to get sponsorship
Charie S – I am a chess ninja and have developed a range of little ninja miracle bulb changing thingymabobs available from all known thingymabob stores if you give me loadsamoney
Professor - FFS

E Michael - The arbiters have misinterpreted the rules about how to change a lightbulb.
Martin - Everyone should have a vote about how to change the lightbulb.
David P - Sean ... didn't consult ... the club representatives ... about how to cast his ... lightbulb vote.
Sean - e2e4 run the best tournaments. Our lightbulbs never fail except when David S arrives.
Alex M - Adam should ask himself if he was responsible for the lightbulb failure.
Michael W - Adam shouldn't have put up a humorous sign about the lightbulb failure. I won't play in his tournaments any more.
Justin - Ray Keene plagiarised the obituary of the lightbulb, and CJ and Nigel were probably involved as well. Questions should be asked.
Richard - I remember a lightbulb failing at a junior tournament in 1977. We don't have strong junior tournaments like that any more because we're putting kids into tournaments too soon.
Leonard - Yes, it was the sixth highest rated Under 10 lightbulb in the country as well.
Jack - Let's all calm down and have a nice cup of tea!

"I vote for a LIKE button to be available! "

Sorry, this needs to be proposed by a Director, or two counties or four tournaments, or (Alex H - please fill in rest)

Roger needs to decide what level of ECF member gets the button as part of their overall benefits package :roll:
