I bet you're the kind of people who watch "Least used stations" videos to watch binbags blowing in the wind ;)

Sittingbourne powerbox does come with bonus features of shopping trolly on the line, idiots parking cars on the crossing, feral kids and adults playing on the tracks, overhigh lorries getting stuck under the bridge thus knocking that bit of cable out of the socket and the usual overnight copper cable theft.

Yep, after that last one the first thing to pop into my head was "Are all in the North".

Oh my God, what an awesome coincidence!

A few days ago I put the finishing touches to a magazine PDF for a German retro community (very similar to the Crap parody, but with more pages). The 2nd page has an advert with four game covers ... and one of them is "Green Bert" as I've seen it mentioned so often in the past.

Well, the mag will be released on the 19th but I doubt any of the members from the other community will see this here, so what the heck:

Unbelievable!! Sorry pall, it's like UK/US Dennis the Menace thing or when Antz & a Bug's Life were made at the same time!

I did wonder if anyone else had done it before. Yours is more creative though, apologies!

I guess the game has to be made now. :lol:

I had a friend who I went to arcades with, particularly the one at Kettering's Wicksteed Park (imagine Alton Towers built on 5% of its budget, and after an apocalypse). He was gutted that one of his all-time favourite games wasn't there, telling me how good it was.

Well, for a year I tried to search out arcades to find this "Green Berry". Yep.

I pictured it as some cutesy early 80s post-Pac-Man game - cartoon berries wandering round a maze or something. I still like this idea.

It's OK @PeterJ we're only joking, we do get why the add-ons have stripped back ;)

I suggest everyone contacts the Post Love Like button author, and asks them to update it so it works with version 3.3 of the forum software.

One does simply remove it @XTM , when it's not compatible anymore! I miss it too, but I'm not risking a broken system.

All good, it was merely a meme, not a criticism of what you've done. :idea:
