I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

I'm Danny Woodhouse from the East-End

ive been watching Countdown since about the age of 6 in 1986- so ive lived through the grey/yellow cards, Cathy Hytner, the 500th show, Countdown Masters, the red/white cards, the 1000th show - and who'd have thought 29 years later we would be at 7000 odd programmes.

I'm William Bermudez from the US!

I'm a 25 year old substitute teacher in Chicago and first found out about Countdown on the old WeDigTV site back in 2007. I play Apterous and regularly watch Countdown on All 4 with a VPN. I enjoy game shows of all types, having auditioned in the past for Jeopardy, Millionaire, and $100,000 Pyramid, and I also enjoy playing drums and watching classic movies.

Re: Welcome! - Post here first An apology

Post by Jamie Smith » Fri Sep 20, 2019 8:24 am

Hi Countdowners

My name is Ashton Hancock, and I signed up to this website in May 2019, and I want to issue an apology.

I come on this website and acted like an arse for no reason, I just did it as one of many immature things I have done in my life, can I just open up on something.

I am a 12 year old boy with autism and mental health issues and I wanted some attention, I think it is right to apologize at this stage for everything that I have done and I want it to be put behind us all, In late June Charlie banned me from C4Countdown and he did the right thing, but now may you delete all my posts and forget them and give me a fresh start now you know who I am better, I will be attending CoLin 2020 and I don’t want any mentions of my actions when I attend this event. I hope you all accept my apology please give your honest thoughts on this thread.

Ashton

Hi C4Countdowners!!!

I’m Andy, I’m a maths tutor currently in lockdown here in Estonia 🇪🇪.

I’ve recently played my 1st game on Apto and I’m hoping to play CoApto on Saturday.

Stay safe everyone.

Hi! I'm Anthony, I'm a software analyst from London, and I've occasionally watched Countdown my whole life but started watching more regularly in lockdown and while working from home.

Jono said pretty much the same thing but I was just welcoming the new poster, unlike you unwelcoming and rude people.

Welcome from a fellow Canuck! I'd suggest you try Apterous if you'd ever be interested in playing against the best.
Q: What is the longest word in the world?
A: "Gigaparsecs", because there is a gigaparsec before the last S.

Thank you Gavin and Johnny. I am scared of getting into gaming as i had a brush with addiction to a game in the past.

Nothing to be ashamed of, unless it was "the game" rather than "a game". What was it?
