SHE WILL RIDE NAKED AROUND BGG UNTIL THE IDIOTIC "IRRELEVENT" REJECTION REASON IS REMOVED FROM GEEKMOD.

HER PLAN IS PROBABLY NOT WELL THOUGHT OUT.

Good heavens, she's gonna be here forever! Good thing the BGG is based in Texas -- if it was in St. Paul, Minnesota, she have her "assets" frozen off this weekend for sure! -60 degree windchill anyone? gulp

I was sort of expecting a naked lady on a horse kicking someone down a well.

"THIS IS GODIVA!!!!"

This is still the Internet, no?

Aww... true, it's getting old, but some of it is pretty funny. "This is Zelda!", "This is Jenga!" - I guess I am just easy to please. I think a naked lady on a horse kicking people down a well is funny.

Especially if she has a big bushy beard.

Nice horse!

A guaranteed headline to get the viewers interested, but subject matter boring.

Keep the picture, dump the text.

Will she be handing out chocolate? If so, I don't find her irrelevant at all.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

I will grant you she looks like Godiva, but it can't be her because the city is way too nice, clean and unpopulated by mouth-breathing ^%&*-wits to be Coventry.

And I speak from 3 bitter years experience as an inhabitant.

Well it isn't Coventry she's in, it's BGG, but a lot of your point still stands.

I just got a picture of dice rejected for Farkel because it was "irrelevant". How is a picture of dice irrelevant for a dice game. (by the way I use different color dice to make it easier to see)

Godiva was a lady who through Coventry did ride
To show to all the villagers her fine and lily-white hide
The most observant villager, an engineer of course
Was the only one to notice that Godiva rode a horse

Said she, "I've come a long, long way and I will go as far
With the man who takes me from this horse and leads me to a bar"
The men who took her from her steed and stood her to a beer
Were a blurry-eyed surveyor and a drunken engineer

"Here's a picture of a beautiful, naked girl. She'll be around here until you do what I say, at which point she will leave..."

This plan, methinks, was not very well thought out. cool

Funny, what came to mind for me was...

Lady Godiva was a freedom rider
She didn't care if the whole world looked
Joan of Arc with the Lord to guide her
She was a sister who really cooked

I'm not familiar with John Collier, but he's not as crisp as my favourite, Alma-Tadema.

It seems some people check irrelevant to mean 'pointless' or 'unnecessary' as opposed to 'not related'.

Whether they are right or wrong to do so is debatable, but it appears that's what some people mean.
