Good afternoon. Settle down please. Thank you. Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Professor Louche, and it is my privilege to deliver the 2015 State of the Beans Address.
A full analysis of the activities of the last year has been conducted by our team of expert analysts and we are able to describe the current position of the website to within four millimetres.
Summary of the year
In January 2014 The Beans was relaunched with a renewed intent to operate as a blog website with posts and comments and that.
Throughout the year lots of posts were made by everyone, except Kev who was too busy grouting his drainpipes to join in.
Together we have achieved a total of 82 posts and 784 comments, some of which were actually fairly interesting.
Contribution of what individual contributors have contributed
Ian was issued a target of making two, three or four posts per month. He scored ten beans in 2014, having achieved this ten times. He would have scored eleven beans but a terrible problem with the space-time continuum meant that one of his July posts was actually in August. Ian has, however, yet to fill in his Not About Ian page.
Chris was issued a target of making at least four posts per month. He scored six beans, and his normal performance was to make the required number every other month, with a fallow period at other times. Most of his posts had a picture in them. Chris filled in his Not About Chris page with a load of outright lies.
Kev was issued a target of making at least three posts per month, which was revised down from an original target of four. He scored two beans over the course of 2014 because he mostly wasn’t here. We don’t need to discuss whether he filled in the Not About Kev page.
2014 has been a very strong start to the New Beans and Ian has been the winner. Well done everyone.
