David Taylor (or gingerscot as he's known to the forum) has been around in the community since early 2004. He has played mkdd, mk64 and mkds all to a top 60 level but never quite had the natural skill to be top player, however the commitment was always there and this resulted in many sleepless nights!

MKDD: top position 25th 2 years ago, now 72th Hero B
MK64: top position 54th 1 year ago, now 64th King A
MKDS: top position 19th 6 months ago, now 127th!

He posted considerably on the forums in 2004/5 and has 1027, in his view, good quality posts. This activity led him to becoming a moderator of the general forum, which he still is to this day. Practically no day goes by when a post or topic or poll or Jeff's mess is not deleted by gingerscot. Unfortunately he hasn't been as active as in the past due to work. However, this summer he should make a comeback and get back into the top 100 in MKDS (he can't have that!). Furthermore there are rumours that he has some secret MKSC times up his sleeve. Dave was also one of the "few" on the Mario Kart irc channel during the last few years until Martin McMullan sadly died, which led him to leave the 24h mariokart chat life and try and attempt to earn some money.....he is still trying to this day.
