not without sponsors etc.

I am not saying hes in it for the money as i would have offered good money for the place but its hard to belive otherwise really.

zero activity, this place could of been spamed galore and he would never know. Let alone the new members that are not active. A person i employ joined 3 months ago.... not activated...

Shame none the less

as I said last night Ross .... young Alex down the road from me is still awaiting his activation after even longer

I know for a fact that he would be an active and interesting contributor

I know the pic thing is a PITA for a lot of folk ....... but if the new member's applications were just 'kept on top of', it would be something.

As has been said ...... Julian must have 'some' interest or he'd have just pulled the plug long ago, without even a 'bye'.

It's in out nature to moan .... but what we have is 110% better than no forum ...... end of !!

totally agree ...... and it's also the 'dodge city' episodes that make it a very interesting place to frequent, aside from all the other great banter and info.

Long may it continue ........ foibles, warts and all

what are we moaning about, its great here, we get left to our own devices, we self moderate and all get a long most of the time. theres no ****** sitting on his pc banning people for swearing or arguing. its brill.

another forum set up would seem like treason to me... although i set up a facebook page in the same name. that was when the forum was down and no one had any way of getting on touch, it has turned in to a mildly used page with lots of pics and videos. so it works as a side line without pulling people away from here.

yeah, theres no money to be made here. forums make money from advertising, theres the earthmovers ad to the right, and a halomec one and i think thats it. then they have to be clicked for a penny or three. the real money comes from having a lot of traffic to a forum, not just regulars, but people looking in deom search engines, so more storage to keep threads costs more and so on. i suspect if you had 1000+ people who were using a forum weeekly then you might make it cover its cost?
i bet i make more money from my youtube videos (60-80 a year)
