FREE MONEY!!!

Post by kiwigeo » Fri Feb 23, 2018 9:49 am

Now that I have your attention....a couple of requests for all members:

1. A few of you have email addresses that are no longer valid. Could everyone please check the email addresses they have logged with the forum and update if necessary.
2. Please check your PM in boxes. Some of you have full boxes so messages are bouncing.
3. Over the next few days the Admins plan to prune out members who's accounts have been inactive for a significant length of time. At the moment were tentatively looking at culling out anyone who hasn't logged into the forum within the last 12 months.
4. In the near future we plan to solicit donations to assist in paying for the running costs of this forum. With Bob retiring from active duty we are making a few changes to the hosting arrangements for the forum and there will be some extra running costs involved.
5. If you've joined the forum but haven't posted anything and you want to remain a member then put up a post even if it's just to introduce yourselves.

Cheers and thanks The Management :)

Okay fair enough, but where is the free money?

That part of the announcement was a blatant lie designed to attract everybody's attention. Next time you're down in Adelaide hit me up for a beer :)

Is the Donate thread still active? Can we still donate to Bobs paypal, or is another link going up?

PS: Don't donate to the old thread...Bob will take off to Tasmania with the money and blow it all on whiskey.

Geez, you go away for a few years and look what happens!
Haven't been active in the luthier field for a couple of years now due to ongoing family matters but that doesn't stop me dropping by occasionally to drool over everybody else's work. If I ever get back into it I can see I'm going to have to lift me game. You guys are making that hill steeper and steeper for this poor old bugger! :(

Hey there Nick, nice to hear from you after so long. Yes some of us are still here. Bob has gone off to make whisky leaving me and Jeremy in charge. I'm taking a break from guitar making for a new house build but will be back into it once the new palace is built. I do hope you'll get back into the building....your input into the forum is missed.
