It's not cheap setting up websites and training the people who run it. 2.6 million more than has been spent on here :lol:
At least this site is supervised by highly-skilled, intelligent and rather fetching-looking people, don't you think?
Yes

Top man in his day. Although not very nice by all accounts.

Is there any good reason why people couldn't propose things to sell on THIS site? I appreciate that the membership has yet to achieve what it deserves, but there may well be members who don't live far away from others.

But it’s nice to know that you would like to see this place grow :P
You have 287 members but only about 10-15 contributing at most.

That might be a tad difficult to grow the forum :lol:

You have to decide which way you want this forum to go !!!!

Methinks people are afraid to ask serious questions here.

Does anyone know where Celtic rambler went ?

He hasn't gone anywhere, been rambling, been earning a crust and currently doing nocturnal DIY.

La Direction dont have to do anything unless they want to, its their playground, does what it says on the tin, does what they wanted it to do, if it aint broke dont change it.

Although if someone comes along waving £2.8 million then they could probably make all the changes that they desired :lol: .

If the Chancer who hooked the venture capital company for the dough was instrumental in choosing the new forum name which he should now claim as his nickname then he is a really smart ex-pat and I admire him!

If we do get 2.8 million any member that's posted more than ten posts would get 100 euros each. With three exceptions.
hez would only get 50 euros as she is pro brexit :lol:
Chancer would get 75 euros as his position on brexit is not clear :D
Groot would get a one way ticket to Slough as he mentioned it the other day.

Why not join all of Chancers posts together (they tend to be quite long) and create a book or biography of Chancers life. :D

It could be the next Harry Potter book !!! Same sort of thing methinks. :lol:

That's actually quite funny without being too offensive. I think. I suppose it's for Chancer to decide. In the meantime IAG, you could do a sequel to Edward Lear's well known work.

Decide whether to report the post or to write the book?

I started the book several years ago but got writers block after the title.

Chancers Charter, the survival guide for duckers and divers in France.

Have you read any George East books Groot? They would be right up your street, I can send you my collection if you like, I re-read one recently and said to myself did I really read this drivel and enjoy it and want to buy the next one :oops:

Its a window into how life was in the halycon days, how you could wrire drivel promoting a dream whilst living the reality on the money that mugs like me paid for the books.

Seriously you would love them and I am serious about sending them, someone else should get some perverted pleasure out of them before they go to landfill.

I'll send them to a B.P. if you want.
