Wouldn't we have to call the RSPCA if you did that?

The GTI isn't just a machine. It's very much a living, breathing thing.

If it must be done, then the suggestion of a £1 per "For Sale" item listing is a good and fair one, in my opinion.  :happy2:


sorry have to disagree with you redrobin, i think a token gesture of maybe £10 or £20 per year would be more than fair then maybe £1 per listed for sale item if needed, we all save a lot of money on this site so i think most people would be ok with it

apologies rr i posted my comment before reading all your replies, it is a good point with regards to newbies coming in and seing the £10 or so charge, they would prob not join as you say, maybe something like a 3 month trial then if you want to stay then a token fee per annum charge or up to £20 or so would be the best bet, topped with maybe a £1 charge or so for listing an item for sale,,, in this day and age i think these charges are fine, i mean who is going to come in and love this site then turn round and say i aint gonna pay £20 a year or so - nobody i would think - , lets give the admin team - new or old - something to work with here, if they turn a small profit then great, but if we dont then it may only be a matter of time before we are full of advertisements to deal with dont you think.
£20 - lets do it possible new admin team

....That's a good idea - It would achieve the same and doubtless be much easier to manage for both this site's Admin team and for the sellers.  :happy2:

However, the Admin team have to find a replacement for SteveP first. Without a public announcement, we don't know when this will happen - The changover is likely to be seamless apart from the possibility of an interruption to change servers.

Time to bring this up to date.

I haven't had much time to follow up some of the enquires from possible new Admins, but have today replied to the people who have come forward so far that myself and the other mods felt are the best fit so far.

My change of job has now been completed so it's more important than ever for me to move away from the Admin role of the site, as I don't want it to be seen as a conflict of interests for me, the site or my new company.

As with before if you or know of someone that has some of the skills needed to run a forum then please get in touch ASAP  :happy2:
