IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
« on: April 01, 2021, 08:54:32 AM »
The management of this forum has decided to relegate its back-office services to Popular Internet Service Solutions.

As a result of an extensive audit and many consultations, it has been decided that a membership fee of R89 per month, will be levied to be a regular member of this forum. Guests will no longer be able to access this site. New members have to be introduced and vouched for, by existing paid up members.

It has also been decided that classified adverts for regular members will no longer be hosted for free on this site. Adverts will only be open for Club Privé members.
Regular membership can be upgraded to Club Privé membership by introducing at least 12 members per annum, whose membership must be paid in full for 12 months.
This service will back-dated to 31st of March 2020 and therefore all sellers on record will be invoiced accordingly. Non-payment of backdated fees will result in the deletion of your account.

In view of the above, we are giving members the opportunity to respond and raise their concerns before this decision is implemented.

Well the Sun newspaper in the UK has a silly one on their website - the release of an inquiry report that says there is no racism in the UK.  Or was it the Harry and Megan getting married by the Archbishop of Canterbury dressed as Elvis?

This announcement was supposed to go out yesterday to coincide with for forum's financial year. Unfortunately, due to work commitments, I was not able to post this yesterday.

Please post your concerns here. All responses will be taken into account before this is actioned. I will be happy to repost this post tomorrow being 02/04/2021. The closing date for comments is 30/04/2021.

Seeing another post from @Curlycat:blah:
I'd like to point out that I can read, so this:
Guests will no longer be able to access this site.
takes a bigger impact than this:
It has also been decided that classified adverts for regular members will no longer be hosted for free on this site.

Adding an additional surcharge on classifieds for wine coolers, freezers and fridges should also be considered, I think.

You could levy a fine for grossly misleading and downright dishonest cable posts

That would generate some income to be sure

Chris, we're actually busy compiling a demerits list, based on the number of times we've had to moderate member's who have misbehaved, thus causing unnecessary workload for the moderators. Each of these delinquents will be fined retro-actively according to the amount of grief they caused. Cable atrocities form a large part of this list.

The list is quite interesting so far!
