Advertisers, they don't seem to get it.

What can the Admins do to help, any requests for changes, updates, etc.

Advertisers, they don't seem to get it.

Post by weeksy »

Had another mail today offering money to buy advertising space on the forum. It actually makes me happy that someone out there is aware of our little world and existence.

Bloke a couple of weeks ago got proper stroppy when I said no to him, rambling on about all they can offer us.

No thanks. Is apparently the wrong reply. Lol.

If they are cold calling you it's probably a rip off anyway, I usually don't reply to those emails at work as it just seems to encourage them.

Today's mail was an offer to buy the forum itself.

As you'd expect, I didn't even entertain the mail and instantly deleted it. I would be curious to know the value, if any.

Don't worry, I got your back gang.

That'd be quite funny. But in the moves we've lost a fair few groups over the years and even though we have a core now, I wouldn't like to lose it.
