    Haha, yeah vBulletin is a ***** when it comes to the license. I'm assuming you sprung for the pro setup and install too, which easily puts your initial costs between $400 and $500.

    Beyond that though, we only serve up 2100 or so unique visitors a month on BBS software, the bandwidth overhead shouldn't be too bad. If you're getting gouged Dave, shoot me a PM and I'll happily get you set up on something more affordable.

    Hey, there's no ads here. There's no picking between whether or not the vendors here are selling shyte. There is no stress for people who have a business to run, unless they are trying to advertise without paying.

    I have a business myself that I don't advertise here because I haven't paid. It's really simple--here you are just a member, until you pay the fee to be a vendor. Then you are a vendor, and get your own little corner and can do whatever regarding your business. Mr. Haas just posted some prop knife he made an a metorite knife because it is of interest and shows his skills. He does a WIP like every fortnight. He paid one time, and has a happy little vendor life.

    Personally, I am happy WIP are allowed, since that is one of the great things about this site, but I do prefer that the rules lean on justice over mercy. A "hobby" can turn into a year long backorder in not so long. IIRC, Fish was selling handles in like 20 minutes back in the day.

    Just out of curiosity, what does a vendor pay per year?

    Too bad I would have loved to read that post

    I don't see the problem. If DH is taking money for work, then posting a thread showing said work, this is advertising. You don't have to come out and say "send me your knife!" for it to be advertising. Imagine one of the chef's here posting a bunch of videos of food for their restaurant, telling us how great his specials are now and mention that he's open for business but never out and out saying "Come eat here!". It would still be advertising. Not exactly the same thing, but close enough.

    I love DH work, and I love his WIP threads, but if he is taking work from other forum members and posting the results of said work, it's advertising. I hope that DH isn't hurt by this and I hope that he decides to becoming a supporting vendor... I think it would be great!

    If this site is headed in the wrong direction it's because of people like yourself pushing it that way. Case in point - you post on another site that you won't ever post here again yet days later you show here up to sell your knives. What's that about? Another user....
    To be honest I thought I'd hang around long enough to sell some knives. But that just doesn't seem right. So I won't.

    Rather than make a stir I'll go silently into the night.

    I do wish you the best. I truely believe your motives are genuine.

    There must be something that is not generally known, because this makes no sense to me.

    Apparently, not the depth of participation some here expected.
