There are several reasons. However, first and foremost, it is to offer those who help with funding a bit extra. I think virtually every forum system which opens its gates to the public that needs funding has a similar arrangement. For example, from memory, Pepipoo has "Bad boys and girlz".

There are other reasons too - some of which are for members only to know :twisted:

It would be great to welcome you as a member. If it helps to overcome the conundrum, we will not have you as a member until you've persuaded us that it's worth our while to do so by accepting your membership fee ;-)

Join up HERE.

Seriously - this campaign and site needs all the support it can get, mate. And you never know, you might like what you discover in Members Only ;-)

You won't be deleted - unless you want to be.

People come.. people go..

I hope you enjoyed your time here.

If your reason for loss of interest is something we've done.. or not done... I would be most grateful if you would let me know, be it here or by PM.

The site and staff I have no complaints, I just get frustrated with people more than anything, I think too many regulars have a different view as to what I personally percieve this site to be about, I refer you to the site name :D I have carefully read through lots of threads in here and frankly there are too many focused on anything but safety issues, there are threads for general and specifics and thats great but all too often there are too many people entering a posted topic and raising their own profile and agenda openly or covertly whenever they can. Im in here to see if I can help anyone or to input on safety topics in the hope that it may help someone as well as seeking positive ways to address and do something about Driving/Drivers , an area I firmly believe is appalling on these Islands in particular.I may stay around but at the moment dont be surprised if I dont but no offence to your site and staff.

Thank you for taking the time to reply.

I hope you do stay. I learn each day from something, somewhere. Often it is from here - and often what I learn is esoteric and only fits into place at some later stage. I hope you take away some good too, irrespective of whether you remain.

Separating the wheat from the chaff is for me all the more pleasurable. I've learned to do so, and enjoy doing so, precisely because if I get riled by it (be it here or anywhere) my life becomes unnecessarily fractious.
