Is there a "For Sale/Trade" section? So people can BUY AN AD? smile

For now the buy/sell classifieds are the classifieds on TheBeachcats.com here.
http://www.thebeachcats.com/classifieds/

And you don't even have to pay to place an ad there right now.

To welcome all the Catsailor.com regulars I've set all the ads to the low price of FREE during March. (regular $10 for boats and $5 for parts)

So try them out, clear out those extra boats and parts lying around.

And I haven't had time to deal with it yet, but I will be looking for business sponsors and banner advertisers for both sites.

Right now I only have an adrate sheet for TheBeachcats.com, see it here.

Welcome back and thanks very much for all your help last week. I haven't been able to figure out how to connect you back with your old posts, but it might be possible.

Short answer: I am willing to cut my nose off to spite my face.
Long answer: I had issues with this website's SPAM policy (continuing to spam me despite repeated attempts to unsubscribe). This is my profession (email marketing and dev), I take it (a little too) seriously.

After all communications and passive methods failed, I took a stand and insisted he remove my account

Glad to help (and save the wealth of knowledge this site has)!
Don't forget i want 1/2 the profits !!! (jk)

Don't worry or work too hard about connecting my old posts, I have an aggressive plan to regain TOP POSTER status in 4 weeks time - Anyone need a Cheap Jersey? I started a company you may have seen on this site ... grin

As you revamp the forum, are you planning to give some attribution to Rick White, as the originator of the forum?

It could be called "Rick White's Catamaran Sailor." (Sorta like Dave Clark's Rockin' Eve.) Or maybe a history page about Rick? Other ideas, folks?

Please let there still be room in a a dark corner for non sailing discussions, funny facts etc. (no advertisement).

Like the "test" thread.

Otherwise I would miss these moments of excitement and wondering about the world outside sailing.
Which is observed by and recorded by sailors

Yes, I have in mind naming the main general sailing forum something like
Rick White Memorial Forum

Although that sounds too formal and kind of sad.

I'll take suggestions on that.

Maybe we can have a poll when the dust settles, having some trouble getting the site moved because of several really large topics that go back years and contain all kinds of (bad) html. (I'm looking at you test forum) ;-)

Yes, Since you asked so nicely (and made a major cash donation smile )

Like the "test" thread.

I'm running into a problem with the really gigantic topics, might have to lock some of them and let new ones be started in the "Politics Religion, and Trolling" forum.

How about calling it, "Rick White's Racing Forum" with a short bio of Rick stuck to the top post for a general forum, then all the different racing class forums under that?

It's under the "Politics, Religion and Trolling" thread. Enjoy!

Yes, the "test" thread has some real gems in it. The "Drill" and "Media" threads... not so much.

Maybe there's folks out there with the expertise to answer, but could this forum be set up as a 501(c)(3) in order to help generate donations (as this would be a tax-deduction for USA folk)?

not that it matters much in my case, but some daddy-warbucks type (Ding) may see the benefit when dropping those large steamer trunks of cash at your door.

.

Prefaced by IANAL,

I've considered this over the years with TheBeachcats.com but having been involved in a number of non-profits, you need to be bigger than beachcat sailing for it to help. People are going to help or they aren't. Now if you are big enough to get corporate donations, they do favor registered non-profits for the tax and publicity factors.
