Actually I think is 33 but it takes one second to drop the paint brush on the floor when he is done.

Will the rewards point program be altered in any way ? (Says he nearing 4,000 of 'em)

And as a side comment from one who has been here a for a few months and posted a few comments here and there, WOW, these bulletin boards must be a gold mine. How many times can something like PT be sold for a profit ? I mean, it ain't an NFL franchise......

Ohh by the way a good way to weed out all these DIY's is to wait a couple months after they registered before they can log in and use the forum.

Sometimes I feel like I'm living in and doing the work to a rental home that keeps getting flipped .

Just for kicks, I checked out 3 of the more popular website worth calculators online. Generally I don't consider any of these reliable in any way, but the estimated cost of this forum ranges from $11k up to $42.6k.

Maybe if we all put our rewards points together...? Make Steve Richards the overseeing body?

It happens.

I've been here since '08 and consider that length of time not the norm for these environments.

It's been a good ride

Yeah. So I guess now we'll have premium memberships and content available for only those who decide to pay.

which is something I believe I threw out MONTHS ago for consideration to avoid the damn ads.

It was determined that no one would pay and the site would crap out

I swear I've never even seen the ads on this forum since I joined. Other than when people have taken screen shots and posted them. Adblockerplus or whatever it's called. Took less than a minute to install.

I have a feeling we will see ads that beat those scrubbers. I already have been seeing words like "advertizement" appear in the blank spaces.

It's like any war. One side invents the newest weapon, other side invents a defense, and back and forth it goes. Iron Clads were virtually unsinkable during the Civil War. That didn't last long.

I actually don't mind paying. I'm a silver contributor on another forum, I pay $50 yearly. nobody needs to pay anything, there is no ads, no rewards, badges, no nothing.

Its called a donation and who ever loves the place decides if they want to donate or not. I think is better to have something like that.

Yep, that just reminded me that I have seen the ads. I dl'd the app for my Nexus 7 in the summer at one point. Haven't used the app since because of the ads.

Barely use the tablet at all for that matter. Wasn't my most well thought out purchase, just got it in my head that I wanted one and crashed on towards the goal from there.
