If I have to get a vendor's license for doing $1 box designs, I'm going to go nuts. I don't do it for the money. I mean seriously. Who in the hell does box designs for $1 and is in it for personal gain? I just try to help people out who are new and on a tight budget. I don't even make $40 a month from my box designs. You want to see my paypal history?

I mean what am I supposed to do. CACO did the same BS over there, don't be like ANT.

Buck is An^ honest straightforward guy. Is he seriously trying to get you to be a vendor? You don't OFFER your services openly.. You just have them there for people. People come to you.. People recommend you to others on their own accord. You're one of the few I respect on this site I rarely come to now because of all the changes. I vote no charge to buck. Otherwise. This is caco all over again.

Buck is a nice honest guy. Like he said he's not making a killing, and its not like he has a shop. It's a personal hobby he likes to do and he shouldnt be charged to do it.

why would you be charged for being a vendor??? technically you dont even have a business to be a vendor for. just another case of "THE MAN" sticking it to ya. sorry bro

IF it went that way I think it would be to protect vendors not to punish Buck. I don't see much of an issue with it, but if the rules follow suite with other sites with vendors then all adds in sigs and advertisement threads will be taken out. However, that does not mean you can not post it threads offering your services.

It's only $20 a month if you want to be a "vendor" and just advertize in your sig. The $40 if if you want your own forum, like Argent Audio and a couple others have chosen to do so. What ***** is that each vendor doesn't have a spot on the main forum page, like how you would on any other forum like SSA, SMD, etc...there's just a big "vendor forums" section that has each one inside there. IMO that really limits your visibility.

I agree about the setup for vendors, I would love to have my own forum area instead of a "sub forum" which can and will get cluttered.

yeah thats not right..your doing it to be nice ...i wouldnt worry about advertising though.. most people who are here know you and ram both do designs and recommend you guys when needed...

i do want to see more companies come here and maybe the talk about having their own section per company is a good idea if thats what it will take to make them happy and bring them in..

If vendors got their own forum area with a logo that would be visible on the main page, I'd be all over it. But at $40 a month, it's just not worth it for me to be hidden behind a sub-forum that can easily be overlooked.

First off, Goob went on vacation Thursday. Ive forgotten exactly when he's due back, but about a week iirc (Mike probably knows). This means any concrete answer on the subject is probably on hold until he returns.

Secondly, while I will be stating both sides of the argument here (imo), I want to make it clear that I not only understand and empathize with the position you are in Buck, but I want to say that I appreciate your efforts to basically offer an almost-free box design feature for the forum. Please dont lose sight of the fact that I understand your concern here when I also say that I can see Goob's possible difficult situation because of rolling out this vendor feature.

One of the large draws of having people/companies want to buy/use this feature is for the sig based advertising. If certain people are allowed to advertise for free, even if those people have nothing but good intentions, it would possibly make other people/companies think twice about paying for it. I think that's a legitimate and reasonable concern to have.

Im not saying that's what Goob will decide, I have no idea what he'll decide. Im just playing devil's advocate. I dont think it would be fair to get all whipped into a frenzy about it for the next week and be angry if Goob has to make a difficult decision (not talking about you specifically Buck). I guess for now the best thing would be to keep it out of your sig, and I will make a post in the moderator back room to get input from the other mods.

Sorry I can't be more help at this point Buck. I really dont know a lot about the new rules yet beyond what you guys probably read too. :crap:

Why not offer money to Buck to make free box designs on your forum? He works for cheap you know, seems to me that we should get the designs for free, that keeps people joining, Buck can get his designs out for free to help people which is what he wants to do, and you can pay Buck for his excellent services and all the hits he'll bring in. Not often you find someone like him....

I've been on vacation, is the reason for delay getting back on this. But, if you don't need a forum you can get the vendor account for $20/month, which allows you to advertise, just no forum.
