The most active web site on Clipper Marine over time is Trailer Sailors

Except a couple little problems.

One, posts older than three months, get the images washed out of them, and over a year, the whole post washes away.

Stuff in the refrigerator needs tossed every so often, not so with technical forums. This information never turns sour.

To wipe out images and information is almost criminal.

Now, they are erasing posts the day of, if it is not to their liking, and to their rules.

I am sorry, but that is not right.

Mark is a good solid citizen at those forums, and if he wants to give everyone a heads up he is looking to sell his boat, who is harmed.

Wallace sold me his CM32 Sloop from that forum, and no one died?

Hal alerted me he was still trying to sell his 32 Aft Cabin, and I purchased that one also.

Another daydreamer offered me his boat in that forum (if he even has a boat, or an island, or any of the other Internet only goings on he daydreams about)

Point is, a forum is made up of members building up the site. Mark is an important part of what Trailer Sailors is, and if he wants to mention his boat is for sale, he had better dammed well be able to mention that without having his posting stripped like it never was.

That is not as it should be and Mark, you are welcome to post here, including images,and video of your wonderful Clipper Marine.

Good luck selling your boat (I am tapped out - lol)

Good luck purchasing another boat!

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help. You are a friend to this forum, and any forum you post in, and we should all help one another get ahead.

For as long as there are sites like these there will always be a need for moderation.

When I first signed up for this site I noticed there were different forums for different topics. These are rules you have put in place for your site as you find necessary. I noted to you that there were posts out of place and you moved them. Had they been left, it would have made it difficult to find topics that are important to you. It also looks messy and will deter folks from wanting to post here.

So...moderation is necessary. The other board has it's own rules for it's own reasons. It's difficult for them to say that one person can sell their boat on the forum but another cannot sell porn sites. It's easier to just say no selling and we'll delete your post if you do.

Maybe you are being a little harsh. I'm not sure if it's because you look at them as competition now you have this site but it appears you have issues with the other board. Let it go before you raise you blood pressure over it.

I like your site. It really does make things easier to find and I think over time plenty of folks could see the benefits of this site over the other one. Try not to give your site any negative attention. It may backfire on you.

My issue with the other site is they dump material to save server space. I have. O plans to do such.

I say forget the other site then and move forward here in a Positive Focus. We here know the benefits of this forum. Others will see it too if things stay positive. Why drag stuff from there over here?

Hope everyone has a great Friday and gets a chance to do some sailing this week end. Very Happy
