Well this Titch issue seems to have raised a few concerns. Just to let everyone know I am not in the habit of banning people from the forum just for the fun of it. But let me also say there is a line of acceptable behavior and if crossed members will be banned.
One issue everyone keeps raising is the fact the forum has gotten somewhat quiet. Firstly we get numerous sign-ups everyday the fact they are not willing to participate means perhaps we (camping) needs to provide some more interactive sections i.e. questions and answer etc. and we will work on that. What we don't need however is someone saying that the forum is dead, not genuine and we are somehow abusing our members by using them to prop up our other sites and then actively recruiting people off of the forum.
Titch's comments were wrong and clearly done to get people off of the forum. This is not in the forum or its members interest and it is unacceptable. All we (camping) are trying to do is give you a place to enjoy and share info to make camping a fun and more informative site. Nothing more there is no conspiracy here, no hidden agenda we don't make money when you log on, we don't push ads in front of you to click and we don't have you in some dating site like Titch has stated...
An upgrade had to be done, I have no idea why people have decided we are the evil twin of Freddy Krueger for it but that is not something we can change. The forum is informative, as fun as you make it and is here for you to enjoy. If we focus on the positives and camping; people will be attracted to it.
Titch has only be banned he is welcome back if he contacts me and tells me what his issues are.
