I think we all need to take a breath here; yes, it's annoying and frustrating when people join just to flick an instrument on but the other side of that coin is we get first crack at it.

I mean, if someone is selling and no-one is interested in his wares, we just ignore the post, do we not?! Barry and I can go through and clear out non-active members in a heartbeat, so that's not a problem, either...

I reckon we're about due for a clean up as well... Smile

Unfortunately, not possible. You're either a member or a guest. We'd (Admin/Mod) have to physically remove the bugger to get rid.

i'm not much of a software guy, just my opinion here....
somebody like Tom Presley is a guest
Joe-anybody-hitandrun-buy-my-stuff-guy is a user
i don't know how to make a computer tell the difference

but anyway...

it doesn't bother me when somebody becomes a member just to try to flog off an unwanted, overpriced something, i find it amusing actually.
especially the bad pics!
and don't forget the sob stories of 'big bad wifey making me get rid of my toys' and other such nonsense. Roll on Floor Laff


this place is like a cafe where you can watch people come and go.
you can just listen or you can pick up along with any conversation.
it doesn't bother me to let anybody drop in, for any reason

i only just hope for more participation from more people

I understand what you mean Mike, but again, you are either a guest or a member. And Tom is a member, not a guest. Wink

I fully agree. And haven't several westones actually been sold this way?

Maybe a compulsory first post in the "introduce yourself" thread might help to deter chancers and keep the serious sellers (not the "my wife blahblah.. so now I'm selling for way more than it's actually worth" type) and future long-term members?

Just an idea.

Is there anyway to have a probation period where the for sale section is off limit to new comers for so many weeks or posts posted ??
I know i'm not a reg poster or anything but even i've noticed a lot of these sob story selllers poping on now because there wife made them do it....
It may reads like big brother controling everything but it might stop some of this ..
But then again it might not....

It's happens on every forum with people trying to make a fast coin on gear...
It's down to all of us really as we all have a love for Westones an other uncle mat guitars..
At the same time though how many of us have a guitar were looking out for????
We would if the price was right go for....
I know if a Raider 1 in the black to silver came up for sale I'd be very much out of pocket...
Then again if it was priced to high or being sold with keyword spam with no haggling option I'd just walk away..
It's only worth what you can or what you want to pay...
Not what the last one went for on evilbay...

Maybe the 1000 member should buy us all the Westone guitar of our choosing... Razz
Or we clump in an give them a guitar pick......

I was a member of a Westone Forum back in like 2005 or 2006, then drifted away, sold my Westones, dropped out...

Then a cheap Aria Pro II made me think about Westones again, and a cheap Corsair dragged me back in.

I'm enjoying my Westones much more the 2nd time around.

Once you've been bit, there ain't no going back, eh!! Nice to see you back again!!

Well, I gotta be clear: I haven't been without a Westone since late 2010, almost 2 years now. I've been active off and on on this board since then.

But my original participation and later absence was from 2007 to 2010 or so. And I remember meeting Penny, but I'm not 100% certain it was *this* board. Wasn't "Raven" the original site provider? When he decided to shut down the site, I was one of the people who volunteered to take all the files, but he already had people willing, and I think this site is the result of one of those generous people.

Polly, perhaps? She's now doing things with horses, and Dreamraven still sticks his head around the corner every now and then, just to see what's going on; otherwise pretty much the same crew!

Don; you're ugly as; I just haven't got around to "The Cull" yet....
