    What about a computer designed ATFOTF logo of the type which could be bought and ironed onto members own polo shirts.

    Thanks Harry. That's a fair comment I never thought of it like that, would be easier to add them as the rides as needed.

    If any modeller would like to tell us what type of machine they want adding to that list, I'm sure we could oblige. It would seem unnecessary listing every type of ride when its unlikely they will all get used though.

    In the fairground modelling forum there is a rides list where members can list their models much like the real rides list. The list only covers certain ride types, would it be possible to have all machine types included the same as the real rides list? Hopefully this will encourage more of the modellers amongst us to list the rides they have. Thanks

    Links Directory

    There are a number of issues with the Links Directory: It isn't working correctly. To fix these issues we will have to upgrade the Links Software to the latest version. As support has run out for this product, this will involve a new purchase. There is no guarantee that the new purchase and upgrade will fix the problem, but we're confident that the purchase and support would fix the issue though There has been virtually no checking of the existing links and we are aware that there are dead links within the directory It is woefully underused. One link checked had been viewed just 40 times in two years Given the above The Team feel it isn't worth the cost, time and effort to bring the Links back to a usable state. We apologise to the members who did submit links and made use of the Directory.

    That's not a rant, nor is it long winded. I bet there's an awful lot of members, including me, who will read it with pleasure. ☺️

    Criticism Of ATFOTF

    as a platinum supporter i did not pay to have it put under my name, i paid because i wanted too, because i felt bill had a lot on his plate regarding cost of running the site and should not have to pay the cost on his own for my enjoyment, this is not youtube, facebook etc that earn vast amounts of money from advertising to keep it going, this is a unique site so will not attract advertisers due to the traffic, i for one will not be paying £5 or £10 when my subscription runs out, i will be upping my subs. i'm not a business man i'm just a normal working guy (bin lorry driver, dustman) so live from week to week, and yes i know not everyone can't afford it so hopefully my little bit extra might offset somebody else's subs, i have enjoyed this site from day one and hope to till i'm kicking the daisies up, i might not be a big contributor regarding posts but trust me i get immense pleasure from other contributors regards photos, videos, etc, following on from bill is a big ask and so far the team are doing a great job in my humble opinion, well that's my rant over and sorry its a bit long winded but i had to get it off my chest.

    Criticism Of ATFOTF

    I think the overwhelming majority on this forum, like most others are silent. From the vocal minority, a majority told Peter, and to a lesser degree myself to leave it alone and stop being difficult. The original question was not answered to reasonable standard other than 'this is how it is, take it or leave it'. I think the outcome of all of that has been positive. Bill stepped down and can now hopefully enjoy life on here and his hobby. A team has taken over with a fresh outlook and will run it democratically among themselves taking into account input from members. Bill didn't get it right all the time, neither will The Team. They'll have more chance as they are a group and can share the burden of what goes into running this forum. I think changes have been made for the better, and perpetuating this argument about money is getting us nowhere. We all have views, we've all aired them. Things are changing on here, lets see how it goes. I support the new group in charge and hope they enjoy success in their new venture of trying to keep us all in order. A thankless task!

    @lego skid Peter did say 'In his opinion' as he doesn't look at those forums. We did ask for everyone's views and thoughts after all.

    Sorry to bother you, but the Links Directory seems to have vanished. I have tried searching without success. Please can you help. Many thanks. Regards.

    Criticism Of ATFOTF

    actually you asked several times in relation to having a £5 levy to access the rides list despite also saying you had no wish to view it and went on to ask several times for a break down of where the money was going as well, THEN, changed to asking several times about a now £10 proposed levy for being on the forum at all after bill had enough of the furore around running it and the finance aspect, majority? poll? " quoted from my previous reply, the overwhelming majority who replied"

    Criticism Of ATFOTF

    The fact that I asked again so soon, was due to the mandatory payment the new Team wanted from the members. That's a totally different situation in itself. I'm very happy with the fact that they did change their views on this one. And how do you know the majority agrees? Has there been a poll on this? I don't know. But I do know one thing: the majority usually stays silent. As I said before: what one guy thinks is important, isn't for another one...
