    The simple fact is there is no other single place you can get the information contained on this site, it has taken years to build up the Photos / records with 1000's of hours input & updating which takes place all of which is second to none, yes Facebook has 100's of fairground enthusiasts pages and if you put them all together you still would not have the records we have, We took the very difficult decision and by no means did we take it lightly, we knew that a few of our membership would not be happy but we are trying our very best to keep the Forum Running for everyone not just the few, making its a yearly subscription was the only way forward or we would have closed, its not a bluff we could have closed with the loss of all the records, and enjoyment this site brings, Members should all be very grateful that they had free access for so long and that was down to the loyal Forum supporters some of which paid the top rate of £20 for years, to keep it going, for years Our Founder had to pay out of his own pocket, and many of you just sat back and enjoyed this site for Free, well that is no longer an option, We know that the annual £10 Subscription is value for money, we pride ourselves that we operate a secure site without intrusive adds which none of us want, we don't share any info from this site as a result you don't Receive unsolicited mail,if you want all that go stick with Facebook, I bet most of you will spend £10 a month in McDonalds or Costa Coffee !! You can moan all you like but rest assured there is a Great Team of people who have taken on this challenge to keep this forum running all in our own time without complaint you would not believe the work involved in running this site, its vast but it has to be done and the last thing we needed was to worry about paying the bills this way we can concentrate on bring you a great site for everyone to enjoy This site is unique and very special and has enhanced many an enthusiasts Hobby for near on 20 years i ask you one question want would you do if it this site disappeared !!

    Really makes me laugh (or grimace should I say) when the Facebook argument pops up its head. Let's get something clear shall we, this site is NOT a second fiddle competitor to Facebook. They are two completely different things so stop comparing something that shouldn't be compared. This site operates with rules and encourages people to behave like civilised humans. Facebook is a free for all where anything goes, rumour included. Does Facebook have a comprehensive rides list? No. Does it have everything centred in one place with a system to prevent non enthusiasts posting troll like comments and starting trouble? No. It is a pathetic gadget for people to feel wanted and whilst people here slag off the team for asking for contributions to keep things moving, how many of them couldn't care less about what is happening to their personal data and security on Facebook? They will defend the crooked operations of that site because they would rather accept the failings than lose their "toy". Yet the team ask for money to sustain the site and pay the bills and they are accused of being unreasonable! Time to get things in perspective. And before im mobbed for daring to speak against the dearly beloved Facebook I have heard all the counter arguments before so save your energy. Mr Zuckerberg is a man that will never be harvesting my data at the expense of me living a fake celebrity tell all lifestyle.

    I don't have a functioning PayPal account as I had problems with it using Ebay and I don't think I've used it in over a decade. I think I'm still registered but I can't remember my username and passport. I could pay by cheque but it would be far, far easier to pay with my credit/debit card, which seems to be the future. Will this be a payment option soon?

    Jonathan please read this it will explain why you can't access the rides list.... All The Fun Of The Fair is primarily a message forum. However, over the years it has grown into so much more. We have A Rides List with details and photos of over 3500 UK Rides, A Transport List, Funfair Reports Archive and loads more. As far as I am aware, the information we provide is unique online. Providing adequate hosting and storage requires funding which I am unable to finance solely on my own. Fortunately Forum Supporter donations are currently covering our costs - however this assumes that our hosting/storage bill doesn't go any higher and supporter numbers don't drop. Forum Supporters have been discussed in the forum recently and this has had a positive effect and numbers are up - we are secure, for the time being at least. I don't however want to be complacent and I've been discussing with the Forum Panel various methods of encouraging donations. One suggestion was to look at the benefits of donation (apart from the obvious one of keeping this unique resource available!). And I have now enhanced the benefits available to forum supporters (please see http://www.fun-fairs.co.uk/supporter-benefits/ for details) Also discussed was making the Forum "Member Only", that is only accessible to those who do contribute financially. For various reasons, I don't want to implement this. However, if push comes to shove and the level of donations drops below our hosting and storage bills I WILL reconsider this option. Another option discussed was restricting access to our biggest and most used feature - The Rides List - to paid subscriber only. I can see merit in this idea, but I still have reservations, primarily that the list was compiled and the information and photos supplied by a mixture of supporters and non-supporters and to exclude those who contributed to its success would be grossly unfair. I believe that it is important to balance who has access to the Rides List with those who have contributed to make it the success it is. I hope that I have achieved this with the following change in policy. Having considered all the advantages and disadvantages I have decided that access to the Rides List will eventually be restricted to Forum Supporters only, but this won't be done until it is necessary. I believe that by phasing in this restriction it will be fairer and I won't have to restrict access anymore than is necessary to achieve our aims. Phase 1 - Has been completed. All new members to the forum will have unlimited access to all of the site except the Rides List - if they wish to access this additional feature they will need to support the forum financially (and with our lowest donation of just 10p a week it can hardly be described as expensive!) Phase 2 - Is proving more difficult than I anticipated. If a member doesn't financially support the forum and has never contributed with content (that is has never posted) they will not be able to access the Rides List. I had a plugin to identify and move these members automatically, but it was unreliable, moving members who didn't fit the criteria. This is now a manual process and will take some time to complete. Phase 3 - On 1st January 2018, the Rides List will further be restricted to the following: Forum Supporters Members who have contributed to the Rides List Members who submit Funfair Reports The software is able to automatically give Supporters Rides List access, so there is no work to do on this aspect. However, there is no way for the software to identify Rides List or Funfair Report contributors, so these members will have to be given access to the Rides List Manually. If you are NOT a Forum Supporter, but have contributed to the Rides List or have submitted Funfair Reports I will have to manually give you access to the Rides List. Please drop me, @Bill Edwards or @Jamie Peters a PM indicating which Rides List Entry or Funfair Report you have contributed to and we will do the rest. I've announced this now so that I have time to allow all those members who should have access to be able to access the list when it's restricted in just over two months time. I hope that you understand why this change of policy has been thought necessary and hope that you feel as I do and the Forum Panel does, that by restricting access to Forum Supporters and Contributor's to The Rides List and Funfair reports that the policy is being implemented fairly. Many thanks for your continued support. Bill

So in the end, I deleted Charles Harris' Toyset with the intention of putting it on another post later. Then once I had deleted it, I noticed it was then not adding Clarke McKean's Toyset, and it would not edit it , so I deleted that too which has now made David Guest's Toyset not add. What's going on??? AArrgghh!!!
