    The Team has been made aware that a forum member has recently taken to Social Media making false allegations about this site and we felt it only fair that you hear "The Team's" side of things. The Team was recently asked anonymously through one Team Member to take down a member's photos from the Rides List. The member wished to remain anonymous, which put The Team at a disadvantage. We were told that the member wished to settle the matter amicably, but was "willing to go down the route of complaining to the web host about breach of copyright and issuing a take down notice". Our host has made it clear that any such complaint would lead to an "immediate termination of service". Given the potential to see the forum closed down The Team felt the safest course of action was to remove ALL of the member's photos. We were accused of profiteering - There will be NO PROFIT made WHATSOEVER from asking for donations to access the Rides List. We believe that given the possible number of donations we've pitched the donation at the correct level of £5 per year. This income will be used solely to cover hosting and storage costs. If there is any surplus at the end of the year we will either extend access for longer for those who have donated or will lower the donation amount for the following year. Whichever way we do it there will be NO PROFIT. All of The Team members have access to the accounts and can assure you that no profit will be made. It has also been said that someone new is at the helm following Bill's departure. This is NOT the case. There are ELEVEN EQUAL members of the Team. No one person is in overall charge. ALL decisions are discussed by the Team and voted on. NO ONE has a veto or more of a say. We have made each Team Member a Site Administrator so everyone is EQUAL and are determined that it WILL ALWAYS be a Team decision on every decision we make. When a member posts photos on All The Fun Of The Fair, the member retains copyright, but we reserve the right to use those photos posted on ANY part of the site. When you ask for photos to be deleted from one part of the site, but not others it clearly goes against our policy. In fairness to the member all his photos were deleted to remain within this policy. And frankly to ask for removal and at the same time continue posting photos is bizarre. It is also bizarre that another member who has slated our Rides List in response has recently asked how to access it. We are trying our level best to ensure that the forum is the best it can be for the maximum number of members. We accept we won't please everyone, but we've put a lot of effort into trying! Membership of the forum is purely voluntary. We welcome everyone who wants to be a member, whether they contribute financially or with content or not at all. However, we also don't feel it's fair for anyone to rubbish the forum on other sites with false allegations and still expect to be made welcome here. These comments are the latest in a line of negative posts the Team have had to put up with in the 28 days since we started running the Forum. Most of these negative comments and reactions (likes) to them all come from a very small minority of our Members. Sadly it's the same few Members who posted negative comments and reactions when Bill was running the Forum. We have tried to involve Members more during the short time we have been running things. We have looked at the Rules after complaints about the old set of Rules and have now produced a more slimline set. We have reduced the number of Forums by merging some in the hope that the Forum is easier to navigate. We know that we won't be able to change things overnight but we hope we are going in the right direction. It is now becoming apparent that these few Members posting these negative comments are not happy with whoever is running the Forum. What we can't understand is why are they still Members ? If we disliked something as much as they appear to dislike this Forum we wouldn't waste our time being a Member.
