    Default whats gannin on?

    folks seem to be dropping like flies to the 'banned virus' in these parts, any mention of the site that sells boats, or the other trawler pictures site on the net, and they disappear faster than Jonathon ross's audience

    just be nice to know what's gannin on

    Very few accounts have been banned Mark. There have been a handfull of persistent , now ex , members who have not accepted the site rules.

    We have had serious ongoing problems with **** for a long time and we are still no closer to resolving them , it is also a commercial website and we do not see why we should subsidise any commercial site with free advertising.



    The owners of the site have made it clear that no links will be allowed to either site and that is a simple rule. The people who have left or we were force to remove now have their own site and yet they seem determined to try to cause trouble on this site. It says far more about them than us I am afraid , they have their own site and should stay there. Those who wish to use both need not worry about staying here provided that , as is the case with all members , they abide by the sites rules.

    This site used to be good crack, until there came a point where it went mental and all these stupid rules came into place, everyone was here for the same reasons, the love of boats, fishing and for the good crack! its a shame that the site is being run into the ground!!! there is still alot of good photos and good folk on here, why not slacking off a bit and let everyone have a bit of crack! Lets get the site back to its former glory!!!

    The rules about the use of considerate English on the site , the one that caused so much disruption by a very small group of ex-members , is one that you will find on all successful websites. There is nothing worse than trying to understand a dialect of a language not your own. We still allow local language's in the life onboard gallery and in the local language forum.

    There are no more rules ( bar the barring of links to the 2 sites above ) than there were when this site was set up by Dave Leishman from all of the notes in the system. The ridiculous spamming of the site by a very small group of ex-members was the reason a lot of people stopped posting seeing all of the bogus accounts being banned. Had those accounts not been used there would not have been a problem and the actions of a handful of disruptive individuals says far far more about them than the rules of this site.

    Well said barry the site was much better when everyone could have a laugh the sites definateley went downhill to what it used to be . what happened to the pages of comments under pictures with everyone having a bit of banter ?? and no wonder everyone is loosing interest because effective contributers like wbeedie etc have been banned

    The site's definitively gone downhill over the last few months. I think it's generally down to the fear of being suspended/banned if you express your opinion - something which it doesn't mention in the rules. I've noticed that it's been alot quieter as well, perhaps down to several prominent members having their accounts suspended for doing little or no wrong - it hardly encourages them to come back does it?
