[quote="captainash"]Yep, making the forum public again. It’s the only way to encourage people back.
I can see both sides of the argument in view of a paid membership to be honest. There're a couple of things i'd like to mention. Firstly when i was in one of my previous clubs, membership was free to a point, but if you wanted any tech info or to buy and/or sell parts, you had to pay for a 'full membership' to gain access to said section. I also think that due to the age of our cars now that most of the 'tech info' is already out there for people to dig out for free anyway. Just re Ash's quote above, i'm 200% behind encouraging people to join and rejoin the forum, but i don't think its a case of encouraging them back, is it not more of a case that our cars are simply becoming that scarce now that there's simply not that many owners of 6's and Rallye's out there to join? 500 Rallye's guys!! and that was late 90's, god knows how many are left, 6's i have no idea on either but you get my train of thought, there's simply not enough cars left out there to increase membership significantly. I'm all for the forum, ok its not the busiest place on earth but christ there's some VERY VERY good people associated with it and i know my car wouldn't be anywhere near where it is without it. Thankfully looks like it'll be saved by what i can see on here and massive thanks to those behind the scenes
. When all is sorted i'd still like to pay a contribution.
