    Not quite sure from your answer if you're on shared hosting or not. Sounds like it.

    I've been satisfied with Joomla. My sites are still in 1.5.xx I haven't bumped them to 2.5 yet because it's a bit more involved than just updating to the next version of 1.5 If/when I do, that should help with the biggest hurdle of running a Joomla site which was updating. 2.5 is more automated like WP, which is cool.

    Is the PSP.eu site in your sig actually yours? It looks like it's running Social Engine for it's social networking area. Based on that setup, it looks like spam will be a universal issue no matter which solution I settle on. Man, I hate spam.

    Oh well. Back to whatever it is I'm doing. :)
    Hi Surfer,

    Thanks for you kind comment on the London site and for sending me the links to your sites, yes the path2prosperity.eu is mine and yes you are right it gets loads of spam, its a pity you can't eat this type of spam I used to like spam egg and chips when I was a lad.

    Kind Regards

    Good Idea GOF, I used the auto effword as well, so I will have to emulate you.

    I am really looking forward to using a traffic exchange where I can sell my products and services knowing that it runs in well policed cyberspace communities. One of the first things which I will recommend when I walk round places like Richmond, Wimbledon and Twickenham will be a good British web host so we must get my .co site up and running.

    A new generation of traffic exchanges is certainly being discussed and deveolped. You can add your comments in the RS threads where this subject has been raised. I f you read my traffic exchanges web page lin my RS sig files, you will see that there are people who want this to come sooner rather than later.

    The London sites are superlative GOF. I think we need to laugh BoggyBoy's attemp to provide escorts in London into the ground. If RS members would like an escort to the places which are highlighted on the site, I will gladly be his or her escort. I have an OAP free travel card so a companion would not have to get out a wallet to pay my fares round town.

    "scratchy" found Boggy Boy's escort link and I was tempted to register as a London escort. He said he could provide girls but I am still a girl to some older people.

    I REALLY THINK YOU HAVE EXCELLED YOURSELF THERE GOF. BoggyBoy's escort service would be a fantastic cartoon version of the sights of London

    I think your idea about a traffic exchange seems to be about as popular as a fart in a spacesuit? I was thinking of setting one up but I have learned from experience that you can take a horse to water but you can't make it drink, I can count the number of people who have joined my new social site on one hand "None" so I may as well take it down.

    Now you are being a grumpy old fart GOF. People here have been following breaking news about Bowdoin and Fred Mann's exploits. Also the news that Dave Thornton has just joined our site needs to be digested before members are going to give consideration to sites selling goods and services.

    Please put the site up again as I had tried to join.

    Or too busy swatting up on the big breaking news. I followed Dave Thornton's story on WLD and I thought he may have departed this mortal coil as I heard no news of him for such a long time. That poor man and the hell he has been through. He has just joined us.

    Dave's Story

    PS. Please pass this news on to "oldcoot." His sight and health is poor, so if I contact him and you do too, he may get his publicity machinery moving to give Dave a helping hand. When the old coot musters his force, he gets heard!

    Re: New Friendly Social Network

    Another reason that members may not have liked the idea of your opening an autosurf, is that Fred Mann has just opened one for JustBeenPaid and that could put you under the microscope. We know that you ran a free autosurf and did not pay people rebates for watching ads but Eagle has made a post on another forum warning people about the folly of joining an autosurf and having one run here to advertise real products and services as opposed to paying money to people to watch ads for ponzi's and cons could give people reading MMG, TG or Adlandpro the idea that you were in the same league.

    Eagle made the following comment on a RS thread about the notorious Fred Mann's new autosurf, which meansin Fred's last ditch attempt to con money from his dying JustBeenPaid.

    Comment from Eagle about Fred Mann

    "Let's see, the government took down CEP, 12DP, PhoenixSurf, and ASD; and Megalido, adventures4U, and several other autosurfs ran with the money. And what does Fred want to do? He wants to add an autosurf to JBP. Talk about painting a bulls-eye on yourself."

    It would be a very inopportune time to have an autosurf owner here. That does not mean that thinking of how and where a new generation of traffic exchanges will be developed. As I stated in my web page mentioned in my sig files, there is a need for sellers to meet and sell to other sellers. Antique dealers run antique fairs to sell to other dealers (sellers) and the public. TEs make sense but for the moment it is a sector of cyberspace which is distintly the darker shad of grey. When the new generation come out things will change. I would like to see that sector of cyberspace cleaned up and I would be delited to see you try a prototype.

    Hi P2P,

    Sorry its just that some days are worse than others so I get grumpy, I haven't been following the latest RS news as I don't profess to be a scam buster I just want to know if any are before I join them. I have had look at some traffic exchange scripts but the good ones are not cheap so it will have to wait unless someone from the RS Membership wants to buy one?

    If they did I would host it free of charge for the first year and then just $4.99 a month.

    The MyBuddy site is online, if you have difficulty joining refresh the page before you fill in your info.

    Kind Regards

    Hi P2P,

    I will have another look in my scripts shed to see if I can find one that could be used as a traffic exchange, but I am not too hopeful as PHP has now been upgraded so a lot of my scripts don't work properly, if I find one that works ok I will put it online for you to test out.

    Kind Regards

    So do I. One day my doctor asked me how I felt and I told him the truth. I said that I felt "pissed off with impecuniosity." Fortunately he saw the joke.

    Don't be an impatient old fart GOF.

    You're going to have to grow your community just like you grow any other site out there. Marketing, SEO, continuous TLC, content creation, etc.

    RS is not the ideal community from which to draw users. At least, the core membership isn't. I could be wrong, but I don't think most of the leaders and admin here will be all that interested in joining a business/marketing community such as yours.

    It's nothing that you should take personally.

    You might pull some visitors from here that are researching various companies, but those odds are also small since you aren't a highly active/visible member here in the scam discussion threads.

    What is the goal/purpose of your community?

    We love all our members. I am just too swamped to get involved anywhere else at the moment. Don Holbrook is suing half the planet including me and definitely has my full attention because of it.

    Sorry to hear you are still fighting that battle. Anyway RS members can help? (excluding money, unless we could make an appeal on FB as in Bus Monitor) At least that is for me, it seems there is never enough to go around to meet needs.

    GOF use Facebook to notify all your friends. Not sure how you feel about Georgios P. but he might join. I can give a link on my wall also if that will help. Let me know.

    I agree with a lot of points here "surfer." We have to grow our communities. I have groyn mine in my own back yard because most of my marketing is done off line. GOF has followers who use his web hosting services. His and my communities are very different but my followers are very reluctant to buy or sell online because they are aware of the huge percentage of scams with online network marketing.

    I tell my people that they can sell or buy products and services online from traders who have a presence in RS. As our main objective here is to bring down scammers and scams we need to be active in scam disscussion threads.

    I have said it time and time again. If you buy from a trader on a large station in London you are unlikely to be ripped off as the stations are well policed. If you buy or sell from a trader with a presence on RS, you are also unlikely to be ripped off. People whom I plan to introduce to RS will be experienced local trades people who will not swallow "Internet Marketing." They will be people who know their own markets and come here to learn to expand them.

    Hi P2P,

    You are the master of the english language, I feel much better today as I found some scripts the other day and have now put one online as a business directory at MyBuddy.us/BusinessDirectory if you have time please have a look and let me know what you think?

    Hi Surfer,

    Thanks for your helpful comments and I do understand that RS is probably not the best way to recruit members for my website, but I did have a good response form RS members to my original exadlanders forum.

    I am not very active here at RS because I am not a scam buster just a scam watcher as I don't want to get involved in anything I may regret later.

    The main goal/purpose of my community is to provide a website that is useful to members and is free from bullies and trolls.

    I have also added to the site by including a Business Listing Directory and comes with the features below:
    Favorites management Secure payment gateway integration
    Support for contact list, block list Full Internal Messaging system
    Preconfigured for paypal, and offline payments WYSIWYG editor for ad posting
    Direct selling through paypal for sellers Seller Stores
    Support for featured, highlights and gallery featured Rotation Banner Ads System








    If you have time please check it out at MyBuddy.us/BusinessDirectory

    Kind Regards

    Hi Scratchy,

    I don't use facebook all that often, Georgios P is an ok guy but he tends to try and take over anything he joins so I am not too bothered if he joins or not, but a link on your wall would be fine.

    Thanks

    I have joined your community and commented on the business ideas thread. I have invited a local very talented interior designer from Twickenham to join the community and I hope that she accepts the invitation.

    Would "Do Not Mess with Soapboxmum" stickers sell in Twickenham? I think they would sell for 2 a sticker at International rugby matches.

    If you, Sara or SBM can produce a design that appeals, we could have a product and a market. If Angela could earn a bit of commission, she may be prepared to sell them in her shop at Twickenham.

    Re: New Friendly Social Network

    Hi GOF,

    We have had a few ideas as to what you could sell, which RS members might buy and one thing was sheet music as it can be delivered to a person's computer more cheaply than snail mail and it makes great Chrismas presents

    You would need some good advice on copyright law and I am sure that people here would help. As Gilbert and Sullivan is out of copyright some of their scores would be very easy to reproduce online. It is hard to get a G&S tune off the brain but it is the words that are the real genius and some wit could do a parody which you could sell.

    You said that Barbara could sing. It would be great for you to test her voice online? Would she do a rendering of. "Ive Got a little List" or "Poor Little Buttercup I?" We could nominate some RS memmbers for role play. How about nominating "okosh" as "The Lord High Executioner?"

    "LRM" and "okosh may may like this version

    I've got a little list.

    Not sure "whip." I started reading one of the books and decided that I was not interested because, I am a Terry Pratchett fan and I found the character's so bland after Pratchett's witches and wizards,

    However Twickenham is well known as a world famous rugby club and they host all the crack teams from the Southern Hemisphere like "The All Blacks."

    When there are big matches, people with a fair bit of money to spend crowd the streets and you can sell them any old thing that sounds like a bit of fun.
