Seriously, this place is just plainly dull. I belong to a " Watch" forum. A forum for those with an interest in watches, it isn't elite, Casio and Seiko, PP to Cartier. The motoring section is very strong, we have owners of everything from genuine super cars to Fiestas. Nobody seems to adopt attitudes. One guy is restoring a Caterham7, every week he posts really interesting progress reports. Another iin Holland restores some very exotic machinery, his detailed progress reports make fascinating reading. Motor bikes feature hugely, both in the motoring section and the for sale dept, I have often been tempted. The photographic section is well supported, real advice freely given. At the moment we have a " Street Photography" section going. The standard of submissions make the average seen here abysmal. A very popular section is the for sale facility. At the moment the items include three different Porsche, a couple of Mercedes, a fistful of BMWs, maybe forty watches, from a broken Casio to a £19,500 PP. There are also a few cameras included a very nice Fuji X100T outfit, complete with the two lenses, spare batteries etc etc, I think it's about £700. And a Leica Monochrome, that I am trying to ignore.Some Armani jeans, a Barbour jacket and a rather expensive air rifle etc etc. Shoes are also a subject of great debate as are dogs. I think the doggie thread started by yours truly has reached the 1000replies. The Sale section is free to established members and operates very successfully on trust built up,over time. Although free the website provider does operate a charity via Virgin. I think in the last year we raised over £10,000. One reason the sale section works so well is that members are vetted. Vetted on length of time and number of posts . I was wondering just why my "Watch" forum can be so successful whereas this one just seems to drag on and on. A bit like the shocking cold I can't shake off.
