Re: Forum & Database Update

I searched his name and his profile came up and under his name it says "Banned" and his last activity was 09/2012. Alex, can we have some info on this, please?

Re: Forum & Database Update

The reason that Waffle was banned is because he was posting adverts without being a paying advertiser.

Reasonable reason, and not much of a surprise as the forum needs money from retailers advertising.
I suspect it will get worse as the new owners have come into play.

Didn't know that about Waffle. However, I did have a little run in with him when I contacted him about advertising in the magazine.

Re: Forum & Database Update

I am actually creating a little forum, it's currently in the process of being made. It could be used as a refuge if things get bad here if you want. I won't post a link in case I get "done" for advertising but pm me if you're interested in being a member.

What happened Nathan? I'm very interested to know what Michaels response to that was...

But wait, even though it is free?

Re: Forum & Database Update

Waffle was banned 4 months ago when he started sending me strong worded messages.

I created a decision making thread on the Mods & Admins board asking for his banning. Everybody agreed. And Carlos did the honors!

Yup - all FREE to advertise but he his response was this...

"I'll pass, it's been tried and not been successful before. Print material just isn't going to be successful. It's hardly successful in the mainstream aviation, much less something as niche as toy airplanes. -Michael"

For starters - it isn't print based and secondly it is not showcasing and featuring toys.

Sounds just like him
He does probably have a point though as for it not being successful. Online advertising is usually more effective these days. Especially for niche market products such as aircraft models.

Re: Forum & Database Update

Yeah, very true. I wanted to see the dream through with this magazine project. I am hoping I still will but as you say it may not go further than 1 issue if the response is not that good.

No surprise there.
How he runs a business like that I don't know.

I really hope it works out well for you Nathan. It will be great for everyone if it works out!
It's just a matter of whether people are interested in advertising really.

Well, we will see. I can't wait for the first issue! By the way, I was on your site and noticed the forum - and decided to test it out. I only posted what I did for the reason that I couldn't think of anything else constructive to post.

He has over 400+ collection models priced cheaply. That's the only thing I ever bought from him.
