Im with Hillside on this. Whatever he meant.
But seriously, I understand Jim's point about not having to look at the value forum, and I rarely do. However, the whole "flipping" attitude has seemed to take over the site. There are a lot more "members" now but many just ask the value of something. I miss new members asking questions about the history or the pump they just got, or should they strip the guts or not, or the paint code. I miss the guys who scored something cool and were excited to post it here.
Basically, this was a collectors site, and now there is an influx of flippers who know little and contribute even less. I still enjoy the site and appreciate Jim's efforts, but I come here less often now.


Wanted: Original Jenney Gas, Husky, Marathon, and Frontier Globes

This is really going too far down the wrong road. I think everyone on here would help out the other guy given the chance in person if possible. Lets just keep that in mind and move on.

I disagree. I think this thread should never be locked,ever.When you have members from across the country with very different times in the hobby for very different reasons expressing honest opinions and thoughts,to me it is imperative that they be presented to the forum for consideration.Agree or disagree,but at least listen when that many cumulative years of experience is talking.

BTW Ryan,that's not the first time you told a member to leave if they don't like the way things are going.I think that is sad.

For the record. I never said that I thought he should leave. Go a couple posts above this and read it again.

Twisting words around that I did not type to fit your agenda is what is really sad.

I Stated a fact.. for something that he is complaining about so harshly, he sure does participate and awful lot.



Here is the straight scoop. If you dont like fast food, then go to McDonalds and get a cheeseburger, you have no business complaining to the management that it is fast food.

Its quite simple. If you dont like the value section, DONT READ IT! Nobody is forcing anybody to read anything. If you dont like the For Sale section... DONT READ IT! End of story, its that simple folks!

I dont understand why so many of you have such a problem with this.

Some of you want to argue and complain because you have nothing better to do. I stated the facts, as harsh as they are.

I'm confused, I don't see the post where Ryan told somebody they should leave. Did it get removed?

Long ago I posted that this site should ban the free appraisels....asking of values. I perceived that was not the intentions of this site. That went over like a lead balloon. Later the subject of a seperate catagory for these appraisels was brought up...I whole heartedly agreed that this was a good compromise so this escalating amount of value questions did not clutter the general discussion.

If free appraisels were banned...a lot of these perceived freeloaders would just go away, or not even register. They would have to put forth a little effort to research their asking prices themselves. That value section is becoming more of a problem all the time....and to me it is of little value to anyone who really cares about collectng. There are ample ways to value something these days..without a bunch of collectors (and pickers)disagreeing with each other....starting these bickering sessions.

Jim



You hit the nail on the head.....the real Pickers do not need this site for values it's the pokers that need it.


The most valuable commodity I know of is information-Wall Street
