  1. I'm well on my way to Youtube fortune. I now have 6 Subscribers and I bet they all reside here
  2. I only read Big Mike's column and see whether I have made printed forum fame. It's not about having a mag to read for me, it's about paying something for this forum.
  3. I have just said exactly that to the Mrs.
  4. Are you secretly an estate agent, using one of the "locked-down" show apartments pretending to be a journalist?
  5. I've just realised I am still autosubsribed from last year, so now having subscribed again, I will have two copies. I am happy paying £100 a year anyway, well worth it.
  6. That was a good one James and how humble is Mike Brewer, considering he must have amassed a small fortune by now.
  7. Only you TV. Me, I would have bullshitted and blagged that it was mine
  8. I personally would not print a magazine, just a digital copy for £50 a year. Or if people are insistent on a tangible copy, then that's £100 a year. Just this second renewed by subs and it was less than £50. What a bargain, even if it is just for Big Mike's column.
  9. For all forum members who don't subscribe to the magazine, I think we all should. Many of us pay thousands a year to advertise our cars and this is something like £50 a year a no brainer. I know what I would be telling Farnborough International by the way, time to find another venue hastag shortsighted. Good luck.
  10. Thank you for your frank explanation. To be honest, I hadn't considered CDX or the awards. Hopefully, you can batten down some hatches, furlough the staff (I guess you have) and minimise outgoings. I just thought the fixed costs would be relatively low as things like CDX only cost when they go ahead. All my best James. PS: I would be making the subscription of the magazine a requirement to gain "free" access to the forum by the way. It may get rid of some spammers too.
  11. Like all Broadband and Telephone providers utilise BT's lines (as far as I am aware).
  12. Hi James I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing cash flow issues too. It may be my naivety but I thought businesses such as yours, Online, Publications, Media etc would be fairly resilient to the lock down. I thought it would mostly affect those unable to trade, carrying large stock values with or without stocking loans (all business sectors) with no means of selling (or certainly well below normal numbers). I guess your advertising subscribers have drastically dropped off which would explain your issue. I am so pleased (thank you) that you have managed to maintain the forum. It is free and the contacts I have made is incredible and to be fair is the main reason why I subscribed to the mag to offer some revenue back to Blackball Media. Fingers crossed we all make it through.
