Never! One of the things which was discussed at length, no one shall edit anything without making it very clear and as a last resort ;)

I suspect that 50 includes guests seeing as there is a whopping 22 members at the moment. :?

need to get it appearing in google when searching for landcruiser forum or club. that way newcomers will know of its existence. i think the only way to do is to get loads of links to this site on other viable high ranking sites in the same category, you see where this is going :lol:

So where are the club stickers then? And the commitee, and the lifetime membership, ;)

Had on another forum the ability to put your national flag on profile when filling in from drop down menu, went very well.

By the way, is this thing costing anything to run?

Yes, the google ranking is an issue. There is no way to beat it other than have lots of good content, millions of mentions of Landcruiser or Land Cruiser or Toyota Landcruiser (you get my point ;) and links to other sites of similar content.

The first options is curable by us and is in progress. The second, slowly slowly we get there.
I have done some basic SEO stuff to the forum but am not happy with it so working on another version. That should help.

Mostly though folks, spread the word to others and put any content, write ups, trip reports etc you can. It'll all help ;)

Ooops, i am a name and not a number :cry:

Just got this from Simon:

As I've already told Gary ...

I have no personal issue with you at all, but I have a zero tollerance policy with regards to using the TLOCUK facilities to invite members to a competing site.

If I see weblinks, personal messages (PM), or invitations of any sort, from this point forward, it will result in loss of services and, ultimately, the suspension of the 'offending' account.

I wish you and the founders of the new site the best of luck with their venture, but you'll have to do it WITHOUT the use of the TLOCUK services.

I can't believe he is admitting to viewing others PM's :o that is totally out of order.

Oh and I have just had a warning to.... I feel Simon is loosing his grip :?

You think he edits them too? :lol: :lol:

So clearly he reads our 'PM' stuff. That's like going into someone's house and opening their mail!! I don't even open SWMBOs mail, or go into her handbag (scary in there ...) so I am peeved. :twisted:

I wonder what the data protection act says about that? Think I'll go read up on it and see if I can find any precedents. Recent case law would be nice, too. Don't get me started .... :evil: :evil:

What a wally. I assume then that my PMs were blocked, so the invitees will not know ... Ian - got a mail list from enquiries for parts we can use? Jon - can you get last year's Lincomb list from Julian - that's not whatsisnames, coz he made me post it in 'Other Events' not 'Club Events'.

Maak my so kwaai ek wens ek't nou 'n blerrie groot stok :evil:

The vast majority of my contact is via the PM system :(

I do not fully understand the way Google ranks sites, would it help if I stuck a load of parts on eBay and put a link to here in each of the ads?

I wrote that but it's appearing as yours.

Not really - it sort of works the other way. A link to here for more information / discussion from your ebay sale would work.
Google basically says "Right, who is talking about this site. Are they good? If a good site is mentioning another site, the the other site must be good too".
The more good sites mention a single site, the higher google ranks the mentioned site.

(I'll read that in the morning and it'll not make sense...)
