    No, whether it was a tenner to contribute to the site's advertising I use daily for free or a tenner donated to the club. It's a tenner I dont think I was scammed out off. Happy with the look of the banner too.

    I love it when the admin lead the way with a bit of maturity.

    Yeah it doesn't offend me in any way. I find it amusing people losing their shit at Tollys wind up.

    Sadly Tollys not clever enough for that. Might expect it from a more seasoned Arsehole but as I said earlier, far too blatantly obvious.

    You'd have thought that after having to trawl through 3 pages to delete the embarrassing reactions on this very thread that lessons may have been learnt.

    It seems not.

    Sometimes the mods like to have a bit of fun. I would suggest the only embarrassing reaction on here is that of your friend Tolly though. ;)

    I suppose it had to happen some day...a Fordy post I agree with! And it's still an hour to go before dinner and a glass (or two) of wine...

    The first few posts on this thread gave the purpose, design, even the size; the pics show the banners, as advertised and in VP. City has got our money. BT gets some publicity. And some of us, we few, we lucky few, we band of brothers get to be inside VP whilst (start mournful violin) the rest of the poor huddled masses remain outside, noses pressed against the fence.:devil: No failures to deliver so far...

    Far too much angst over an inexpensive bit of fun. And God knows we need some fun nowadays. I must say that the best thing I've ever seen on the dark side is a video of Hobbes and his band.

    How big would this forum be if it wasn't literally lifted, lock, stock and and barrel from the model Ed spent years building? Don't feel any pride in this place Karl, it's Ed's work and always will be!

    If @Tolly856@Tolly856 is on the wind up then thats just sad.

    And if he isn't,then his original post wrongly assuming none of the donators had any idea what was happening and why, is sadder still.

    That was the whole point in this forum was it not? Somewhere where C&B could live on after Ed's decision to close the site. That was the idea to make something very similar so people would feel comfortable and hardly notice the change. Clearly it worked.

    Coincidentally, today is the day that the domain name ran out and obviously was not renewed by Ed or Basel. Officially marking the end of Claret & Banter.

    As far as I'm aware, this site isn't a business. As forum for views on the various club goings on, it is a product of the members who contribute opinions and cash, and in the case of a few others, time and more cash than is probably fair - thanks Simon.
    Any suggestion that those who contributed to the banner are being ripped off by unscrupulous types lining their own pockets is ridiculous.

    It was sold to me as:
    1. Helping the club out during these difficult times.
    2. Increasing the profile of the forum.
    3. That's it.

    Having my name on there is largely pointless and I would've donated regardless.

    I'm well aware of the reasons for this forum's formation. I just find out a bit pathetic that Karl tries to patronise TCA when his own forum is only a success due to someone else's years of hard work.

    For the record, TCA is not interested in being busier, poaching users from here or increasing the brand name.

    Both useful sites in their own way, don't feel so threatened karl.

    Last thing I feel is threatened

    I know its all a wind up ... and I take it for what it is

    I give a bit back and I think you take it in the same vein... tongue in cheek

    Harsh.
    Karl deserves credit for keeping it going. I can imagine he could be doing better things with his time. Likewise SimonW.
    I find the current forum an upgrade on the original, tbh. It is still has its share of nonsense and pettiness but it's less childish, aggressive and 'macho' than the old site could be at times (Did that part go to the Cow's Arse?). At the risk of going for the full compliment of backsides to kiss, I think the mods do a great job in keeping it relatively friendly.
