Oh come on...

I've spent a hard earned $50 on this forum. I've seen there's been an increase in Titanium membership, and of course, if you don't have membership, the ads abound.

The search is laughably bad (when it works, which it isn't right now) and that's when you can even get onto BF! It was down late last night and my guess is it wasn't caused by a huge number of people logging on at 11:30 pm.

And now I have a little linky in case I want to spend more money advertising on BF?

I'm getting a little frustrated by this. I know $50 isn't going to save the internetz, but it's money that I spent to enjoy this site and I don't really feel as though my money is being well used.

I'm gonna go with 'duh' on this one.
That's what you get for buying a Ti membership.

I really believe server maintenance and monitoring will improve as this site gains popularity and more advertisers get engaged. One of the best things to do is actually start your purchases from BF; those "clicks" will result in more credits and adv. hits, unless IB has changed the way they've done business.

Also, Foo is probably not the place to post about forum issues that need resolution...

true, but as much as I enjoy bike parts, I also enjoy BF, so I figure it's only right to support them....now if they would just support all of us...

I'm still waiting for a thank-you card from my mortgage company. Something like "The economy sucks, but you keep paying your mortgage on time. Thanks!".

I'm not hopeful.
