    Big Mike,
    I agree with what you said.
    Most of all, I love the opportunity to look over Allen's shoulder as you say,and try to see how he thinks and how he acts on certain things. Absolutely priceless.

      Right on Big Mike!

      I certainly think it's ok to provide feedback (one will make unpopular changes that may sometimes turn the idea around), but freaking out about stuff isn't healthy or warranted.

    I agree, stuff like ads being annoying is very minor, even if there was something more concerning, it's best to contact help desk instead of creating a thread.

    As long as this forum allows me to visit each day (or I should say all day long) then I will be happy. Major or minor changes don't matter because I'm looking at the big picture. Thanks Mike for reminding us that we should all be on our best behavior as guests in Allen's house!

          Here is what would annoy me.

          The forum going down.
          The forum closing permanently.
          The forum being paid only at $2 million a year membership fee.
          The forum only be open to residents of Mars.
          The forum only having threads on how to remove snot from your nose.

          This forum has made more 6 and 7 figure earners than I think most people
          would admit to.

          There's an old saying.

          "Don't bite the hand that feeds you."

          My finish to that saying goes like this.

          "It just might slap you silly and toss you in a landfill."

            This is a plugin for vbulletin specifically but they are easily created by someone with some web design experience.

            I was looking a this:

              Any chance we could get a plugin that would have hamsters doing pirouettes across the screen? That would instigate a whole barrage of threads I'm sure, and Big Mike would crawl into an Ouzo bottle for a few months.

    Michalis, how about to politely ask them to post in the off-topic forum instead of making fun of them?

    I was distracted and surprised (but not a big deal at all), and I wrote in the thread you're refering to that I was about to post about the corner ad.

    But my intention was to post in the off-topic forum to simply ask members what they think.


    But I agree with you and Jason. It's not our house here. Plus we can learn from what is done in term of marketing in this forum.

    "There is nothing so foolproof that a sufficiently
    talented fool can't screw it up!"

    The ONLY thing I need to say about the value of this
    forum... and how Allen chooses to run it... is that I
    once read a thread about forum marketing that lead
    directly to me selling over $100K worth of a lead
    generation program to a specifically targeted market
    via an industry specific forum.

    NOTE TO ALLEN: Please annoy me with more of that

    Allen has done a few things here that I didn't like, but I don't think I mentioned a single one, even in private. They were minor, and it IS his forum. When I left, those couple times for so long, it was SIMPLY because I was busy, etc... NOT because of anything ANYONE here did.

    And some say all *I* do is complain.

    Big Mike, I just joined the forum yesterday, and this is my first post. I think it was PT Barnum who said "You can please all of the people some of the time, but you can't please all of the people, all of the time" I have been in all kinds of marketing businesses, and forums in my 44 years in business, and I have yet to find one where someone isn't complaining about something. That is just human nature. This Forum is no different. My experience is that it is usually just a few people, and my technique is to ignore them, and be part of the solution, not part of the problem. I am very happy to have found this Forum, and I plan to be a member permanently,and join the War Room. I hope to contribute value in the future, and look forward to meeting other members.
    Thanks again for your post Mike, and thanks Allen for a great forum.
