It should stay. I sold two boats on OSO and used the Forum both times and the classifieds once.

I look at both to see who has what for sale. I do not mind doing so.

The only reason to do away with the forum is for money. The only way you will convince me otherwise is to let Platinum Members post boats for sale in the classified section for free.

The incrementalism of ever increasing costs to participate on OSO has been going on since I joined back in 2001.

To think or state the motive is anything other than $ motivated in naive.

I'm all for the site making money, but I do wish that section would stay. I check there every day, but only look in the classifieds every once in a while.
Maybe someday I'll buy a new boat, and I won't have to check either.

I do not think its is BY ANY MEANS for OSO to make money. I think its aways for them to cut down on costs. This is a big site with lots of members and servers and bandwwidth and developers cost money.

I think its avery useful part of the site and i'd hate to see it go. But i do understand the "hemoraging $$$" concept. Hell steve is throwing a party next weekend and as far as i can tell he's flipping the bill and its not gonna be a small bill either.

I'm for OSO making money, I just like the format of a forum. There is no give and take for the members to see in the classifieds - don't like the pictures either. They can always PM when it comes time to transact.

Way more parts for sale this way IMO. People would be less likely to post "junk sales" in a pay per ad classified. I like rifling through these.

I think if you look at it, this little advantages actually drive up membership.
