Thumbs up

Certain people won't want to hear your comments Randy, but I applaud you for posting that.

I certainly agree that OSO has the right to charge and do anything they want, it's their site,, and why should't they make some profit,,,, but like the debate that started when charging began in the first place,, where will it end,,, first 20.00 and then a year later now 50.00

But like Randy stated,, what would OSO really be without the members, who make this site what it is and so great...

I read the post stuck @ the top of the page about the number of hits per month,,, I am curious, how much of the monthly traffic on OSO is related to the forum ?? would seem to me,, but I have no idea, that the majority comes from us, the forum members, who in turn buy products from advertisers..

How many hits and how much traffic actually comes from the home page ?? does anyone actually use the home page,, I didn't even know there was one in the beginning.. There are exactly 746 paid classified ads on the home page, yet several thousand in the forums classifieds, seems to me it would make more sense to make anyone wanting to sell something pay for the privilege and make them put it into the home page,, would generate a lot of revenue and maybe take some of the burden off the forum members...

Because if you think about it,,, 99% of us are here for one thing and one thing only,,, the forum...

So TRUE!! And the "news" you get in the the mags are old news by the time they go to press. OSO is like the Drudge Report, it has the scoop days before anyone else.

True,, but what are you getting from OSO ??, The information we so greatly crave is comming from each other... They are providing us a place to exchange information,, a forum,, there are lots of free forums all over the internet for us to do the same thing..

They are selling forum space, and @ 50.00 bucks a pop and well over 15,000 members,,, 750,000 per year ain't too shabby at that...

LOL, Your right. But I just payed for a Platinum membership anyway to support the site. Hell, my bar bill at the Miami OSO party was probably more than the cost of the membership. Thanks Steve and Jeffrey.

What do you get? You get to meet some of the greatest people and make Friends from all over the country. (world) Up to the second race updates. Insite from some of the movers and shakers of the marine industry. (past and present). Watch new boats and products come to fruition right before your own eyes. Answers so ANY QUESTIONS you might have in life from people who have been there and done that. PRICELESS!!
