Advertisments...?

Whats the deal with all the the advertisements for what seems like someones business...? I don't know how everyone else feels about this but I don't think the place for this is on the main board, unless these businesses are chipping in to keep the site going.

Perhaps there should be a separate section where any business can post stuff like this and leave the main board for individuals and supporting businesses who drop a bit of coin.

Just my 2c.

I don't mind them...great prices and he is a signed in member ......and if you read them he IS giving a percentage of the sale to this site which will be chopping into an already small profit margin I would imagine....since he is looking after us....
I can see your point though.... if he was to put the prices in a shed or blog they would be available to the needy when they need them....for a lot longer.
But prices change so quickly these days (farkin yanks)it's probably not worth it
not quite 2cents, but close (missus wont let me spend big)

5 cents because no one will just give you 2 cents these days.
He is helping people by making parts available at cheaper prices (don't know how much haven't researched it). Getting cheaper parts can make rebuilds alot quicker.
BUT I agree that it would be better if there was another place to put them. Like if rusty could get a single post about it to stay at top, labelled "cheaper autometer, K&N etc" it would be good rathewr then gettin the same post reposted daily to get it to stay.

just my opinion

Rusty and I were working with Davies, Craig to get good prices for fans for the members, unfortunately it was hard for them to do a great price due to wholesale commitments (plus they were only able to offer us EWPs and controllers at first). Luckily Pandy has a business and is able to supply the parts for a fair percentage cheaper again then we were able to get plus he is able to supply a huge range of other parts also.

Feel free to check his prices and buy it elsewhere if you can find it cheaper but I've already noticed that with some of his items he is much cheaper then other places I have checked. For instance our price from Davies, Craig was 25% off recommended retail (for the EWP and controller) and Pandy knocked another $30 approximately off that price.

It's up to Rusty to decide how he wants to handle the advertisement of parts, whether to make a sticky topic or a link to a topic or whatever, I'm sure he has something up his sleeve (other than his arm) but for the moment what Pandy is doing is fine, he has a lot of products to offer us all at very good prices. Probably a single topic with everything would be good but it would be a massive post...then a link to that thread? it's up to Rusty to decide anyway.

"drop a bit of coin" The problem is the internet is all about freeloading and there is little definition between the inputer and the outputer. Now companies wouldn't take advantage of that now would they.

I like Reapers idea about Pandy uses a single topic to post stuff and update that post when needed as the board works well like this(massive is good). If he is looking at taking money off users here in some sort of regularity he should disclose his company name.
BTW Pandy DC backed off quick smart when you posted prices.

Have a look at capricorn.com.au everyone, post if you know others.
I'd say account prices would be nice. I could put the shop back up and fill it too.(I could put in a shop for you too Pandy which would save you doing a website)
