    are you talking about folks on this forum being takers.
    thought it worked pretty well all round for all users.

    ill go against the grain.
    find it really sad that grown men wanna pay money to get some naff plaque to hang on their car.
    youre all end up looking like sheep instead of being individuals which i first thought rodding was all about.
    obviously not.

    isnt just using the website or any website a sort off allience anyway.
    i believe you can get a discount at a lot of traders by being a member of the nsra or some of the yanky clubs.
    why as a trader would you wanna give someone a discount just because they use a web forum

    Interesting take on it and intrigued to see the responses

    But this bit I can answer. It makes business sense really. This site is a captive audience

    The people are here with a shared interest. Rather than relying on passing traffic or large scale magazine advertising the people are already in one spot.

    By offering a discount to the sites members the trader is getting a large exposure to it's captive audience. Moreso than most as it would be more visible promoting the traders offer.

    The discount comes out of the profit but due to the likelihood or larger or more frequent orders this works out to a greater profit than having stuff sat on the shelves

    I'm not one for hanging plaques & the like from my car, but I can understand why some people would like others to know that in doing so, they are part of the R n S "community. It's not about being a sheep, it's being proud to be involved with something that is good.

    Only the other day a shout was put out on the forum that a forum member was on his hols & had broken down & was stranded. It was through the community of the forum that a forum member, who was local, went & supplied a part to get the guy back off on his hols.That's not being a part of a herd of sheep my friend, that's being a part of something that is positive, helpful & downright good.


    cheers....Nige

    Nige, that is exactly what it's all about. You've captured the essence of RnS perfectly there.

    So much so that i've even turned that quote into my sig

    That also shows when you are out on the road where you share cameraderie with kindred spirits . If I spot a rod ,sod , or bike, stopped by the side of the road I'll always stop and offer a phone to use if there's nothing else I can do to help . It's nice to belong to that sort of group.
