I'm sure many of you have seen the new forum "Vendor Deals". When this was first presented, I voiced my concerns with the new ownership of RTF. I felt that this was unfair to many who have been long standing sponsors of RTF. I also disagreed that we could no longer show our kennel names (which represents many of our businesses) in our signatures.
I have been a Moderator of RTF for many years and had taken on the majority of the upkeep of the Classified forums. I felt this was another way for me to "give back" to the retriever world and also to help out Chris who I have much respect and admiration. After Chris sold RTF, I was made ADMIN. I had hoped to continue to keep RTF going as Chris had worked so hard to do. I don't see that as a possibility any longer. I have loved and have been proud to be a part of RTF, but I no longer look forward to signing in multiple times throughout the day to "work" on RTF.
I have made a request that kennel names still be allowed in signatures without having to get vendor credentials and paying a fee. I was previously told that part would be edited out of the new Vendor Deals rules. I don't know what will happen now since it was kept in the rules.
