    Default I'm done...

    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.

    Vicky, thank you for all your years of work on this site. When I saw the Vendor Forum, I had a bad feeling. And now we lose you. Again, thank you.

    Thank you Vicky.
    If you think I'm wrong, you might be right.

    Took the RTF sticker off the back of my truck a while ago.
    All the best Vicky!

    Thank you Vicky. Thankless job.

    The reality of affinity for profit sites. Solution? Pay yearly fees and restrict entry. Keeps the bottom feeders out.

    Thanks Vicky, you did a good job.
    As new owners essentially buy websites and throw in their revenue generating adds model, having zero interest in what the Sites are actually all about, we the users can still make use of the forum platform but will have to spend effort pushing aside the new intrusions.
