    Site sharing.

    Would it be feasible or a good idea to have a separate thread where BM could list sites that they find useful or informative?
    Stuff like motoring, lifestyles, humour ect?

    Or would it just turn in to unwanted advertising?

    Not a bad idea, Pete. I think the benefits would outweigh the negative.

    Yes well away from spammers... And with a set of ground rules about site that are purely advertising services not being allowed I should think.

    Most of the sites people find entertaining are already straining under the weight of commercials how would you regulate that?

    Thinking more in terms of sites that are there just to sell a product or range of products. In other words a BM could not put up his favourite used car dealership's site.

    I don't care about advertising, it's mostly the quoting that comes with the links. Google takes content that it deems belonging to another site and penelises you for plagiarism if repeated too often and your site ends up losing it's ranking. Sefton has managed to bury himself deep in the bowels of google with wholesale copy/pastes of news articles from other sites. Partly the reason why AI sees little new traffic.

    Here is an example of a site I like to look at every second day or so.. A mixture of cars, bikes and some products.

    https://silodrome.com/

    And always worth a read just for the interest factor.

    A forum is only as good as those that participate. continual "sniping" at each other chases people away. Facebook is chock full of adds, but it attracts a lot of people. Unfortunately, Facebook is so full of crap that it's hard to follow anything other than a "Hello, how are you?". But, because it is widely used around the world it is good to keep loosely in touch with people. The "Friends" part of Facebook is all computer generated and very few people actually know you or want to be your friend. However, there are sub-forums connected to Facebook that are directed to people's own interest. I'm active in a forum called flybc.ca. They also have a sub-forum connected to Facebook that can be interesting.
