Commercialism.RR's death knell?

Discussion in 'The Quarterdeck' started by tripehound, Apr 22, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does RR have a future now that commercialism has reared its ugly head?
  2. Not if the advertisers check in on their investment and discover the eloquent range of postings from :laughing3: boy.

    As much of a chance as you had when evolution reared it's head. How's the works of Shakespeare coming along?

    Whilst many may not be fans of advertising, myself included, I'd guess the removal of it could be the death knell of the site.

    The "old & bold" may be heartened to learn that they may have some respite from careers -related queries as there are rumours afoot regarding the launch of a new RN website in June-ish. Within it could quite possibly be 4 forums: RN.COM (already established) for families/friends of/& those already serving, an RFA forum for those wishing to join, an RN Forum for those wishing to join & a RM Forum (already established) for those wishing to join.

    This will doubtless aid those on here with high blood pressure however those of us still serving & those who have served (the bulk of contributors on here) wanting a less official arena to mouth-off have to accept that there are running costs with regard hosting this forum, free at the point of use. The alternatives are out there, accessible by the miracle that is Google, however consistent rumours to plug another site such as Romft belay the fact that this site is very much alive.

  7. FFS Blobs, what the hell has ROMFT ever done to you? Send him to ARRSE or E-Goat!

  8. Where do you keep on coming up with all of this??

    Yeah, sorry mate, but you get my drift.

    Arrse would be good, the tool wouldn't last two minutes.
  10. E-goat? You hate him that much?
