Message Board - ownership and management

GH Members can run their own auctions of horological items here or participate in some public auctions using Global Horology as a proxy. Please read the forum rules.
Forum rules
If you want to run your own auction here you must be at least 18 years of age and be a GH Member to participate in this forum. Registered users need to have their address verified by the message board management before they can be ranked as GH Members .

There are four basic rules for running your own auction:
1) Auction presentations must fully disclose the condition and known provenance of the items being sold, including any information that might influence a potential buyer. Selling an item "as is" will indicate that the item is not running reliably and should be considered as needing work or to be used for parts only.
2) You are responsible for running your own auctions, so you must be available to mind the auction and to post notice when the auction ends.
3) You may decide to cancel an auction before the original stated end-time or extend it, but you should make this clear by posting that on the auction topic when it starts.
4) When the auction has finished, you should post notice of its completion and the name of the winner.

A completed auction is a contract. Any disputes should be referred to the message board management, whose decision will be final.

Too vague to understand. What are you offering? What is the future?

Not enough members and posts to be profitable, so it's just a labor of love.

I can offer to donate cash if that helps. My time is so limited now. I wish I could do more. This place introduced a lot of men to horology,it also kept a lot of men going. Me included.
Keep winding things,

It has never been about profit. It is supposed to be about FUN !!!!!!!!!

Least wise that is how I view it.

Hi, folks,

Stephan considered taking over the message board but then thought better of it, so it's a big Thank You to him for offering some kind of rescue.

Thank you to all who have contributed - especially the stalwart members who kept their posts coming in. Without posts, a message board such as this cannot survive.

The board is likely to close down tomorrow (17th January). If anyone wants to share responsibility for this GH message board, you had better make me an offer in the next few hours or it will be Goodbye and Thank You to all.

Glyn,

I am sorry to hear that this place is closing. It was always a great place to post my projects and for a period of time the camaraderie was great. Thank you much for the time we had.

On a side note; What will happen to all the content? Is there a chance we could get a few days to copy some of our own content off that we wish not to lose?

Thanks again for your efforts.

Today is the last day, Phil. Not sure exactly when Godaddy will pull the plug.
