Vintage Heuer Discussion Forum
The place for discussing 1930-1985 Heuer wristwatches, chronographs and dash-mounted timepieces. Online since May 2003.
Sent you an email regarding this -- I'm interested.
: Yes, I am well aware of the general character and content of the
: ChronoTrader Forum. And I still believe that it is worthwhile to
: maintain in its current form, at least for now.
: Let me point out that I have funded operation of the forum for
: almost 17 years, and have not made the first dollar from it. It
: is free for both buyers and sellers; some will say
: "thanks"; most don't bother; it really doesn't matter
: to me either way. But when people write to me demanding that I
: remove 50 of their previous messages, or asking that I host 20
: of their photos . . . that's where I draw the line. No Thanks.
: I do not want to waste my time policing the forums -- whether the
: Heuer discussion forum or ChronoTrader. If someone wants to
: volunteer, just send me your information and we can see what
: might be possible. In the meanwhile, I believe that most of our
: buyers are able to fend for themselves.
: I can report that in the almost 17 years that ChronoTrader has been
: online, I believe there have been one or two instances of buyers
: being ripped off (and they were not very smart in their
: "due diligence").
: It would be nice to move to a new software platform, but migrating
: 200,000 messages will be a real challenge. Not to mention the
: profiles, etc. This is on my "to do" list, but I must
: confess that it is not at the top of the list. Again -- reach
: out to me if you want to fund or manage this project.
