      Advertisers   08/12/17

      If you would like to advertise on my VI Corps site, please let me know. However, all ads must be directly related to WWII. Are you an author? Are you conducting tours? Are you a researcher? Prices are very reasonable, for aren't we here to benefit each other? Looking forward to hearing from you. 

      Viewers, please note, there WILL NOT be giant pop-up ads on my site. Nothing infuriates me more than going to someone's site and having to scroll past obnoxious, in your face ads or ones that are stuck in the middle of articles, forcing you to scroll further down the page to see the rest of the paragraphs. They will be tasteful, appropriately places small banners.

That's why I like this more than Facebook. You can search for topics and the subjects are organized. I don't use FB (it's from the DEVIL!!) but I do Google plus for WWII and modeling subjects. It annoys me how things just disappear down the memory hole of the thread.

Oh you and me both. Facebook could never take the place of a real message board. Several of my friends use it as such and it's a real pain. As you said, it just disappears down a drain hole. Facebook works well to communicate with my Alger Park and Rec board members - "Hey guys, don't forget to bring such and such to the meeting tonight..."

 

It works well as a basic storefront - people can see what you do, or where you are located, etc.

 

I had a VI Corps presence on FB until a few weeks ago, then I pulled the plug. Why am I posting in both places? Plus, when I did post something, it got lost in the shuffle. If I wanted to add something to an ongoing post, I had to scroll through dozens and dozens of topics just to find it again (if I could). So I had to stop and ask myself, why am I bothering? I hate the format and I already have a website and forum that works splendidly.

 

LOL! Guess we got a little off-topic but that's okay. At least we are communicating!

Yeah, Frank is here. Great to hear from you and all the best to you and yours!

As usual I am very late with my Christmas cards so I think you and Todd will receive my Christmascard after the holidays. I am sorry for that.
