When do we get out invites for a cruise
See, this is the type of lack of transparency we’re talking about.
The photographed yacht is not the actual OF yacht and is much more pedestrian than the actual mega-yacht unearthed through hours of tax shelter research:
And if you don’t believe me, there’s even proof of the OF mods all photographed together on the ship, displaying their usual amount of overly relaxed and care free anything-goes type of affects:
your estimation of the number of people who will pay is very very much off...
Also OF does something that no other forum does, keeps a record of ALL PICTURES posted for research reasons. Many forums would have started to cull from dead threads to reduce overall storage space. I've heard ballpark numbers as to how much that costs them, and it's quite impressive. While I am not personally sure its the cheapest way to do it but its far from the most expensive. This website is a historical document and provides lots and lots of data for researchers.
The software is also custom build by the people that run this website for this and its sister website. Nothing about keeping this up for years is cheap. in terms of money or time. My only regret is that I cannot pony up to the 2nd level right now.
Sorry, there is very limited availability, Sandy got his 2 weeks ago.
I'm just happy we have a boat now...
After what happened with our last international get together... Let's just say someone used their Flightmaster wrong...
Could it be? A waitlist longer than Rolex?
I looked to see if I could upgrade you but that feature is unavailable.
For now you are restricted to the Seiko thread which is not a real sub-forum as they are second class citizens, you can read only in the Rolex Sub-forum and don’t even think about the UG sub-forum- you’re computer will ignite followed by laughter.
I was promised THIS was the ship to shore transport.........
So, who is this?? @Trev or @dsio ??
It's @ulackfocus - he's been a stowaway for going on 3 years now, able to "hide" on top deck while the remaining mods are in the hold swatting away online complaints from "members"
Actually that is Petros Protopaps, director of the Omega Museum. Just one of many celebrities we host each year.
Very good job, OF admins! I like this upgrade!
Given the Greek flag on the boat... makes complete sense!!!
Just catching up on this thread
I would hope that how we've run the place for the last 10 years or so demonstrates we're not really profit-focused with OF. If we were, then we're terrible at business. We'd like to continue developing the platform and not compromise on the premium hardware/etc that the site runs on.
FO just HAD to wear his GMT...
I wasn't aware of any restrictions on payment method, we haven't blocked anything specific from our end. I was able to use a bank account during testing too.
We'll have to chalk it up to being an odd anomaly. Soon after, I bought a couple of CDs, and Paypal was back to my default bank payment.
Dear @Maskelyne, just curious, are you a commercial market actor for having just sold yesterday, at a nice profit no doubt, the black dialed Longines watch you recently posted on OF?
Is there any chance you were asking for the forum’s validation to boost your sale ?
Just asking for transparency of course.
So maybe the platform does have some value, after all, other than the free validation that the forum members provided of course?
This thread clearly needs more pictures, reposting for clarification,
(The last three pictures were not on OF, they are from the published sales ad).
Of course it’s all perfectly okay, and I commend you for passing watches down to the next generations as you have stated.
