    Their login page doesn't seem to work anymore, so it's effectively impossible to connect on the forum.

    I tried to raise the attention about this problem to the administrators through the "Contact us" form, but upon sending the message there's also an error.

    It's pretty farcical.

    Did you say something to an admin that might slightly imply that Rolex is not the savior of all mankind?

    He said that although he enjoys his Rolex, the bracelets leave a little to be desired….CANCELLED!

    :whistling: I heard, he bought a Seiko and excitedly boasted about its capabilities and practical price point.

    Did you first participate in two other Rolex forums that you don’t like and didn’t want to join before you tried to login to TRF? :)

    Well it’s not like the admins there don’t deserve a little ribbing over their hair trigger for banning people.

    Best line of that article:

    They follow up this effort by increasing their prices each year, as well as limiting the availability of their watches; some models have a 10+ year wait-list. None of this speaks to the quality of the brand, which isn’t much better than other entry-level Swiss brands (though much higher than Invicta).

    Ha ! You guys :oops:

    Ironically I hadn't visited TRF much for many months now, and only needed to login so I could see attached pictures in a few threads.

    More time on OF it is then - it's not like I'm missing much anyway, given all the availability issues and the dearth of discussion which ensues.

    apparently not. We should mosey over to the vintage omega section and let know how cheap they all are.












    Jokes, people!

    I have been a member there for a very long time. I had only a handful of posts many, many years ago. I recently inherited a Datejust from my diseased brother and wanted to get some info on it. So I logged on and discovered I could not post on any of the sub-forums. At some point, some became visible and the rest showed as PRIVATE.

    This is what I see if I don't logon.

    image (1).png

    I created a second member account so I could test a theory that the permissions for my account were jacked up. Sure enough, I could see everything and even post.

    I contacted the Admins through the Contact US and waited and waited and waited. Finally I got a reply. After trading several cryptic messages with a nameless person, I gave up. The last reply I got from the Admin was:

    "Due to scammers requesting password help we require anyone now to follow

    this procedure.


    To authenticate the account:


    You must authenticate your original account if you wish to continue.


    To reactivate your account you must authenticate your identity.


    To solve this problem and authenticate and have your account reinstated

    your identity and account needs to be verified:


    (a) send US$25 by Paypal to account [email protected]


    (b) in the message section of your payment state:


    I. Your name and address;


    II. Your username;


    III. Your email at TRF;


    IV. Your telephone number.


    We may have to create a donor account and then merge the existing account

    into the donor account if the account has 2FA activated and you cannot

    unlock 2FA. If this is the case further work will be required and you will

    have to make a request for this to be done, which will involve additional

    time and admin fee.


    Subject to the above and checks your account will be rectified and a new

    password will be issued to you and your account restored."

    So, I'm being asked to send them $25 to do their job. This is a very poor way to treat members. It's a permissions issue, not a password issue. It should take less that 10 minutes to fix. It looks to me like they need someone with VBulletin experience to help them out.

    Geez, and I thought that buying a Rolex was difficult!
