    Although I haven't been on this site for long, I really gained a lot of knowledge browsing Ricky's posts.

    Many of us pay membership to be on this forum, while you don't have to I always have because I found this forum so valuable for help especially from Ricky. He should be considered a value added resource for this forum. So count me as another mod in support of him

I am also being told to change my user name and or pay vendor fees.

    Question can I sell guns on here if I pay the fees!! I doubt it.

    EXTORTION is sickening.
    I have no issue with your used items but a batch of new shift knobs is a bit much. We have vendors here who sell knobs so you should be able to understand why you selling them while not being a vendor is an issue and violation of forum rules. So your screaming about "EXTORTION" is over the top and why I have deleted that thread. If you have questions about that contact me by PM.
    We do have a couple R8 Facebook pages that were started by members here, maybe you could conduct your business there?

    Okay, I can understand that. If it was me I'd be giving a percentage cut to the forums nominated charity.

    Re: Quite disappointed!

    Yes I have a problem you deleted my used items too and told me I have to change my user name. That is extortion and a joke just like what you are doing here to this guy Ricky too.

    I made the knobs at the request of other users on here asking me to make some for them. I made a batch of 50 out of my pocket to keep the cost reasonable.

    Sorry I didn't charge everyone 400.00 for a shift knob so I could pay your extortion fees to give people a chance to have one after asking me to make them for them.

    I had already talked to another admin who said it was fine. So get your COMMUNICATION between you guys and straight and stop running good members off.

    I have been here for a few months and have around 100 posts already and you are already running me off.

    No one ever even told me what kind of fee it was before shutting my posts down either you said it is fine don't worry about it. Otherwise I could have made a small adjustment in the price and notified users. If you are not really making any profit then how are you a vendor btw?

    So are you going to tell me what the fees are 50.00 or is it like 5000.00? If you are not willing to tell me then how can I even make a choice.

    I cannot see 50 shift knobs, loosing any vendor on here this much butt hurt this is very very sad imho. I feel this is more about politics then money.
