Hi all

The work to develop the website will continue for the next few days.

This is due to an essential restructuring of the marketplace to make the running and improvement of the website viable.

There will be an annual subscription required to advertise items over a certain price point in the marketplace - similar to the requirement over at our American friend's website over at TalkBass where you need to be a contributing member to advertise items for sale. This system has worked well for them and has been welcomed by their regular membership.

This will be a fairer system than at the moment where the vast majority of advertisers who use Basschat to sell items never contribute a single penny.

Whilst our WebDev Geoff implements the changes there may be a few forum downtimes - stay tuned!!

I am assured that the software for the transition over to a subscribed marketplace is in place.

Geoff will be switching it over during Monday morning and so the forum will be offline for a while, so get those bass videos ready to watch or you might not make it until lunchtime! :)
