Re: Sailnet has new owners
Welcome new owners. Some advise from a longtime member: Dont mess with the formula that makes SN great.
Please dont make this site any more ad-covered than it already is. Or do the other nasty things like basic features (messaging, searching, etc) being repackaged as premium stuff. That's the kind of gimmickiness that can ruin a true resource that Sailnet is. The community side of this formula works just fine. I know you probably paid a pretty penny for this site, but dont let the business side of the equation ruin what we have here.
We've already had our forum "schism" a while back now and it took many of our best contributors to another forum where we're all pretty much members of too. Lets keep SN community focused rather than bottom-line focused.
