Bom dia,

I have received an e mail from Emma asking for any expression of interest in taking over this site?

Is this genuine?

Obrigado

Because of the time difference, I will answer:

Yes, Stephen, it is genuine......

INTERESTING to learn that there are over 5,000 subscribers.

I certainly think it would be helpful if it were made easier to post ads on the site - both for houses / flats and for other stuff.

My suggestion would be ( if it is necessary to charge and I accept it might be ) to charge maybe 10 Euros per ad for house / flat ads and maybe 5 Euros per ad for other stuff ( ok maybe 10 again for cars ).

The key is that the ad should be time limited for say 28 days from first entry, so sellers would be motivated to renew the ad if it was still current. That way the business of long out of date ads still being online and wasting everyone's time would end automatically, and the site owner might have a useful little income stream from the requirement to renew the ads.

Estate Agents could still be charged differently to private advertisers ( but again with their ads having a time limit if not specifically renewed ).

Ads which are still current / valid are a v useful element of interactive users' websites like this one so I do hope this will be taken on board by the new owner in due course.

I would stress that the above is merely my suggestion for improvement to the site : even as it is it has been and remains useful and helpful and many thanks are due to Simon ( r.i.p. ) and Emma.

pretty much my thoughts exactly rhys... the cars and estate agents sites just exist, the people who put their ads on just leave them there and I remember it was very time consuming to chase them up. The economy has changed since those sites were created so now is a good time for a re-vamp.

I think two new categories on the forum would work better for private/individual ads, and there are still lots of people who want to advertise their rental properties for the summer...

Hey let's keep suggesting stuff to fix, change & improve!!
