    We seem to have a new member... BigBuildersBum dot com

    Don't know if they are here to join in or getting ready to contact you all offering all the work under the sun for a fee of £10 per month?

    They are whipping thru reading threads like nobody's business!

    It's your forum, what do you want us to do?

    What a ridiculous name - sums up the mentality of how the industry is perceived.

    asked him out right on twitter not in private if it was going to be like the other tosh sites out there, he seems like a genuine nice bloke (Warren) I told him too come on NOT POST AND NOT ADVERTISE but to look at how we all feel about the schitt sites like my builder etc, sorry if it offends anyone but I do think he's trying to go around it the right way, and seems quite competent & is open to suggestions, so I for one dont think he should start a thread here AT ALL about how his service should progress, but for you guys that use have used but stopped because of the complete bull - like we have seen from a thread on here but are quite open to the idea, I thought you could have some input into how the site should work, what your expectations are, how you expect leads to be vetted before they are even posted etc etc, but not done through here at all, by personal dialogue, and I have nothing to do with that company I PROMISE. Just see potential in it being done in the correct manner, and quite possibly opening it to high end pro's like yourself instead of toshers who will tender for a guy who wants 3 quotes so he can mix n match.

    bit like the taping and jointing forum - more crack than a builders ass - great tag line

    Its Warrens choice as to what direction he wants to go in, I would say, lowballers aint the way forward, and from reading the posts in this forum he will appreciate the quality of your workmanship & maybe change the way he wants to progress

    anyways, i got my own schitt to deal with.,

    again sorry if i offended, dont hate builders bum dude its my fault he's here and yes i expect my bertie point

    Mmmm! :scratchhead:
    Just having a browse thru the P&D section on his site and it is just a few pro's mixed in with a bunch of chancer's. Not a place for me to spend my tenner, that's for sure :no:

    See attachment for just one example...

    I just wonder just how many 'professional' trade's, the ones that don't need to advertise for work, will use it? :scratchhead:

    Answer? NONE! :omg:

    Why? see above. :scratchhead:

    If I was to pay a subscription, £120 a year, :omg: I would want far more than is on offer through a site like that, what fall back is there, what warranty is there, how good are the leads, ect. :sad:

    Personally, this site will only for it's owner! :whistle:
