Does Gary still own this, thought it had been taken over by the hosting company?
I wouldn't pay 5 euros in principle as it is totally inappropriate nowadays, given no other forum or facebook page locally charges - (in fact a point Gary missed, with respect, he is builder, not an IT or internet guy), is that the vast majority of companies deliberately offer free classifieds to bring traffic to the websites, which is something that the Torre forum desperately needs, having plunged 90% of it's traffic since the heydays.
The charging for classifieds model, is simply quite a few years out of date - especially on a website with very little traffic and most of the traffic is the old familiars, such as myself and regular posters.
I'd be doing the opposite, promoting the forum, free adverts for private/local - tie it in with a facebook page (should have been done years ago). But clearly it's being just left to tick over, perhaps in the hope a buyer comes along at some point?
