Rib 4 Macmillan

On the other hand I have be able to have the use of Ribnet to do this project which is now quite famous.

To do this on an open forum is amazing

That's a fair point Pete, just to clarify about this one project and non of the other shyte that went on before, Whisper wrote the article and it's been printed word for word, HMS has agreed to mention all the people who built it including the businesses and he's upped the article content from 2.000 words to 3.500 and again this will be written by whisper, most people know there is no love lost between HMS and me but in this case he has been more than fair, his mag relies on ads to pay the way and he's donated a vast amount of that space to our cause, so if you're sending the RIBnet police anywhere you need to head for the ginger ninjas place

Totally agree and I'm not knocking RIBNET at all. Its a fantastic place to do so,etching like this. If it wasn't via this outlet it could have been another forum that you've helped get all this awareness too. Without your work I don't think they'd have any publicity at the boat show, for example! That's worth supporting, surely...

I'm just a little surprised the company (not the admin) haven't chosen to support it, maybe they have and I'm not aware. In which case I'm wrong.

Anyway let's not take the focus away from the genuinely amazing work you've all done. Keep it up

They probably don't even know about it. Social Knowledge has very little to do with the day to day running of the forums and they generally just leave us alone to do our thing.
