Quote from: CharlieRaymondo on Jan 29, 2020, 06:57 pmI don't visit here much but always appreciate what everyone does and I don't download here much either but the ones I have were nowhere else! Will always donate and don't take the piss/leech either but if you throw me out I want my money back hahahaha

Still not got around to deleting 'non visiting members' yet but I will in the near future.   

I know this place is an insignficant site compared to the likes of DIF & Fruit Emu but we DO have a small 'but extremely loyal' membership here, and that's the reason we keep going. 

18 years and still around, can't be bad that!!
Welcome to DADsFME, enjoy your stay :)

Totally agree mate except for one thing THIS SITE IS NOT INSIGNIFICANT!!! On the plus side at least no one has to put up with my bullshit in here lol. All sites have their pluses and minuses(well FE has the most and I'll let you contemplate which). It is the 4 for me still, DIF, DADS, MECCA, FE. Always will be!!

Well that's about 300 members just wiped out!!

No point in keeping anyone onboard if they're not joining in.  Shame really as there were some VERY familiar names in there too who are still quite active on other FME sites.  Anyway Fuck 'em, its their problem that they're maybe missing out on stuff.

Let's just put this into perspective a minute......

Since DADsFME came back from the dead a few years ago (yes we did close for a good long while) we've had a grand total of 1177 members sign up, but after this latest cull combined withe the ZERO posters policy, we now have 181 - SHOCKING innit?

Makes you wonder why we bother!!

HI Guys,
Webster here .(a leech)
Ex expat living in Manila, (who know nothing about Pinball, Arcades or Pokies!)
Been playing fruits for a very long time, Real and PC.

Just wondering if you have a Cabinet section, need some ideas, I am looking to make my own using a touchscreen and Simpletouch FE.
Anyone any better frontend suggestions (don't say Mgalaxy)?
Thanks,
Webster

Damn right Dad and I don't blame you as people who can't be bothered or take the piss can sling their hook. On the plus side you got rid of the weeds and have 181 roses, which is better?

You bother DAD because you enjoy what you do and because members like me appreciate all what you do!

As I've said before, DADsFME was the first FME site that I joined, the reason for that was I'd seen some fantastic images of lo-tech layouts that came from here, especially those Bar-X type ones and all with that now iconic DADsFME logo at the side.

The layouts you created were like the machines I would play so your site appealed to me and still does now.

This place is very significant to the FME scene so thank you... & long may DADsFME continue for another 18+ years!

Long overdue for another sweep of zero posters but because I'm in a good mood I'll give it another week or two :D

No disrespect to anybody but owning a few forums myself that were literally dead like this one, I started some provocative threads to garner some interest from a lazy membership. Did it work? To an extent...

Facebook has literally killed the living daylights out of theses platforms.

I would post more more but the generic nature of the site (making virtual machines) is well out of my expertise.

Degsy Degworth has mentioned the site a few times in his vids - it must have given it a bolster. Yet nobody posts...

I thank Admin for responding to my thread which has probably been seen by the lurkers with zero interaction.

Thankfully SMF is free and servers are relatively cheap.

I wish you all well and will push the site via my social media 100%. Please do likewise!!

I would hardly say Dads is dead as it links with DIF so maybe a bit of a better merger would make this place just as uplifting as DIF. I may not post much(to the relief of Dad having to put up with my bullshit as well😉) but know this, I will never forget here and it is not about money but whatever I give DIF always splits between here and there except for WFW.

It is my way of saying thank you and keeping me away from those thieving bastards in the arcades.

Always remember this place is historical and phenomenal rolled into one thanks to Dad and Reg.

I will also continue to promote the three sites(MPU MECCA to) by word of mouth and my group on FB which holds a generous 1700 odd members.

Not wearing that post,yes this site may not get the post counts others do. But valuable information help and layout building help this site is top draw for. We all appreciate this site and what the owner does for the scene so from were I'm coming from that's enough.
