Bill has changed the name from Bonanzle to Bonanza
apparently bought out the rights to the domain name, after the creator (?) of the original Bonanza series died (2 weeks ago)
all links are going to be redirected to the new name
also, there will be limited (if any?) BonanZA's allowed - they are revamping the entire BonanZA idea (where you can sell your items for a discounted price)
also, if you speak out about it, (like I did) you get your forum privileges taken away (like I did)
(edited: actually - he just skipped over the steps and completely removed my booths - no longer allowed to chat or list items or edit my booth on Bonanzle at all - mature, yes?! ::rollEyes::)
there are some (and rightly so) LIVID folks over there - no warning, no nothing - just we's gonna do it just becuz we can
and many sellers just paid out ton$ of money to have biz cards, banners, etc printed up with the old BonanZLE - now they are having to toss out all those to change it to BonanZA
and so close to Christmas!!!
what was he thinking?!!!!!
you know - announce it and all that - let folks know - lord knows, i wasn't enamored since the beginning with the name BonanZLE - but at least WARN them, first!
and do the name change AFTER the holidays -- good grief
must be the water ...
I am so sorry to hear all this about the venue. Since this IS a public group... please make sure you don't get yourselves into trouble. :)
Feel free to contact each other privately by using the messaging system here.
Make friends... then cc all the friends that you want to discuss issues with.
Again so sorry you guys have to be afraid to speak your mind there.... very sad indeed.
Good luck folks
@fioridizucca - not a clue who is diRECTlyresponsible - but Bill had to approve it in some way.
Like I said earlier - not much was said on the Bonanzle site (at least not as much as OTHERS stated, and they are still there ... ) - I think it's because I made comments on other venues/blogs - and because those same venues are public, AND read by the powers-that-be at the Bonz ... that had to be their decision-maker - I certainly didn't say anything on the Bonz to warrant complete deletion of all my booths.
But Elsie is right - they read this, too - so be careful of what you say in public - if you want to contact me directly, I'm at CoveredBridgeStore . at . Yahoo.com
Meanwhile - Happy selling to all!
