T4 - T5 Club FAQ's
|Added by: Dougie (Admin)
As we truly believe that as a members club, group, or community call them what you wish, depend upon the members participating in the website by submitting news, information, images or participating in a forum of some sort, thereby it is the member who is supplying the information, why should be then charge that member to access both it and other member submitted information, fact or image!
At T4 - T5 Club we do not believe we have a right to do so, we have been told on numerous occasions that the information we supply is eqaul if not better than some monthly magazines, in our editorial areas on our website alone, with the result, we should really be charging for access to it, if not for the entire website, however in answer to this we would counter by saying:
That here by the grace of god, i am available to write my own website community, which i enjoy and do for myself more over, any true member of this community by now will know me well enough to know what and why i do this, it most certainly is not for the fame, and it can't be for finacial gain, seeing as how there is none, being a wholly NON PROFIT community, [we simply have no income as yet [3/09], and what income we will ever realistically ever gain from this will only ever come via advertisers, companies in the Transporter line, and even then this will only ever be of minimal amounts to enable us to naturally grow, as time goes on to meet the bills insuing from such a community, should we ever get there, to a point where we need more "bandwidth", more anything which i do not forsee being an issue for sometime to come, [as a member you are always if you feel you wish to make a donation to our running costs you are able to do so HERE
.] so why do i do it then?
It is my hobby, my pass time and my passion, [both the website and the T4 - T5 Transporters], which is the honest truth of the matter, having previously been a member of another similar community taught me an awful lot about how it shouldn't be done, allowing me to go, put my thinking cap on and come back with what has widely been revered as a far better offering then where i previosly was stationed, now taking the view each to their own, where our focus is firmly set on the people, the vehicles and the scene in no particulat order, encouraging free speech, involvement and participation by all as an equal community.
With all this in mind we continue for the better good of all our members irrespective of creed, colour, nationality, model, year, colour, spec etc all as one happy family under the VW badge, just exactly as it should be, and we will continue to do so without charging a sit goes right against our very purpose for being here, i know what the costs thus far have been, and lets say a night in the pub would easily cover any costs i have had to bear, for after all what i gain great enjoyment from after all.
I trust this will explanation will cover any queries you might of had, in this respect however, if not, i welcome your questions via my e-mail at t4club.live.co.uk
Simply put as follows:
As a members club we expect, as a condition of FREE membership to T4 - T5 Club UK that ALL members SHALL, in any one calendar month participate at least twice in that month, in one way or another.
Be that by submitting to any one of our many features, allowing us to show some images of your T4 - T5, joining in on anyone of our numerous forum topics, submitting your "For Sale", "Wanted" or other adverts or via many other means throughout YOUR website.
We do this for 2 reasons:
Added by: Dougie [Founder Editor and Webmaster] (Admin)
1 - In an attempt to diswade 1 post wonders, from posting only the once, using our website to solely advertise their companies upon, or to reek havoc upon on our happy community, none of which we welcome nor want.
2 - Secondly we do this to encourage our members to join in, to take part and become involved with the content and design, along with the day to day running of our website, it is after all YOUR website, as such you should have a right of input into it's running.
We have found during the supsequent running of our T4 Camper domain, [our previous website], that this is a very effective way of keeping the bulk of our many members happy and sticking with us, effectively cutting down dramatically on infighting, stupid squabbles and down right character assination, as is rife elsewhere on similar communities to that of our own, which only leads to uncontrolable fights and such braeking out, which neither myself nor my team wish to witness, nor be forced to take action upon.
T4 - T5 Club was formed to attempt to combat this very thing, as such we will if nessesary take appropriate action at all times to combat such behaviour
Registering and signing in to our community, is really quite simple, although some members have experiences difficulty at the start, directions are below to rectify this, and it is usually a simple oversight and easily repaired.
