    Covid-19 suspension

    Due to the current situation of the Covid-19 virus pandemic causing entire countries to lock down, our members, families and businesses are hurting like at no other time in my memory.

    The majority of the companies that advertise on X Marks are small businesses with employees, bills, and overhead costs that continue even when the response to the virus mandates them to shut their doors.

    All of the members of X Marks benefit from our advertisers and their support of this forum. Without our advertisers we could not exist.

    As the owner of X Marks I wish to thank our advertisers for their support over the years and I do not wish the fees they pay to advertise here to be another worry or hardship during this period of uncertainty.



    I am therefore suspending all advertising payments for the next 60 days.

    In appreciation of the support of our advertisers, for the months of April and May 2020, all ads will continue in their current places and remain active without charge.

    On the 1st of June I will follow up with all of our advertisers about any revised or further plan.

    But for now, know that our advertisers will continue to receive my support and my thanks. I hope every member of this forum will join me in continuing to due business with the companies, that choose to spend their advertising money here, in support of you.

    Steve, that's a very generous act, well done.

    With some members having more time on their hands it is a good opportunity for some in depth discussion in various threads, such as those started by OC Richard. I encourage people to engage and help improve the collective knowledge of the group.

    While your gesture is very kind, and appreciated, I have this covered.

    It would be different if I needed the money to buy groceries. But X Marks has never been run to make a profit.

    The fees for advertising are much more vital to the advertisers right now than they are to me.
    If you truly wish to help, make a purchase from one of them.

    Very classy Steve. Well done!

    I pray this will all be over as soon as possible and we will be able to return to an approximation of normal life.
